Unplanned Absense

I know, I know, I have said it before and you are right I should be consistent with my entries, but this was unplanned. It is not like I do not have anything to write, but as life would have other options for me, I never had a chance.

Lets see, The week of Thanksgiving my wife became incredibly ill, probably the flu, combined with a sinus infection. The antibiotics they gave her did not work, then the ones that replaced the first ones made her sicker and finally a week later she received the right medicine and finally started feeling better.

Only staying in bed for a week and then trying to go back to work, she threw out her back on the first day of starting a new job. So again I was taking care of her. Well that next weekend came and I became ill. Thankfully I was not too bad and just had a minor cold. And finally the next Tuesday, my daughter started complaining that her head and stomach hurt. 103.5 degrees later, she had a full blown illness and with my wife starting a new job I was the one that stayed home and took care of her.

More than a full week went by before things were back to normal as far as illness goes, and now having missed the week of thanksgiving for vacation, several days the week after and then another few days the week after that I am swamped at work. Just posting this is taking away from several hours of work that I should probably be doing, but needed to take a break from the data processing for a while.

I never thought I would be back processing data, but at this job we all do pretty much everything. We are a small department in a bigger company and have to fend for ourselves most of the time. That being said, I think I finally see the end of the tunnel. Well at least until the holidays.

January is a whole different story. I may be traveling for the better part of the month and it will kick right off into our next busy season. The guy whose work I took over when he left to travel China said that normally December and January are down times, well I guess not so much this year. Oh well.

At least I am working and Christmas is almost here.
