I got several people calling in to wish me well, which is always nice. I got a couple of birthday cards, one from my mother and one from my father-in-law. Each had checks in 'em, for equivalent amounts, and if I had 9 more I could make my car payment... ;) Karen's mother gave me some chocolate, and I got Karen some tangerine Jelly Bellies...not knowing that Karen's mom had already covered that contingency. Karen is getting us a new printer (actually a printer/scanner/fax combo, which is important as our old printer died) and also gave me season three of Buffy. Buffy is my new current obsession, in case you weren't aware.
I've been feeling not quite right for a week or so. Some parts of days are okay, but not enough of 'em. My stomach's been upset, and there's a vicious cycle (stomach upset, taking drugs to feel better, becoming drowsy, drinking caffeine to wake up, stomach becoming upset, lather, rinse, repeat) that I can't seem to get out of. I've spent all week in the IV Lab at work (a good thing) so I've been less stressed than I could be. For example, right now I'm caught up at work, so I can relax a little bit.
Since I haven't been feeling well, the housework is falling behind. I have tomorrow morning off, but between catching up on my sleep, taking my car in for repairs and trying to see my doctor, I don't know how much time I'll have for it. I feel bad about it, but it's not like my week so far has been filled with time where I've been healthy and not busy.
There will be more later. My thoughts are sort of scattered, for the abovementioned reasons. Happy 2/5, everyone. :)
