Ice Storms February 3, 2011

We had freezing From Monday through Wednesday morning. I chipped my car out of the ice twice, went out both Monday and Tuesday nights, and yet, it was Wednesday night when I slipped and fell on the ice, when it had a nice coating of snow on top of it. I am so talented. I am alright, though, hip is a little tender, but not bad at all, considering I was carrying a large box at the time. The storms did not take our power or even our internet, though some of the trees are worse for the wear. We were lucky this week.

I’m still coughing, one week into ten days of antibiotics, and it’s still clinging to my lungs. Other than that, and cranky shoulders, I’m doing pretty well, health wise. It seems to be the time of surgery for my friends, several wisdom teeth and a shoulder, so good and healing thoughts to all of them.

I finally got back to Elance, applying to five jobs on Monday. No response yet, but most of them had another week of open applications. Spent some time looking at openings in town, but most of the ones I found listed were for managerial positions and required teaching experience, degrees in subjects I don’t have or experience I don’t have. I haven’t given up on the store yet, but some days, I think a better paycheck would be nice. Other days I think the internet is the way to go, if only I could get a brilliant idea that a few thousand people would pay for on a monthly basis. Some day maybe, eh? It’s good to have dreams.

Feeling Better January 27, 2011

I missed last week because of the Con Crud.  The con itself was an amazingly good time. Friends and fun and food. We all hung out and relaxed and partied. But the following week, we ALL got sick. And I do mean all. I don’t know who brought the flu to the con, but pretty much everyone I know that attended, with a couple rare exceptions, ended up sick during the following week.

I had a fever ranging up to 102.8, headache, nasty cough, runny nose and all. I have gotten rid of most of that, except the cough. It is persisting, so I went to the doctor today to get antibiotics to kick it the rest of the way out. Normally I wouldn’t but normally, I’d also let it hang around for a month. Thought I’d like to get rid of it faster this time.

Read a couple books while I was sick. Now on the third book of the Ultimate Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy. It might have amused me a little too much to begin reading it on a nook, but I am a geek. Watched the BBC miniseries of it last week, as well. Very amusing.

Work is odd. Must get back in gear on Elance again. Healthy first, then back to the grindstone. To live the life I want, effort must be made.
