My cough is not getting better. It teased me by going almost away and then coming back with a vengeance today. Today, I sort of feel like something heavy is sitting on my chest. I feel tired. (I also feel bored because am I really blogging about my cough? Yawn).
I’m thinking about going to the doctors just to make sure I don’t die of pneumonia, but my office just switched insurance providers on Dec 1 and my form was misplaced, so no one seems 100% sure if I’m actually covered at the moment and even if I was, I don’t have my card yet, so I really have no idea what my number is so I can’t even make an appointment. It’s one of those things that is alternately hilarious and tear-inducing.
So, I love Southwest. Yesterday, I discovered that now, four weeks before school starts, they’d finally posted the date for New Student Orientation. And it was the day before we were scheduled to come home (seriously? You couldn’t have put it up months ago?). So, we needed to change our tickets obviously.
I looked up our tickets online, couldn’t find anything about a charge to change them, called to confirm that there really was no fee, and changed them. We did end up spending almost $40 more of our vouchers because the tickets for the day we are now coming home are slightly more expensive, but I am beyond thrilled that there was no irrational fee and that it was so dang easy to change our tickets.
Of course, I’m less thrilled that it means less time with my family, but such is life.
And one other random thing. It’s really hard for me to not finish a book. I feel like such a failure if I just give up and move on. Today, I finished a book that I’d been so so tempted to quit and on Sunday I finished another that I’d almost given up on. I’m irrationally proud of myself.
