Picking Up My Bow

On Saturday before Memorial Day we went to a Hot Air Balloon Ralley in Simpsonville, SC.

I had to work on Memorial Day, while everyone else, including The Captain and Boo, was partying, boating, cooking out or just plain being lazy.

Not fair!

On the way home I had to stop and get fuel for my truck, feed for the horses (even they were closed), and stop at Walmartz for groceries and such. My day was shot before it started.

And then…

I guess at my stop off at Walmartz, I picked up a bug from one of those buggies.

The next day, I was sick. I left work early, came home and went to bed.

This was where I stayed for 3 days…

This is what I stared at for 3 days…


And this…

The view from the back side of my eyelids.

I stared at the eyelids more than anything.

I could have been enjoying my favorite magazines…

Or a new book…

Instead, I stared at the back side of my eyelids and felt like I soon would be pushing up daisies.

This was my diet for 3 days…


And the waste basket beside my bed is full.


Yeah, I recycle the plastic grocery bags.

But I’m on my way to recovery. Not fit as a fiddle yet, but I’m picking up my bow!

It’s a good thing, cause my waste basket runneth over.

It’s a good thing The Captain is here to take care of the kid, the horses, the house and all that goes with.

Including me! Not a baby when I’m sick, but I did relish in the tender loving care!

I like this view of the daisies much better!!!!

  1. Very neat post! Love the black shot of your eyelids-you are so clever. Mostly I’m glad you are feeling better-and glad I can’t catch it through the Internet!

    Believe it or not-Granny thinks you can catch computer viruses. We tried to explain it but she just refuses to get it!

  2. Hope you are feeling better. I also liked the post of the eyelids. That was really neat. I have tried to get in the habit of when I go into bilos & they have the wipes for the carts to do just that but with my memory……………………..

  3. I think you had the exact same thing I did. I got a shot to keep me going, because I had some training I had to attend. By Friday, I crashed and burned, but had to babysit until Monday anyway.

    I don’t know where I got mine, but you have my sympathies. It was awful.
