It was taking so long to get over the stupid thing that I was beginning to think that sleeping propped in a sitting position sucking on cough drops and taking layers of skin off my nose every 3.5 seconds was going to be my new reality. Thankfully, despite the ever so gracious offer of my bestest friend in the whole wide world to shoot me and put me out of my misery, I am proud to say that I finally feel a teensy little bit like an actual human and a lot less like a grub in a shit pile (not to mention looking like one too - it got ugly around these parts I'm tellin' ya!).
Now, I might have mentioned somewhere along the way that I have found it in this small, cynical, and snark-tastic heart of mine to share this wonderful experience with the husband him. I mean really, what is sharing the rest of your life with your soul mate if not sharing some of the shit along the way! =) I figure the only
The husband him is experiencing the lavish throes of what I went through, and now I'm feeling kind of bad for the poor guy. He's coughed so much at this point he sounds like a gaggle pod of horned poisonous toads have taken up residence in his throat. He's sucked down so much hot tea with honey (how anyone can choke down that crap poses a constant and egregious struggle of reason in my taste buds) to drown out a small nation. Last night was the first night he was able to get some sleep without coughing up 1/2 a lung (the slacker - I was working on 1 1/2 lungs when I had it), and, instead, he ends up with heartburn that could incinerate a herd of mastodons.
Needless to say there is, literally, no rest for the weary around these parts, and I haven't seen the basement but once since the contractors left. No, the camera wasn't in tow that time, I was wanting to make some progress. Progress stilted by coughing and hacking, and enough mouse shit in one of the closets to make me want to curl in a ball and suck my thumb....I - HATE - MOUSE - SHIT! It runs a close 2nd to spiders which I think is about the only thing that I hate more. Spiders - good food for birds and mice. Mice - excellent food for snakes. Other than that....neither has a reason for existence in my world. *shudder*
Anywho - now that I am starting to feel like, what I can only assume is, a normal person....I will hopefully be able to get caught up on some things around these parts.
Well, that's the update, from the lower Midwestern US of A, where the level of intolerable, unbearable, snot freezing cold clearly proves that the theory of global warming is a huge steaming pile of horse shit! =)

PS....thank you to all my lovely stalkers who regularly checked up on me and wished me a speedy recovery. I appreciate it.....definitely more now that I am pretty well done with it, but I appreciated it then too! =) xoxo
