Blogging By Typhoid Meghan

This time I have a really good excuse for why I haven't posted in a while.  I have the plague.  Well not the plague but certainly a plague.  It started about 10 days ago as a mostly GI virus.  Thing One brought it home from preschool and proceeded to infect me, his parents, Thing Two and maybe the entire city of Boston.  The GI symptoms quickly and astonishingly morphed into a disgusting, chest rattling, nasty wet cough.  I saw the doctor and was diagnosed with viral bronchitis.  This basically means I treat the symptoms and wait for the sweet release of death, or recovery, whichever comes first.  I've got 50 bucks on death.

On top of the plague I am dealing with insane amounts of new information coming my way at school.  Do you know what 3 hours of Neuroanatomy feels like at 8pm?  I do.  It's not fun.  Not at all.

During this same period of time the weather in Boston has decided to do everything in its power to qualify for a schizophrenia diagnosis.  In my last post I mentioned that the weather was mild with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.  That's also what the weather is like right now.  In fact, I showed you a picture of campus just to prove how unseasonably warm and dry it was, remember?

Then this happened.

Yeah, snow.  We had a couple of days of heavy snow that ended up accumulating about 4-5 inches.  Then it was sunny for a bit, then it rained, and now I think the forecast is rain mixed with sun and snow. They want to cover all the bases here.  I guess the saying is true, if you don't like the weather in Boston then wait five minutes.  What this means for me is that just when I have the whole parka, scarf, gloves, hat, boots dance perfected, I have to turn around and start layering like it was fall.  It's all very confusing.

Here's something else that I've been having fun with while not blogging.

No, she isn't mine.  She lives downstairs and I just steal her when I need a little pick me up.  Wouldn't you? 

I'm going to get back to dying a slow death.  There are a couple of posts in the queue so either way there will be another post or two here soon.

Sorry to hear about the plague... Never fun at all. (The black lab helps though I bet!)
