Fortunately, I got to rest at home all day. Yesterday, the flu “bloomed” and the dripping nose and sneezing began. It continued overnight, making it a little uncomfortable to lay my head as I pleased. The infection moved up into the head.
As it is exam week, there are no normal classes. I had no work to do. Though I had wanted to go out and do grocery shopping and such, I felt it best to stay home.
The symptoms are moderate, but I took a 24-hour painkiller this afternoon. I do have aches and pains in the upper body, and generally low energy. Of course, I am not doing workouts this week because of this condition.
I have been drinking all sorts of liquids. I had green tea with honey and vitamin C packed citrus powder. I had some Thai instant noodle soup and bacon that one of the Thai colleagues gave to me yesterday. It sure came in handy. I used the last of a packet of instant mushroom soup too.
One task came up. I did some correspondence for KOTESOL today. With our Annual Business Meeting and elections coming up in November, I wanted to look at our By-laws. It turns out they have long disappeared without a trace for several years. I therefore had to draw up such a legal document. I was not in a good mood for it, but I think I did it competently. I just referred to our National Constitution. There are regionalizations and changes, so it is additional business for our Chapter council and our Chapter general membership business meeting in three weeks.
