Best laid plans: SPLAT!!!

Friday, September 06, 2013

I had planned to walk to the neighbors for chores, but began to feel worser and worser. My head hurt. My gums, jaw ached horribly. So to doctor I must go.

Nurse practitioner tells me my head is all infected and take medicine for fourteen days. Yay, so it wasn't all in my head, well, wait.... it was.

Only on day two and it was a rocky start as the right side of my head still is feeling a need to explode. So I did not sleep well. Well, at ALL, last night.
Up, down, read a bit in my latest pioneer story book...

Of course I forgot what I was doing last night at 7pm, and drank 8 ounces of cold brewed coffee with a light supper. BINGO, recipe for wakefulness all night long.

Didn't know caffeine could be so stimulating.
Maybe it was the mix of drug and coffee.

I am glad hubby has local work to take me to chores.
I got a swelled head.
But the kittens still are cute and cuddly,
and a great comfort to my throbby face.

I'm sure in a day or two my body will then
have this malady on the run and I can walk

AND to celebrate recovery, I replaced my
hiking boots, that were destroyed in the barn
by horrid mold. They will arrive next week and
I will use them so I never lose them again.

I got a boot care kit as well, since these are
'nice' boots, well rated for ankle support and
did I say, I am VERY excited about them?! And
my ankles are excited, even.

They better fit me well, but had to order online
due to no selection in my tiny town shoe store.

I'm going to put my swelled head to bed now.

    Sorry to hear that you are still feeling so poorly. Hopefully that medication will kick in quick like and you'll be feeling better in no time! Enjoy the new boots! Isn't it fun and exciting to get new things? Nothing makes me feel better then putting on a new sweater, some new jeans, some new tennis shoes or getting my hair cut or doing some other little something for myself. I don't do it often, but when I do? I always feel like a million bucks! Guess what I'm getting at here is. . . I completely understand why your ankles are excited! emoticon emoticon
