Piffle. Just today I finished the last of my office obligations by enduring an audit I've been working toward for the last two months (okay, between DC posts
) and for the last couple of weeks I just kept telling myself "okay, never mind, get through the audit and then if you really scramble you can do some Christmas baking and a bit more shopping and get the gifts all wrapped and the house tidyed up before
Christmas eve ..."
... and you know what? By 1:30 I was done with the audit, and by 2:30 I knew it wasn't my imagination that every time I swallowed my throat hurt. It's now 5:30 and both my ears ache and my throat feels HORRIBLE and something nasty's brewing in my sinuses.
$#@&* does this have to hit NOW?!
