Let's hope the contagious phase is gone.

Sorry for being out of touch for a couple of days, I got sidetracked with some stuff. And I am WAY behind on reading blogs, which I hope to catch up on this week...

I am sort of wishing that I had done Blog Secret, because I think it sounds like a lot of fun. And I have PLENTY of secrets. But, alas, I sort of chickened out. The things that I would write, well, I am kind of certain that they would be easily traceable back to me, and, well...then it's not a secret anymore, is it?

Anyway, moving on...it has been a crazy couple of days, and I am glad to be in the office with just my own notes from the last couple of days to go through and no pressing items. I guess I owe you some updates...

To start with, Munchkin really was sick...and not just a cold. We went to the doctor on Friday morning and found out that she had something of a virus tied to a respiratory infection that needed some drugs to get rid of. Also, later in the day I found out that two of her best friends had the same thing, so whatever it was, they caught it together, or one got it and passed it to the others.

Unfortunately, I had a bunch of stuff that I HAD to do out of the office on Friday, so I had to leave her home for pretty much the whole day. Just getting her to the doctor and back totally zonked her out, though, and she said she went back to be when she got home and didn't wake up until 3:00 in the afternoon. I stayed in with her on Friday night while The Boy went out with some friends. Digression...how could they kill Jim on Ghost Whisperer? Seriously, that is total bullshit!!!

Anyway, Munchkin was still a mess on Saturday, but started to feel a little better by Sunday. She was still super tired and kind of foggy, but he color was back and she was up and around a little bit more. I kept her home yesterday to be safe, but she is back at school today and feeling most of the way back to herself. I am hoping that this little bout is completely gone in a couple of days or else I may have to rethink our plans to go to Chicago this weekend. If she is still fighting a lingering illness, traveling will only make it worse...we will have to see.

Despite all of this, I managed to get an enormous amount of little shit done this weekend...random errands and such. So I feel pretty good about all of that. That oil change and new watch battery are really improving my quality of life!

OK...back to work now, I guess. I have three days worth of interview notes to put together into a cohesive memo, and I am loving that I have a whole day of peace and quiet in my cube to do it. Well, except maybe for lunch:-D

I hope Munchkin feels better, and I hope you still get to go to Chicago this weekend.

Yay for peace and quiet tho - I'm definitely enjoying those today, as there is no one but myself and the receptionist in the office at the moment!

I don't get it. What's the Blog Secret all about?

Happy - A whole bunch of people wrote posts that they sent to one girl who then shuffled them up and distributed them to be read anonymously as other people's blogs.

I'm glad that Munchkin is starting to feel better and that you got lots done today! And even better the whole day of peace and quiet. Sounds AWESOME!

Aww that sounds nasty. Where do you think they picked it up from?
