|Townhouses we're staying in|
See how I used words in the title I wouldn't normally use? Yeah, that's because I'm in Ireland :) I have to get my "local flavor" somehow because I've been essentially trapped in the house for 2 days with a second showing of last week's cough, now starring Fever and Vomiting. Sigh.
I went to the doctor today and it was actually quite a pleasant experience. I had no appointment but they said they could squeeze me in, and I waited about 30 minutes, during which the receptionist *and* the doctor apologized 3 times for how long I had to wait. When does that *ever* happen at home?!
I went downstairs to pick up my prescription at McSweeney's Pharmacy (sadly, not called a "Chemist") and they filled it immediately. And it cost $7. Crazy. No wandering around the store for 40 minutes while hoping it might be done soon. I'm talking about you Target and Bartell's Pharmacy...
TJ and BabyT took a drive yesterday to see a stone circle and some sheep, which T is still talking about. She says the sheep she saw were "black and white and purple" and "there was a baby sheep who got lost and his dad had to call him back". I took another nap while they were out.
We did visit a pub on Monday for a late lunch and TJ got his pint of Guinness. It is AMAZING how much better it tastes here. (And no it's not just psychological - it's actually different - very smooth and almost sweet...) It's probably a good thing I can't drink now.
I'm hoping the antibiotics kick in soon (and actually help!). I'm ready to start my vacation outside of our rental house!
