Nicole and Coryn are scurrying to get their Nano word counts to where they are supposed to be.
Caspian is dealing with the discomfort in the aftermath of toe nail surgery.
Joseph is getting over his cold and still sneezing and coughing.
Tami is trying to catch up on deadlines (a never-ending battle) and yes, now she has the family cold.

Apparently Tami's recovery period includes detailed delusions.
