Still sick. Getting better, but still sick. Getting my flu shot (mist) on top of a horrible cold was not, rpt, not the best thing, but I'll survive. My sinuses have decided that they're not making up their mind as to whether they'll be filled with goo or not, and so, I go through intermittent headachey periods where I'm *sure* my head will explode, but it never does.
Somehow, that's vaguely disappointing. ;-)
Erm. Starting with Monday, since that was the start of my workweek!
Monday- Work. Work was. Work is. Work will be, thank God. In days when I know a lot of folx who are in danger of losing their job, I am profoundly grateful for mine.
Also, beginner fighter practice. Although I did not fully armor up (see preceding note about sinuses and feeling like the south end of a north-bound mule) I did get to swing a stick a bit, and I haven't lost quite as much as I fear. I'm still struggling to clean up and actually land my offside shots correctly, but that will come in time.
Because I was not armored up, I was somewhat exempt from the Circle of Death, and while I did not fight, I did get a chance to put stick on armored fighters. Basically, unarmored fighters get five swings at the armored fighters (and no, the up-armored guys do NOT get to swing back, Ioannes!).
I managed to land two good shots in my matches, and killed Ioannes (John) but I think I also killed Abel. Well, I got to whack upon Ioannes' legs, but that's because he reminded me in the middle of it to quit throwing the same damn shot and...oh...go low. You know, where there was no armor!
Go me! That was awesome.
Tuesday- We attempted to get a Christmas tree. It did not happen because of the weather. So, we returned the house, sans tree.
Wednesday- I met with cenliamgordon at the local Home Depot and we picked up a lovely noble fir. Sadly, because of a soldier being a jackass, John could not join us for the ritual holding of the tree, but he is pleased with the tree we picked, and he helped put it in the uber-stand. (Between the two of us, it's still crooked. Oh well.)
Liam's munchkins got to hang the first ornaments on it, because we didn't get it early enought to decorate it while they were at out house. :-( But they enjoyed hanging their ornament on it, and they'll be excited when they come back next week.
Today- I got up, the dog grumped at me for waking her up and then got up and went to sleep with Liam. She's a total cuddle-bug in the morning, and will cheerfully leave our bed to go find another warm body to snuggle with. I grabbed a cuppa, put on my face and headed out. Traffic was light, and so...I made it in to work.
Now, I have to work on a PP briefing on dealing with media for this weekend's annual briefing spree. Yay.
Just over a week and a half until my birfday!
