Snotty Bitch Reporting for Duty


Why is it that as soon as I get started with something that really interests me fate throws a wrench into my path? I blame my current situation on the visit to the Drs office this past week. No good can come of going to a Drs office this time of year. The place is a hotbed of germs and bacteria. I have the first cold I've had in a very, very, long time. In future, I plan to arrange my check-up visits so they don't fall in the first third of the year. I knew as soon as I walked into that place that I was a goner. Last night I apparently snored so loud that my husband had to abandon ship. I will stifle the small chuckle that caused me since he's been doing that to me for years. So un lady-like though. Snoring like a chain saw...cringe. I can't breath through my nose so it was inevitable. Not my most lovable moment I guess. Folks here are making a wide circle around me and leaving me alone in my nest upstairs. Can't blame them but psssst, don't tell anyone, we're all breathing the same air which means I'll be doing Nurse Nancy duty in the coming week. I'm taking my hot green tea with lemon and going back to bed. I tried to do some work in the sewing room yesterday but the head feels like all my batting has somehow wound up in my head. I, quite literally, have batts in my belfry.
I wanted to give a quick shout out to Judy from Northport, who is still hiding from me somewhere in a bunker nearby hoarding her Kaffe fabric. Smart girl.... for now. I'll find her someday and then those Kaffe's won't be safe anymore. By the way Judy, Bumble Beans lives not all that far from us. I almost got together with her last summer. Better luck this year I hope. The woman is brilliant.

Anyway, Hope you're all doing a lot better than me. Talk to you soon.

Enjoy your tea and rest while you're getting better. Those stuffy noses are the worse. Hugs.

Karen said...

A fun read! You have a good sense of humor. Hope you feel better. I haven't had a cold in a long, long time. I figure when I do get one, it will be a doozy.

We had that cold about three weeks ago. I remember waking up with my mouth open, bone dry. Feel better soon.

I liked it better in the old days when the doctor came to visit his patients! No sitting around in a waiting room full of germs. (Now I'm really showing my age!!!)

Rest, keep drinking tea and lemon, and take good care of yourself.

Hope you can shake this cold quickly. Just don't get the coughing affliction that is going around - it is the worst. It has now been almost two months and I am (I think) finally over it. Tea is good. Check Rayna's blog for Miso soup which seems to work as well as chicken.
