One of those days …

I feel like I’m fighting a losing battle today. I’m trying to get this next section of my dissertation written but my brain refuses to string two coherent paragraphs together ( I do know why, I didn’t get enough sleep). It will write one, then another, but they have little correlation to each other except that one goes at the beginning and the other at the end. It isn’t any help at all. And then, when I think I might just get that consecutive paragraph, I cough. This is getting frustrating.

The cough is a hangover from the cold, but largely due to having taken my cat to the vet yesterday for his annual injections and receiving a chest full of fur. Most of the time it doesn’t affect me, but I reacted yesterday. All the way home I had to tell myself to not scratch. I haven’t taken an antihistamine today, I did yesterday, but I think I’m still feeling the effects of the fur.

I really want to get this written so I’m trying to plug away at it for another hour or so. I expect that my brain’s ability to write two paragraphs in sequence will kick in around midnight.
