Sick weekend

Sims has been a bit of a sick boy recently.  He has a pretty nasty cough but seems in good spirits.  He didn't sleep well Friday night because of his coughing fits, which meant I had about 5 hours of interrupted sleep.  Not good, considering I had to work on Saturday at the university's Open House.  I'm the organizer of my department's efforts at Open House, so I have to be there early and stay late.  I was on my feet for 4+ hours talking to prospective students and trying to be happy and enthusiastic about our program.  Let's face it - that's exhausting!  It doesn't sound like much, but it wears me out every year.

Wouldn't you know it that soon after I got home in the early afternoon, I realized that I was more than exhausted.  I was getting sick.  So much for doing anything fun on Saturday.  I was feeling a little better on Sunday but not 100%.  Luckily, I'm feeling better today - just in time to go back to work.  Isn't that always the way?

I was so looking forward to a weekend at home.  Oh, well.  Maybe next weekend.  And after 10+ years of faithfully going to the Parade of Homes, we did not go this year, and I don't really mind.  Who am I?
