My face while riding in the car during a white-out blizzard!
It's really me. I'm still alive. It's been a long journey of coughing, aching and nose blowing that I hope and pray is finally getting behind me. I'm almost embarrassed to admit how tired I am from being sick. Like, exhausted tired! Being sick is harsh on the body and sucks every bit of energy out of you. For the last few weeks, I've probably gotten dressed a handful of times and that's it. The world probably thanks me for staying in my hole…..
But, I am ready to live again! I want to join the world and do normal things. Not that life didn't continue to plug along while I was deep in the trenches of Flumaggedon 2015, just I want to be a normal and active participant in real living like everyone else. Minus the constant coughing!
While I was down, lots happened:
I traveled with hubby to Grand Rapids, Michigan. So what that I hung out in the hotel in my pj's! I was there, we were together and of course, Michigan hit record temps of freezing and the snow was blizzardly dangerous! Being sick through the adventure was just icing on the cake. My life is so glamorous! No, you can't be me!
I think my HOA is out to get me! No, I'm not being dramatic! Well, maybe a little. What else could I think is happening when I receive 2 "courtesy" letters and a visit from a police officer explaining that my HOA lady called him to tow one of our LICENSED and INSURED cars? Sounds a bit like harrassment, huh? I'm trying to play it cool, honestly. But my mama bear is really wanting to fight back!
You can't win when you're fighting THE MAN! Everybody knows that, right?
Snow. Lots of snow. Oh and it was accompanied by lots of very cold temps.
The long awaited flooring finally came in from Home Depot. Hubby spent most of last night cutting the boxes open to get to the actual boxes of flooring. Who in the world wraps a box with cardboard and tapes up every inch of it? It was comical! I almost thought the man trying to break into the boxes was going to lose his cool! Okay, he did…..a little!
My fancy pants ring finally came in from being repaired after weeks of living without it. While I was in Washington, I noticed a loose diamond and it had to be sent away
forever to be made new again! Sadly, they DID NOT call me when it came back in like the clerk assured me when I dropped it off. I'm just grateful that it was there yesterday when I went in (by chance to check). No hard feelings lady! Thank you for my ring!
I purchased the world's scratchiest sheets and even slept on them one night before ripping them off and declaring in my best Scarlett O'Hara voice, "AS GOD AS MY WITNESS……." I will be taking those evil white straw imposters back! Sheets are supposed to be a place to dream on not feel like you're being tortured all night!
I cried my eyes out over the most incredible (it's rated R) movie! By chance, I was lying miserably on the couch when it came on. I decided to watch a few minutes just to see what it was all about and before 15 minutes went by….I knew that I had just discovered something incredible. It is now one of my favorite movies. I loved it that much! PS- my hubby was no stronger than I was, big tears! The movie? About Time
I caught my oven on fire baking a lasagna. Okay, it wasn't my fault that the element decided to flame up and burn out. However, it was a little scary for a second. All is well, Superhubby ordered a new part and it will be working again soon. Rats! I was a little excited thinking about going out for a great Japanese dinner!
My other favorite favorite show came back on! THE VOICE!!! I missed the first part on Monday but while watching it on Tuesday night, I realized the whole time I watch this show — I SMILE!! Like, huge cheek hurting smile! I love every single detail!
I've been reading the book The Women of Duck Commander and I love it! These women are amazing! They each have incredible testimonies and in the book talk very openly about their lives as Robertson women. Love it! Don't want it to end!
That's enough to assure you I've been living while I thought I was dying, right? All is well. If I don't get moving and hit the grocery store with some gusto in the next few minutes….I may miss my chance as MORE SNOW is on its way and I hate driving in scary weather.
See the roads? Yea, me either. This is why I'm making the face up top! I've been on 3 CAN'T SEE THE ROAD trips in the last 10 days!
Hope you've had a great week and thanks for not writing me off forever while I was out sick!
