Cough, Cough, Hack, Sneeze

Day 26:

Well, I’m sick. I’ve come down with the crud, which might not be scientific (and certainly not specific) but has given me the perfect excuse to  skip day 26 of the 31 day challenge. But if I give up now (what would Edmund Hillary do? Didn’t I just ask him that the other day? Does it matter that he hasn’t gotten back to me?) … but I won’t.

Because it feels as if I’ve spent my life giving up at the slightest provocation. My art, my writing, my goals, my voice.

Besides, it’s only a cold. My husband brought home orange juice. And pudding for my sore throat. He’s fed the cats and fussed over me a bit and then left me to my books and my boxes of tissues.

Life is good. I’ll be glad when I’m well again.

But I’m especially pleased to be blogging with all of you today!

  1. Hurray! You blogged even when you were sick! Only a few more days left to go! Hope you feel better soon!

    This line intrigues me. It feels like it could be a whole post. “Because it feels as if I’ve spent my life giving up at the slightest provocation. My art, my writing, my goals, my voice.”

  2. Love that you aren’t giving up, even though it might look easy to do. It isn’t is it!? I’m hoping you feel better, but even more, I’m hoping you are proud of not giving up!

  3. I had the busiest week last week with a family of friends over and thought I wouldn’t have time to write. There were a couple of posts that were super short. I keep pushing up to now and I think until the very end as we have our own struggles to deal with. We can make it! And I hope you feel better.
