Damn you, cold bug!

The argument could be made that you NEVER get sick at a good time.

Stomach viruses, colds and flus tend to crop up with pinpoint timing just when you need them least: You're preparing for a big presentation at work, or planning to see your child's piano recital, or embarking on a long-needed vacation, or playing in a crucial softball game in your league.

It's certainly happened to me this week! I started getting a scratchy throat and a dry, persistent cough round-about Tuesday. And I seemed to have less and less energy as the week wore on. By yesterday (Friday), I was barely able to gently get through my morning yoga class. Then the hacking cough, runny nose, and greenish phlegm (yuck!) began in earnest last night.

And guess what? I have an incredibly busy week coming up, starting with a fancy mansion party tonight that I've been planning to attend for at least a month. Then tomorrow (Sunday), the Delray Beach Film Festival kicks off with a 4-11 p.m. Battle of the Bands.

Since I've been on the planning committee for the March 22-28 film fest for six months now -- and have committed myself to the task of organizing and running a recycling program at all of the major parties, as well as a beach cleanup next Saturday -- I can hardly crawl into bed and sleep for the next week! (Though, of course, that's exactly what I'd like to do!)

I'll soldier though, of course, and probably enjoy myself despite this illness inconvenience. ... But I'm sure it's not going to be easy!

Damn you, cold bug-- damn you!
