Finally Feeling Healthy

Finally I feel a lot better. Looking back on it, I probably shouldn't have gone to work on Thursday. I came in for a half day on Friday but I couldn't last any longer than that so I left and went to the doctor. My husband also went to the doctor, so we had double walk-in appointments at the same time at this ambulatory care center that I went to for my arm one of the first weeks I was in town. The doctors gave us antibiotics for our secondary infections and sent us on our way. We had our prescriptions filled at Kroger while we stocked up on chicken soup, sparkling water, and juice. Then we went home and sat around trying to recover from our excursion.

On Saturday I felt much better, like I was finally on the mend, but we didn't do much of anything that day because I didn't want to push myself. That meant skipping out on our weekly role-playing game, which was unfortunate but had to be done. On Sunday I felt even better and I was able to do a few chores around the house without getting too exhausted.

The big problem has been that the weather has been absolutely gorgeous for the past week, and I've been too sick to go outside and enjoy it! Now, just as I'm getting well, it's supposed to storm and cool off again. That kind of sucks.

Springtime is definitely here, however. We've had daffodils in bloom for a couple of weeks here. I've noticed that they are pervasive: we have a big patch of them in our front lawn, I see them by the side of the road all the time, and they seem to grow like weeds. The flowering pears are out too, and I may have seen a redbud or two but I'm not sure. One thing I've noticed is the striking absence of tulips. I have yet to see a single tulip, in my yard, my neighbors' yards, or anywhere. So I don't know what to make of that.

being sick while there's nice weather sucks... even worse than that tho is being sick while the weather is still below freezing, windy, and snowy. Like I am at the moment...

I think tulips can be a bit later than daffodils. Are there at least tulip leaves coming out of the ground? That's probably the thing to look for this time of year...
