February, you have been one savage bitch to me. It has been one hell of a ride this month. So many things just kept going wrong or testing me. I was sick for nearly two weeks and combated strep throat while I was at it. Thank god for penicillin. Not long after that I got really bad allergies. Allergies may seem like no big deal to most people, but when you fly around in a plane for a living, being congested is the worst.
Just when you think getting sick was the worst of it, I got two flat tires on the way to the work a few days ago. Luckily it happened a mere two minutes away from the employee parking lot. I drove my car into the lot and went to work. What choice did I have? I could not deal with it until I got back into town. I had a wakeup time of 3am then I did BWI-LAS-PDX. Once I landed back in Portland I had to deal with those damn tires. Two tow trucks later (because they brought me the wrong one at first) and an hour wait at the tire shop, I was finally free to go home and pass out. Luckily my tow truck and the two tires were completely covered by my insurance and a warranty.
This post is not meant for me to seem like I am whining. You know, look at all of the bad things that happened to me, boo hoo! Quite the opposite. Bad things happen to every one of us. We just have to take what comes at us and deal with it in the fearless way(s) that we can. We are survivors. Next time the bad days come, you tell them “not today, bitch!” I am fearless. I am strong. I am a survivor. Come at me, March!
