January Slipped Right Past Me
What a month! I went back to work after Christmas break on January 3, and got sick with a dreadful cold on January 4. Daddy had a cold when I went down to visit him and Mom and New Year's Day, so I guess I caught it from him. Mom got sick the day after I did, and we all battled it for the next couple of weeks or so.
I felt pretty bad, but wasn't nearly as sick and Mom and Dad had been with it. I managed to keep it out of my chest, thank goodness, but they both had terrible coughs for an awful long time. I really think Mom might have had pneumonia, but she never did go to the doctor. She really should have, though.
Seems that everyone has had either that really bad cold/bronchitis/pneumonia thing or a stomach virus/flu/generally cruddy thing. I've actually tried to stay out of public places as much as I can, but you can only avoid people so long!
I've been over the cold for some time now, but my energy level still isn't up to par. I come home from work, eat supper, and drop! (One reason my posting has fallen so far behind!)
The good news is that my new assistant at work is a gem. She's bright, quick, and has a natural talent for numbers. I'm grateful that in addition to being good at her work she's also a nice person. I hope she's as happy in the job as I am happy to have her there!
We've had a couple of light snows in January. One was enough to close the college at 11:00 a.m. one fine Tuesday, but we're all hoping for a full Snow Day. It looks like some wintry weather is headed our way tomorrow night, so we're keeping our fingers crossed! :-)
Well, "House" is waiting for me on TiVo, so I think I'll curl up under the covers with MeggieDog and the remote and watch grumpy ol' Greg rip someone up.
