Please Stand By...

While this blogger has technical difficulties. Okay, maybe not technical, but sinusal. Or something like that.

I woke up Friday morning with the WORST sore throat and sinus headache. Normally, I'd jump up and call the doctor and get a sinus cocktail shot the same day. Well, the only problem with that is that Friday happened to be the day that our entire county shut down because a major ice storm was heading our way.

So, I had to wait until Monday. Ugh. Double ugh. But, I finally was able to go get my beloved shot and cough medicine and Z-pack and I'm a happy, although not quite completely healthy, camper.

When I feel like it, I will get to my pics of the beautiful, if disruptive, ice storm. To be so damaging, that stuff is so absolutely gorgeous. I can say that because I didn't have any damage to my trees or house. Other folks around the Memphis area weren't so lucky, having trees fall on their houses, branches fall through roofs, and other very not-beautiful things. I'm sure they wouldn't think the images I have are beautiful, but maybe you will.

Here's an image that makes me smile...and at the time warmed my heart. My big ol' puppy dog knew I wasn't feeling good and allowed me to snuggle with him just a minute...and only a minute. Right after this pic was taken he decided he had enough snuggle time with Momma. Oh, well...I take what I can get.

Okay, I have to go take my antibiotic now. *sssnnniiifff*

This must be the time for that, Heather! I've had a sinus headache for two days and my throat has been scratchy all day. I hope you are feeling better!

Feel better, girlie!! Love the pic of you and the dog. (And I'm still adoring the glasses!!)

Debbie said...

Hope that you feel better soon! Love the pic of you & your pup, nothing like a big, furry dose of unconditional love :) I have two boxers, I can relate.

Glad you're feeling better. Take good care of yourself. And give your puppy a kiss for me.

I hope you are feeling better. The tassels in your Etsy shop are beautiful.
Thanks for visiting our blog. I know wht you mean about Corelle standing up to anything, we inherited that set from my Grandma, and it is at least 15 years old if not more so. I wish I could afford to retire it, but I can't justify it just yet.

Hope you feel better soon! That is not fun.

Poor thing!! Get to feeling better soon. I am just getting over a cold. I had the only 1 nostril functioning disease for quite some time. Get plenty of fluids that have NO caffeine...it is all about hydration. And vitamin C and/or zinc...knock that bug out.

I can always practice my patient counseling with you. :)
