Oh, man. I thought I was escaping this dreaded cold, but I feel terribler today. What’s worse, my dear Girl has got it, along with the Wife. So we’re all waking each other up all night. The Girlie is all slurpy, and her whine is very scratchy. She sleeps so lightly that I’m just creeping around the house all day, praying that she’ll get some rest. Poor kid.
