A Weekend Too Fast

This ended up being a very fast weekend here in Mary-land. Keith flew home Thursday night since his son was in the hospital. We had hoped to go out to dinner Friday night when I got home from work but his mother also ended up in the hospital. (Both are doing much better now).

Saturday we decided to skip Heather's October cupcakefest and spent a quiet evening together. Dinner at Olive Garden (not much appetite on my part so I now have dinner again tonight! Yay to not having to cook!!) and then just a quiet night at home.

This morning was a relaxing morning at home before we went off to visit his son in the hospital. Rather Keith visited, I hung out in the waiting room. Even though I am finally feeling better there is no way the hospital would let me near his son's room with my cough.

We went out for lunch before heading home so Keith could get his suitcase and head back to the airport.

The weekend was nice bonus time together as we ended up calling it, even though neither one of us liked the reason we got this time together. Still it went all too quickly. Now we're just counting down the days to Thanksgiving.

Now it's time for me to get the laundry done so I can start packing for my trip on Tuesday. A week in San Diego courtesy of work, hopefully that shouldn't be too hard to take ;-)

Well it's not hamthrax

Unlike several of my friends from Fred, I do not have hamthrax (or Swinebeck Flu). However whatever I do have is kicking my ass from here to Sunday. I even went to the doctor today and came home with a z-pack and some cough stuff.

I would like it better if it would start working a little faster though. Now I have a fever and some of the cough (which physically hurts I've been doing it so much).

If I don't feel better tomorrow (you better sit down for this one....) I will call off sick.

Yep it's that fun.

Travelin' (Wo)Man

Go ahead.... sing the Rick Nelson song... you know you want to do it!

Well today is the last day of my vacation and what a vacation it has been. I've been off since last Friday (10/9) and I've managed to be in 10 different states in that time.

Started out in Ohio on 10/9 and Keith and I packed up his car and headed out around 4:30 am (yes am...) and drove to South Dakota. He needed to move into his/our new apartment on Saturday so he could start his new job on Tuesday.

I came home on Monday (flew home from Nebraska) and on Thursday I packed up and headed out again.

This time it was the annual excursion to Rhinebeck with the Fredizens. Much fun (as well as coughing and sneezing were had by all) and we got home yesterday. Today is my last day off before going back to work for a few days. Then it's time to pack the suitcase (again) and head off to California for a week courtesy of work.

So for those keeping track at home the official list is...

South Dakota
Missouri (only to change planes but I was still there)
New Jersey
New York

Hopefully my plan of not leaving my couch unless totally necessary will help my Rhinebeck cough go away.

Sorry pictures will have to come later since I am not sure where the cable is for the camera.
