So over the weekend, prior to heading up to my mother’s house, Anne, Courtney and I headed out to the local Kroger’s to get flu shots. This is the first year we’ve gotten shots and I’m hoping they work because Courtney and I caught the flu just prior to heading up to my parents for Christmas Eve last year and it made for a truly miserable holiday. Plus my arm started an annoying dull throb a couple of hours after the shot that got worse yesterday so the pain had better be worth it. Today it only hurts if I press on it so things are improving. Our timing was pretty good as the price on the shots dropped from $25 each to $10 on the day we went so it ended up costing a lot less than we expected it to. Hopefully that’s not because they think the vaccine isn’t working.
I was supposed to take Courtney out to do her Christmas shopping Saturday afternoon, but that got interrupted when the call for groceries came from my parents. With the snowstorm on the way we figured it was best to make the trip on Saturday rather than trying to do it Sunday or sometime during the week. Good thing too because we didn’t go anywhere yesterday. So I’ll be taking Courtney out something during this week to get her shopping in. The canceled school for her today so she got to sleep in whereas I still had to get up and come into work. On the plus side, the roads were clear enough and the traffic light enough that the trip in this morning went pretty smoothly. I was actually 15 minutes early and got to sit out in the hall with the rest of the team because the person that has the keys to the room was running late due to the weather. We didn’t get in until almost an hour after we normally open up in the morning.
Other than shoveling the drive which I mentioned yesterday, I spent the rest of the day playing World of Warcraft as the Feast of Winter Veil is underway and Call of Duty 4 as I’m almost at the top ranking with all the extra weapons unlocked. Watched a little TV, played some Tomb Raider Legend which I got from a family friend for some PC work I did for them recently, and basically lazing about as befits as snowy day. I’m sure you guys were much more productive than I was.
