I’ve had a cold, then I caught the flu over the weekend. Double-whammy. My mild fever on Monday night shot to 39.3C (103F) the next day. Man, it was so brutal. I didn’t know what to do with myself as even lying in bed hurt and getting up worsened my headache. I couldn’t take a shower even though I was sweating like crazy. It was pure hell, the sickest day of my adult life. I basically forced myself to eat so that I could take medication.

Bernachon sells out on the first day, a weekday, of Salon du Chocolat. These white bars were the only thing left yesterday morning.

Management of the apartment sent their staff over first thing this morning to fix my bathroom faucet. Finally. They replaced it with the brand new one and also fixed a leaky faucet in the kitchen as well as a leaky shower head. So I’m grateful. I’m also still sick. Sick and eating chocolate, ha.
