I'm finally coming out of a sick fog. I have been fighting what turned out to be bronchitis and a sinus infection for about a week or longer. I finally broke down and went to the doctor on Monday. I was so sick and so miserable, that I expected the doctor to say, "your suspicion was right. You are dying. You are so brave for waiting so long to come see me. It's a miracle you were able to drive yourself here. We'll have to check you into the hospital and get you the best care available until you can get back on your feet again."
Then the next week or two would look like this:
But all she said was, "stay home from work at least one more day and take these antibiotics."
There was no mention of how brave I am at all.
And now here I am, a couple days later, back at work. Wishing I was in the bed pictured above. Wishing I had the luxury of staying in bed a few more days but since I am just well enough to be back to the grind, I'm back to the grind.
But aren't antibiotics a wonderful thing? I'm so grateful for them. I'm done whining now.
Here are some other thoughts for this Wednesday:
* I ordered the movie Son in Law over the weekend. Remember that movie? I think it won like ten Oscars and it stars Pauly Shore. It got 22% on Rotten Tomatoes. I bought it for $6. I haven't seen it in forever, but I remember it being worth $6. Not $7 though. Just $6. I'll let you know after I watch it if it stands the test of time.
* While I was in bed with the plague, it snowed. I missed it. I looked at it out my window once though and it was really pretty. This morning I walked out the door and saw a dusting of it still left on my pumpkin. And the grass was frozen and crunchy and my car was covered with frost. Thick frost. I guess it's time to start rushing out to my car while I'm getting ready and warming it up so I don't have to scrape my windows.
* I'm getting super excited for Thanksgiving. Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving recipe? I'm trying to find one that will really wow everyone.
Guys, that's really all I have today. Those are my Wednesday Thoughts. I hope they are acceptable to you.
