I slept, woke up, then slept some more.
I have an infected ear and possibly infected sinuses too. After 4 days of dealing with heavy duty sinus pressure and frequent nose blowing, I went to the clinic yesterday. The doc took one look in my ear, and prescribed 500 mg Amoxicillin, 2 horse pills 3x daily. Two nights ago I wanted to chop my head off, the ear pain was so intense.
I am having trouble chewing regular food, so I made myself some mashed potatoes. I have a orange glazed roast duck in the oven, but am not sure I will be able to eat it without chopping it into smaller pieces. I'm sure I'll manage.
I went outside motivated my lazy b*tt for about 20 minutes to enjoy some sunshine and the most welcome 65F temperature. I saw tulips and crocus leaves just up, in my front garden. It is unusual to see both emerging at once.

Thanks.
Between not being able to drink beer (on antibiotics) and the trouble with chewing, I'm figuring 3-5 lbs will be gone by the next Wed weigh-in. There's always a silver lining somewhere.

Emily: Andrea, my God! You look so chic.
Andy Sachs: Oh, thanks. You look so thin.
Emily: Really? It's for Paris, I'm on this new diet. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

Visited the dentist to have a temporary crown re-glued. He is a wonderful dentist, no charge for this visit.

Went to the gym and took two classes: Zumba and water aerobics. Lost my locker key in the process----and they are charging me $50 for the lost key!

Organized a Meetup tonight for one of my social groups. twenty people came. Dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant and then coffee at a Korean place. Fun to meet new people, but organizing sort of felt like w*rk.

Wow! That's insane! My gym just switched from the built-in locks on lockers, to hasps and now we have to bring our own locks. Actually this is pretty nice, because we can pick any locker we want. I put my initials on my lock so it is easy to identify.

Today I talked to a man at my gym who is 90 years old! He still comes to the gym every single day. Pretty inspiring.

Sorry you are felling poorly, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I noted that I received the final instalment of the nice cash payment which a company gave me for some software which I wrote in my free time with no expectation of reward. I celebrated by moving it to my savings account. That, plus this week's excellent market, enabled me to update the headline figure in my signature.

Made three trips to the dentist to have a temporary crown re-glued.
He said it was a first for him (he's been in practice more than 20 years).
I suggested he write a case study.

That happened to me. It came out while eating lunch and I had to make an emergency appointment. But only one!

Well, it has not been a fun week. My right ear is still on the blink, but I can actually sleep without pain and my balance is back to normal. I can't remember the last time I had an earache like this. I'm still taking my horse pills (Amoxicillin) and Alleve only as needed versus constantly.

I have been in the house all week and have CABIN FEVER. And of course it is rainy and chilly today.
Mr B is studying, so I have to entertain myself. Hmmmm....

It feels like a good day to plant some tomato, pepper, and impatiens seeds and divide my over-wintered geraniums into individual hanging pots.

My federal tax refund is in the bank.

It just doesn't make any cents, does it?
