I’ve been pushing myself pretty hard the last few weeks and one night without a warm enough blanket seems to have undone my plans to get a large amount of work done this weekend. I went to work with swollen lymph nodes and an awareness of my sleep debt, but I only put in a few hours of reading before I was too tired to continue.

I returned home for sleep, but my rhythm has been thrown off completely. I am now mildly medicated, but no sleep seems likely for the next few hours. Thankfully my son was no bother to watch while my wife went and picked up my medicine. It’s not really that bad of a cold yet, but my general exhaustion has slowed my recovery. I think a few extra hours of rest would solve this problem easily, but I’d have to find a way to make that time available first.
