Just a place for my old thoughts

Sick of being sick

Well I have been off work now for almost a week, allowing for Easter, with the head cold from hell. I went on my YLT conference the week before, came back, and hit the wall.

It is really tough coming out of such an amazing conference where you feel really excited about what you are learning and then come back to being really pathetic in just trying to survive day to day. Sad really.

The worst part is that Deb had exactly the same thing as me and was alone at home while I was away. Given how bad I felt over the last week she must have been really crap with no one to take care of her.

On getting back from the conference we met up with Deb's Auntie Betty who is a lovely person. We only caught up for the afternoon because I was feeling pretty horrible. If things had gone to plan we would have cooked dinner for them as well but I simply was not up to it.

So the month so far has been me freaking out about the conference (Deb and I had another argument) and then me being floored by a cold. No fair really.

On the upside I have been feeling better enough to play World of Warcraft and I have just been promoted to Officer as an Under 60 guild leader. That is pretty cool really and, although something in the 'fake world' is something that I am pretty proud of.

Other than that work is building up and I just 'Know' that the next few months are going to be murder. Let's hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Oh, and we have made up our minds about moving back to Brisbane which is good. But adds a level of complexity that I am not sure how I am going to deal with. I guess that is what makes life fun.

You're moving to Brisneyland? When? Where? Cool!
