I jinxed it. Ellen came down with a cold overnight last night and we didn’t sleep much.

I called in tired to work today.

At first I felt guilty, but then I let that go because I have been “on” for so long, frequently running on fumes, that it makes sense that I needed a day to recuperate.

And I do feel better. It did help. We will see what tonight brings – it could be more of the same – but no matter what, today did me good.

Bonus – I actually witnessed Ellen, Queen of Inertia, roll from back to front this evening!
