I was out on Thursday. Couldn't get into Urgent Care until late morning. Turns outI have, as I had begun to suspect the previous night, that I have bronchitis. No biggie, I've had it before. So I get scrips for the usual stuff: cough syrup with codeine (taken only while I'm at home), and antibiotics. But instead of the usual omoxycillin, I get this new stuff -- Zithramax. One dose a day for five days, and it'll keep working for the following five. Cool.
This morning, I do feel better. Didn't get the sleep I thought I was going to get with the codeine, but I'm not hacking up a lung or anything. Go me.
Plus I took yesterday off as a sick day. Mom in Law was watching Marcus, so I didn't have to worry about him. Plus, the smiles he sent my way made me feel lots better.
Mom in Law heads for home tomorrow, but she'll be back up in a couple of weeks with more family in tow for Marcus' christening. We gotta get the invites out this weekend.
However, my uncle is going to be in town until Monday. The supposed plan is to get together Saturday night and hang out, and then on Sunday perhaps go candlepin bowling and then over to my parents' for dinner.
Ah, my uncle... who, upon hearing that my friend zonereyrie had legally changed his name to MegaZone said, "Well I guess I could change my name to Velociraptor..." The man has a warped sense of humor. Guess I know where I get part of mine from then, eh?
We are now in a time where emotions in the New England area run high. We're down to the last weekend of the regular season, and our boys are facing their dreaded rivals in a season-ending showdown. As it stands, we're down one game for the AL East title. We're tied with Cleveland for the wild card. It all comes down to this weekend, winner take all. I can assure you that come Monday, none of us will have fingernails left and our teeth will be painful from all the biting. Patriots? Uh uh, we're watching the Red Sox in this battle. Let's hope for that monumental sweep, because if we lose one, we're tied and will need an extra game.
Why Not Us Again? We're due...
