But it is Saturday, so I have been able to just relax, knit, watch TV and movies, and then watch Notre Dame snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. In spite of that last thing, it's been a pretty good day. I have been able to engage in my coughing fits in privacy, therefore not bothering anyone else, or making them think I'm infectious. (Well, a couple of times the Garden Kitty was startled and had to run downstairs, but I don't really count that.)
Yes, I still have The Cough That Will Not Stop and Has Now Caused Me To Pull a Muscle So That It Really Hurts When I Cough. The rest of the cold/bronchitis/crud/whatever has cleared up. So my plan for the coming week is to see if I can get in to see the doctor again. Because I don't get to see enough doctors on a regular basis ...
Thank you to everyone who sent birthday wishes to The Tim. He was quite pleased. We had a very nice day together on Tuesday (both of us took the day off), with birthday cake and presents in the evening. Then last night, we celebrated again with Karen and Sebastian. So I think it was a successful birthday event. Now for the next four months, The Tim and I are the same age. Which means he will have little to say about it, since calling me old would make him old too. And we can't have that!
So I saw two things in the newspaper today that intrigued me. First, the story about Jimmy Carter being banned from visiting Zimbabwe to investigate human rights violations. I find it amazing that Jimmy Carter would be banned from someplace. I do, of course, understand what Zimbabwe is doing, but still - Jimmy Carter??? Banned??
Then the story about the glitches in the new system in the space station that will recycle urine to provide drinking water for astronauts. Ew. Once again, I understand why it is being developed in the first place, etc., but still - ew.
Other than that, all that's left is this:
