When I woke with with an ear ache this morning on top of everything else it seemed a trip to the doctor to sort things out was in order. So I called, only to be told that I would not be seen as they "were trying to keep sick people out of the office" but there was an antibiotic called in.
I'm complaining, I know. Our little family has been sick for months it feels like and I'm just so stinkin' tired of it.
The good thing that happened today is I saw a friend that I have not seen since November (because both of families have been sick constantly). She stopped by and we exchanged late Christmas gifts as we stood apart from each other out in the driveway visiting for a few minutes in spite of it being 20 degrees outside. I guess that's considered risky behavior now but it was the nicest thing.
It seems like this has been a really long winter and it's only January.
