This is going to be a short post this week, as I evidently have the cold that just keeps coming back, and spent the last day and a half home from work…with my partner, who also caught the cold. So it’s been a sleepy, sniffly, coughing mess at our house lately, and I feel like I’ve sort of lost track of what day it is.
On a brighter note, here’s a list of three things that have kept me smiling between coughing fits:
- I started listening to the Welcome to Night Vale podcast last week. I’m over halfway through the backlog of episodes already. It’s been exactly the sort of weird, dark humor that I’ve needed in the midst of some frustration with work and other life things.
- As annoying as being sick has been for both of us, it’s been nice to have some extra time to hang out with my partner during the week. Our weekday schedules tend to be packed on opposite days, so the bulk of our quality time together tends to be on the weekends.
- We just finished watching the season of the Great British Baking Show that’s on Netflix, and that was absolutely delightful. It’s a total departure from the cutthroat attitude of most American shows of that genre. We laughed, we cried, we got super attached to most of the bakers, and by about halfway through the season really just wanted everyone to win.
