Crud & Other Things

Hi Everyone!

I think I've got that creeping crud once again that just keeps spreading through my office.  It's comes on so fast.  I was super tired at work yesterday, which is pretty unusual for me, had a headache when I got home.  Now, I'm hacking, congested and "barfy".   Great!   I'm thinking this is illness #4 since Sept.  So much for the flu shot.....

I was running, literally, for my bus because I catch it across the street from my building and I have about a 3 min. time frame and my cell phone rang....sheesh.  I knew it had to be one of my kids.  It was Megan.  I hesitate to talk of Megan's crises on here because she is super sensitive at age 19 to what I say.  Suffice it to say that her boyfriend needs a "break."  Of course, Mama's first instinct was I need to "break" him....lol.  But seriously, it's part of life but I can't stand when my girls get their hearts broken.  And, Lord, finals are coming up.  The child needs that scholarship.  Why is it that the boys need these "breaks" around Christmas and Valentines Day?  Hmmmm......

Another blurp in my life....I think I'm going to kill this computer.  Or maybe it's just AOL.  I keep getting little messages that all this Microsoft crap isn't working right.  I had an error last night that I was supposed to forward to Microsoft.  It restarted my computer and said I had to sign on to AOL to send it.  Of course, when I signed on, the message was gone.

Blurp #2....my second car is in the shop.  Needs rear brakes and rotors and the muffler is falling off.  Actually, if I start it up and leave it running, I could asphyxiate my neighborhood.  And, of course, it's a dual exhaust that needs replaced to the catalytic converter.  But it's the original muffler...133,000 miles on it so who is complaining...Me.  Merry Christmas!

Blurp #3....my Christmas tree for the livingroom looks like crap.  It's dusty and those silly artifical branches just can't be bent anymore to even look half decent.  Tree shopping?  LOL...a little Alke-Seltzer Plus and off I'm going.

 

Blurp #4..........  Yep....snow again in western Pa.  Probably not until Thursday morning but this weather is too weird.  6 inches of snow...65 degrees again for two days....now it's cold and going to snow again.

Blurp #5....These ads above are really starting to annoy me for some reason. 

Blurp #6....I love all of you.  Your comments make my day and give me strength.  I thank the Lord every day that I started this journal.  He knows all and leads me to a place of sanity.  And, yeah, lol...I'm using the word Blurp instead of what I'm thinking in my head.  Lord, forgive me for my thoughts coz You can read my mind.  I'm calling it temporary insanity due to feeling like crap from the crud........

 

                       Love this little sign.  Thanks for visiting and your comments.  You all are definitely leaving footprints on my heart.  chris

This entry put a big grin on my face, because it sounds so much like my life.  At least I know I'm not alone.  : )  GBU, Shelly
P.S.  I'm glad we are friends too, even if we are temporarily insane!

These things always happen in large groups. Never for some reason can they come on one at a time.  I have a little story Im going to write in my journal and I want you to have your daughter read it!  It will definatley help with the whole "break" situation...

Boy oh boy....when it rains it pours! Or shall I say, when it snows it blizzards?? What is Megan doing calling you today - it`s not even Friday yet! Nothing harder than watching our children go through these things. I hope you feel better. Get some rest and deal with things one at a time. Love ya....
