Terra Nostra and The Sickness

it’s been a pretty sparse week for updates. First, I just grew overly tired and frustratedwith  Carlos Fuentes’ Terra Nostra. It’s over 800 pages long, starts slow and keeps going slow. While reading it (I got a little over 200 pages in) I knew there were things that could have been researched to provide more richness to the story, and it would have probably helped to have known a bit of Latin, but engaging in a novel as research project was simply something I didn’t have in me. If given a different temperment, I might have kept going. But, right now, I just don’t have it in me.

And this week I haven’t felt capable of much of anything. After “camping” with my g/f’s family for all of one night, I got sick. A drainage/sinus/throat thing that has made me feel like crap all week. It’s drained me of energy, it’s made me feel miserable, I’ve been running a fever, etc. And because I may or may not be overmedicating myself at night with night time cold medicine, I have had an increasingly difficult time getting out of bed in the morning.  I don’t tend to read directions but to just fill to the top line whatever little plastic shotglass is next to the medicine bottle. I should check to see if the top line on the glass corresponds to the correct dosage listed on the bottle.

Oh, and I screwed up my back over the weekend and it’s still not feeling right, either.  As you can see, it’s been a lovely week.
