Happy Day!

Happy Anniversary Hubby! Whew, that was a quick six years!

Please...No More

I don't think I can take another sinus infection. This has been going on since a week before Christmas and just won't stop. To add insult to injury, both Hubby and Big Boy are are dealing with this too. I don't know how to stop this viscous cycle and it's really starting to depress me.

Obviously getting sick is just a part of life, right? I would be shocked if we didn't pass something around during the winter but this year is just a mess. It started a week before Christmas and has never really gone away. Hubby had an awful case of strep which he then shared with all of us. Fine. We all survived and went about our business. Then came the sinus infections.... Not only do they seem to last for ages but the pain that comes with it is like nothing I have ever felt.

Three weeks ago, I actually wished I could drill a hole in my right temple just to relieve the sinus pressure. It felt like someone had my head in vice-grips and was pushing the palm of their hand into my cheek bone as hard as they could. Nice, huh? Finally, after a week or so the pain let up and I was finally feeling better. In the past twenty-four hours, all three of us have gone completely down hill.

I've come to the conclusion that I can drink orange juice and Airborne all day and it's not going to help one bit once this gets you. Looks like another trip to the doctor Monday. Super.

I'm So Ashamed

To admit that I'm curled up in my big favorite cozy chair, laughing my butt off watching Jersey Shore.  I'll admit that at first I was completely outraged over this train wreck but seriously, how can anyone think this hot mess express is real?

Sadly, I know it paints the shore in a negative light but anyone who knows the area knows damn well this IS NOT what the Jersey shore is all about.  You'll never see these morons down on Island Beach or having a few beers at BRT because they don't know what being a true shore local is all about which is why they are pure comic relief. 

So there you have it, this is one of the best worst shows on television right now.  *snickers*

No Really, I Love Being Sick

I love it.  I can't get enough of being sick with this plaque which has been vacationing in my house for over a month now.  What I'm even more excited about, is which one of us is going to get it back now.    I'm thinking Big Boy is finally starting to feel better so my money is on him.   Hell, sleep is overrated anyway, right?

All kidding aside, I can't take much more of this.  Hubby got sick just after thanks giving and ended up with raging strep throat and bronchitis.  He was down for the count for over a week but once he was on the mend, all seemed well and it looked like BB and myself would dodge a bullet. 


About a week later, BB begins to show signs of being sick but nothing to panic over.  I come down with an awful case of strep throat and am just a mess.  I had no voice what so ever and had honestly, never felt throat so bad in all my life.  While this is going on, BB's pediatrician is being jerky about his meds but we finally get him on an antibiotic and go about our business.   Unfortuantly, neither one of us ever completely mend from whatever this was and poor Hubby has a relapse right on Christmas and ends up sicker than before.   He bounces back and we spend NYE all lying on the sofa trying to get BB's 104.5 fever down so we don't have to spend the New Year in the ER....

Jealous yet?  I thought you might be.  So here we are just one week into the new year and guess who's having an awful relapse of the plague that wouldn't go away?  Anyone?     That's right...ME!  I hate to bellyache but enough already.   My throat is a mess and combine that with a dry cough and this feeling like someone is sitting on my chest and well, I'm not very happy.   Anyway, all I can do is rest (fat chance) and hope this passes.

What Happened?

Seriously, where the hell did Christmas go?  I feel like we were just leaving the house to head out and pick up a tree and now it's already out in the front yard waiting to become wood chips.  As quick as it comes, it's gone.  I find it bizarre the radio is stuffing Christmas down out throats starting on November 1st, yet at 12:01am on December 26th, every piece of holiday music in the building is locked up tight. 

It's rather sad when you think about it.  All of the money, time and energy we put into to Christmas and it's over in a blink of an eye.  When I was younger, I remember the entire week between Christmas and the New Year being such a great week.  There were still Christmas shows on and you could still hear holiday music on the radio.  What happened?   Sadly, this depresses me.   I cringe when it's time to take down the tree and tuck everything away for another year but to have television and radio completely flip the "holiday off" switch just makes it even worse.

I think everyone would enjoy the holidays a whole heck of a lot more if they took the time to celebrate and enjoy them instead of rushing to get them over with.  Shame, actually.
