Sick, Sick, Sick

OK, First my Sheila gets a bad case of the flu, and now I got this terrible case of bronchitis. Maybe the germs in this house will turn on each other and kill each other instead of attacking all the people in this house. Thank God I didn't have to work this weekend because when I looked out the window this morning and saw all that ice everywhere, I thought to myself. . . I ain't doing nothin' all day today!!! And I've been true to my word. This is the first thing I've done all day besides sit in a lazyboy chair with the remote control in hand. I haven't been sleeping well because if I lay down, all that congestion gets caught up in my lungs and I start hacking away. My ribs and my back are hurting really bad, probably from all that coughing. Unfortunately, it's back to work for me tomorrow. Wish me luck getting through the day. Hope everyone out there is doing well, or at least, better than I am.

Let it snow!!!

Thank God I have tomorrow off of work!!! All this snow is coming down, the winds are blowing and it's not fit for man nor beast to be outside. I am so glad that I don't have to worry about driving in it tomorrow morning. They say we will have about 6 to 8 inches of the white stuff before morning. I've already been out to shovel twice, and it's still coming down hard. I can't wait until spring arrives. I'm sick and tired of the cold weather. And poor Taco!!! By morning the snow will be higher than he is tall. The poor puppy gives me those sad puppydog eyes everytime I take him out to go to the bathroom. He looks to me as if to say what did I ever do to you to deserve this kind of treatment?

Well, I made a big mistake! At work, we have to request time off before the 10th of the previous month and get it approved. Well, since I have so many hours of cto time and because my work is selling ownership of the assisted living place that I work at, I thought I better start using some of that off time before they switch owners and I possibly lose the time off. Go figure, I would chose this week. It's so cold out that you can't stay out for very long without getting frostbite. Do I know how to pick vacation time or what? Anyway, I decided to make the best of my time off. I'm going to get alot of stuff done around the house that I've been putting off. I'm going to read alot, work on my scrapbook, and spend some of the time just lounging in my lazyboy recliner and watching TV. Not a great way to spend vacation time, but I really needed the break from work. Things have been so hectic lately, I really needed some time away. And now with the added stress of . . . Who's going to buy us out? Are they going to keep the work staff? Will I have to look for another job? How much are things going to change here? What kind of benefits will they offer? Will the benefits be as good as what we have now? . . . I really need some relaxation time. I think everything will work out fine, but the fear of the unknown scares me a little bit.
