When it rains...

I know Mondays are pretty terrible, so I have to take the good with the bad -- but today is literally 80% bad to the 20% good! Augh!
My boyfriend went to the doc-in-a-box early Saturday morning and was diagnosed with walking pneumonia... this was after a night of tossing, turning, fever-induced shivering and coughing his brains out. Same for the night after, but at least he did have the first round of antibiotics in him!
My dog has also been waking me up the past few nights. She has woken herself up once or twice (and in turn, woken me up!) with these horrible, deep chesty coughs followed by a round of almost gagging. I'm taking her to the vet this Thursday anyway for routine blood work, so I guess I will just add that one to the bill. One of my vet tech friends says it may just be allergies/dry throat from the lack of humidity, so I am going to vacuum her bed, the area where she lays down mostly & dust, and see if that helps her out a bit.
I also found out my windshield cracked and needs to be completely replaced, and it did it sometime between when I got to work this morning and when I was leaving for lunch. The warmer weather must have opened one of the nicks I got from flying rocks on the highway. Full replacement quote? $368.95 (plus tax), plus 24.95 if I want them to come to me and fix it.
So besides being overly tired and stressed, I did have a generally good weekend spending time with friends, cooking dinner & relaxing with my boyfriend and we did go to see a concert that I was dying to see (The Birthday Massacre, at Gramercy Theater) -- so taking in the good with the bad, it could probably be way worse!
