130-136/365: Overdoing

I think this week’s photos capture clearly why the cold I have has been kicking my butt so thoroughly — I haven’t been doing a whole lot of resting and trying to get better. But given that I’ve had several vicious colds so far this year (way, way more than usual) I’m just plain bored with having to stop everything to hack and sniffle. So, I spent the week trudging through whilst feeling like hell…

Tuesday I did make a small effort to try to get better by staying home from work sick. I never left the house all day — heck, I barely left the couch. So, no picture.

    I am overwhelmed looking at the yarn shop photo. I can only imagine the fun if you know what you’re doing.

    You had some great seats for that hockey game!

    In a gesture of family solidarity, 2 youngest + mom have joined you with colds. For middle son and mom, this is on top of peak allergies. And yes, we could get more rest, drink more OJ…but we’re just plain unwilling.

    Did not even think to look for a post yesterday — not a usual Sunday thing. But then I see you were “down” again — do hope you and the Loons are all feeling a little better this morning!

    Are those signs on the fire hydrants to serve as notice? Just in case you are unlucky enough to live/work near a non-functioning one and there is a fire — do they think those signs will preclude a lawsuit because you had “notice” that there was no water available to put the fire out? Guess I’ve been working in a law office too long!!

    Feel better. Love ya, Mom

    @ Common Loon – Nope, no special seats for the hockey game; I took that picture from our regular seats in 425. My new camera just has a smokin’ digital zoom.

    @ Mom – Well, my goal is to *always* have the photo post out on Sunday, and I’ve managed pretty well the last couple of weeks, though it’s been much, much later in the day (11pm-ish, I’d say).

    As for the hydrants, I think they are notice, but not in the legal sense. There has been a huge problem with our hydrants in the past few years, and I think this is how DPW is sorting those that work from those in need of repair.
