Achy throats and sicky days

How I need to take a day off. I feel like my days have been stuffed with work and I can't commit to more work before I get some time off. My throat feels like a scratchy towel is down my larynx. I also have a late sleep time issue these days, can't get to sleep before midnight, although I know that I'll be able to change that once I stop watching tv until midnight. I can see a weekend of early evenings.

I found the townhouse last week after an hour and a half on the public transport system, and waiting for A to pick me up at the corner store (I turned left when I should have turned right). The place looks like it's in good shape, repainted, retiled, and much bigger than I remembered. I may be able to put my furniture in there after all. I've also been able to get a stove and some shelves for books. Once the place looks ready to be cleaned, I'll borrow the maid to do a sweep and a polish all over, then start moving in items over a couple of weekends. I want to be in by the first week of October.

I'm debating over whether or not to go on LOA at school. I don't think I can afford to be in class this semester. I also have to think about whether this program is what I want to do. Perseverance, I know, is the key to successfully completing the program, not being burdened by failing the classes.

I think the book How to be Idle is making me yearn to go on a sicky. Love that term. I'm sicky today.

Hopefully traffic won't be so bad tonight and I'll be able to pick up my adidas bag from bound. I'll lug another load of books over Sunday.
