So I am sick with yet another illness this week. This time, a regular honest-to-goodness (or awfulness) cold virus. I have been taking the NyQuil and the DayQuil and generally trying to lay low while also seeing to my responsibilities (see: work, school, boyfriend) but it's kind of rough. At least I can sleep, thanks to the medication, a humidifier, and my weirdly messed up brain. When I am healthy, it takes a lot for me to get to sleep, but when I am sick, it's lights out almost as soon as I hit the pillow. Go figure.

Today after work, I called S, and he informed me that his cousin Nate would be picking him up to go flying very soon, and he would like it very much if I could go with to Buffalo with them and possibly even go up in the plane. What else was I going to do this afternoon, with next week as my spring break from class? Nate is working on getting a real job as a pilot—he needs more twin engine time to apply for jobs—and also one of my former high school classmates. Kind of weirdly cool to go up in a little plane with the kid I sat behind in history class in 10th. Good times.

Now, to let the medication kick in once again and try to kick this bug.

Sounds like a good time to me, Beth. Take lots of photos while you're up there! I hope the cold gets better. Remember, the shower is the best place to blow your nose. Seriously.

I think that there is something going around. Sophia and I have both got colds. Yuck. Hope you feel better.
