mellicious: pink manicure (winter trees)
(Part of this was written yesterday.)

I am writing this entry on Notepad because the writing of it is liable to be on-again, off-again. Rob will be home in a little while, and usually that is his designated computer time, and even if he doesn't want it, I've been sitting here most of the afternoon and I think I am ready to go lie down again.

I am sickly today. I don't exactly know why. I didn't sleep well last night, partly because my sinuses were acting up, and partly because I am just an insomniac, at least that's what I thought. I dragged out of bed around 7:15 and got dressed and started out the door to work and I just felt awful. And like I said, I am something of an insomniac and I am fairly accustomed to dragging myself to work in a sleep-deprived state, but today was different, somehow. Rob could tell, even - he told me to go back to bed if I wanted to, and he doesn't usually really encourage me to do that. So I did. I took an ambien and called and left a message at work that I wouldn't be in this morning, and went back to bed and slept til nearly noon.

And if it was mostly lack of sleep that was the problem, then I should be all cured, right? Four more hours of sleep ought to have been plenty. But no, I got up and started to get dressed and I still felt like crap. Just kind of generalized symptoms - achy, etc. I hope to god I'm not coming down with the flu. (I've had a flu shot, so I shouldn't be. But doesn't that sound suspiciously like it?)

Anyway. I really meant to write about my weekend. But really, this weekend was mostly like most of my weekends, except for the extra day. So I will content myself with saying that we went to see Munich, and I really liked it a lot. I have now seen three of the five Best Picture candidates, and I would put Munich in the middle, Brokeback Mountain at the bottom, and Capote at the top. And actually, Munich is a fairly close second; it has grown on me a bit in the couple of days since I've seen it. (Brokeback, for whatever reason, is sort of going the opposite way in my mind. I liked it better the first couple of days than I do now.)

(Now it's today, not yesterday!) I went to work today, and felt better, but I am still sort of achy and tired. My latest theory is that I actually have a mild case of the flu, and the flu shot is keeping it from getting any worse. Let's hope it's that, and not incipient bronchitis or something.
