A Busy Week Indeed

It tuns out that I was correct in my guess that I would get little accomplished in the past week. The week started out fairly benign, with regular work schedule and an evening meeting on Tuesday.

All bets were off as of Wednesday, though. Long story short, both Beth and I were sick with one of those 24-hour stomach flu things. It was an absolute nightmare. I haven't been that sick in I can't remember how long. For me, it started around 9:30 Wednesday morning; by noon I had left work, and by 4:30, I felt like I was dying (that was when we were at the clinic -- see below). However, by the time 11:30 rolled around that night, I was tired but not feeling sick anymore. The next day (Thursday) I was really tired, but not sick like I was on Wednesday.

Beth, however, was a different story. She started feeling ill around 6pm on Tuesday, got progressively worse throughout Wednesday, ended up somewhat dehydrated, got taken to the clinic by myself (who was not really in much better shape at that time -- 4pm), and ended up getting 'refilled' at the hospital where we both rested (her on a bed, myself in a chair one of the nurses brought in upon my request) until about 9:45 that evening. As like I, she was feeling much better (but tired) on Thursday. So we both took it easy on Thursday and Friday morning.

That's the abridged version of the story. My fever truly broke (the worst) when we were at the clinic side of the facility in the exam room. This was around 4:30 when the doctor walked in. He initially thought I was the one he was there to see. :P

Anyway, things are good to go again, but I hope it's just as long until the next time I have to go through that again.

Open House & Birthday Party

Saturday was the Free Source Energies open house; an event we definitely had to attend. It was cool, and I got to take some pictures of the model exchanger unit which they had in operation that day. I don't have the pictures anywhere yet, but they're just fresh off my camera, too.

It also happened to be the day of Dad's surprise 50th birthday party. Much to his dismay (he was adamant about not going to be surprised at a party), he was 'gotten.' That was a good event too, one at which I was able to see several people I'd not seen for some time. Good times to catch up.

Upcoming Times

This week has been pretty quiet so far, leading up to Thanksgiving. I know I'm not going to have any time to get any more things accomplished around here, but once Sunday afternoon rolls around, I should be in good shape to finally get some projects worked on. We'll see what happens.

Until next time...
