Lilla’s 2nd Birthday

Lilla’s 2nd birthday

Sick and tired of being…well, sick and tired

So, I am posting from the hospital right now. Fortunately, not laid up in some hard little bed with rails like a trapped animal, but from the waiting room. Which, I might point out, is quite appropriately named in this case. I have been here for hours, and, there is no sign of movement anytime soon. Although, there are only a couple of more people in here with me. What seems to be the problem? Not a clue! I think they just like to see how long people wait before they decide all their problems really can be solved with a bottle of aspirin, some alcohol and a band-aid.

My personal problem is a cough, which, I believe has led to a sore throat. Which, has led to sore ears. Actually, I am beginning to believe it is post nasal drip that started the whole matter. I know, that might be a little bit of TMI, but it is the truth in technical terms. I’ve got some serious sinus issues going on and I think the grody stuff in the back of my throat may be the actual root of all evil. My husband has been trying to get me to go to the doctor for days but I have refused as I didn’t want to bring the peanut in to the biggest germ fest in town. Now, they have me sitting here with a surgical mask and 10 month old magazines to pass the time. I’m not kidding, there is an US with Nicole Richie on the cover stating she’s prego. Unless she is again, that is one OLD magazine!

Fortunately I brought along my rusty trusty old laptop and fortunately, they have internet access. Which, is amazing in itself since I live in small town USA. I have no idea how secure this internet, but fortunately I do absolutely no banking or business on here so there are no secrets out. Besides getting in to my blah blah blogging spot. OK, so if suddenly you all have spam from me that states YOU CAN HAVE AN ERECTION FOR LONGER THAN ANY PERSON EVER SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO, you know what happened. This, is why I have finally been able to make it over to visiting so many of your sites. Just thank the HC Hospital!

Now, my husband has a stomach flu and the peanut is the only non-sicky in the house. God love antibiotics for that! I just wish it would warm up so we could open the doors and get out the bugs! Unfortunately, it’s like 3 degrees out there. It’s supposed to get up in the 30’s this week. Woo hoo, clearly, spring is on it’s way. LOL

Oh, and here’s your funny for the day. We were sitting down to dinner and Michael said to the peanut, “Do you want to come and sit over here?” Here answer? “No way!”

That’s good stuff!

Dr., Dr. Give me the news…

Sickies: Does it seem to you like everyone you know, plus their mother’s brother’s fifth cousin is sick? Me too! And that includes us. The whole past week the peanut and I were nearly immobile just trying to make it through the day due to sickness. On her birthday we took her to the petri dish that is the Children’s Musuem and we have been ill ever since. Monday night we had to take her to the ER because she was so sick. Seven hours, 3 x-rays, 3 swabs, 4 nurses, 1 doctor and, I’m sure, thousands of dollars, later, we found out she has pneumonia. Poor little thing, she was just struggling so bad. Fortunately, we caught it early and she’s been on antibiotics all week, which really seem to be working, so she’s on the mend. Unfortunately, the antibiotics are hard on your digestive system so her little tooshky is on fire right now. Only four more days and it will be done though.

The plan: I got off my Richard Simmons work out kick in the meantime and gained several pounds back. Darnit! This morning I got up though intent on getting back on the kick and I did make it through three songs. Hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? 🙂

Funnies: So yesterday I’m putting the peanut in the car to go to church and she looks up at me with the sweetest smile and says, “Shopping?” Oh my, what have I done to my daughter? LOL I then told her, “No, we are going to church to see our friends.” She got so excited she threw her waffle and shouted, “FRIENDS!!” Apparently I’m depriving my child of friends. Her absolute favorite thing to do right now though is go through my purse, pull out my makeup brush holder and start ‘putting on’ make up. She gets so excited to say, “Makeup.” I’m so not kidding. Is she all girl or what?

So that’s about the jist of what’s been happening around this joint. What’s been happening at yours?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
