I bought a new jar of Vitamin C and a bottle of that stuff Deanne recommended to help fight off a cold, oh, I found the name, Zycam. The Zycam has a yucky chalky taste and you're not supposed to eat or drink after letting it dissolve in your mouth - no cheating by chewing. Ew. I don't like it, but maybe it's helping.
I'm not really a medicine kind of person, but I do not want to be sick.
Talking makes me cough and I sound like a smoker, but I don't FEEL sick. That's good, right?
I haven't been running in two days and I miss it. I had a good 3 week streak going. But I have been walking to school and back at least twice a day. That's got to count for something...
In other fascinating news -
A housing maintenance man came by today to fix a few things. That's one of the bonus features of living in Base housing. They provide a handyman to take care of the little (and not so little) troublesome house things. Toilet trouble? call housing! Refrigerator door not sealing? call housing! Siding blown off and scattered through the neighborhood during a storm? call housing!
Today's list included trouble with the lights in the laundry room, sliding pantry door off the track, sliding closet mirror off the track, sliding screen door off the track (are we seeing a pattern here?) and toilet handle falling off.
Housing to the rescue!
John followed the repair man around and reported back to me about all the tools he had "he has a drill, mom!" "Mom, that guy has a ponytail..." "You gotta see the ladder - I think we need one of those..."
John thought that was totally cool. But here's my favorite part: while I was signing the paperwork after the repairman had finished, he said something like "You keep your house real nice."
Let me have an Hallelujah Chorus!
All that cleaning last week really paid off!
Now if I could just remember to take down the trio of snowman decorations. I keep forgetting that they are still hanging on the wall...
