What's Goin' On

A bit of an update...

I'm doing much better. Thank you all so much for your caring and concern. Those five days of being sick took a lot out of me but I went to work yesterday and today and felt a bit tired but otherwise all better. I'm trying to take it easy all week, eat right and get lots of rest before Saturday. I'm going to Boston and staying overnight in the SG2's dorm room. Her roommate will be away for the weekend, so it works well.

I'm looking forward to spending time with my girl. I'm hoping for both good health and good weather. We like to walk and talk when we're together. We have a lot to catch up on.

Tonight I'm going to try to get to a few blogs. I'm behind on my blog reading, the photo memes, email and news. In Friday's NY Times, I read about the 17,000 troops to Afghanistan, which didn't surprise me and yet news like that never ceases to break my heart.

Otherwise, I know that the stockmarket continues to plunge, Gitmo is not going to close down as quickly as we'd hoped and that Republicans are arseholes, but that's not news, is it?

I'm planning to eat Indian leftovers, do a couple of loads of laundry, watch President Obama's address to the Congress and call it a night.

And this is a photo of my amaryllis, which has been blooming deliciously.

  1. Glad you're feeling better. I've been sick the last couple of days too.

    Enjoy your time with your daughter! I used to love it when I could visit Pitt and stay in the International Dorm with Kitty. Loved the time with her, and the casual drop-ins from other young people. I know you'll have a wonderful time.

  2. I've been battleing asthma and it does wear you down, so I do empathize with you.

    Like Bobbie, I'm so glad you're going to get to have some time with your daughter! That always helps everything! Enjoy and have a wonderful time, which I know you will!

  3. I do hope you keep on getting better so you can have a lovely weekend with your darling daughter! I am sure you will now that you are on the mend...

    and this flower....YUUUUUMMEEEEEE (and a tad erotic too or maybe that's just me... !!?)

  4. I am so glad you're feeling better and will keep a good thought for this weekend's travels.

    That amaryllis picture is fabulous!

  5. What a beautiful photograph! (and no, Linda, it's not "just you." ;) )

    I'm hoping for dinner with SG2 on my way through Thursday PM, which is a cool coincidence! Though I'm jealous 'cause you get to spend the night and I'm just passin' through. :)

  6. hope you return to normal style. thank god you got better.
