No, not along the lines of the Chinua Achebe novel Things Fall Apart. But I'm feeling frail at the moment: just when I fix one part of my body, another starts having problems.
Summer cold almost gone, except for the heavy cough that happens sporadically. Spent the whole weekend drugged to the gills on Myprodol (strong pain killers) though, because I had a bad toothache since Saturday afternoon. And lucky me, dentists around here close around 1pm on Saturday and don't have emergency hours. So i just had to persevere until today. Didn't move from the bed beyond getting more Myprodol every four hours and knocking myself out with sleeping pills at night.
Feel better today; at least, numb enough to work. Have set up an appointment with dentist for later in the day.
Looking forward to author sending me book 6. Once that's done, I'll be able to focus more on the holiday season.
