Current Health, and Gaming

Got up this morning at the usual 5:30 am, feeling as if I had only had four hours of sleep. Went to bed at 10:30 pm last night, after taking a couple of Tylenol and a mouthful of sugar-free cough syrup, and slept right through to the alarm. So I know I had at least six hours worth of sleep. Doesn't seem to be making a difference where this respiratory infection is concerned. My voice is raspy, to say the least, this morning, but I don't feel as bad as I did the last couple of days. A lot of folks have got this bug, whatever it is, as witnessed by tcpip, lynne_h, doc_mystery and several other folks that I know.

Fortunately, it's Friday, so I get off relatively early, around 1:00 pm. At least four folks here at work, including my boss, are down with the infection, so we're not being as productive as we normally might be. I'm just glad that when I got back from Paris there wasn't a lot of stuff waiting for me on my desk, and work's been pretty relaxed this week.

On the gaming front, I have decided that I am going to try and run the Friday night gaming group tonight only if I feel a bit better by mid-afternoon. Since SteveB and Tom and his sister, Joanne, are all down with the bug as well, it might be better if I don't run the game tonight, especially since I don't want Kathy to catch the bug as well (although she may have already done so from SteveB), especially with the baby to take care of. The group is getting back into The Dying Earth RPG, published by Pelgrane Press, so it's no big deal if I don't start it this week. I haven't quite decided what to do this weekend about the Sunday group. spross has got the bug as well, although not as virulently as some folks, but I think that we'll play on Sunday; if I'm not up to running, spross has said that he'll run a game, so I can play a bit. They're in the middle of a Hollow Earth Expedition adventure that should take another session, maybe two, so I really want to run this one, if possible, but we'll see how I feel.

Anyway, back to work and some more herbal tea.
