The world is but a perpetual see-saw.
--Michel de Montaigne

I haven't posted in a few days mainly because I've had computer issues, but also because I've wanted to spend my energy elsewhere. I think I may have spoken too soon when I was singing the praises of getting over the flu. I'm not down-and-out sick, but I'm not quite myself either. I've really been having a lot of trouble falling asleep at night. Not just falling asleep, but staying asleep. I've been napping here and there to try to offset the exhaustion, but that only disrupts my sleeping pattern even further. Maybe I should get back into doing yoga in the evenings to calm myself down.

On another matter completely, I hate the weather right now. It's January, and I'm wearing my summer clothes. I don't want to wear the summer clothes. For crying out loud, let's have some good, dreary, winter weather! I think it's Jo Dee Messina and Tim McGraw who said it best: "bring on the rain." But I digress...

The mornings have been getting progressively better in terms of airway clearance. That goop has gotten thinner and isn't as colorful as it once was. I don't dread getting up in the middle of the night to walk to the bathroom in fear that I'll have a "hack attack" on the way there. My appetite isn't too remarkable though. I'm getting plenty of calories since I'm drinking lots of milk lately, but there isn't much that appeals to me.

Aside from health things, life is pretty good. Work is sort of hit and miss as far as productivity goes. I'm trying to remember if it was like this at this time last year as well. Tomorrow should be interesting--I'm attending the S.A.M.E. (Society of American Military Engineers) luncheon where I'll get to hear about the engineering efforts during huricane Katrina. I'm looking forward to it as a chance to learn more about a professional field that shares similarities to my chosen line of work. Besides that, it will a great opportunity for "networking" which is something that will look good for my upcoming performance review at work.

Current mood: slightly out of sorts
Current snack: Kudos bar
Emotional weather: slight fog
Health-o-meter: 80% of baseline

I am interested to hear about your engineering meeting. So much needs to be done here to rebuild. We went to Biloxi last week for the first time since the storm. It is absolutely devastating. I'm glad to know people are working on it.
Love and Light,
P.S. I will pray for your continued healing.
Lauren, I hope you are feeling better soon. They say the flu this year isn't as bad as other years, but I tend to disagree!!

God Bless,
Hi Christy,
I will definitely send you an email soon when I have a longer period of time to describe what I learned. Let me just say that it was truly eye-opening to see the situation from a non-media hyped point of view.
I would give almost anything (not really) to have some nice warm weather. I am sick of the winter already.

I think you are just bragging. Just kidding. ;D I hope you are doing well... and "bring on the sunshine." I wish we could trade and then we would both be happy.
