|I feel like I don't run this body lately.|

I still have the same nasty cold as last weekend although it's less nasty now. On Sunday I ran a little bit on the treadmill, finally feeling more bored than sick. On Friday night, though, my sore throat had gotten so bad that I couldn't eat, talk, or even move my head from side to side.
And yes, I said E. coli. It was found in our water distiller last week. Not all strains cause the violent food poisoning symptoms so we were lucky to avoid that. However, when I reached out to other distiller owners I learned that it can be the source of a "general malaise," which we have definitely had in this household for a few weeks. Not quite sick, but feeling yucky all the time. I'm feeling less yucky since I stopped drinking from that distiller on Thursday.
Since the root canal, my tooth still doesn't have a crown. I'm not sure of the exact reason but I suspect they wanted my cold to clear up before I went around breathing all over the office and people stuck their fingers in my mouth. That makes sense. I've had the permanent filling in for over a week now and the tooth feels fine. Frankly, I've been too stuffed up and had too sore of a throat to contemplate sitting in the dentist's chair any time soon.
Every time I try to do yoga, my sinuses start pounding when I put my head down, so I'm taking the rest of the month off from my classes. I'll start up again in March. Our housekeeper should be back to work this week so I can get out to the treadmill a couple times while she baby-sits Muffin.
I hope that we can only get better from here. We need a few weeks of good health and activity before the summer heat saps us of all our energy.
