Emily's home! Yay! We plan to attend various Christmas/birthday events, cuddle a lot, run around a little, and watch a lot of Doctor Who and Torchwood (thanks, Jamie!)

Sadly, I haven't been a very good host so far. The weekend before I left to pick her up I came down with a horrible head cold. I hid from her just how sick I was and didn't mention it much on LJ, because I didn't want her to worry that I wouldn't be able to take the trip; then I spent the weekend cleaning house when I probably should have been in bed, resting.

My theory was that, with a healthy dose of vitamins and fluids, I'd be all better by the time I took off to drive 18 hours in two days. Instead, it's settled into my sinuses and, to a lesser extent, my lungs, and I feel like death warmed over. (What does that feel like, really?) All I want to do is lay down and moan, and not in a good way. It's one of those things where I don't feel like I'm seriously ill, just full of those annoying minor illness symptoms that make a person frustrated and exhausted. (Could I possibly use any more Kleenex?) I just can't imagine I'm all that much fun to live with.

But everybody is sick right now, it seems, and lots of them sicker than me. A few more days and I'll be right as rain -- and that's good, because her birthday's coming up in a week! Now I have to figure out how to make her the perfect birthday ...
