Slowly but surely I am recovering from a very bad cold that started almost two whole weeks ago. The last time I was this sick for this long was during the Blizzard of 1996, 21 years ago. Then, I didn't have a wife, kids, a business, or a house to worry about. So this time around has been far more disruptive and far more frustrating.
Even worse, everyone else has been sick too, so in addition to not feeling well and having to hold my schedule loosely on account of that, we've all had to be nimble in light of not knowing how kids are doing and whether doctor visits are needed. Thankfully, no one was too sick for too long. But it has still been a slog. Breathing slightly easier now but boy were we hit hard.
