Back on my feet

Feeling far better today. Actually made a proper dinner tonight, and in an insane burst of energy washed the dishes.

I've never had a cold knock me on my heels like this before. A few night's ago I woke up in the night and was so disoriented I literally couldn't figure out where I was or what we going on. I had to turn on the lights and wander thru my place to get my head back in the game.
