I haven't finished uploading and editing my photos from our recent trip. I've actually been on the computer for very little that is not work-related since we returned.
Between being busy getting back into the routine at work, a day of travel for work (and one for my volunteer work) last week, and the nasty cold I picked up on our trip, I haven't been doing much.
I spent the majority of Sunday and Monday in bed or on the couch; the most strenuous thing I did was walk from one room to the next. I woke up last Wednesday with a scratchy throat and sniffles which by Thursday had progressed to full-on head congestion with headache and popping ears. Saturday while I was in Tucson visiting M, I felt worse and worse as the day progressed: same congestion, etc., but also felt very tired and had developed a cough coming from my chest.
I am back to about 85% of normal today: still a little congested and coughing occasionally, but my energy level is back to about normal, and most of my sinus pressure has subsided. I'm back at work, too. I'm just glad that I didn't get the H1N1 flu: I checked my temperature every four hours or so the past two days, and I never got over 98.6.
Someday soon I will share our vacation photos. (I haven't even posted them for my family to see yet!)
We were supposed to have gone out to dinner Saturday night to celebrate MM's birthday. (His actual birthday is tomorrow.) Our dinner was canceled because his dad has shingles and is in a lot of pain. I will take him out to dinner tomorrow night on our own, and we have rescheduled the family dinner for next weekend. I have to admit that I was glad dinner got moved because I felt pretty crappy myself on Saturday.
Oh, one last thing: I want to say that today is my father and stepmother's 20th wedding anniversary. Neither of them reads this blog--they don't even know I write it--but I think that twenty years of marriage is quite an accomplishment these days!
