Snow Blahs

It is snowing here in wild Wyoming again. Actually it started snowing yesterday afternoon and isn't expected to stop for another day or so. Not too much of an accumulation yet with only a few inches thankfully.

I do not like the snow and cold at all. Well a little here and there is OK, but this whole snow and cold from September until May is a little bit extreme! Hopefully this winter isn't insane but it sure looks and feels like it is going to be a whopper!

I go see the PA again on the 2nd and the Rheumatologist on the 11th. I am hoping for some kind of miracle I guess. I do know one thing I am so sick of taking antibiotics that it isn't even funny!

Hunting season is finally winding down!! This means that work should go back to more regular hours. I am hoping that I don't get laid off again this winter though!

Looking for my Groove

I just can't seem to get into the groove. I love blogging and checking in with all my blogging friends, but somehow I just can't find the time and energy to do it. Well to be honest I can't find the time and energy to do a lot of other things that I really need to do too.

I finally got over the horrible UTI only to be greeted by a massive sinus infection that also is lingering. I think that the recurrent illnesses might have something to do with almost 100 hours worked in 9 days, but again I could be wrong. All of those hours might have been worth it if the pay check looked great, but it wasn't stellar.

I saw yesterday that one of the grocery stores in the town where my husband works is hiring a bakery manager and that it pays almost double what I am currently making. I am going to try to see what the hours are and possibly apply for that position. I also saw that the University also in the town where my husband works has an opening for a research scientist. I really need to get on sending in an application for that one since it would put me back into a science position which at least would be using my degrees.

The doctors and I are also looking into the possibility of hypothyroidism that isn't showing up with blood work. I have been taking my temperature prior to getting out of bed all month and I have been shocked to see numbers ranging from 96.2 to 97.8 instead of the typical 98.6. I also have a lot of symptoms that could potential point to hypothyroidism instead of what they are blaming them on now. I guess that is why it is called practicing medicine?
