Yes, lots and lots of cheese, thank you.
I got up yesterday and felt like dog dookie. Actually the term getting up doesn't really apply much. I slept horrible and felt terrible and I didn't get up on time. I dragged myself out of bed later and found a freezer burnt frozen breakfast sandwich in the freezer and nuked it for my hubby and went back to bed. Hopefully I removed the paper towel and he didn't eat it. LOL. I tried getting up again later on as I had stuff to do and it didn't go well either. I tried to fix my son and me some breakfast and managed to drop it in the floor and shatter a plate into smithereens. The pieces went for 2 miles and I was pretty peeved to have to clean up that mess and start over. I was a wretched hag, hunched over, cross-eyed, grumbling, foaming at the mouth, complete with 4 letter expletives. I ran out of bad words I knew and made some up.
Later on I was going to use my new stainless steel grill and noticed that a varmint was under it. I didn't recognize what it was so I called my son and he didn't either. It was a baby rodent of some kind and was grayish brown with a black tail. Not a raccoon, possum, mink.
The appliance shop called and they couldn't fix our air conditioner which is under warranty. I was cranky and irrational and fed up and I called my husband at work and told him I did not want to fight some animal for my new grill. He knows how to deal with me when I'm like this and he becomes Sir Lancelot. He will fight the rabid animal tooth and nail - not the grill varmint, I mean the appliance repairman. LOL. He had my son take pictures of the grill animal. It was kind of cute really. Hubby and my son finally decided it was a baby ground hog but it wasn't brown and fat like most of the ones I've seen. I don't mind it hanging around but I still don't want to share my new grill with it.
The bottom line is MRSA is kicking my butt right now. I have a temp. I have aches, pains, fatigue, lethargy. My new lesion is not as bad as the last one which on a scale of 1-10 was a 10. The new one is a 4 so far. Enough already.
So yesterday was a wash so to speak. I fed the wildlife and spent most of the day in bed. Lots of turtles came. I did finally managed to get 3 loads of laundry done with my son's help as he was off work. I slung a supper together. I went back to bed.
Today I felt a tiny bit better. My son was off again and we had to go to a town about 25 miles away and pick up the air conditioner. The business who does Lowes repairs in my area is a dump. Right now I am not allowed to do any lifting and the lazy heifer that works there offered no help so my son had to carry the air conditioner to the truck by himself. They were supposed to have it put back together but didn't even bother to do that. They handed me a pile of screws - no bag to put them in. She was lucky I was sick because normally I would have ripped her friggin head off. Gutted her like a catfish. My husband was peeved when he got home and found out how we were treated. He will be lodging a complaint to Lowes, Frigidaire, and the Better Business Bureau.
I spent a lot of the rest of the day in bed again but managed to fix a nice supper. Too much comfort food but I needed it right. A few hundred pancakes and a quart of syrup right now makes me feel better. Smack, smack, smack.
