getting back on track

I'm back at work. My recent sickness made me think again about my eating habits, my vices, and how I love shunning medication and prescriptions; preferring proper rest and vigorous exercise over anything pharmaceutically made. It was a community-acquired viral infection that made the insides of my lungs all pulpy and lugaw-like. I was short of getting the P200+ kind of antibiotic. It was a good thing I was responding well to what I was taking in. I now see how important medication is, especially if you're down with something viral.

Anyway, I'm glad I'm not smoking anymore, so it made things a whole lot easier. I had thought initially that I wasn't getting any better any faster than when I was still smoking (coughs used to go away after a couple of days) because it took me almost a month to recover.

So I made it through. My wife's getting better and she'll be able to remove the dressings by the end of the week. Kysa also went to her first K1 school day today. She got too excited to even kiss her mama and papa bye-bye before dashing out towards the waiting school bus.

I came in this morning feeling optimistic, which was quelled almost immediately as I started wading through tons of email and notifications. And I won't get off work until 7pm! Somebody tell me again that this going back to school thing is worth it...really!
