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
