While I'm happy that I was able to go and spend the time with my sister and get her out of the nursing home for half a day, it was clearly a lot of work for me as well. Also, I'm only still just getting back to normal after that horrible cold. After work today, I fell into bed before 3 PM and slept for about three hours. I was then able to get up and go with Lisa to do some grocery shopping, and I feel a bit better now, but I still am not completely myself.
I have a couple of weeks to prepare for spending a week down in the Bay Area. The travel gets harder the older I get, obviously.
