I just wanted to apologize for not being online as much this week. I came down with the flu and now a sinus cold (I can hardly hear out of my ears and all sounds seem off-pitch). It makes me aware of how complex it is to hear things and all it takes is one little thing and that throws everything else off.
I wish I was with you right now, being able to lie in your arms as I go to sleep, as I know Iíd be able to get a very restful sleep. Iíve been trying to get as much sleep as I can, but I have training going on all week and then Iíll be on the phones come next Monday. My best friend Leslie keeps telling me to call in sick for the first few days of next week, but I just canít afford it as I need to pay rent and a growing number of bills. I hopefully will come out of February in good shape, although right now I wish I didnít have to go to work tomorrow.
Just wanted to let you know Iím thinking of you and when I get better, and then Iíll be online as much as I used to be and we can talk again. For now, though, I need to get my sleep (like right now).
Hope youíre doing well and I look forward to talking with you soon.
