SIDE NOTE: I’m writing this in moments when I can breathe, my head isn’t pounding and I’m somewhat coherent and upright.

I’ve been a lit’l under the weather and I’m super curious to know how much snot the human head can produce because mine seems to refill itself every five minutes. Gross but not kidding.

Of course, I blame my illness on some idiot woman who coughed and sneezed her way thru the grocery store WITHOUT COVERING HER MOUTH  while her 3 squalling kids blew snot bubbles in her cart.

I went to the dr. the other day and sat in a room surrounded by more coughing, sneezing NON-COVERING people and found out it’s just a “bug” that’s going around.
I hate being sick and pretty soon I know I’m going to be one of those weirdos out there walking around in a mask because some dumbass doesn’t know how to cover their fucking mouth and wash their hands!
leaves barThe doc gave me the standard, plenty of fluids and rest speech for “the bug” and then prescribed two other meds not related to “the bug.” I am so attempting to avoid one of those weekly pill holder things and I’m a little disappointed that my dr. is not helping me with this goal. In her defense, she may be focused on other goals for me so I’ll give her a pass.
For the moment.

Such a great guy. I just love him so much and am super proud of the young man he has become.
Here’s a pic of him from earlier this summer (on the right) when he and his fiance’ went on a scavenger hunt all thru Boise to meet one of his favorite actors, Aaron Paul from ‘Breaking Bad.’
Happy Birthday “T-Bone.”  #GreatSmile  #NoBraces
leaves barI’ve been trying to catch up on all of your blog posts which is a huge plus for me because it keeps me upright and I don’t get swallowed whole by my marshmallow head. The downside to this is of course. I have marshmallow head and medicine head so I tend to nod off or find myself rereading simple words like “the” and “what.” I appreciate your patience as I make my rounds.leaves barI finally finished ALL seasons of CSI. So disappointing. So many story lines left undone. I suppose they do that so they can do reunion shows or whatever but if there aren’t going to be any of those. The ending of CSI just blows.

I’m currently catching up on ‘Cedar Cove’ and barely making it thru because of the atrocious acting of one of the lead characters but hopefully, his leading lady will fall in love with someone else and he’ll be gone. I don’t mind horrible actors in minor roles but if you’re the lead guy you should be able to act. – Just my opinion.
leaves barThey’re redoing our parking lot and parking stalls and holy hell! The never-ending sound of their rigs backing up, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP makes my head want to explode. They start at 8am and finish at 5pm. THEN, once they’re done repaving, they’ll be seal coating. Ugh. The smells, the sounds, AND having to park all the way on the other side out at the main road. I’m sure I wouldn’t care quite so much if I wasn’t a bitchy sick person.

I have a few crafty things I’m working on but I’m too wiped out to take pics at the moment, so, another day then.

I hope all of you remain healthy and that you catch none of the “bugs” that may be going around in your area. Michigan is super cool. One of their news channels just posted a list of “bugs” going around out there. I wish Idaho would do the same. It’d be nice to have a heads up on this crap.
Be well my friends!
If anybody needs me I’ll be following Mimi’s quote for the day.leaves barleaves barfeather

    Sorry to hear you are sick. I’m battling what I thought was food poisoning but my intestines are not giving me a break. I feel like crap and I’m cranky as hell. I’m surprised that the doc office didn’t ask people to wear masks. They do around here but people still cough and sneeze w/o wearing the masks. Which is particularly annoying when I’m just there for a script refill and I’m not even sick.

      Oh no. I hope you’re feeling better soon Joanne! I’ve had food poisoning and it’s no fun at all. I felt like I was being sawed in half my stomach hurt so bad! – No mask requirements here. I wish there were. I’m sure I’ll recoup eventually. Just seems like you have one good day and then two more come along and knock you on your ass. – You feel better soon.

    I’m sorry you’re sick. I kind of figured that was in your future after your trip to the store. Bless her heart for spreading the love. Clod. The world is getting fuller and fuller with clods.

    Get well soon. Your son is handsome.

    Have a non-snot filled day. ☺

    Sorry that bug caught up to you. Many other people make me sick in more ways than one.
    So, all CSI has been watched. I’m currently watching Firefly. (Before he did Castle) My son sent it to me. Speaking of sons, yours is a very good looking guy!
    I hope you’re well soon and the marshmallow head goes away. Take good care of yourself!

    The ad slogan over here a few years ago was ‘catch it, Bin it, Kill it.’ Obviously no one listened because it’s more like ‘Catch it, Spread that bug bitch around like it’s butter, Infect everyone like you’re the carrier of the new plague.’

    Get well soon lovely. xx

    Poor sicky sick you!!! ❤
    Rude sneezing and coughing people drive me MAD!!!!

    Construction is such a shit thing to live in.
    Our apartment block was in construction all of last year doing some rehab stuff daily. I thought it would never end.
    We had about 6 months of normal then…
    this June the parking lot across from our building was dug up to do some major water and sewer main work which will go through December.
    They are pile driving metal into the earth, sweet baby Buddha the sonic booms and screeching noise is enough to make one loss their shit…. and the furniture your sitting on shakes and the equipment beeping and then last week some crazy sludge pumping happened.
    Last week the air was crisp with the scent of turd.
    Dick and throat punches all around!!!
    I have a whole new level of empathy for people living in the proximity of heavy construction….. and this is why I haul my ass out to the forest on the daily.
    Hope your on the mend my friend! XOX

      Thank you. I’m feeling a bit better. Now I’m just whining because I’m not a 100%. – UGGGHHHH CONSTRUCTION!!!! – Remember Michigan??? Construction season that turned into ALL YEAR! – Dick and throat punches all around is right! Instead of greeters stores should have dick and throat punchers for every fucking person coughing up a lung heading into the store!

    Oh no! It’s too early for bugs! Your poor thing – get some Citricidal and gargle with it (not sure of you can get it in US but if you can, get some!) I swear by it – I am controlling and hopefully gradually eradicating a long term recurring dental infection with it after antibiotics failed. I gargle with it at the first sign of sore throats or colds and it seems to knock them out for me.

    Your son is handsome and gorgeous! (And I mean that in a motherly way! 😀). Get well soon!


  7. Joe Ormerod says:

    Aw Darlin’, so sorry you are still feeling under the weather…
    It just sucks being sick, even more so when it’s NOT winter!!! Hope you feel better soon so you can get back to your usual sunshiny self. Big hugs from you online hubs!!!
