So the head cold I picked up (WHERE? WHERE DID I GET IT I WANT TO RETURN IT!) has not been fun, and the last time I piled myself with cold meds I got nasty side effects so I'm battling this one pretty much on my own. (Side note: "natural" cold remedies are a nice idea but... seem to not have any effect on anything besides my wallet... sigh) Which means I decided to stay home today.
I had the dentist yesterday and tried to cancel, but they said nah, come in anyway we have gloves and masks, so I did, but I took something before hand so it wasn't too bad. Oh, and no new cavities to deal with, YAY!!! (So happy)
So I figured since I was home and relatively upright (as in, not prone on the couch for a few minutes) I'd pop in and say hi. This cold has really invaded my head... as in I'm not so smart right now. Like I put the toaster on this morning, empty. *sigh*
Anyway. We have DIRE WARNINGS about storms coming in the next few days. Rainy rainy rainy and windy windy windy and EVERYBODY is talking about it and the dentist said people are actually cancelling appointments over it which... I... maybe people like to panic? (Or like to have an excuse to not go to the dentist, ha!) I mean, it sounds like Saturday will be interesting and I know that one of the issues is that wet ground and heavy trees (leaves still on) and wind can topple trees which can cause damage, but I dunno, maybe I'm uner-reacting? We shall see. I would love a good power outage, to be honest... but that means I should make sure I make my dinner tonight so I have leftovers for Saturday night, oh no, wait, it's only Thursday.. sigh. Anyway... I will make sure I have some sort of something to eat that doesn't need to be cooked... just in case. Not that power in the entire area ever seems to go out. I can't remember the last time I had a power outage here. Le sigh.
So, yeah. I'm hoping this cold is going to start making its way out of my system and I'm doing what I can to encourage it to do so. BYE BYE COLD!
I'll keep you informed on the weather if I think of it... you know I love weather, but there is a chance it will hit elsewhere and be milder than expected here. I think people need to remember that about weather sometimes... it's all just guesses. Which is pretty cool, methinks.
And yeah, I'm hoping my brain will be clear enough to get back to trying to remember the rest of my Burning Man trip this year. Not that my VISA is letting me forget much at all. *heavy sigh*
Hope you're having a good Thursday and you're healthy and happy and not at all worried about weather!
