Been Sick, Leaving Town~

Gotta Go!
Don't know if it is a smart thing or not, but we are leaving town in the morning. My daughter and my cousin will split taking care of the house and the dogs. Thank goodness now I have a little more help. We are going back to Branson to spend three days with Scott's siblings. I am very excited to have time with them and them alone. Not that I don't LOVE seeing all the nieces and nephews (who are actually closer to my age!) but this will be really good quality time to spend with these special people in Scott's life.
I have had the flu. I am betting it is the H1N1 flu, maybe not, but I would be willing to bet the rent it is. This has been very painful, and I am still not recovered, but feel good enough to go somewhere else to rest!!! If you get the chance to get the shot...DO IT! This has really been a painful flu, I don't like throwing up, but I think this one has been more painful than that. The "stuff" went straight to the chest, and I coughed my head off. Then the throat was so sore I thought I had gotten strep throat. Now my ribs, back and body hurt very badly. I had to take a pain pill last night just to try and make it through the night. I don't do that...I am just not a pill taker, but I am telling you all, I was hurting so bad, I just had to have some relief. This afternoon I hit the turn around point and started feeling better. I am sooooo thankful. We have had these plans for a couple months to to Branson, so I am really looking forward to it. I called Scott's two brothers and told them I have been sick and asked them if they were afraid of me, both families said no. So I gave them fair warning!!!! I love my husband's family! I really did not want to miss this, so I am glad they are letting me come regardless if they are scared of me or not!!! ha ha ha. I am going to take the camera, and just relax for the next three days. I just hope my daughter comes through for me and my dogs. Check in on her will you?
OH MY GOSH....there is a new "thing" called BLOW. It comes with a mirror, maybe even the razor blade, to cut it up, and then you add it to water. Equal to two Red bulls, and three cups of coffee. I am furious. I am sick to death that this country lets idiots put this stuff out for our kids to enjoy in the name of free market and enterprise. There are no morals left I tell you. And of course the people they interviewed thought it was so funny....some of them were adults. You might be able to find out more about this "product" at not sure, but I think that is what was on the news. I just can't believe it. It is packaged just like cocaine...can you believe that???? Ok, I have got to go.....I have got to get to bed so I can get up in the morning and pack.....yep, I have not done that yet.

I am so sorry that you had the flu! Bur at the same time glad that you are getting well. This trip should be the ticket to feeling better all together!
I'll check in on the dogs and house for you. (Wish I actually could...your dogs are gorgeous!)
Have a good time, get lots of rest. Check in with us when you get back!

I am so sorry to hear you've been so sick. But I hope you have a nice trip and get better soon. This Blow business makes me sick.

I hope the resting in Branson will cure your ills and let you enjoy your trip.

The Blow crap... Probably the world was softened up way back in the day with Candy Cigarettes that the parents thought were cute and now it has advanced/evolved into this Blow stuff.

Have a great time. Get well.

Well gosh. I didn't know you were sick. I need to get out more. By now I know you're better (thanks for the email)and I hope you had a fantastic time in Branson. I've always wanted to go there too.

I am SO SICK of the energy drinks. Just getting kids hooked on everything and they are still worried about them smoking. That's the LAST of the problems.

I do hope that you are feeling much better now! And I hope you had a wonderful trip!

Oh Lisa, I'm so sorry you were sick. I hope you're much better now, and having a ball in Branson. We've never been there, but do plan to go one day soon. I haven't blogged in over a week because of our camping trip, but I hope to get something written tonight.

Have a ball, dear friend! Talk to you soon. Love ya!
