It’s been a few weeks since my last post. I’d like to say I’ve been busy but I haven’t. I’ve been happy and I tend to write my most prolific pieces when I’m not happy, or more importantly, when I’m depressed. I have been writing mind you, just not posting. I have been remiss. I have also been really sick. I ended up getting strep throat about 3 weeks ago. It got so bad I went to the ER in the beginning and was prescribed antibiotics and steroids for swelling in my throat. After about 12 days none of my symptoms were going away so I went to the doctor to be re-checked and it was still there! The antibiotic had not done it’s job. The doctor told me then that when prescribed an antibiotic your symptoms should all disappear within 48 hours. If they don’t, it means the medication is not working and to get yourself back to the doctor right away. Good to know 14 days later. I ended up having strep and laryngitis for about 22 days all together. It was horrible. I still have a bit of a tickle and cough but I’m definitely on the mend.
Mother’s Day is coming up and I’m of course having a few little gatherings with the kids and probably one with my husband, he always does something cute from he and our doggies. Other than that, I have nothing planned. I don’t speak to my own mother so the day is pretty stress free for me.
I’ve got a few projects going on Saturday in the yard. I’m kind of excited about it. I’ll be working on my fence repairs and filling some holes the dogs have dug up around the property. Every time my husband mows the lawn he hits a hole and knocks a tire off of our Zero Turn, lol, it’s insane. So I had some dirt delivered and I’ll be spending the beautiful Saturday weather out there getting some much needed things done. I’m also going to get a new planter for my front porch. The husband bought me the most gorgeous rose bush just out of the blue this week. He said when he saw it it made him think of me, awww. So now I want to plant it where it will re-bloom every year.
I also need to get a hair cut and a pedicure this week, I may do that tomorrow. I’ve been paying close attention to the news lately and for real shit is messed up right now and I think it’s only going to get worse. I hope all the conservatives out there who were so staunch and judgmental have been paying attention to what is truly going on and I’m not talking about all the Russia stuff, pay attention to the smaller stories: the EPA, the Earthquakes in Alaska, Grand Jury Indictments, states passing bills that hurt workers, LGBQT rights, healthcare, climate science, etc. Pay attention.
So that’s me the last few weeks.
