Sniffles, Dogs, and Ping Pong Balls

Tags: ,
Sorry for going MIA when I owe Hawaii pics. I swear I will get to it. It's just that when I got back to Virginia, I had a couple of days for unpacking and settling in, then I had to go and house/dog sit for a professor for a little over a week. The house is right down the street so I can swing by my place very easily, but it always disrupts my schedule. While I was doing that, I got a terrible cold. It was just a head cold, but for some reason it completely knocked me on my ass. I spent five days in bed. I'd get up four or five times, never for more than a couple of hours and mostly for purposes of feeding the dog and letting her out or feeding me, then back to bed for several hours. Then late one evening I just suddenly came out of the fog and was awake and feeling much better. It was kind of odd. I'm still really congested, constantly sniffling or blowing my nose and coughing, but I feel 100% fine.

So now I'm back at my place. Since I was getting paid for the dog sitting, I made fantastic money for being sick in bed most of the time. Then I went to Kmart yesterday. They had a full-sized ping pong table regularly $140 on sale for $99. I had all this dog sitting money and we had a ping pong table when I was a kid that I loved so I just couldn't resist. I now own a ping pong table and I love it. Even if it did take something like 5 hours to put together. It is the craziest impulse buy I've made in a very long time, even if not the most expensive, but I don't think I shall regret it anytime soon. My dissertation progress may regret it, but right now I just don't care.
