Snow Day & Bronchitis


Today was a snow day for Skip...no work for him...HOORAY ~ I had him home! We got at least 5 or 6 inches of snow & some freezing rain is due in. As much as I dislike winter, the cold, the mess, etc, I must admit that it's awfully pretty out there ~ a virtual winter wonderland. I snapped the picture above really quickly on my cell phone from the opposite end of the carport from where I park (that's the rear bumper of my 11 year old "soccer mom" minivan down there). Skip asked for at least 1 decent snow this winter...so now you've got it, honey!


And why is it a snow day only for Skip & not for me, too? Well....if I didn't have a raging case of stupid bronchitis, then it would've been a snow day for me, too....but.....well.....I was staying home anyway. I saw my doctor yesterday & he said that if I had waited much longer, he would've been sending me home with walking pneumonia. I did get sent home, however, with a prescription for Leviquin...some heavy duty (750 mg) antibiotics & the size of horse pills. I must say that I'm very good at taking pills, but these I nearly have to choke down. Thankfully, I only have to take them once a day. Then I got the curse yesterday on top of it all. Shoot me now & put me out of my misery. I'm hoping that by this time next week I'll be feeling like a new woman!


Thank you so much for the couple of ideas so far with the garbage shed. I still haven't done anything yet, but I'll let you know what I end up doing. As for the Grand Central Terminal prank, yes, Phinney, it is by a group called "Improv Everywhere," & yes, Becky, they were the ones who had about 100 men take off their shirts at a NYC Abercrombie & Fitch. Check out their link in my sidebar for more videos, etc. I got on their mailing lists...I'd love to be involved in something (as long as I don't have to take MY shirt off & scare everyone to death!).

I am SO SORRY you're sick!! I think you may have been neglecting yourself a bit lately, too much of that terrible thing called 'work', blech! :( I hope you take all of your medicine like a good girl and feel all better SOON!

SPRING is on the way, it just has to be. *Says the girl who didn't even clean off her car or shovel one damn flake since we got 7 inches of white crap dumped on us yesterday...

Love you!!

Oh hunny...I hope you feel better soon. I'm right there with ya. I was just getting over the creeping crud (upper resp infection) when I fell in the drive way. I relapsed, of course. Coughing with bruised ribs...yikes. THEN I got the curse too. I'm a mess! Thank god for those pain killers. The codeine suppresses the coughing. lol
