Survived 4 days with the girls and 6 days with the MILs dogs and now, of all times, I'm sick. I've never suffered with seasonal allergies and if this is what it's like... I feel sorry for anyone that does.
The dogs got picked up Tuesday morning and I was looking forward to being able to get some rest, without one of them up my butt. (the dogs, not the girls) We had a terrific weekend, even if they don't keep the same hours I do. Went to the playground next door, on Saturday. The weather was beautiful and the dogs didn't bite anyone, including the boy that insisted on petting them, even after I told him they weren't too friendly. Reminded me of the many times I've heard a parent say... "My kid won't eat that"... then they do and totally make a liar out of you! I'm sure the kid on the playground thought I was a liar. I kinda felt like choking the dogs, for not biting him.
Hubby worked nights, from Friday evening until Tuesday morning. On Monday morning, he started complaining his throat was sore and feeling swollen and irritated. Having had an exposure to noxious chemicals at work, I thought it was just the aftereffects. Within a few hours, my throat was irritated and driving me crazy. I can't tell you how much illness I've been exposed to over the past year, without getting sick. Not sure if the changing winds blew something in, or what, but I have coughed so much, my ribs are killing me. I feel like I've been drug through a knothole, backwards! Every time I cough, I was trying to hold my ribs, to keep them from breaking. Ended up binding them, so I didn't have to keep trying to hold them. Don't laugh, it has helped.
Guess I should be thankful this didn't come on while the kids were here. I'll be even more thankful when I feel better and can play catch up on the rest I didn't get, while dog and kidsitting.
Since my last post, I received two awards. Same award, from two different people. Both are fantastic!
Momma Fargo, the fantastically funny female cop, that refers to herself as the popo. If you don't already know her, stop in and introduce yourself. If you go and get yourself arrested... DO NOT IMPLICATE ME! Whatever you did, I wasn't involved. Perhaps she will give you a ride in her new cruiser, if you ask nicely... or break the law. Do not mess up the seats, please.
Veteran Kindergarten Teacher will tell you amazing stories of her experience with kids and teaching for a whopping 34 years. Just be sure you don't start talking about snakes, or you might send her into orbit. And no, you may not borrow her terrarium for the summer, so don't ask.
Please, if you haven't met these two ladies, stop in and say hello.
Since I'm feeling like death warmed over, I'm doing good to finally thank these two wonderful blog buddies. I'm not going to be passing these on, at least not yet. Maybe later, when I'm feeling better and have a better grasp of this new WHITE beast of a laptop, with NO MOUSE! Right now I'll just settle for getting out a post, period.
To the new followers that I haven't located, thanks for following. Stop in and leave a comment, so I can find you. To the new visitors that left comments, thank you for stopping in. Comments on any posts are wonderful and I would especially like to thank everyone that commented on the post about my Mom. I'm sure she smiled at each one.
