Okay let's get with it, times a wasting here.............

Ya know, I'm tired of being sick. I'm tired of being tired. Hell I'm tired of hearing me talk about being tired.....but alas and alack....that's the way it is. For some unknown reason to me, my immune system has just stuck out it's tongue and said AWHHHHHH for any an all little germy things that float by. I'm tempted to start gargling with anti-bacterial hand sanitizer.

I mean it's 10 days past the starting gun and I'm still sitting here waiting for my legs to listen to my brain, which is in neutral. I guess. I was on meds until Thurs. last and as soon as I quit taking the silly, foul tasting things....yep, achoo, ick and sniff, blow came back. The kids haven't even been in school long enough to bring any fresh germies in. WTH. It's not like I've been anywhere. It's not like I went out and licked the handle on the cart at Walmart to see if I could come down with some dreaded something. I've been minding my own business taking pictures of cute little witches, toys, destash trash and making valentines.

That must be it...it's the Valentines that did this. Yeah, thinking happy thoughts and doing goodie things is so contrary to my evil nature that I made myself sick. Nah, I'm not swallowing that either, with my tea and lemon and honey.

Kid update: GK fell down, went boom, spent some time in the ER and got another x-ray on the other wrist this time. Bad sprain (wrist imobilizer, sling), she was very disappointed that there was no casting involved. Yeah she would have loved it about hour 3. Ry went for some evaluations and came home raving about his new good friend the chubby lady who looks like Oma who let him play with dinosaurs. I swear he is a trip to Disneyland every day.

Adult update: same old (%^$ for both Shelley and Joe. Poor workers of the world. But at least their working. Me, I'm gonna make a fortune on the cure for the common bitch and moan woman over 60.

Good things right around the corner, just another day in paradise my dears.


  1. Oh I so totally get this. My immune system has gone the wayside too apparently since I am no longer around hoards of people and haven't built it up to ward off those nasties. The worse thing is that my husband who is still out in the world, brings those wonderful bugs home with him, and I'm the one who gets sick - not him!!! I'm trying to remember to take my multi-vitamin everyday but I really feel like I need to do something else to boost things. Just don't know what.

    Everyday the last week and a half I've had horrible headaches and ringing in my ears too - have NO idea what is up with that but it's making me crazy. If it ain't one thing...

  2. Oh I wish you were feeling better. I so understand tired of being sick and tired of being tired. I am hoping things will improve rapidly for you. I keep telling myself as soon as Spring comes energy will be back. hugs to you, your in my prayers. take care.

  3. I am glad GK is going to be okay [whew] and that Rhylie had a good time today. I can imagine the smiles. :)

    I hope YOU are feeling better soon. Give me a shout if you need a giggle. You know where I am. :)

  4. Ugh - hope the good health fairy shows up at your house soon!

  5. Bronchitis is no joke, sometimes is takes up to 6 weeks to be done with it. Hope you're feeling better soon. Lots of steam and hot tea with lemon and honey.

  6. Oh....hope you start feeling better soon Linda, it sucks to be sick. Poor GK, must be painful for her and Ry is Ry - I think he is gonna be okay!

  7. No fun being sick. I don't know what it is about this season but seems like everyone is sick with something & it last forever! We all just got over colds etc. I'm just hoping we can be healthy a while more before the girls bring another germ home! Get better soon!

  8. I haven't been sick in a while which is good cause I hate to be sick. I guess I have a killer immune system since hubby was sick and I didn't get it. hope you are better soon.

  9. Ay, mi amigita locita!! So sorry things aren't coming up peachy for the new year thus far. I've had seasons like that, ie. last summer...'member?? oey vey, what a horrible experience!!

    Hang in there and know you are loved, even though your bod is at war, your brain is still in tip-top shape...just read your own blogs!! LOL

    Loves ya, muchacha,

  10. Ugh, I did sick November and December, very much over it now! I do find myself edging away from germy sneezy colleagues though (which is quite difficult when you sit next to a wall and they drop by your desk can I tell you!)

    Hope you turn the corner soon (((((HUGS)))))

  11. I hope you will be feeling better soon. I have noticed that since I have aged, I don't bounce back from illnesses as quickly as I did when I was young(er)...saying a prayer for you!

  12. You need to have some strong tea and brandy, and something so spicy you can barely eat it. Get that flu drunk and burn it up!

    I hope you feel better soon!

    Hugs, Kelly

  13. Ick to sick. Glad the kiddos are both okay, hope you feel up to your ornery old Oma Bear self soon.

  14. Being sick DOES suck the big one! I'm so sorry you're not feeling better. Have you been to an acupuncturist? I swear that's one of the few ways that I've managed not to come down with some horrible flu. 2011 is giving you a heck of a challenge so far, isn't it? Well, maybe now you'll be healthy for the rest of the year. Btw, I received your package yesterday and as tempted as I am to open all the pretty gifts, I'll wait until the "official" day, Thanks Linda and sending you blessings of quick healing.
