I was doing way too much coughing yesterday evening. So much so that I took some of my codeine cough medicine and slept past my meeting time. Now I am dragging. I wish I could get to the cause of this thing. It was very humid yesterday. Maybe that is a factor.

In any case, my vacation is drawing to a close. :-(

I hope everyone has a good day!
