everything is relative peeps ... I discovered an issue at the office yesterday and well I was a little irked (pissed off -- at self) ... why do we (I) always seem to direct ire at self -- well, I should, it was my haste that missed the blooper .... 

and then this morning I ran across this blurb  on wastebook (facebook -- the giant waste of time sucker) ... 

it's all in the perspective peeps ....

"Let all that shit go. I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go"

Happy Wednesday -- let the melting begin!

so -- the blooper is getting repaired .. and I'm going to do it with a large grin on my chubby cheeks!

still cold

still cold (and currently snowing) here on Daisy Lane -- I just got home from 8 hours at the office -- my stint there yesterday was disrupted and abbreviated -- let's put it this way -- I'm not taking any more of that damn antibiotic -- the side effects are uglier than ugly -- tummy troubles are never pleasant -- it could have been worse.

Girls Weekend - aka Fire on the Pole Weekend is next weekend.  I'm planning my projects and will start to pack them (and my related "stuff") up this evening.  the Divas are promising less food (really) and more activity this year -- 

so far my project list includes:
1) ripping out the quilting and re-quilting a crib quilt (will use the Bernina) and binding it
2) binding on a quilted crib quilt 
3) finish piecing fall themed turning twenty throw
4) finish piecing Christmas throw 
5) toss together a jelly roll throw (or 2)

time will tell -- I need to work on Saturday (and depending upon the W2s/1099s) and maybe Sunday for a spell ..

day 11 of the new year .... and I've already violated NYResolution #1 ... argh.  So I had a return at Kohls and they were gracious enough to send me refund of my "unused" Kohls cash and a 30% off coupon  (and the greedy/hungry fish that I am -- I took the bait and -- they reeled me in) .... so I ended up with a pair of sweatpants for free -- well --- I paid the shipping --- dang ... I caved for a flipping pair of sweatpants.

and day 8 of the crud might have been the turning point.  Only one slug of cough syrup all day .. 2 advil, the eye drops and the horse pills.  I toughed it out and worked until 8:15 pm. 

lots got done.

instead of whining about the illness ... (which will get a paragraph) ... I'll whine about the weather ...
thats's a funny looking inch of snow ... I bet there is 3 inches out there and it's still happening -- coming down almost vertical with the 40 mph wind gusts -- oh joy.

It was just starting to snow on my inbound commute -- icy patches at our mailbox and on our township road ... but okay when I got off the gravel ... it was a miracle -- the office sidewalk had no ice ... thank you ...

so, the illness paragraph -- went home and had a 3 hour nap yesterday over lunch.  Mrs. H suggested it and I didn't hesitate -- felt pretty darn good -- I just don't have any pep with this crud.  Left the office at 5:30 last night -- laundry, tv and my book -- and coughing !

I'll find a new topic and will be happy tomorrow!

dr appointment #3

oh ya ...

urgent care on sunday
regular doctor on monday
eye dude today....

so it's a sinus infection .... take the prescription

yesterday I was concerned about the side effects (and still am) -- especially the eyes after my summer of ulcer on the cornea .... so

the yucky itchy red sore eyes are all part of the sinus issue ... so another prescription for drops --- for the eyes

really peeps this is getting out of control

really out of control


Monday, January 8, 2018



went to urgent care yesterday -- left with a prescription for the sinus infection ...

woke up this morning with swollen cakey eyes -- yes both of them

not sure if it is a side effect of the prescription   or ... just more of the crud.

but I'm at work and the day promises to be warm -- I can see a peek of sunrise out the window ...
it will be a wonderful day!
