I was supposed to be heading to First Event in Waltham tomorrow (Saturday) to do a reading at 11:30am, but unfortunately I have had to cancel.
I came down with a bug on Wednesday night and as of partway through Friday I still feel like I’ve been hit by a bus. The scary part is how much better I feel than I did for about thirty-six hours before now. This is just nasty, and I do not want to spread these germs.
Also, the weather in northeastern Massachusetts is supposed to be terrible tomorrow, from morning through evening, which doesn’t bode well for commuting in a decent amount of time. I was already concerned about making it there on time with a three hour drive, but looking at it stretch into longer (even with AWD on the car) made me realize that this isn’t going to happen.
I am really upset and sad that I cannot attend. I’ve been looking forward to this since I was invited to be there, and I wish everyone well. I hope that attendance is good despite the weather, and I will keep my icky germs to myself for the weekend. Take care all!
