Busy and Sick!!

Friday we hopped in the neighbours SUV and took a fast trip to Fort Myers for lumber..Miss Debbie and her furkid Fritz needed a new step, as the trailer step was a little tricky for poor Fritz to get in and out..they are so narrow. We had quite a crew on board for this project.

Cheerleaders-Dottie, Cheryl and Debbie and myself but someone had to take the pictures

Taaa Daaaa Test Run
Fritz says Thanks to all my uncles Rick, Cal and Tommy

While in Fort Myers Deb and I even got a quick visit into AC Moores for some more jewellery findings and beads..this is a craft I think I'm going to like. So now I'm quilting and crafting jewellery. Here is my first go round..finished product..I made this Friday evening while watching TV.
Done in blacks creams and silver
Yesterday morning I awoke about 5:30 and boy was I sick. I could hardly breath, and it felt like someone parked an elephant on my chest. I dove to the medicine cabinet grabbed the antibiotics and my puffers (I travel prepared) ..swooped the OJ container out of the fridge poured a honking big glass swilled it down with an antibiotic...then realize..dear heavens thats the OJ we mixed up with vodka for the NYE dance (didn't want to be obvious over there)...I slathered myself with buckley's white rub, and dove back under the covers where I spent most of the day. I did get up periodically and move around because often with me the bronchitis turns to pneumonia. After being in the horizontal most of the day yesterday, I was asleep more than I was awake..and worried I wouldn't sleep last night. But I did and I feel much better today. Still coughing and congestion but much much better.
I sure don't have time to be sick. Today I will putter around here a bit till the energy runs out. Which should only take about 15 minutes..so I better get moving.
Stay safe out there folks..Rene and Jeanette are sure having their problems..glad to see they finally found a competent RV repair technician. Larry and Mar got a beautiful new flat screen HD TV installed..and Rick and Paulette are safe and sound and into the swing of things at their destination..and many of us are still having our problems with Verizon ughhh...
Take care and until the next time...thanks for stopping by..

  1. Feel better soon!

    Maybe you should do what Rick & Paulette did and give up on Verizon and go with Time Warner. They didn't seem to have any problem being Canadian with Time Warner.

  6. That Vodka and Orange juice with the meds. will help you relax and get better soon, I think. At least sleep well.

  7. I agree with George and Suzie :) Vodka can relax you and let you sleep until you're well!

  8. I am with you friend, something has gotten me down too. Just when I think I am over it, there it comes again. Yesterday I was completely dizzy and lightheaded. AND I didn't partake of any OJ and vodka. Perhaps I should had? Do hope today is better for both of us.

    Great looking steps there!

    Sorry you are under the weather, I also awoke with congestion this morning. Off to mix some OJ and vodka.

    1. hahaha you go girl...it wasn't intentional on this end didn't even remember we had done that...sure feel better today..so maybe that plus the puffer, plus the antibiotics and the buckleys is the trick...

  10. Don't think that's the kind of plenty of fluids they recommend! But it must have done the trick. :c)

    I have to watch out for the pneumonia, too. Maybe I should try some of your orange juice?

  16. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Sending prayers your way !!

    All you can do is rest up, and keep the liquids flowing.

    Had a great laugh when you drank the OJ and vodka ... lol.
