Some good, some bad.
So the good news? Oh, who am I kidding? I'm feeling really bad tonight. This cough and sinus will just NOT give it up! Between coughing like a seal during mating season, having my nose bleed at the drop of a hat, and my kidneys still doing the tango in my midsection, I'm getting a bit fed up!

I've decided to call in sick tomorrow. I already feel terribly guilty about it, but my head is just pounding tonight. I need to give in for a day.

Monday was to be my kidney biopsy and cystoscopy. I started to sort of freak out about it because all I could think was being on that table, not sedated, and starting a coughing fit while the B.A.N (Big Ass Needle) is stuck into my kidney. So I called the specialist to ask if it would be a problem if I wasn't better by Monday. Well, apparently my freaking out was for good reason. They have cancelled me for now and will now do the test on February 7. And I was advised to see my GP to get on some antibiotics so I'll be ok by then. Huh. Who knew?

It probably works better anyhow. BossDude is off Tuesday anyway, as his son is turning a year old (and again, I ask why I worry about taking time off?).

It's time for the self-assessment job review too. So I figure tomorrow I'll take the time at home to start it up. I'm never good at it anyhow as I really hate assessing myself.

I had that weird recurring dream again last night. The one where I'm losing my teeth and I can't find a dentist. I can feel the teeth loose in their sockets and I try to hold them in. But as it gets obvious they're not going to stay in, I start calling the dentist to help. They're never there, it's either Saturday, or they're busy or just don't answer. I become increasingly frantic that the teeth are coming out and when I wake up, I'm all panicky. Odd. It's the same dream everytime. I've heard that it's one of the more common recurring ones out there, but damned if I can figure out what exactly it means.

Oooh, Lost is on. More later...

A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
