Eau du VapoRub

 (Source: Wikimedia Commons)

So, I came down with cold again last week. I feel like it should be impossible, since I already had one at the end of September. It's as if that cold were the biological equivalent of painting sacrificial lamb's blood over my door, so as to ward off the angel of death. Yes, I don't know how colds work anymore, even though I found the image above on the Wikipedia article about the common cold. Please do not enlighten me. Bla bla bla...I'm not listening.

I'm still pretty serious about getting a lot of work done in the next 2.5 weeks, so I don't really have time for this being sick shit. After resting up this weekend, I can only hope to be fit enough to make it through the upcoming week, especially tomorrow. Until then, I will be slathered in a fine layer of Vicks VapoRub.

On a good note, I managed to get lights up in the kitchen, living room, and bedroom. Adiós, floor lamps (except for when mood lighting is necessary)! I now have curtains, as well (except in the bedroom). I didn't actually do the hanging up and drilling myself, so I can't take full credit. However, I did pass tools, hold the ladder, and make coffee (not simultaneously). Curtains and lights were actually a big one on the list, as far as making the year feel complete and I'm glad I can cross them off.

I'll see how many others I can get to in the weeks to come. I can only barely believe that the year is almost over.  But that's not new.

I'll also try to write less boring things. Just in general.

Get better and congrats on the bang up coffee-tool-handling-ladder-holding job!

It was an honor and a privilege to hold the ladder and make the coffee for you, captain!
