So, as you know I was just diagnosis with mono. It explains a lot, actually. The fatigue, the depression, the constant feeling of malaise. So I looked at my time off tally, and realized that with sick time and holiday time (not including vaca time) I can have paid time off until Jan 4th. So I took it. Wow. Two weeks off seems like an eternity. I was supposed to see Matt in Idaho, but since I was sick I declined. Good thing since he regressed back to being a small child evidently, and threw a huge tantrum. He is back in stabilization. Police were called and everything. How warm and fuzzy as we trend towards this holiday season. But I digress. So I have the next 2 weeks off, and I am not sure what to do. If I was not so ill-ish I would hike and explore. So, my goal at this point, is to re-connect with my aspirations, and my life focus. However, this is also, for me, a recipe for disaster. I can get morbidly depressed when not actively engaged in "doing things". Here is to me and everyone else who is trying to "heal" emotionally and physically over this holiday time.
