Hey, How’ve You Been? July 12, 2012Posted by Toy Lady in just general griping, mirth & woe, random stuff.
Is it just me, or does this seem like an exceptionally busy summer?
No, I don’t suppose it’s just me, is it?
Work is starting to slow down a bit for me – though now is the time I play clean-up – those files I’ve been working on for the past several months all need to be closed and billed. And that is a LOT of work! Though it will be nice to see the conference room table again. . .
We’ve got an appointment with a contractor this week – we’re going to see what it’ll take to install a second bathroom, or, rather, a powder room, downstairs. Apparently, we’ve been living like barbarians all these years, all of us sharing the same bathroom!
I suddenly came down with some nasty bug – I’m not sure how, since I very seldom actually see people. Well, not many people, anyway – there’s my immediate family and the two people I work with. Not really much in the way of germs there. But MAN was I sick! I came home Tuesday feeling kind of cruddy – you know the feeling – no energy, not really hungry, sort of headachy, low-grade fever, just generally cruddy. Woke up Wednesday morning cold, sweaty, and with a massively sore throat, plus a cough that made my chest burn.
I emailed in (so much better than calling in – you don’t have to actually sound ill), looked for Nyquil, found none, so I settled for Robitussin, and went back to bed around 6, to wake up about 9:30, still feeling lousy but not as bad.
Oh, and then Peeps called to let me know he’d be late getting home from work – it seems that his clutch went.
A clutch is a major event in the car-repair world, involving lots of labor and an overnight loaner car.
Fun week, eh?
So what have you been up to so far this summer?
