The final push

Well, one of the pills actually was an antibiotic, so over the course of 5 days, I've steadily improved. Now the pills are all gone, and I'm mostly better. I've kinda leveled out, where I'm a bit sniffly and phlegmy still, but I look and feel a heck of a lot better than before. Hopefully it's just my body working things out, and it'll clear up this week. I don't normally get sick, and when I do it's usually just the sniffles and some rest and OJ gets me right again. But every now and then it hits me like a sledgehammer and I can't do anything but whine and complain about it.

I've started back to the gym, which after not going for over a week, has me feeling the pain, since I have to start getting in shape all over again. Beyond that, I've only got 2 weeks left of work until I'm through with my contract. I'm supposed to go sign on for another year sometime coming up, though I don't know when exactly. I'm always a bit anxious about that, I have this intense fear that something'll happen and I won't get it. I'm sure everything's fine, but until the contract's signed, I won't feel secure.

I'll have time off from the 17th until sometime in early April, during which time my friends Aaron and Molly are coming to visit. I'm psyched about it, and I've got lots of things we can see and do. Having friends visit is great, it gives me a good excuse to go out, blow a bunch of money travelling and do and see things that I always put off during the normal course of events. Plus, they're friends from home, and it's always good to have visitors. I just hope they like karaoke, cause we're gonna do a lot of it.

I'm glad you're feeling better, hope you continue to improve.

I know we all keep saying that we need to come visit you, but I'm starting to think more seriously about it. How are the summers there? Hot?

Hotter and more humid than Indy. Plus it's either rainy season or typhoon season. Yay. I'll be off all of August (the hottest month), but might take off somewhere else (maybe India or Borneo).

Spring or fall is the best time to visit. Warm and pleasant. I've got time off in spring, and quite possibly in fall, but maybe not that much. Last year, I didn't know for certain until the week before that I had 11 days off.
