I know I've kind of dropped off the radar, but hopefully I'll be back soon.
The move went well, but was harder than I thought it would be. While I love the peace of this place, the limited closets and storage have proved to be challenging. Adding to all of this, I'm not quite done. Super positive though is Kitty has done no hiding whatsoever in this new place.
The day my Mom left, I worked a full day (on a Sunday) and then took that Monday off. Well, that Sunday night I started getting a sore throat. So, I took Monday to take care of myself. Well, that didn't last too long, but then the virus took hold. By that Thursday, I could barely talk. So, I went to the Dr. that Saturday, who said virus, and gave some prescriptions to help with the congestion and coughing. I've since learned that codine (in the cough syrup) keeps me awake. It basically did nothing. So, for two weeks I've not gotten a solid nights sleep. I finally managed some last night, but that was with Benedryl and I'm still trying to wake up.
Aside from not being able to truly organize my new home, I'm disappointed because I've not been able to exercise. I know my body needs to recover, but honestly, this is week two and while it's better it's not gone. I know this too shall pass, but right now, I'm just muddling through. To add to all of this, I head to a conference tomorrow. I think I'll be okay and hope that I continue to improve while away. I'm looking forward to seeing friends, etc, but a part of me just wants to veg on the couch for a bit. But, such is life.
At any rate, more on the move (and hopefully some pics) after my conference.
