Back to normal

We got some propane today and things are back to normal. At least I know I can cook without it running out on me. Paying the bill on the other hand, is ridiculous! 200 gallons for $384! Ugh...makes me sick.

Still feeling quite congested in the sinus area. Our Daisy Girl Scout meeting this afternoon is practicing for Bridging and then visiting the doctor's office for a tour, so I'm going to talk to my doc about the way I'm still feeling and see if I should come back on Friday to see her.

Dinner tonight is at El Azteco in East Lansing for our last service unit meeting for Girl Scouts. Should be enjoyable.

Memorial Day

Hope everyone is enjoying this day of rememberance. It's beautiful here. 90 degrees at 5:30! I got up a bit ago. Made it through night #1 of my 5 midnights. It was a bit crazy at work when I first got there at 7pm yesterday. This heat reaks havoc on electrical equipment at times. Anyhow, only 8 hr shifts the rest of the week!

Feeling some better, just coughing still. And blowing my nose. Just going to take it easy til I have to go to work.

Our propane is about to run out and I didn't want to call on the weekend or Holiday so we are trying to get by until tomorrow morning when I can call. Might have a slightly cold shower tonight though. No cooking on the stove or oven. We'll figure it out. lol

Sinus Infection, Bronchitis & Laryngitis

That is what working double shifts after sitting out in the cold & wind watching a baseball game for 5 hrs will do to you. Heed the warning - don't do it! lol

My boss sent me home yesterday morning telling me to get some rest. I had double shifts scheduled all week and it sort of upset me that he was sending me home because I didn't want to make our already short staff, even shorter. But he didn't care. I barely could talk as it was and everyone I did talk to told me I should be home. So I got myself a doc appt and that (in the title) is what she told me I had. I was prescribed Zithromax TriPack, Mucinex & allergy meds. Told to get rest, be quiet and drink warm tea w/honey & lemon.

Today I have my voice back somewhat and am feeling some better, but the allergy med I got should have been decongestant too and I didn't get the right one. Don't have the extra cash right now to go get it. So I'll get through it. Just layed out in the sun for an hour hoping to get some of it dried out of my head. Oh...and work on a tan too. :) I will veg as best I can since the girls are here. Working all those hours and then starting midnight shift this week just leads to a neglected house, so I'm trying to work on cleaning up little by little.

Also have to get ready for our very last Daisy meeting this Wednesday. I have to get the girls banners completed and get their binders together too. So, lots to do in the next couple days. The next time our Daisies meet after this Wednesday is Bridging. Very exciting!

So....who still stops by??

PS - down 36.5 lbs now!! Weight Watchers is awesome!
