Sometimes everything happens at once in your life, and for me today was one of those times. I'd been feeling tired and run-down for the last week or so, and the venostasis ulcer on my right leg had reopened, leaking lymph fluid all over. Fun times.

On top of that, the fall semester has been underway for a week, but I had let time slip away from me (the illness didn't help) and so had to jump through my butt to get signed up for classes, make arrangements to get money for books, and get my financial aid unblocked by changing from a career studies certificate to an associate degree.

But wait! There's more! I was helping friends fix up the house they're moving into, but now that I'm eating Bactrim twice a day to keep the bacteria from eating me alive, I'm pretty wiped out and haven't any energy to speak of. So I won't be helping them this weekend, or IWho either.

And we're supposed to get whacked with a hurricane this weekend too. Well, it could be worse. I could be living in Pyongyang.
