The good stuff (if you look at the good stuff)

So while my immune system is really fucked up, if you look at it on the positive side, I have made it for six weeks now without having a cold. Admittedly over the November - February time period I had one cold for at least three weeks, which isn't great, but since it's cold season, I think not being sick since the last cold ended is pretty darned good. Now if only that will hold until things finish reregulating, since I can't take any more paid sick time from work for a while (I'm guessing until July).

Health update: sleeping poorly (fairly stressed), mild outbreaks three or four of the last seven days. It's now entirely stress related, I think, and no more just random shooting off. My energy levels are very improved but if I have a major stress incident I am wiped out for all of the next day. This has killed my last two weekends. I really need my life to be less stressful but I do not see how I can take the hand of cards I'm playing right now and make it any better on a really quick basis; maybe I can do fifty-two pickup tonight and things might be better for a day or two but ... it's all very unpromising right now.

Also, I'm finding the lack of holiday to a sunny destination irritating, given the night temperatures have been near freezing and my house loses heat like a champion sprinter. Normally I would have gone to Madeira or Spain or something, but I was too sick to make plans. On the other hand, I wasn't really up for traveling, but I'm tired of the cold and brutally damp (snow, sleet) weather. Can I say the positive is that I've been doing a good job at saving money? Still waiting for the refinance to come through on the home place so I can look at buying a house in London ...

And I got another new egg today, a Valentine's special. This was, actually, the thing I was most looking forward to about today, which means I've really gone down the rabbit hole on this game. Adopt one today!
