It’s March 3rd and we have about 3 inches of snow on the ground and it’s still falling. Ehhh, hello? Spring??
Louise tried to get to work twice this morning, and on her second attempt it took her an hour to get all of 8 miles so she turned round and came back home. I’m still not 100% so decided to stay at home the next couple of days, which is just as well as I wouldn’t have gotten to work this morning anyway!
I’m slowly recovering but still very lethargic with small bursts of energy leaving me completely drained. Writing this blog post, for example, will equal about a 20 minute doze on the couch later. Still it’s good to be able to do something, even if it’s very little and I’m hoping to be back to work later this week.
The timing of this is, of course, perfect. Perfectly awful that is… we are getting our new kitchen installed on Thursday this week and there is painting, plastering to be done, the removal of the cooker and dishwasher, the lifting of the floor… not to mention a myriad of other small jobs that we wanted done before the fitters arrived.
At this point I’ll thank my sister-in-law, my youngest nephew and my brother-in-law for coming over last weekend to help out. Claire and Mark removed all the tiles from the kitchen, and Paul helped remove some cabinets, all whilst I lay in bed trying to stay awake. What a great family. My parents will be helping once the kitchen is fitted as well, so at least Louise isn’t having to do everything.
I feel completely useless of course, and have made small attempts at helping, a little Polyfilla here, moving some things there, not much but at least I’m doing something!
That said, thanks for the well wishes. I am getting better, I slept all the way through last night without coughing once! (small victories and all that). I’ve another 4 weeks or so of antibiotics to get through but at least I am feeling a little better.
What about you? How are you? What have I missed??
