Lent 2017 – Day XXIII – I’ve been away…
In that time, I have had a kidney infection and am now dealing with an eye infection. I am not pleased. Sometimes I think I would be better off to get a Haz-Mat suit just to keep away from everything.
Well, last weekend I went to visit the fiance – and to go for a job interview. It was nice to spend a long weekend with the future Mrs.
So I get to Kentucky last Thursday night and feel fine. Friday morning – that’s a different story. It does from bad to worse and I end up calling my doctor trying to see if he can call in some antibiotics. He doesn’t work Fridays and is on vacation the following week. Time for plan B.
I do a search for “Urgent Care” locations and find the closest place – St. Camillus. I take my first legitimate solo excursion around Owensboro by myself and arrive in minutes. Twenty minutes later, I get my diagnosis and am on my way to Target for my meds. Within 30 minutes I feel better. I’m exhausted and need a nap. That evening at friends’ house to celebrate St. Patricks Day with an awesome Shepard’s Pie.
Saturday was spent cruising around – Rolling Pin and The Creme for breakfast coffee and donuts, Panther Creek for some sunny trail time, and Zaxby’s Chicken for late lunch/snack. Never been to Zaxby’s and was hoping they served chicken (their mascot is a Chicken). It was pretty good. The fries were great – looking forward to going back.
And as always – breakfast at Windy Hollow before heading home.
