Three Things Thursday

1.  I am sick AGAIN!  So tired of this sinus infection, nasty cough thing I've been battling for three of the last four weeks.  I finally saw my GP about it today because it's become obvious I require some professional intervention to be rid of this once and for all.  She prescribed antibiotics (she doesn't do that alot) and a nasal spray.  She also reviewed my blood test results from the bloodwork I had done a couple of months ago.  Her office had called me the day after I had it done and advised that I needed to start taking iron supplements.  Turns out that my iron was 2.  Normal is 80.  Ooops.  

2.  I'm typing this post on my new shiny MacBook.  Love it!  My HP bit it last week.  A problem with the videocard overheating regularly and finally frying the motherboard.  This last HP was a replacement that HP sent me after months of fighting with them about my previous HP biting it for THE SAME REASON! This time around HP is not acknowledging any problems and not extending any warranties.  The Internets are full of people ranting about this as it's fried ALOT of laptops.  I don't have the time or patience to fight with HP again and am officially done with them.  I have gone to Team Apple.

3.  I swam 2,400 meters on Tuesday.  I went to a Master's swim in the evening instead of my usual morning swim at the pool with no Coach to do the workout Coach Mary sent me.  I feel pretty good about finishing that workout as 2,400 is the longest swim workout I've done so far.  I got home really late though - 10:30 p.m. which is WAY past my bedtime.  This is the only workout I've done this week as well, and it's not looking good for tomorrow's ride because have I mentioned the I'm sick AGAIN.  Grrrr!  Cross your fingers for me that I'm feeling up to the 1.5 hour run on my schedule for Saturday.

I hope you all have a great holiday weekend!


  1. Congrats on the new Macbook. Welcome to the world of Apple! You'll never go back. Sorry you're sick though. Man, you're awesome in the pool. One day maybe I'll be able to swim 2400 meters. I hope you feel well soon.

  2. Hope you're feeling better. Both hubby and I have something nasty and I'm hoping it's just allergies.
