This morning I had to take 8 different pills.
BC (hormones), Singulair (lungs), Allegra (allergy), 2 Omnief (antibiotic for sinus infection), Bidex (expectorant), iron, and Vitamin E!
Chemical overload? I have one of those special pill dispensers with the days of the week now or my counter would be covered with bottles. I had a huge earache from the infection but I don't think aspirin is a good plan. At least the sinusitis treatment will only last a week.
Since LJ has been pretty incapacitated the past 1/2 day, got some stuff built up in my head (and not just mucus)...
It's rained here almost every day this week. I have low tolerance for anybody complaining about this, because it implies that the alternative (sweltering, 90-100 F weather with bad smog & allergens) is somehow preferable. I can happily deal with bouts of 80s weather punctuated by afternoon showers. We have a drought anyway from no precipitation this winter, so rain is a good thing.
This weekend is going to be a busy one! Tonight I hope to go out to see the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra do a free concert at Piedmont Park, as part of the opening day of Atlant Pride. Tomorrow afternoon I'm staffing the Outworlders booth in the park and probably will end up there 'til at least 6 and might wind up going out to dinner or drinks with people afterwards. Sunday is the parade and hopefully I'll end up with some fun people to watch; otherwise I'll just have fun watching it by myself.
Ears are still killing me, but it's somewhat comforting to know that in a week things should be better, just whenever the infection subsides.
Storm is back from Germany, had a fab times she is telling me. Hooray!
So I pushed myself into finishing TP's Monstrous Regiment. I would definitely agree the book *does* improve towards the end and the last 100 pages or so had me turning pages actually eager to see what would happen. I still would give the book about a 5 on a 10 pt scale since the rest of it held zero interest, but towards the end I thought it was actually getting funny and snarky in a good way. That said, I kind of think this book would have been better as a short story -- condensed down, it would have been a lot harder hitting and presumedly funnier.
