On Tuesday, I had the feeling that I had had some caffeine and that was not the case. I was feeling full of energy, other than a quick moment after lunch. I was wondering why I was almost even feeling jittery.

I went to bed, wanting to fall asleep soon because I knew that I had to get to Oakton earlier than normal since I am tutoring a student in second year French.

It is not a good idea to go to bed and really want to fall asleep fast.

My body and the remnants of a cold got the best of me. I ended up going into another bedroom as I had a tickle in my throat that kept making me cough. The cold I had seems to be gone but the cough has lingered, as it often does.

I did get to do a good amount of reading, thank goodness for the third book of the Inspector Gamache series of Louise Penny.

I awoke around seven realizing that I had to get up and I was only operating on about five hours of sleep.

That happens. So I got to Oakton by about 8:45 AM and tutored my student till close to 10:00 AM. Then I did my ESL Conversation Hour and followed it with a French Conversation Hour. Unfortunately, my leftover cold caught up with me and the tickle came back during the ESL session and luckily Beth was in the lab to get me a glass of water.

I ended up in the gym and made sure to spend time in the steam room. The cough seems to be more under control and I am tired. I am guessing that sleep tonight will not be an issue.
