Happy New Year!

Do I have resolutions? Well, in a sense --

I am going to make a concerted effort this year to take a picture for every prompt on the photo_scavenger journal.

I want to try and write something (anything) every single day. This one's going to be tough -- but if I even manage to set down a sentence every day, that will be a victory.

I want to continue to lose weight. I was doing well before the cruise-- and even there, I only gained five pounds which I have since lost--so I hope to get back to that after the New Year's festivities are done.

Otherwise? Not a whole lot. Maybe try and stop with so many frivolous purchases, but God knows that hasn't worked too well before!

I think I actually have bronchitis; if this persists once the holidays are all done, I'll go see if I need a course of antibiotics. It's settled into my chest and throat and I've been coughing up icky green gunk, so it probably IS bronchitis, but last night I woke up all sweaty and shaky, so I'm guessing (hopefully) the fever broke and I'm actually on the road to recovery. I certainly feel better today, although my voice is shot and I've been coughing like crazy with a tight chest.

On the whole? I really didn't have too bad a year. I know a lot of people are glad to be seeing the backside of 2013, but it wasn't horrible for us. Yeah, we had a few bumps -- including a plumbing emergency last week that ate up the Christmas money Mom sent we'd hoped to use to fix the furnace -- but overall? Not too horrible. I can only hope for a better year this year for everyone.

I have hopes and fears and dreams, like anyone. I don't expect that tomorrow will be all that different from today -- but all I can do is step forward.

If you're coughing up anything that isn't clear, that means you need medical attention!

If I weren't 1400 miles away...

Yes, I read WebMD. My interest in trying to get to see a doctor during the holidays is less than nil, but if it persists, yes, I will. :)

I went to the walk-in clinic today for yet another sinus infection. *sigh*

I shall vow to do keep up with photo_scavenger with you, though what are my odds? I have to go check the first 2014 prompt, because of course I've forgotten. *sigh*

It's "Turn." I'm totally at a loss, but I'll see if I think of SOMETHING before Sunday!

I should try the walk-in clinic. I keep forgetting we have one now...

Hugs! Happy 2014! (It's already turned for you, I think -- or will, shortly!)

if you're bringing up discolored mucus, it's bacteria. go in when you get a chance.

good luck with your resolutions

Yes, I read that online. It's sort of greenish bleack, so I know it's bacterial. If it's not cleared up in a few days, I'll stop at the walk-in clinic.

Thanks! You, too.
