Robin Has Been Started, and So Has a Head Cold

Robin and Michaela's story has been started. The outline had to be updated a little bit to reflect the last three books (I wrote it back when I was mid-way through Dare to Believe), and am just at the point where Robin is going to see Michaela for the first time. He's going to be charmed, but not enough to go off-mission... not yet, anyway.

Of course, just as I get started, I get a fever.

Maybe because he doesn't want my cold? It could happen...

I should have known when M, who is never out sick from school, wound up staying home for three days last week. Even Dusty, who gave M his immune system, was sick for almost a week. There's no way the black hole of disease could miss that one.

What my sinuses really look like.
So here I am, sniffling and trying to remember how to be witty while the cat looks at me and wonders why I'm making those funny noises. You know, the ones where you breathe in, but then there's this little popping sensation, and you realize that other people around you could hear that and politely tell you to blow your nose?

Yeah. That. 

Maybe I'll skip witty and go with sincere.
