Just as I've begun to enjoy the fall weather, I've come down with a cold/flu thing. I've been drinking lots of tea and water and taking cold medicine so hopefully I'll be better by my birthday - which is Wednesday by the way - although I'll accept birthday wishes earlier. 35, it's a big one. I remember I thought I was old when I turned 25. In addition to the flu, I'm having my customary pre-birthday blues. I have no plans for my actual birthday, but will be celebrating next week at PVC.
