In other news, I also figured out why I was so tired today when I went down for what was supposed to be an (already uncharacteristic) 2-hour nap and woke up 2 hours later to find that my ability to speak had been replaced by a fever. Adrenaline sometimes makes me more functional than I should be.

I went back to sleep for another 5 hours and then woke up to take care of some things I needed to get done today. I've done them all except for two, so I am going to do those two things now, ignore everything else, and get another couple hours of sleep before the next day starts. I'm actually extremely functional - I just need lots of sleep right now, so I'm going to try budgeting actual 8-hour workdays for the rest of the week (a weird concept that I've never actually voluntarily tried).

The next few days (assuming my immune system takes as much time to recover as I expect) may be an educational exercise in prioritization; Greg reminded me of the difference between "urgent" and "important" today, and I have been spending too much time on the first and not enough time on the second. It's not enough to do things; I have to do the right things, since I very well can't do everything. I did a great job of prioritization last year when I was sidelined with RSI; I need to learn how to do it when I'm not sick or injured.

Let us try this. I can do this for 3 days, right?
