The things that happen while you are sick

can be both interesting and a little sad. Last night TBG sat down and said that he needed to talk to me about something. Then he announced that today was his last day... and he paused before adding for the year. I swear I need to smack him once I'm back up to full strength. On one hand, I'm thrilled because that give my mornings back to me, no making him breakfast at five and running him to work. No having to leave early to pick him up in the afternoons. I can walk to work and not have to worry about having the car. Yeah, that part is good... but to have so much vacation time that he can take the rest of the year off (and still have time left over)... sigh... I plan to make sure I keep him busy with stuff around the house. Tis the season...

Last night was the coldest night we've had so far and to my horror, I realized that the plumeria tree was left outside. Normally, it would have come in weeks ago (it vacations in my kitchen during the winter), but it had been so warm. I'm waiting for daylight to see how badly damaged it is. I found it as a dying stick at a grocery store, along with two others and took all three home. One died, one was stolen, but this one I've babied for twenty years. Last year, it gave me blooms. This year, nothing. Tonight we will bring it in and maybe I can save it. Or maybe I should just cut the top off and try again... did I mention it's over eight feet tall now. One skinny leafless stick... I shouldn't be so attached...

I'm going to work today. Hopefully, my desk will not be buried. It tends to be where everyone piles stuff they don't want to deal with. At least I know the letters won't need to be handled today. The board is still signing them. I still have a few hours of sick leave, so if I'm not feeling up to it, I will come home at lunch, then I'm off until Monday. I work two and a half days and then off the Thanksgiving. Yeah, I can do this... I have all you guys at my back. I can do anything!

Love you guys, seriously.
