Today is our anniversary (16 years), but we’re going to postpone it for at least day. Or maybe just extend it? Whatever works. We got up at 4am this morning, drove to the airport, got on flight 1 of 2 (which I slept through – yay exhaustion), had a quick layover in Minneapolis, and then got on flight 2 of 2 to Portland. We got home around 4:30 (which felt like 7:30), then had to run back out to the store for milk so we can have tea tomorrow because neither of us is 100% yet. Actually, I’m a total mess (although I think I feel better overall). I look like I’m about to turn zombie. I went to Urgent Care Tuesday afternoon because the bottom half of my left eye is solid red, and after about 30 seconds (if that), the doctor I saw announced I have pinkeye and prescribed antibiotic drops. I’m taking them even though I’m not convinced I have pinkeye or that it’s not the viral kind, but they’re making the skin under my eye yellow like a fading bruise, so actually, I look like a zombie who’s being abused by her spouse. This is how I traveled today. With my glasses on, of course. No contacts allowed right now. I might be going back to my own doctor tomorrow.
Anyway, today isn’t a good day to celebrate our anniversary because of the zombie problem and the travel exhaustion, so we’ll try again tomorrow. Tonight we’re having pie for dinner and watching A Royal Night Out and then sleeping until a train wakes us up.
