Don’t you just love starting a new job, getting exposed to new germs, and ultimately experiencing a new round of illness? Yeah, me either. Not even two weeks in the new office and I spent a day and a half at home in bed, feeling feverish and sleeping the afternoons away, nestled betwixt two cats, each intent on perfecting the perfect pike diving position. I blame my boss – he missed three of my first four day days after he succumbed to this weird flu-like bug. Hopefully the worst is over for me. I am, however, feeling snarfly and phlegmy. Yay. That involves a plethora of sounds you really don’t want to hear in the midst of a cubicle farm.
|Nowhere near the pike position ... no gold medals for these two.|
Oh, yes, I’ve also gone a bit crazy with the whole reality television watching lately – Survivor is definitely on the schedule each week, along with Biggest Loser but I’ve also gotten sucked into the horrific car wreck that is Celebrity Apprentice. Not sure quite why but there you go…
Not much else going on. The weather is scheduled to hit the 20s next week. I really have to start thinking about planting soon. We’ve sown some cat grass for the kittehs and a few carrot seeds but we don’t have enough dirt for anything else. We’re not planning on growing as much as we have in the past – its too expensive and the balcony can look a it crowded. However, we’re growing lots of grass for the felines, a couple of bean plants, cherry tomatoes, a few flowers, the carrots (if they grow) and maybe some lettuce. I’m tempted to try and nab a spot in the community garden again but neither mom or I liked the woman who was in charge of it. The word Nazi has been bantered about in our household over her methods but that might be just a smidge too harsh. Maybe but probably not.
What are you growing this year?
Currently addicted to reality TV? What’s your poison?
And does anyone know – wasn’t there a competing travel show that aired around the same time as the first season of The Amazing Race? I’m sure there were two similar shows on different networks. The Amazing Race was hugely popular while the other tanked.
