Minor Freak Out here...

There is nothing like being ahead of the times. This is what I had to deal with last year and suddenly its like its been validated. Suddenly what Pete had is out there and apparently spreading. Its found in people with in tact immune systems. I am not sure this is a trend we wanted to start, but it helps knowing that there is research going on and that we aren't alone in this.

There are suddenly hundreds of articles today some posted just minutes ago... Google Cryptococcus Gattii (this is the strain that the infectious disease doctors suspect he contracted)

Life is doing a lot better than it was last year. We have hope again. I am not sure about planning for the future because I always worry about what is coming around the next corner, but for now there is happiness. We are settled into our house. We just got a new sofa and loveseat that made it feel homey again. The chairs we had made it feel a little disjointed. I need to save for a camera so I can take pictures again. This is really inconvenient when I want pictures of the boys.

I am settling in well at work. My second month there I was given an award. It is the You Make A Difference award Ikon does. I am not sure if it was just my area or region or the whole company. I was given a 25 dollar gift certificate of my choice. I felt really appreciated considering the mess the site was in when I started. It was kind of fun cleaning up the mess, I liked being able to solve the problems.

I love that I am able to work four tens so I can have three day weekends every weekend. Considering the drive it also helps on gas. I have about nine and a half weeks of actual scanning. If they don't want me for indexing I am not sure what will come next but I am pretty sure I will still have a job. I hope.

I was really hoping for another wonderful post by Pete. I always like to hear his side of this mess.

The drive to work this morning was messy with the snow. It was gone by the time I went home. It is the weirdest thing. I took the wrong car, but as an Idaho girl I really wasn't that worried.
