News from the Infirmary

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
The cabin has been one house of illness lately. A nasty cold has been spreading through the entire community like wildfire, so when Andy came home with the sniffles a week and a half ago, I knew it was only a matter of time before the cabin had taken on a decided "infirmary" feel. Sure enough, Andy's been out with a nasty, yucky sinus cold for going on 11 days now and I've been sniffling (and sneezing) my way through the past six days. It's a doozy, this cold, and we're hardly its only victims.

So there's no real news to report from this neck of the woods, no big outdoor adventures to relate from the last two batches of days off.

But here are some fun stats from the House of Illness!

Work days missed = 0
Boxes of Nyquil depleted = .5
Kleenex Boxes used  = 2 and counting 
Chicken soup consumed = 1 batch
Boxes of tea depleted = 2

In other news, winter's decided to go prove something and be all wintery again. Actually, we're meant to be getting the blizzards of all blizzards right now, but so far, not even a snowflake. Guess it all tracked south. Bummer . . . .  For the time being, I'll just enjoy the fresh 5" that came down on Sunday.

Honestly, it can be spring any day now. ANY DAY. *sigh*

In a moment of feverish inspiration (somewhat aided by a feeling of broke-ity, broke, broke-ness), I sent out a batch of queries on Saturday and within 48 hours I'd  been rewarded for my efforts by not one, but two paying gigs out of the deal. I know, right! I'm excited, but a little stressed out by it all. I'm hoping this cold lets up soon, because phone interviews + being all stuffed up = ridiculousness.

I think I'll spend the rest of my evening once I've finished this super interesting and informative post getting my mileage chart for 2011 all done. I've been putting off making the chart for a good two months now, but I think it would be spiffy to file my taxes in the near future so the chart must be done.

Anyone do anything exciting for Leap Year? I spent my extra day doing laundry, grocery shopping, and finally watching The Help (good, but the book is much better). So yeah, I spent my extra day exactly like any other day. Lame.

And that's the news from the infirmary. I hope everyone else is managing to keep the sniffles at bay!
