The Saga Of New Mexico

On Monday, I went to the walk in clinic in Hobbs because I felt horrid. It started right after I got out of the theatre for HP5. I thought it was just from being in the air-conditioned movie theatre, cramped up in my chair for over two hours. But then I started shaking while sitting in the car and I could tell it was the on set of fever. I didn't sleep well that night and Monday morning I decided (with the Mom's help) to go to a clinic. Turns out that was a good plan. I had a fever of a 102.9 and also a nasty UTI.

What's even better than that? I had to load up my car with all my stuff before I got to the clinic because we couldn't stay at the hotel again. But that also meant I had nowhere to go after the Dr. and I was driving around Hobbs with Hunter, a fever and the temperature outside was triple digits. I drove around the entire town looking for a hotel with a room. Almost all the good hotels are booked all week long because there are so many people flooding into town for work. And the town simply cannot accommodate them all. I finally found a place at the Days Inn and I could not have been more relieved. I just wanted to lie down. And then I may have slept for about 24 hours. I still didn't feel better yesterday, but I felt a lot better most of today. No more fever, but I did have a headache. That's finally gone! Three days was a long time for a headache.

In better news, I think we have an apartment that we get to move into on Friday. We turned in our background checks and the application. So we just have to wait for them to clear us and we can move in. I haven't seen it yet, but it's a townhouse and it's in an area of town where there is a park and a pool. I can't wait. I'm so looking forward to going grocery shopping and being able to eat real food, no more fast food or chain eating. Do you know how hard it is to eat well? I think that's part of my health problem right now, my body isn't getting enough nutrients to fight this nastiness off and it's taking a lot longer.

Oh, and I also have a spider bite under my arm, in MY ARM PIT!

We went to Midland, Texas on Sunday, which is only an hour and a half away, and thank the lord they have TARGET! Along with a mall, and a Petsmart. So good thing the real world isn't too far away. This girl can't go too long without a trip to Target. It just makes me feel good!
