Dibs and Dabs

Thankfully I have managed to survice the stomach virus from Hell. Rarely has a shower felt so good. The back is still stiff from all of the rack time, but I can take a Tylenol for the aches and pains , the body gets/demands what the body needs. SU was very sweet about helping police the joint and other than that , not hovering over me. He knows that I cannot abide that in any way and did the bare minimum of checking up on me. Right now he is making Jalapeno chiggin, which mentally sounds just yummy, the stomach is going " Oh hell no." I'll let him enjoy and if I need to eat , there is always scrambled eggies . I am one of those to my SU's ever lasting lament who must be forced to eat when I am sick ....I just won't do it .

Other than that, it's been a very peaceful day, it is getting easier in a lot of ways and I guess that is the way that we get through things . Do I miss him, oh more than I can say. Did I fall apart ? No, not even a little bit. This may change from one year to another, but for now I am as content as I know how to be . Has it been a struggle, oh in more ways that I have the energy to list here. Has it been worth the struggle, yeah. Am I going to be okay ?

You Bet Your Ass I am.

Happy Birthday Daddy.

Have a great week.

I hate being sick.


I have been home for two days with the stomach virus from hell. My back now aches from so much sleeping so I forced myself to get up and go get yet another Dr. Pepper. Poor SU will have to re-load the ice box at this point. I know that I would feel better grabbing a shower, but that seems to be more effort than I can muster right now.

On the plus side, we managed to evade Humberto. It appeared that it was heading directly for the Island and the Big H , but veered off at the last minute. The scary part of all of this is that it only took about 24 hours for this thing to form , and we've has so many lately that the next 6 weeks make me a tad uneasy.

PLus side # 2: I have met and gotten to know a great group of gals on another board, they are all of a similar interest and always make me laugh out loud so here's s shout out in no particular order:

Newrose - feel better soon
SR Diva
All the others who lurk/post you know where

By and far they are funny, supportive, irreverant and have so very quickly become a regular part of my everyday routine.

Other than a project that I am behind on dealing with 17'th century Japan, not much else to say .The Moron is out of the hospital , but we don't know about the lab reports yet. For all the grief that I give him, I really hope and pray it is all good.

Have a great weekend.

It was fun while it lasted.....WAH

Let's see...

SU is home , chaos ensues...kidding. He had the best time while he as a part of the " Pro's From Dover" ( the original " MASH" will make sense.) They consumed far too many adult beverages and chased the lil white one hither, thither and yon. Poor dude has worked his arse off this year and really needed the vacay. This is one of those things where you go " Uh oh, sense a pattern ." He is at the age with the rest of his posse that I have no fear of bad behavior . Hell....nude chick could show up waving her personal floatation devices aloft and they would be more po'd that she was in their line of sight. They are that predictable. I have managed to get all of his laundry done, the Katz are.." Who is that tall chap ?" and routines are resumed.

As for Moi, I got to do a lot of things that needed to be done, spent time with Gal Pals , actually found the bottom of the top drawer of the file cabinet and had some peace and quiet. I am always amazed at how much I enjoy the sound of utter and complete silence. I work 45 hours a week with about 150 people , and the din will at times be enough to make me cry at the absurdity of it. Love most of them...oh hell yeah...but. While I consider myself rather gregarious , I also have this loner quirk. I like being alone. I like the quiet of it. It's calming and for me , rather healthy. I can't, simply cannot be around others 24/7/365 . I cannot do it. I don't need to be entertained, I don't need to be busy all the time. The simple peace of sitting on the patio and watching the cat romp is pleasure enough for me. Yes there was fun to be had for me...getting a facial , nails and Ped....getting the peach fuzz waxed off the face...oh hell yeah . But also, sitting and reading a book with a fresh pot of coffee....working in the garden , writing letters to friends...gearing down for a moment to enjoy the moment....Bliss....pure Bliss.

Next up....the deck will be finally built......huzzah. I've wanted one since we moved into the house 18 years ago....I'm almost giddy..yeah..I know that is lame.

I hope everyone had/has a wonderful holiday weekend.


Blessed Be...
