Rest Disguised as Illness

Nothing summons The Rest Fairy* quicker than getting sick. Monday I woke up with body aches and I still have them today, so everything in my Day Planner has been canceled or postponed. (Which is secretly sort of a relief. Which is a sign itself I've overextended myself.)

*The Rest Fairy reminds me of Glinda the Good Witch--kind, glittery, sweet, soft-spoken but powerful. You can resist her only so long before her magic wand becomes an attention-grabbing sledgehammer (or falling house) to the head and you're knocked on your ass for days.
