Back in the Saddle Again

Aerosmith seems so appropriate for how I feel today: spunky, funky and ready to kick a little a$$.  You see, last week, I had the crud from hades.  Strep throat supreme.  But, thanks to 3.5 days at home, super strong antibiotics and lots of rest, I’m feeling much, much better.  Usually I complain that I’d love some time at home to relax.  I’ve learned, however, that there’s a big difference between being home relaxing and being home sick.  I’m infinitely grateful to be back at work today; I couldn’t stand one more minute of being stuck inside the four walls of my seriously messy house, but not having the energy to do anything but lay in bed and chug sore throat spray.  I was ready to go bonkers being stuck in that house!  Now that I’m back in almost-100% condition, I’m thinking there’s some serious housework to be done.  I hate having a dirty house (unfortunately, that’s its normal condition due to time constraints and school/work obligations). 


Oh, and thanks to Suze! The ruffle scarf you sent me is awesome, and just happens to be one of my favorite colors.  It will also look gorgeous with my off-white pea coat, once the temperatures drop enough for me to wear it - high of 94 today; don’t think I’ll be wearing a scarf or coat just yet! ;-)


Well, I have a mountain of reports to tackle. Off I go!


P.S. Ann, is today your birthday, or is it really close to your birthday?  If so, happy birthday!  If not, a very merry unbirthday to you!


P.P.S.S. Mama Tooz, hope you continue to recover from your surgery.  I’ve been thinking of you!

Is Jamie all better too? I hope so. It feels great when you are finally well again, doesn't it?

Yes, Jamie was feeling just dandy as of Saturday afternoon, meaning he spent half of Saturday and all day Sunday annoying the pee out of me. Not his fault, but still annoying.

Today! Thank you!

Thank you for your kind thoughts. Other than looking like David and I have been having some major disagreements, I'm doing fine. I hope you are, too. Love you.
