What a start to the day…

So started the day with an unplanned 3+Hour conference call for work, I had thought it was to be the normal 1 hour meeting and as such had made plans to meet up with some of my customers out-of-town. Needless to say I had to call them and let them know that I was going to be very late. Snow has been off and on and the roads have not been getting much attention from the road crews and as such were a tad slippery. Add in the fact that lots of people did not have their snow tires on and it made for a lot longer journey there and back. Unfortunately that ment that in the end I missed one of my store managers. One item that was good for the moment on the work side was that I will not be having the boss riding with me next week at this point and time, will possibly see him in a few more weeks at this rate.

Sick…

I have taken the last dose of antibiotics for my latest round of chest infection, still have a nagging cough at night though it is better. Mixing a number of drugs at night-time in an effort to get some rest and keep myself quite, last night was a bit odd for me as it seems two of my meds are not playing well together leaving me very dopey. Worst part was the fact that the back and arm are still hurting which leads me more and more to the conclusion that it is a pinched nerve rather than a pulled muscle as the drugs I am taking should take the pain away. I have once again tried the drug combo in a hope to pass out and rest, will see if this affects my writing as this progresses.

Weather…

As I said it appears that winter is finally here, with snow and the cold temps. Currently minus 14 + the wind chill. I think it is time that I stop taking the garbage out in shorts and sandals. Normally I find that as long as I have a jacket on to keep my core temp stable that I find that the extremities are not that effected. Alas it seem that these old bones are acting up more and more and I feel the chill. We will be joining the long line-up in the morning to see about getting my wifes winter tires on, she has also mentioned that the car seems to take a long time to warm-up so might have a heater issue for the dealership to look at. So far on the snow side we seem to be doing better than the towns around us for some reason, ran into much larger quantities out-of-town.

Sick Kids…

So one of the twins is back on antibiotics for another ear infection, how that came about with her out of daycare for so long is a bit odd, but it seems to be on the mend rather quickly and she is her normal self for the most part. Sister is on a new inhaler for her chest issues as well and it seems to be helping her get to sleep at night for longer times. Daycare itself has been shut down again due to operator illness. I miss summer time, when there was no daycare, kids were not sick, it was so nice.

Cartoon…

Well no comments on the idea of posting a cartoon on here based on the twins and life around them in general, the next question in regards to this idea if I was to do it is what would I call it…thoughts?

Happy Wife…

As the old saying goes, Happy Wife, Happy life…well my lovely wife is stuck doing report cards; one of her least enjoyed aspect of teaching. So before taking my drugs and being not able to drive I was able to complete a quick Ice cream run to help her through the drudgery of doing report cards, I don’t think I got enough…

Reading…

Have finished The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke from Orbit Books, new author for me once again, Orbit seems to have a number of newer authors that I have not come across before. Currently reading the next book in the series called Stormlord Rising. www.orbitbooks.net and www.glendalarke.com I will have to see about tracking down some of her other novels. After my current book I have book one and two lined up for the Brotherhood of the Griffon by Richard Lee Byers.

Gym…

Trips to the gym have been non-existent these last 2 weeks and until I can get this darn neck and back figured out I don’t know when I will get back at it. I can not even do time on the treadmill as each step sends jolts of pain as well so no clue what to do at this time.

So enough for now…as some other sparkly has my attention…till next time…OH SO SHINY…
