It's been a long and tumultous week and next week is already shaping up to be the same. I've been spending my Sunday lounging around, taking cat naps, and cooking here and there.

I've been sick as a dog these past few days. I don't know what it is; I've had a low grade fever (99) and an incredibly sore throat---and now I have a cough. Ugh.
