Emily's home! Yay! We plan to attend various Christmas/birthday events, cuddle a lot, run around a little, and watch a lot of Doctor Who and Torchwood (thanks, Jamie!)

Sadly, I haven't been a very good host so far. The weekend before I left to pick her up I came down with a horrible head cold. I hid from her just how sick I was and didn't mention it much on LJ, because I didn't want her to worry that I wouldn't be able to take the trip; then I spent the weekend cleaning house when I probably should have been in bed, resting.

My theory was that, with a healthy dose of vitamins and fluids, I'd be all better by the time I took off to drive 18 hours in two days. Instead, it's settled into my sinuses and, to a lesser extent, my lungs, and I feel like death warmed over. (What does that feel like, really?) All I want to do is lay down and moan, and not in a good way. It's one of those things where I don't feel like I'm seriously ill, just full of those annoying minor illness symptoms that make a person frustrated and exhausted. (Could I possibly use any more Kleenex?) I just can't imagine I'm all that much fun to live with.

But everybody is sick right now, it seems, and lots of them sicker than me. A few more days and I'll be right as rain -- and that's good, because her birthday's coming up in a week! Now I have to figure out how to make her the perfect birthday ...

I think you may well find that Emily's perfect birthday is simply having you there :)


Feel better soon

Thanks. It's mostly settled into my sinuses, and I've had sinus problems for so long that I should be used to it -- but I'm not. But the really bad part is that I don't get a vacation -- I'm only taking a couple of extra days off while Emily's here. Still gotta make a living!

Aww...that sounds like me, coming down with a bit of a cold the day or two before Chris got here.
Luckily it was only in my nose while he was here and wasn't that bad.
Hopefully you'll get all better quickly. =)

I'm sure Emily will be happy with anything you get/do for her as long as it includes you...

I sure hope she will -- I know she's happy to be up here, but she wishes I didn't have to keep working my regular shifts through the whole time. In any case, sinus problems have become far too common for me, and there's not much I can do but manage my way through them.

Yeah...that's one thing Chris and I try to avoid while we get time together...work.
Luckily next month when I go to see him again, he won't be working anymore.
He's applying at the local police departments and is quitting his job at the truck stop.

What, he wants to be a police officer? Gee, he seemed so sane ...

Well, at least I never got as green as Elphaba, there! :-)
