I’m working on my writing while I recover from the flu that has plagued me for the past two mornings.
I’m hoping it goes away in the next four or five mornings so I can have my friend visit while she’s still in the country.
She is currently in another city for a dance class and will be there for five more mornings before returning here for a couple of mornings before heading back to Finland. I haven’t seen her in about two years, ever since my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech ex and I split up, but my pal and I remained friends, and I undoubtedly hope to see another heating worker friend before she returns home. I still have a few mornings to use, so I’m trying to sleep as much as possible so that this thing is knocked out by my body’s energy and immune system. I sleep in air conditioned comfort at night, so the fever doesn’t bother me as much, and I also have a HEPA filter in my air conditioner component, which may help with keeping the air clean at night. I’m not going to do anything today except work on these articles and do my yoga session; otherwise, I’ll be resting and eating healthy foods to refuel my body and make it strong again. My Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning rep told me that these illnesses my pal and I get are a sign that the body needs to cleanse itself, and that when my pal and I get better, we are stronger versions of ourselves.
