Mash Up

Hello everyone!  Gosh it seems like ages since I’ve posted, maybe to you, too.  I’m sorry about that, but I really felt lousy with whatever it was that I had – mostly a sinus infection, but there was some serious fatigue in the mix, too.  Yuck.  If you look at the previous post, that’s about how I looked 90% of the time, too, wearing sweats and assorted hats to keep warm, spending copious amounts of time in front of the television, cats on my lap, going through boxes of tissue.  A real party.

A funny and slightly gross story to go with this.  The hubster, who is quite used to me being full of verve at all hours of the day, became quite concerned after so many days of couch potato Colleen that he suggested I have my thyroid checked.  Then, when he happened to be home for one of my uber disgusting nose blowing extravaganzas, he said, “Wow, you really are sick, after all.”  I laughed and said, “That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you!”  Bless his heart, he replied, “I’m a visual learner!”  We had a good chuckle!

This reminds me, have you seen the 30 Rock where Liz and Jack go to Stone Mountain, Georgia?  Liz orders a special “chuckle” sandwich and gets very ill.  Jack tries to console her by gently brushing a broom across her back while she vomits.  I just about wet my pants with laughter watching that (perhaps this is saying too much about me, but hey, I didn’t actually write it and put it on TV, so there).  It’s the gosh I’d like to be sympathetic, but you are grossing me out, so I’ll use this broom to keep my distance but give you a little TLC at the same time.  Been there, but never thought of the broom, thanks 30 Rock!

As you can tell, if you’ve bravely continued this far into the mire, I have absolutely nothing of substance to say.  I guess I am not entirely well,  but I did make that guacamole last night, and it was delish.  Anyway, it is good to be mostly back.  Hope you are well!

    Isn’t 30 Rock the BEST! Yes, I’ve seen that episode and we (me and the hubster) laughed our asses off. We quote the show regularly. Strangely enough we also suffer from sinus infections. I started neti potting and it’s helped me. Enjoy your time on the couch, it won’t be tolerated forever.

    Sorry to hear you were so under the weather, STILL. It seems like everyone I have talked to who has been sick this winter has had stuff that lingers on for weeks not wanting to let go. Some strange strain of sorts. But, nothing can beat a great bowl of guacamole to cure what ails ya. Hope it helped and you are better today.

    Love you muchly……….
