Pneumonia sucks. A lot.
I’m so glad to be getting back to normal. For almost a week after I went back to work (which was after a full week off work, sitting on the couch and getting up only to pick up Boy Wonder from school and to make sure he got fed), I was really off. the whole day would go by and I would have accomplished my work goals, but not a clue how I got there.
Pills are not fun, even if they do make you feel better.
So I finally feel like all of the garbage I had to put into my system (and all of the crazy side effects that they brought with them) is finally mostly working out of my body.
Yesterday, I was actually able to cook a full meal! Hooray! It’s been a while since I’ve had the energy to stand at the stove and tend to a pot or a pan.
Yesterday, we actually did a lot of yard work as well. Our cute little rental house sits on an acre of land, all of which needs to be mowed and trimmed on a weekly basis during the summer. We live off of a highway, so there’s a big drainage ditch I have to trim as well. Plus we have our little vegetable garden and flower beds….so we are pretty busy.
Chuck helped a little, she sat in the wheelbarrow for about a half hour, reading and playing with her animals, and then she helped pick up yard waste for another hour. She was pretty helpful. Boy Wonder was an enormous help, hauling all of the trimmings and weeds (and our Christmas tree, which I could have sworn got hauled off six months ago…) back to the clean green pile we have.
Today (I work Tuesdays through Saturdays, so today is my “Sunday”), Boy Wonder is at school for one of his last (*SOB*) days of 7th grade, so Chuck and I will be finishing up some weeding and hauling the pavers in for the patio I’ve been wanting to build for about five months.
Maybe tonight, I’ll be able to blog from the patio!
