Borrowed from Kwizgiver.

I am...

Reading:  How to ThinkLike a Cat, by Stephane Garnier.  My mom got it for me for my recent birthday.  It isn’t what I expected at all, but I’ll keep at it to the end (it’s a very slim volume).

Listening to: Law and Order re-runs.  I’ve got a horrid cold, and am coughing my head off on the couch today, rather than infecting my officemates.

Loving:  my Christmas tree.  It always makes me happy when it’s up.

Thinking: about how crappy I feel, and how many times I’ve been sick this year.  Got the flu in March (yes, I had a flu shot) while home when my Dad passed away, got a cold in June when I went home, got a cold a month ago when I went home, and now THIS cold.  That’s two colds in one month.  Sheesh.  Last year, I wasn’t sick once.  I think all the stress of this year, coupled with the multiple airplane trips to South Carolina, has fried my immune system.  Need to do something about that….

Feeling: grateful to our PRN (as-needed) RN.  Called her last night and asked her to work for me, and she was happy to—now I don’t have to worry about a pile of work when I get back. 

Celebrating:  managing to get the Christmas tree up, even feeling like crap.  Took me all day, but I got it done. 

Grateful for:  my husband, who made me a wonderful turkey soup last night, because that’s all I wanted—soup.

Weather:   classic New Mexico winter day.  46 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, 42% humidity.  Still have Thanksgiving snow hiding in the shade, but otherwise, gone, just like that.

Enjoying:  Being home alone.  That hardly ever happens.  Hubs is off having a “mad-venture” with Maddie the dog.  They are going to the dog park, the mall (our mall allows dogs), somewhere with a “petio” for lunch, and who knows what else.  Maddie will enjoy the HELL out of all of that—she loves saying hi to everyone.

A quote I want to share:   “keep it in the middle of the road” –my Dad


  1. I hope your cold is over soon. And I love your blog layout!

  2. Loved this post! I am sorry you are sick. Stress and airplanes are not a good coupling. So good to be back to seeing what my friends are up to!


I hate the whole moderating thing, so I'm going to try Captcha instead. We'll see. Let me know if you hate it.
