This last week marks the beginning of the Flu Season! Work has been horrible! EVERYONE has been calling with upper respiratory infections and flu like symptoms and such! So needless to say...(insert sniffle here...) I have gotten sick also! It hit me fast on Thursday and by Friday I was home sick with a sinus infection! Thank goodness it wasn't the full fledged flu (say that 10 times fast!) but I sure felt like it was! I did however, get my flu vaccination early, so that helped the situation!

Only problem was Mom and Dad went to Florida for the weekend and I was on dog duty! I guess the dogs could sense my being sick because they were all super great and slept with me just about the entire weekend!

To top off the horrindous work weeks, since this is the flu season, NO MORE 1/2 days until the storm has subsided!!!! YUK! Yesterday was my first day back from being out sick which was Tuesday, normally I would be leaving at noon but NOPE...I ended up staying until 5:30pm...the paychecks will be great, but man is it going to be hard having to work a full week! Im spoiled to that 1/2 day! Hopefully by MARCH we will be back to our "regularly scheduled program"!

Of course we have been dealing with the Swine Flu! We have had a couple of cases that came back positive but not that many! Lucky us!!!

So wish me luck that this nasty bug doesn't hang around for very long!!

This apartment hunting thing is not going to quickly! There aren't too many places in baytown that are all that great! My mom did pose a great question Sunday, "Whats keeping you in Baytown, Lisha?"

Which brings me to my topic of the day...."WHY STAY IN BAYTOWN?"

I mean its not all that great, its just a city, i have a vehicle to get me back if i need to come visit the parentals and work is in Laporte! So why not move there? Can you tell this is a blog to convince myself that I need to take a leap of faith and, as Nike says, JUST DO IT(cliche' #1)? Well, hopefully after I have finished this blog I will indeed be pumped about possibly moving to LaPorte and trying new things!

I have been looking through the Baytown Sun to see what my options are for houses or apartments! With some "words of wisdom" from mom, I think I have choosen the option of either a duplex or an apartment, considering I do not own a lawn mower NOR am I not the "outdoorsy" type I don't think a house would be my best option for now! ( I have a little more growing up to do! :) )

So for now the apartment/duplex/place of my own hunt is still a foot! Wish me luck!
