An adult human head weighs around 10 pounds, but you could've fooled me on Sunday. I swear mine weighed 50 or so.
I suffer seasonal allergies off an on during this time of year (weeds), but they're usually something a couple snorts of Zicam can easily thwart. Sunday, though, I woke up with the extra poundage. I don't think it was allergies alone. I think a cold virus snuck in and conspired with my allergies to wage a major snot war.
Really, I must've discharged about five gallons or more of the stuff throughout the day. And that's mostly all I remember from Sunday, although I do see that I managed a blog post.
I don't remember feeling particularly "sick". In fact, I'm pretty sure I went for a bike ride in the morning, and we did some shopping of some sort for Meego's vivarium. But the day is all a bit of a blur because of the 50-lb. head.
Yesterday, I felt much more myself and spent most of the day engaging in cleaning house and other forms of housewifery. So much for holiday weekends.
Today, my one class was cancelled - the university gave us an extra Labor Day day. Something to do with keeping the MWF classes even with the TTH ones, well whatever, we had a free day. Then the mom of my Tuesday tutee called. The tutee had her wisdom teeth removed late last week, and her head was still throbbing. Could we reschedule this week?
And just like that, I found myself with a Dumb Tuesday!
...not that I did anything particularly Dumb/Special.
In summary, I ran some errands, saw Chaco (he involved one of the errands), partook of a bit more of the housewifery, read some of my current novel, and had a nap. Good times.
I thought to do some lesson planning, but then...
Yay for Dumb days.
