Sickie-poo THursday

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Who knew? I never realized it was possible to get 100,000 gallons of mucous from four teensy little sinus cavities! Had to call in sick at 4 this morning, I was awake all night, then tried to sleep in the chair, liquids coming from every possible orifice from the neck up...

My eyes were glued shut, had to actually put an incontinent pad on my pillow from all the STUFF exiting my nose! I drooled like a person stranded in the desert, leaving there and entering an air conditioned bar with free drinks! If I lie down, everything clogs up, only mouth breathing, making a sore, dry throat. If I sit up, I am cold, tired, unable to sleep.
I feel like ten miles of bad road, with major potholes..

Today is my second allergy day. Headache, dripping eyeballs, blowing bubbles through my nose all night. Not conducive to sleep. Since I am unable to take any meds before going to work, I just took some dayquil which will knock me out soon, so I hurry to get my Spark page read.
DD has already stripped and made the beds, did the laundry and sucked up seeping rainwater with the shop vac , so all I have to do is prepare dinner later..
Yesterday and today are about the only two days a month I do not have bills to pay or errands ot run. Tomorrow the mail will be crawling with stuff to do.
Got a couple hours of cardio in today,, I think I lost about a quart of water "glistening" during it all!!

    Linda, my DH suffers from allergies and asthma. One of the things he's found most helpful in lessening his allergy symptoms to the pollen onslaught every year is nasal irrigation. You can use a Netti Pot, or a smile plastic squeeze bottle kit. Both can be bought in a drugstore or the grocery store. It has most definitely made a world of difference for him, and he tells other allergy suffers about it. His nose isn't even running this year! He does this three times a day - morning, afternoon, and evening. He says he can still feel the pollen in his eyes, throat, and his lungs.

He also showers twice a day, one int he AM before work, and usually after work when he's inside for the rest of the day. Both of these seem to help tremendously. I hope they'll help you, too!

Today is dentist day! No big deal, I can take a nap in the chair.. just a cleaning and checkup.
THE sun is out, blue skies, BUt more snow on the horizon Friday.

Debbieanne, Yes, we did find a new place in Indian River. THe first four days/five days we will be in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on Lake Superior across from Sault Ste Marie canada.. These are log cabins on the water.
When we leave there we will drive across The Mackinac Bridge down to Indian River,Mi to stay in these cabins that were built in the 1940's, but have been renovated. I will take pictures of them, but you can go to the website,michiganbrentwoodcabins.com.
They look like they were just built, but not.. Ours is a one bedroom with two queen beds, flat screen tv's in bedroom and living room, have a kitchenette too.
We will be driving to Mullet Lake and Burt lake for the beach, also to Petoskey,MI to be on Lake MIchigan at the state park beach there. Petoskey is very upscale for northern Michigan,, lots of trunk-slammer shops and restaurants, but we go for the water.

Just for the day,,it is only about 30 miles from our cabin, as the crow flies.

Our cabins in Indian River, because we will be staying mid-week, are , $65/night!!! Yes, that is the right price, with central air too.
I am determined to actually relax and rest this year. Last year was all about taking DD to see all the stuff she saw as a four year old, but could not remember, and I have spent my whole life going all over the north part of this state, know it quite well. Hundreds of water fall,s lakes, rivers, parks,etc.

If anybody is going to be in the Yoopee at that time,(Aug16-22) let us know, we can get together for a hike .

So glad I took a gander at the sun yesterday,none today,, it looks more like October or NOvember,, grey skies and cold winds.

No more shaky incidents today, but worked late in the day and made a few phone calls for appointments. I am trying to move more to rid myself of the winter shaky legs syndrome.. WHen it is always wet, icy, slippery wherever you walk, you end to walk like a G.I putting his foot forward to feel for land mines. For those that never had to live like this, picture yourself walking on wet jello everywhere except your own home, for seven months out of he year. Entrances to buildings are wet and slippery too.

Got call form cabin owners in the U.P today to confirm my cabin in August. I wanted to give him my credit card number last month when I called to confirm, but he told me he would call me back later since he was making a new form to fill out and wanted to do it then. Well, now I have to call them back since I was at work when he called. Phone tag,, I called the dental clinic Friday to make an appointment.I CALLED THEM.
While I was at work this monrning, they called me to confirm the apointment,Pkay,, SHe then said, "Please call me back to confirm that you really want this appointment."

I call her back and ask he r why I have to call her back idf she is leaving ME a message confirming my appointment tomorrow. SHe told me thay have alwyaas done that.. Never heard of her, never knew she worked there..

I told her that I called THEM , therefore I wanted the appointment,, She did not understand this..(?????????????????????)
She argued with me that it has always been that way, I told her I have been going there for fifteen years and it has never happened to me yet,she told me that she has been there for FIVE years, so it has always been that way!
(?????????????????) Wha?

I just switched to a bundle package for phone, cable and internet,, I am thinking I somehow got hooked up to The Twilight Zone fiber optic network..
Was I not hearing or understanding something oh-so-obvious here?

    what are you paying for that package? We pay $110.00

I thought at your last vacation you ladies found a new place of cabins a little cheaper and were switching to them???

For the first time in ten days the sun is out and bright in the sky!! We have not seen it since April 4!
No rain yet, but more snow on the way, supposedly.. Michigan is the only state in the union that we wear sunscreen, long-johns and sleeveless shirts under our hoodies every day! We do actually carry a bag packed with snow shovel, umbrella(bumbleshoot for those in the UK), swimsuit, sunscreen, toothbrush, change of undies and food staples and water in our car year round.
I feel much better today, got laundry going, headed out to pick up newspapers in a minute,, today I will go out and soak up some Vitamin D,if the sun is still out when I go to the door,,
