(239) Feeling much better! Yay!

Until I looked out the window this morning! Holy Cow! More friggin snow!!!

I hope my sprouting Iris's don't freeze to death!

Food is good, but weight is holding steady. Water is ok. Activity is too low. Trying to stay motivated and focused. Still hacking a bit, although I am feeling substantially better than last week. Hope this last round of stuff from the doc does the job, with no relapses.

Swamped at work, as always.

Have a great day!

(236) Finally Some Relief...

Back to the doc again yesterday...this time for some more effective cough syrup and a steroid bomb to kick this thing in the butt.

The syrup makes me loopy, but really does the job on stopping the endless hacking.

The steroid made me want to **leap** out of bed this morning. I take that as a agood sign.

Meanwhile, the weather looks good and I am hoping to be outside sometime this weekend...if the rain holds off. I'd like to get a walk or two in, as long as the coughing is under control. I need some fresh air!

Hope you all have a nice weekend

(234) Getting better?!? Doesn't seem like it...

Last week, the office bug finally caught up with me, and I did a pretty good job, keeping it short. Went to the doc for an antibiotic last monday, and by friday, I was feeling a lot better.

Until yesterday.

Seems to be coming back with a vengeance.

Started sneezing like crazy around lunchtime, and for the rest of the evening, it was a bloody faucet. It almost seems like allergies, since it all seems to be the running nose, sneezing, itchy throat business.

Pain in the butt.

Took a Zertec this morning. Hope it works soon...

That's all I got.

(233) Water Line-Up

Good morning, good morning.

Got my second bottle of water lined up. Finishing the first. More to follow.

Getting my act back together now.

Shaking off the last bits of whatever virus it was that finally managed to nab me. Everyone at work has been passing something around for the last 4-5 months. I've been lucky.

Or maybe its that I've gotten healthier over the last 4-6 months.

In any event, I've had a shorter recovery than usual, so I'm glad for that.

Busy as hell at work, so back to it.

Have a good day, all.

(232) Reviving Myself

Well, I sure have been away for awhile.

So, what's been happening?

Spent most of last week being sick....missed a few days of work, in bed and unconscious, which we all know what that means...huge piles upon returning.

Meanwhile, on the homefront. My aunt was just diagnosed with dementia and had spent the better part of two weeks hospitalized for testing/observation, and all that crap. Other medical issues included. She's 80.

My mom is frazzled, and her other sister is in a tailspin.

Kids....well....that's a whole 'nother story....

Trying desparately to keep my focus and my motivation.

I have fallen off on the water, and it seems that I have hit a wall/standstill with the weight loss.

As Allen has hammered into us all along...DRINK THE EFFING WATER!!!!

So I went and got more bottled water this weekend, and am getting my act together.

(hangs head in shame...)

I've only got a moment to type this update, as my phone is ringing off the hook, and my work email inbox blew up last tuesday, and I'm still sorting through the rubble.

Best wishes to all of you, and I hope you are all doing well with the losses. I'm pulling myself together...slowly.
