IT’S BACK! :(

May 28, 2008

Boy did I speak toooo soon! I thought I was getting over this “BUG”  but apparently it wants to hang around some more. Reminds me of the Musinex commercial about the bugs trying to stay in your body! I have been on Musinex for about 2-1/2 weeks now and it has helped some to the point I was better. I don’t know if it is because we were outside all weekend and the pollen took over or what, I just know that it’s back. So I put in a call to my doc and sure enough she wasn’t in. ( I’m not surprised, she is hard to get to see) She is at a medical convention, but she will call the office at noon and maybe? she will call in a prescription for me. Well I have a back up plan, if she doesn’t call in something I’m gonna take my little body to the Urgent care office where my insurance will cover it. We leave tomorrow and I will not go without some HELP!  Pathetic isn’t it? We don’t plan on being sick when we go away, but sure as we go back to work, I’ll be all well! I just bet on that one!!

Oh well we will see! 🙂  😦

VACATION TIME

May 27, 2008

Happy Memorial Day. This is gonna be a busy week, because I have taken a few days off work to recoup, regroup, and just plain do what I wanna do. We went camping for a long weekend to Shad Landing. I haven’t been there since I was a kid. Back then you had to pay to get into the park, but now you can just go in to the river and register. Because we had reservation that were made online it was a quick process. The campsite was great, big, wide and quiet. The ranger told us that all 191 sites were ocupied for the weekend. Oh boy was there some people there. We sat at the dock and just people watched, It was so much fun. We watched a 2year old boy and his father have a battle of wills over him wearing a hat in the sun. Eventually the little boy figured out that in order to fish with the rest of the kids, he’d better just put the hat on (with a shrug of shoulders and allot of muttering!) and join them. He was so funny to watch.

On Thursday we are leaving for Lancaster Pa. Hubby wanted to go to the Green Dragon on Friday. That is a treat since I rarely get off work on Fridays. Thursday I am taking Hubby to Hershey, to the chocolate factory. He has never been there, near there with his field trials but never there. I remember taking my kids there for Hershey Park and the chocolate factory, it was fun. I have several birthdays this month, so somebody is gonna get something from the factory! We love to travel on the back roads around New Holland, Ephrata, etc. and see the farm fields and the Amish working in them. Hubby will never get the farm out of his blood! HA! HA! 🙂

NEVER TOO OLD !

May 18, 2008

I AM CONSTANTLY AMAZED AT THE THINGS YOU CAN DO ON THIS COMPUTER. PLAYING AROUND WITH THE DIFFERENT HEADERS AND PICTURES ON MY BLOG JUST FASCINATES ME!  I JUST CHANGED THE WHOLE BLOG AND PUT OUR PICTURE ON THE HEADER, I THINK I LIKE IT:)  

WHEN I FIRST STARTED TO WANT A COMPUTER I BUGGED MY DAUGHTER ALL ABOUT IT AND SHE PATIENTLY SHOWED ME SOME THINGS AND TOLD ME THAT I COULD DO IT; I KINDA DOUBTED THAT! ONE CHRISTMAS HUBBY SURPRISED ME WITH ONE AND I HAVE FALLEN HEAD OVER HEELS IN “FUN” WITH IT. GRANTED THERE HAVE BEEN MANY, MANY MISTAKES, FUSSING, YELLING”WHERE DID IT GO, I JUST HAD IT HERE!” BUT I HAVE GRADUALLY LEARNED, MOST OF IT BY TRIAL AND ERROR. I ENJOY IT IMMENSELY. I USE IT TO FIND OUT INFORMATION FOR JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, MAKE CAMPING RESERVATIONS, EMAIL AND ENDLESS OTHER THINGS. SOME I’M JUST FINDING OUT HOW!!! 

NOW THERE IS A NEW BLOG DESIGN IN TOWN, AND WHO KNOWS THERE MIGHT BE ANOTHER ONE TOMORROW! HA! HA! 🙂

GETTING WELL

May 14, 2008

I think I’m gonna live, that’s what I thought last night. I’m gonna go to work and jump back into the swing of things. Well……sorta….It’s funny how a virus, cold, pneumonia? works, you feel like death warmed over, then the next day you feel good.; enough that you think you are as good as new. Not quite. Getting up and getting ready was the easy part, the hard part was getting this battle worn body to move! But if you pour enough caffeine in you first thing, the oil(blood) gets moving and you function.  Before hitting the door to work, I stopped and got a capichino to go just for good measure. Oh great, I’m the first one here, gotta open up; look on the book and see that I am the only one holding the shop down until 10am. Great that means doing my laddies and answering the phone (with a definitely low gravely voice)! It’s a good thing I didn’t have to call in sick this morn, the shop would be closed for sure!

Oh well I made it clear until 2pm. by then I knew that no amount of coffee was gonna help this ole body, so I said “Ciao baby” I’m gonna go home!   Boy the recliner sure felt soooo goood that a nap was next to come.

I guess I’ll try again tomorrow and see how long I last then. It sure is hard to kick this one.:(   😦   😦    😦

THANKS ALOT MR BUG

May 10, 2008

I just want to thank the person that so kindly gave me the “BUG”!!! i have soooo enjoyed having your company. You gave me a sore throat and a small cough, but you musta thought that I needed a bigger challenge, so you gave it ALL to ME!!  I just knew that “Hey I can handle this little ole cold, I’M bigger that it!”  NO WAY HOSEA!! Working Wed. wasn’t to bad, Thursday was getting crappy, I found myself counting the minutes down to go home. Finally Friday morning (at 3am. of course) I gave in. Ok, Ok, I’m down for the count! I give up. Oh boy did the bug hit then. I have coughed, blew through a whole box of Kleenex and now working on toilet paper. I’m medicated up to the hilt and miserable. I finally sent hubby away for the day so I can be miserable by myself today. I don’t usually get sick, but when “buggie” decides to hit, he hits me hard. So today I’m watching movies, blowing, on the computer, blowing, sleeping, blowing; until it’s over. Soon I hope!!!!    OOPs  gotta go blow my nose!  See Ya!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM

May 5, 2008

Today is my mom’s birthday, she is a hardy 80 now. She can’t believe that she is “that old”. LOL! Boy time does creep up on ya don’t it? I am so glad that I have my mom and dad because now that I’m older I enjoy them more. Hubby and I take them with us places and enjoy their company. for her present I got her a Vera Bradly pocket book, and I just had to tell her how I “fought for it!” I fell into a sale of 40% off of the bags and went into the melee slinging pocketbooks around  and grabbing for the “golden ring”, as some woman so aptly put it!! I managed to score a bag for her, one for me, and one for a present later. I have the scars to prove the sale!!LOL! LOL! I have to admit I enjoyed every minute of it. So Happy Birthday Mom and I hope you have many many more with us.
