Lisa’s Week In Review: 1/20/20 — 1/26/20


Well, this week kind of sucked.  Things started out okay but then I got massively sick on Thursday and I’m only now really starting to recover.  So, basically, I’ve been out-of-it for the last four days.  (Actually, it’s more like the last 4-and-a-half days because I first started to feel a little bit ill around Wednesday evening.)

Anyway, I’ve been forcing myself to rest and “get better” and all that good stuff.  It sucks because I’m not very good at resting but oh well.  Here’s what I was able to accomplish this week, despite being under the weather.  (I mentioned on twitter that I was “under the weather” and a total stranger responded with something about how there’s this huge conspiracy to control the weather and really, folks — don’t start that shit when you’re talking to someone who is already feeling ill and, therefore, not in a particularly indulgent mood.  I’ve never hit the block button so fast in my life.)
