Sick but we have an Address

By | April 22, 2014

Sick day

I’m down for the count big time. Everyone at work has been sick and it hasn’t been a quick one or two day back on your feet kind of sick. Our office is a petri dish for germs, it is a small area for 15 people with one way in and one way out. Usually I manage to escape what is going around, I do my best to eat healthy,  take vitamins, etc.

This time I wasn’t so lucky, it hit me and it hit me hard in a big way. When I got up yesterday for work my throat was scratchy, had a headache and my nose as running. This happens from time to time as I do have allergies and once I have a cup of coffee and get moving about it clears up and goes away.

Not yesterday, as the morning went on it got worse, my boss even told me a couple times to go home, I tried to forge forward but I kept losing ground. Finally I relented, clocked out and headed home.

Before I could make it home though I talked to the property manager where I had gone Sat. to look at a place. The townhone I had looked at was still available, they had received my application and all they needed were the fees to move forward.
So insead of going home I was off to the bank to get money orders.

I got to the managers office in due time and we talked a bi and then I signed some checks. When that was all said and Done I called Kayla and we talked for a bit, she was nervous. She was scared that something would come back and bite us in the ass and would mean we would have to fork over a higher deposit fee.

I tried to calm her down but she had already worked herself up. By that time I was feeling bad again and I needed to get home and get off my feet.

When I got home I took some Nyquil and it was straight to bed, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00. I slept, I slept till 9:00pm when I had to take more Nyquil. Kayla called and we talked for a few minutes until I couldn’t keep my eyes open any more. Apparently she had called me after she left work but I remember nothing of the conversation. Kayla did call me early this morning to wake me so I could call into work, which I’m glad she did as I don’t recall hearing the alarm clock go off this morning.

So it was like that till 2:00 this afternoon when I woke once more. The sore throat has dissipated, it is still there but not as bad. The headache has lessened and my sinus’s are not clogged and runny.

I’ve been doing my best to take care of my self as little flower has been threatening me with Vicks Vapor rub again. I also assured her that if I was not feeling considerably better by tomorrow I would call the doctor.

While I was somewhat up and about this afternoon my phone rings and it is the property management company. They ran the background and credit check and everything is good to go, we have the place.

They are doing the final cleaning on it this week and by April 30th I will be able to take possession.

MailboxThis is something that has been stressing little flower out not having an address and she has been feeling it worse then I have been. So when I called and gave her the news she was ecstatic.
Since I had seemingly slept through it last night, my “Nyquil induced coma” as she put it and I was feeling better we had a little talk as well, Daddy to babygirl. She was a bit surprised that what I set before her is going to push her boundaries a bit and the first thing out of her mouth was “even when we are dealing with all this stress?”

I didn’t relent, you have your task before you now I want you to begin this evening.

So where things stand now is that by the end of the week I should be able to do a walk through  of the place with management. They will send me a welcome package with the information needed to get power, Internet, cable, etc turned on.  Then by the 1st of May I can start moving in.

This coming Friday I will also be buying a plane ticket, this time though it will only be a one way ticket as come June 6th Kayla will be coming back with me!

    Oh such wonderful news Sir! This has to make you both feel so much better, and a big hurdle knocked down and out of the way! When everything falls into place like you both have had, that’s when you know it’s right, and blessed and meant to be! So very happy for you both!

    I hope you feel better soon…..

      Mynx, it is like a big weight has been lifted from my shoulders at this point. The hunt for a place was beginning to wear me down a bit.
      One of the nice things about it is that it is located close to work so it cuts my commute down less then half of what it has been.

      It does seem things are falling into place now.

      Thanks WW, if I wasn’t so under the weather I would be jumping about shouting.

      Starting to feel better, I didn’t know one person could sleep so much…lol

    I completely understand the Petri dish comparison…we’ve been trading illnesses at my location as well. Nothing worse than doing your best to avoid and still getting sideswiped. I’m with Kayla, Vicks Vapor Rub cures EVERYTHING. My sir doubts it, but I hold him down and slather it on him anyway. 🙂

    So happy to hear the housing issue is solved. I think that was our biggest hurdle when we joined forces. I became so despondent when place after place fell through. It is the biggest weight off when that piece is accomplished. Congratulations on your perseverance!

    Now that I’ve said all the grown up stuff, it’s on to the celebration!! Throwing glitter all around and spraying silly string!!!! Hooray!! A new home!! A fresh start!! Virgin rooms to initiate!!! PARTY AT YOUR HOUSE IN JULY! ok, no party…but could we send gifts?

      Yup, gonna need that shop vac, trip to Lowes in the future…LOL

      Finding the right place with the least amount of compromises was proving to be difficult. I have to give this one to Kayla though as I tasked her with doing some searching and initially she was the one who found it, then I just did the leg work so it seems it was meant to be.

      I had been doing the whole hand sanitizer thing for the past week and a half as well but it seems those nasty germs slipped through.
      Starting to feel a bit better but I have been VERY conscientious on taking my meds.

      Thank you PP, hoping tomorrow morning when I wake I will feel good enough that I don’t have to call the doc.

      The weeks are counting down now!

      Yes, somehow everything seemingly came together and I managed to see it through even though I was under the weather.
      Once it was all done I took to bed and stayed there for a couple days.
      Slowly starting to get back on my feet and feeling better.

      Ahh well if you want to know, check your text messages….hehehe

          Oh my goodness….can’t have you bawling LBP.

          She is to reach out to people more and stop living inside her head as she has a tendency to do.

    YAY! You guys have a home!!! It’ll be all go for a while, and yes a bit stressful, but lots of fun, too! Wowee. Just shows what a little effort (or a lot!) and some perseverance can do. Really pleased for you both and hope that nasty bout of the flu is long gone by now 🙂

      Getting back on my feet, first day back to work as of today.
      It’s taken a bit of leg work but it has finally paid off.

      We are both SO ready.

      Seems I’m to ornery for the germs and it didn’t last long, back up on my feet and moving forward once more.
