Wow, first real snowfall of the year (just one day too late!) and it looks pretty huge. Glad to be nice and warm indoors with some cocoa by my side. It's REALLY coming down.
Weather.com reports it to be a blizzard, and that we should be getting around 5-8 inches today. Man! Hope it won't be too much of a hardship getting into the office tomorrow.
I was supposed to work this past Friday (Christmas Eve), but came down with a fever the night before that I'm still currently recovering from, so I had to call out. Since then, I've been basically living in my bed this entire time, minus the occasional bathroom/water break. Up until last night, I had very little appetite and had a banana sustain me for almost 2 days. Fever as of Friday night was 103F, Saturday (Christmas!) 99.8F, and now it's pretty normal again. Still have a crazy cough and shortage of breath though.
a) it happening on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day and ruining my holiday by banishing me to my bed the entire time & seeing very few people (had to cancel on a Christmas Eve get-together with some family, which we had worked SO HARD to arrange and schedule, grr)
b) it's been literally YEARS since I've last been sick, and I had almost started to believe that I was invincible. I can't remember the last time I've been sick prior to now, actually. I think it's been at least 4-6 years.
But, in any case, school's done for the time being-- until the end of January-- so I have a bit of down time to catch up on things I've been putting off and to start on new(ish) projects. So yeah- I know sometimes quite a bit of time goes by between updates on this blog, but I'll make a post before the end of the year with a wrap up of what I'm thinking about for the new year.
And I finally opened my secret santa gift! I got:
A copy of Tall Tales by Al Jaffee, Introduction written by Stephen Colbert.
A new ladybug catnip dispenser toy, haha. My cats LOVE catnip.
