Catching up and What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!! Mine was good, despite being sick. I promise to upload pictures of my Christmas adventures soon. I keep forgetting to bring my memory card with me. 

I got sick last Wednesday evening with a sore throat. I spent a few days drinking TheraFlu and that seemed to help my throat some, but starting Sunday afternoon (yes, on Christmas), it got worse. My sore throat was so bad Monday morning that I had to leave my parents house a little earlier than I had planned so I could get back to Dallas to find a doctor who was actually open. My doctor's office was closed, so I had to go to a Care Now clinic. Nothing against Care Now, they are a respectable place, it's just that my insurance has a higher co-pay there. :/ BUT, one of the good things about them is that if there is a long wait, they will take your number and you can go home and they will call you when they are ready to see you. I'm glad they did. I went to the office to sign in about 1:45 and didn't get a call until after 4:00 to come back. At least I was able to wait at home and not in a stuffy waiting room.

The verdict was that I probably had a cold last week and it turned into a sinus infection. I had to get a steroid shot (as I've mentioned before, I'm not a fan of needles, so that was no fun) and I am also on antibiotics and cough medicine. I still don't feel great (in fact, today is a little worse than yesterday), but alas, I'm making do. I'm even at work. I figured I would be miserable if I stayed home, might as well be miserable at work and get paid for it. :) Thankfully it's a slow week here at my office (a lot of people are out). I may or may not have Sudoku puzzles at my desk to keep me entertained. 

Okay, enough of my health problems. Let's move on to What I'm Loving Wednesday!! :)

I'm loving...

That it's already Wednesday. Having Monday off work means this is a short week (and I also have next Monday off work, so it will be two short weeks in a row!) **happy dance**

I'm loving...

That pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in 52 days. Oh yes, I'm already ready for baseball season (when am I NOT?)! If you look at my side bar, you will notice I added a widget with a countdown (just because I know you are all excited like me!) ;)

I'm loving...

That my nephew Danny is coming to visit me for New Year's. We are going to a Stars game on New Year's Eve with some of my friends. Danny is actually the one who got me interested in hockey way back when. For those who need a cheat sheet for my huge family, Danny is my nephew who is three years younger than me.

I'm loving...

Ricola cough drops. They don't leave that "medicine flavor" taste in your mouth like other brands. Since I'm battling a cough (and it seems my sore throat has returned YET again), I've been popping these bad boys today.

I'm loving...

These Audrey Hepburn items I found on while I've been here bored out of my mind busy at work. Yes, they have been added to my wishlist. If anyone feels the need to buy me a present, here are some ideas! ;) hehehe...

Hope everyone is having a good week!!



  1. Being sick (especially on holidays) is no fun. Hope you are better in time to party for NYE!!

    And YAY to countdown for baseball! Are you coming to Fenway in 2012!?

  2. Sad you're not feeling any better! Maybe you need another shot! ;)

  3. Sucks that you're sick, I hope you get to feeling better ASAP!

    Ricola IS the best!
