Sick :(

April 8th, 2013 at 11:11 pm

It's been a long time since my last post. No good reason, just excuses and plenty of them. Working back from today...

I've been sick, sick, sick since last Thursday with what turned out to be some sort of bronchitis. I finally broke down today and went to the emergimed. The doctor was in and out in literally one minute (nurse spent about 5) and out I walked with prescriptions for nasal spray, cough medecine, and antibiotics. I have to take the antibiotic with dinner, in about an hour, so hopefully will feel relief after that. In the meantime, I've been MISERABLE.

Prior to getting sick, I was working like a dog, making up for some time off when my brother was here. Does work ever slow down before you retire? I don't think so. Always trying to do more with less and stretch, stretch, stretch. Nobody wants to be the one that says "enough". (Including me; I appreciate my job)!

Prior to that we had a great visit with my brother's family, but I got nothing done while they were here. So worth it to see them!

On the financial front, we got the taxes back (don't ask). A bit better than we thought, but still a tough hit when you factor the estimated tax that's also due on 4/15 and the accountant bill. I'm hoping next year we'll be in better shape, as I've adjusted my withholding and estimated tax has increased. I'm just relieved it's behind me.

I need to work on the April budget, which I've completely ignored. Probably not tonight, but perhaps over the next few days when my meds kick in.

    Sure hope you feel better soon...generally within 24 hours antibiotics make a big difference. You'll be a new woman in the morning!!

    I hope you feel better soon! Generic Vicks helped me *a lot* through the worst of my bronchitis.
