Well, I’ve been sick since Monday now, and it sure is getting old. We even had a heat wave, two beautiful days this weekend, today reaching somewhere around 60 degrees.

But alas, going upstairs too quickly throws me into a coughing fit, so I am unable to take advantage of this crazy weather to ride or hike.

I feel like I’m on the upswing now, and since my last day at work is December 31 (this coming Wednesday), I may have too much free time on my hands. Of course, at that point, I will need to put a lot of work into finding work. There have been some developments on that front, but I don’t want to make any announcements just yet. Stay tuned.

For the first time in a long time, I drove to work today. I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, and while I could ride there, I don’t know of a good way. That and breathing is not going so well with my allergies acting the way they are. It was too nice of a morning to drive to work. Alas.  I’m really missing out on some of the best riding weather through all this, and it’s driving me crazy. I sure hope the doctor can give me something to help with these allergies and the headaches I’ve been getting lately.

I’m hoping to do some riding this weekend, if I can breathe well enough to do so. It’s been over two weeks now since I’ve gone for a ride, a couple of commutes notwithstanding.

Back … I hope

It’s hard to believe how long it’s been since I wrote anything here. Back on April 11, I had my wisdom teeth out. I was pretty afraid going into it, but I tried to convince myself I was overreacting. Immediately following the procedure, I felt surprisingly good. I was suddenly awake, and I was numb, but it didn’t seem so bad. I got a false sense of security. The next two days were terrible, and things have gotten gradually better since then (except getting dry sockets, which are still healing), but I was pretty much out of commission last week. I called in sick Monday and Tuesday and worked from home the rest of the week. I planned to go into the office yesterday, but woke up with probably the worst headache I’ve ever had.

Finally, today, I went in to the office. My ride to work this morning was also my first time back on a bicycle since my surgery. It felt good to ride, but I think it’ll probably be a couple more days at least before I can do any major riding. Naturally, during my hiatus, Spring hit in a big way around here, everything blooming, and the weather was finally warm and sunny. I missed out on some prime riding time, but it feels good to be back, at least to some extent.

I did manage to do some photography in there, taking some cool infrared shots, and we went hiking once. More on that later.
