well, if you must ask...

no. i have not taken five pictures this year.
not even one.

i am, however, quite familiar with all the crap that's on daytime tv.

and how dang comfy our recliner is.

and also how snuggly i can be under two quilts.

what? oh. sorry. let me back up a little.

12/31
cough. cough. cough.
no big. it's windy today. really windy. this is likely allergies. especially since my eyes are watering. i still am heading out to dinner.

1/1 - day one
did anyone get the name of that truck? the one that blindsided me? the one that was carrying a load of snot, has left me weak AND in charge of their cargo? because i need to report their company to the BBB. leaving me with all this crap is NOT good business practices. oh well. a little NyQuil tonight and i will be as fresh as a daisy tomorrow.

1/2 - day two - possession
great googly moogly. i have been possessed by a snot demon. NyQuil has no power here. i feel as if i've been mugged by an elephant. i need an exorcism on my sinuses. i need to complete my Last Will and Testament. then i realize i don't have any real possessions to leave. great.

1/3 - day three - the coronation of Queen Snot
i am dying. i hurt. i cough and pee a little. niiice. 45 freaking years old and i'm peeing my pants. not to mention a (cough cough pee) friend sends me a photo of her bbq brisket dinner that she's ready to enjoy. i thought we were friends. i was wrong. i vow that if i survive i will hunt her down. and make her watch me eat a bbq brisket. with grits. and fresh biscuits with apple butter. and yes, bread pudding for dessert.

1/4 - day four - i will survive.
wow.
i feel...almost human.
i guess i will survive this.
i've even decided to get nasal spray..which i hate using. but i'm really tired of not breathing.
and i really hate that my last week of vacation being sick.

can i get a do-over for this week?

Aww, poor you.

And since you can't take pictures. You can look here to see some cool ones (the best of the capital times, a local paper, 2007). Here's the link-a-matic!

Ahh, I hate that you've been feeling bad. I'm glad to hear that you're starting to feel better! Hopefully that coughing and peeing thing leaves ASAP. :)

By the way...where do I RSVP for that bbq dinner?!

I SO know how you feel. I have felt like crap for days and, just when I thought I was getting better, that same truck blindsided me too. Oh but the couch is so soft and warm...

BBQ Brisket..that is So wrong.

I have no appetite, of course, not being able to taste anything does that.

Why is it that I do not eat and will probably gain 2 pounds?

ARGH....

Feel better soon sweetie.

Love and hugs,
Sue

Yeah, the "crud" is definitely going around. But I instantly felt cozier hearing you describe being bundled up in the recliner, if that made you feel any better!
