These last few days have been pretty horrible. Not only has work been crushingly busy with tight deadlines but I have either a cold or bad allergies (or both.) My throat and ears are full of snot frequently and right now I can’t even hear out of my right ear. I really wish we could be taking better advantage of Coastal Carolina’s spring break, but my workload is preventing it. I also wish I could be taking serious antihistamines, but I can’t afford to be drowsy any time except when I am going to bed.
