No Rest for the Weary -- Yet

Published March 28, 2013 7:19 AM by Penny Mehaffey

It's been a long week. Springtime in Augusta means allergens go on the attack. (My garden city is on the list for poorest air quality.)

I had been doing well with Claritin for the past several years. But last week I succumbed to the barrage of pollen and bad air. I am breathing better now thanks to the addition of Alegra, Flonase and Sudafed. 

But allergies are not the only problem, there has been a bad stomach thing going around. We had three cancellations this week and two techs out due to the virus. I've had an MSLT every day and again in the a.m. I am so tired. I just want to sleep past 05:30. I can't wait for Saturday!   

There is a silver lining though. The lab will be closed over Easter weekend. It will be nice to be off and not on call. I am supposed to be off Good Friday, too, but am thinking of working for a few hours to take care of some loose ends and close the lab down. 

Meanwhile, tonight is A.W.A.K.E  night. I am anticipating a nice sized group. It means I will be at work from 07:00 to 9:30pm, so Friday may end up a "no go".  Anywho, I hope you all have had a productive week and that you get some time off to rest and enjoy friends and family over the Easter weekend.
