Good morning. I have so much I should be doing but I don't feel much like doing it so I am here writing about what I should be doing but am not. :-)
I did manage to get up early and get to the grocery store before 8AM and I got my shopping done. It was freeking cold out there, -10 degrees, but the sun is shining and it should warm up to around 20 degrees by lunch time. We are expecting 8-10 inches of snow tonight into tomorrow. That's not making me very happy, just in case you were wondering.
I woke up feeling congested and my throat was scratchy so I think I have a cold coming on. I picked up some chicken at the store and it is now simmering on the stove. I am making some home made chicken soup so hopefully that will help. I've been drinking OJ all day but it's probably too late to really help much. I just hope I don't get that strain of flu that has been going around. I had a flu shot in November but that doesn't mean I am totally immune.
I've been busy all week at work, catching some OT whenever I can. There's been a lot of inquiries and possible orders being taken so my workload could increase really quickly. It sounds good to me. I was really digging the big checks last month.
My new bed is fantastic. I haven't had any trouble getting used to it. The only 'issue' is my bed sits a lot higher now than my old one did, and I have to practically climb up into it instead of just laying down on it. I have short stubby legs and it was kind of funny figuring out how to get into bed that first night. LOL But I managed, and I am considering a trip to Walmart to pick up a foot stool so I don't pull a muscle trying to go to bed. It is like sleeping on a cloud though, and I have slept completely through the night ever since Saturday.
It smells good in here. The chicken is all cooked and I have it cooling now. The stock is nice and rich and I am going to add some vegetables and noodles too. There's nothing like home made chicken soup to make a -10 degree day feel warm.
The laundry is done now so I should get it folded and put away. I am feeling a bit better so I might get out and head to Manchester to run some errands before the snow flies.
I hope you are all having a good day. Stay warm and dry.
