Kibbles and Bits

Ahhh, spring. Still feels a few weeks away.

****

For the last few weeks—since AWP DC—I've had a persistent cough. A deep, chesty, uncontrollable wet cough that sounds like I’m coughing up a lung (sounds much worse than it is). I rarely get sick, and when I do I fight illness off fairly quickly. But this cough has been a drag.

Well, I am finally getting over my cold/bronchitis/walking pneumonia/whooping cough. After a visit to my doctor, who gave me antibiotics, an anti-inflammatory, and chest X-ray, I checked out OK and should feel better soon.

Last night, I crashed at 8:30 p.m. and got a full eight hours of sleep. I feel better than I have in weeks. Probably should have done that in the first place.

It’s a hard lesson to learn that as sole support of the family, staying healthy and balanced has to be my #1 priority.

This weekend, lots of play dates and house projects planned. And the kids want to see the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie.

I've been up to 2 a.m. every night for the last two weeks and then getting up at 8 a.m. to be at work by 9. This weekend, I'm sleeping until noon. Feel better!

Thanks Collin! I'm on the mend.

Have you been working on revisions? Get some rest this weekend. :)
