So far, 2012 is not treating me very well. I've been sick for 6 days; coughing, snorting, dripping and now - wheezing. Someone told me today that the bug I have is going around and some people are having it turn serious, if they don't take care early on. Hmmmmm. I worked 2 days while I was sick, but I'm taking it easy now - so I hope that is going to work to keep it from becoming a problem for my doctor.
It doesn't help a bit that old man winter has finally shown up around here. Temps are in the low 30's today and the overnight low is predicted to be in the teens. I went out to get the mail a while ago and remembered to disconnect the hoses and let the faucets drip. The last thing we need is frozen pipes. Doing that, plus rolling out the garbage and recycling bins tired me out, so I took a short nap, or tried. I got hooked on a program about surveillance in the 21st century, and then another one on J. Edgar Hoover (a powerful, but very repellent man.)
Somehow our den television cable has gotten stuck on 70 (Nat Geo). I love that channel, but I don't want to watch it 24/7. I suppose I will have to go to the cable office and get a new remote. Adding that to all the other errands I need to run tomorrow (that I've put off while I've been sick) and I might get back home before dinner. That's no way to recuperate, is it? When am I ever going to be able to put my Christmas decorations away?
