Little Joys!

It is sooooo good to be back in the land of the living.  I had 2 terribly sick days of sleeping and sweating (don't I sound attractive!  But I promise I've showered since then) and one moderately sick day where I only filled one empty tissue box with my nasal waste (instead of the 2 a day previously used).  

It's a joy to be out the other end of it all and to be able to appreciate doing little things  like:
- Grocery shopping ... and boy!  I got some really good deals today --- $1 off 2 L 1% milk; 50% off Oikos yogurt;  a Burt's Bees lip balm marked down to $1; and a little bag of honey peanuts ('cause a girl needed to revive her tired self after all that shopping and bargain excitement).

- Making some yummy corn and bacon chowder for supper.  (The girls were awfully glad not to have to eat Asian noodles again tonight!)

- And being able to do a little housework ... 'cause after you've been sneezing and honking your way 'round the house in your sweat-stained jammies and worn down scuffs (slippers), you need to get those germs out of your house ASAP!

PS - I don't think I was quite as excited to scour my toilet as this young miss is!  I guess even I have more of a life than some people.

And now on top of all this joy at almost being well again, I get to stroll my way through a half Friday tomorrow, contemplate a yard sale weekend AND have a stat holiday on Monday.  (Victoria Day in Canada.)

Ahhh!  Things are looking up, people!

Enjoy the long weekend. It sounds like you could use it!


A Burt's Bees lip balm marked down to $1. That is UNHEARD of. I'm happy to hear you snatched it right off the shelf and put it in your shopping cart. I'm glad you are feeling better. hope the germs have found a new place to reside. take care.

Ohhhhhhh, soooooooo sorry you have been sick!!!!!!!!! -pout- -moan-

But soooooooooo HAPPY it is over!!!!

Yes, don't even (usually weird) things, like grocery shopping, take on a "brighter hue" when we feel up to doing them, again? ,-)

So good to hear you are feeling better! And I so agree with getting the germs cleaned up. I go nuts when someone in the house has been sick. Disinfecting everything!!
Glad your back!!

Glad to hear you're feeling better. We had the flu sweep through our house a couple weeks ago and it was right nasty. Bacon and corn chowder sounds divine!
