I want a reset button for this week. This week sort of, no really, fell apart for me somewhere around Tuesday night. I went to bed with my sinuses screaming at me and the beginnings of a sore throat. I woke up around 1:00 AM, took a Mucinex D, and then rode out the crazy train of decongestant induced shakes, sweats for the rest of the night. When morning finally showed up, I knew that I would not be shaking this thing on my own. A doctor's visit later and now I'm riding a new crazy train called Avelox. That's a fancy new antibiotic. A fancy new antibiotic that makes me slow. It's taken me an hour to write this paragraph. Don't even get me started on NaNoWriMo. The cold weather came rushing in overnight. We moved from crisp Fall temperatures to OHMYGOD freezing literally overnight. That's probably what triggered this sinus infection. It's also triggered small furry animals to seek out a warm place to hang out. I went to get some tylenol from the linen closet last night and there was a little mouse "sleeping" in front of the closet.
me:"There's a mouse!" Michael: "What?" me: "There's a mouse!" Michael: "There's a mouse?" me: "There's a mouse!" Michael (after finally coming to see what I was talking about): "There's a mouse!"
After Michael disposed of the mouse, he said to me "now, I don't want you to worry about mice coming into the house." Sometimes I'm really surprised by how much he seems to know me.
I'm going to make soup now.
