I Have the Flu

Even my skin hurts. It is at times like this that I am soooo glad that I work at home. I could never go into an office. I can’t even contemplate getting dressed or brushing my hair — even that is painful. I think Rosie gave me the flu, but I still adore her.

The only good thing is that I have no appetite so maybe it doesn’t matter that I can’t go to the gym or ride my bike. In spite of this, I am working on my book and doing loads of editing for other people. I have a big dinner here on Friday night with my girlfriends from CHS — one of whom is here from England to collect an award for “Alumni of the Year.”

Susan is CEO of Emergent Asset Management Company — their fund has averaged 29% while other funds around the world are tanking…

I have some amazing friends…

    I, on the other hand, like the office routine. It allows me to compartmentalize my life a little and so when I’m at home I can relax and just deal with the thousand and one things involved in being an active parent, maintaining the house and volunteering in the community. Being part of a bureaucracy is entertaining as well – some days are like fascinating mash-ups of Yes, Minister, the Office, Seinfeld and Survivor. Sorry to hear you have the flu though. As a dedicated cycle commuter am also happy to see that you are mitigating all that carbon heavy air travel by cycling around Vancouver. Get well soon.
