What up nerds? It's been a while. I have been sick. Had an infection that I *gasp* actually went to the doctor for. Am I not supposed to say that I had an infection? Does it make you think of ICKY things? They put me on antibiotics. After spending 5 hours in a cracked out Toronto hospital. Fun times.
Needless to say I was not feeling too hot. A fever and some severe aches took me out for a few days, and the lack of energy did me in for the rest. It's been two weeks and today I can truly say I feel back to my normal self.
The weather has been beautiful and I have not been abe to enjoy it on account of lying on my back all day, or working my ass off. I missed two days at work and you would have thought I was gone for two years. I have been working until 9:30, sometimes 10 o'clock at night to catch up and make up my time. Cool. Just what I wanted to do while sick.
But all is well in the land of Katherine's kidneys! I drank a truck load of water, took those antibiotics as if I would die without them (probably would in this case) and ate a plethora of healthy foods to kick the infection, and it seems to be working.
I am looking forward to this weekend because it is going to be a fun-filled family extravaganza at my parents house. My sister and I are going up on Saturday. We are having a family barbecue and then attending my bro's in-laws barbecue later on in the day. There will also be some beach sitting, some quarry swimming, and god-willing some beer drinking.
It's a long weekend around these parts, and I am going to make the best out of every part of it. My dad's surgery was re-scheduled to Tuesday, July 3rd, so this weekend will be good to hang out with him and do fun things before he is taken out for a few months (hopefully not that long). Nervous for Tuesday...every time I think about it (which I try not to) my stomach does flip flops.
Tonight though, tonight I got home from work and made a most delicious dinner. And then I cleaned. I cleaned like I had never cleaned before...only because it had been a while. I obviously wasn't feeling up to it and it was starting to get to me. Two people and three cats create a lot of mess.
We also had a watermelon in our fridge. So that made a delicious dessert. We had a ton left over so I turned them into watermelon-strawberry popsicles. And then I still had a lot of blended up watermelon so I turned that into a mango liquor watermelon slushy that will be perfect for after work tomorrow. The temperature tomorrow is going to feel like 34C (93F), and walking is hot work, so what better way to cool down? Something to look forward to all day. Ah yes, it's the little things.
I just noticed this now: that guys head looks like a penis. What a bellend!@@!%
Tonight is all about a clean house, a full belly, a clean me, and relaxing. Something I am in desperate need of. Three cheers to feeling better! TGIF tomorrow folks!
