Signs of recovery

You know how when you're sick, you toss kleenex into the trash can but your aim sucks and the trash can was full anyway and you miss, so they land on the floor? And you're sick, so instead of instantly picking them up you decide you'll deal with it later? And you eat some soup and set the bowl on the nightstand, and it just sort of never goes away?

This morning, the first thing I did when I got out of bed was to grab all that stuff and either throw it away or put it in the dishwasher. My throat still feels like it's been sandblasted, and I sound like I'm about to hack up a lung, but at least I'm making progress.

Tonight I looked at the near-rotting bananas in the kitchen and decided they needed to be banana bread. It's the first non-soup/yogurt/oatmeal/ice cream food I've eaten in a few days.
