As per usual when I am in NY in the winter and/or spend a lot of time traveling by air, I got sick. Fortunately, the worst of it arrived late New Year's Day, after all the holiday shenanegans were over. Honey lemon tea and spicy stuff hasn't been quite enough to clear my sinuses and sooth my throat. Anu taking me out to buy my first major wardrobe overhaul in at least five years has, at least, distracted me from being sick. But being sick is not all bad -- it was a good excuse to just relax, take naps, and eschew stressing about anything for the last 3 days (and that is what it takes to get me to fully relax, otherwise I'm perpetually thinking I should be working on something).
