The Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Cold

There is some sort of cold going around that seems to linger forever.

You guessed it…I got it. It seemed to go away, and then came back in all its snuffly glory. I’ve since been able to mostly shake it. I now only have a slight sniffle and a desire to be lazy.

Okay…the lazy part is usual. It might have nothing to do with the cold. But I’m going to blame it on the cold anyways.

However, in the good news department, work seems to be going supremely well. I had another job offer the other day for a client that would fit nicely in with my existing schedule. The bad part is I’ll be even busier than I already am with my 6-day work week, but I do enjoy my job and it will also mean a few extra bucks in the old bank account.

Social work is very rewarding but no one (that I know of) ever got uber rich doing it.

I plan on taking some holidays in December, possibly coinciding with Christmas break so I can capitalize on the extra paid days.

So in celebration of finally shaking this nasty cold, I thought I’d share a few recent pictures with you. I hope you enjoy them!

I took a client to an archeology museum and this totem pole was there. I found it a bit creepy, but they thought it was a hoot.

My wife saw this in her shopping travels and sent the picture to me. This is what I'm going to dress up as next Halloween!

It's hard to tell from this picture, but this is a life sized replica of a longhouse. Pretty cool, right?

Another shot of the model. I liked it, okay!

No picture montage is complete without one of my pal, Dexter.

There you have it.

Oh, and in other news, my wife and I plan on taking on a vegetarian diet. I’ve written about my ethical concerns with eating meat in previous posts (while still stuffing my face hypocritically with lots of savory meat) but I’m finally planning on doing something about it.

More about that later. I’ll be sure to post here about my results.

  1. Congrats on the new job, I dont think I could be a social worker though, all it would take is seeing a child who was mistreated and I would end up going off on somebody. I’d be fired and probably in jail after the first day.

  2. It takes a special person to be a social worker of any kind. 😊 yes the totem is downright creepy, especially the tongue! Hmm pondering a long house, the hulk gone wrong you say and of course beautiful Dex. Good luck with the vegetarian diet. I’m afraid I’m a meat eater, don’t consume as much now, but I enjoy my steak and yes I have pangs of guilt too. πŸ˜’

  3. Congrats on your job offer, hope it works out well for you! And good luck with the vegetarian diet, hope that work out well too. It’s great that both you and your wife are doing it together, that ought to make the transition a bit easier. Glad you’re feeling better, being sick really sucks, hope that residual sniffle takes a hike soon too. πŸ™‚
