Here it is, almost the end of March and I've been putting off writing until I had that first great spring flight. Well spring had it's own plan this year! I've been practically immobilized for a week with an awful cold/cough that shows up in a different spot every day. Before that I had almost 2 weeks with intense back pain...it was almost as if a neon billboard was posted in the sky saying "Stay Home & Rest". Weird, because it's not like I was stressed or insanely busy or anything and I like to find meaning in events and can't figure out why my body shut me down.
On the bright side, when I woke up this morning my cough was gone & it seems to have turned back into a cold where it all started. I'm POSITIVE this means it's finishing up today and I can put Outside Clothes on again (not that I've minded lazing about on the couch in comfy sweat pants...). Yesterday was one of the first great days of flying and even though I couldn't be in the air I made a deposit in my karma account and picked up some pilots who landed near my house & drove them back to their cars. That seems like a nice way to start of the flying year, doesn't it?
