I'm definitely starting to get a cold (or something). I'm getting a cough, and I felt like I had a fever today. When I took my temperature tonight, it was 98.5. Yesterday it was 96.3. I think I need a new thermometer.

Anyway, I'm not feeling really sick yet. I don't know whether to hope that I get really sick so that I get better or whether I should hope that I don't get really sick at all. This in-between stage is annoying.

I did some more organizing of my desk today. I keep the oddest things. Seriously, do I need my bus pass from grade 9? My union card from a job in 1990? A piece of styrofoam? Three random batteries (not matching)? Anyway, my quest to get the desk cleaned out is not yet over.


  1. Since Saturday my seasonal allergies have been really nasty - I think due to the warm weather [I don't know if it's warm in Ottawa, though?]. I'm pretty doped up on children's Claritin as all adult allergy meds make me loony.

    How long have you lived in your current home? I find when I don't move, I collect and become even more of a packrat.

  2. I never think of allergies, even though Ottawa is a hotbed of allergic reactions. I wonder if that's what's going on - it has been exceptionally nice here lately.

    I've lived here for 9 years and you're right - the longer you're in one place, the more you collect.
