Woe Despair and Agony on Me

I feel like I've been run over by a Mack truck.

I had a little relapse, and the wonder doc says I’m knocking on the pneumonia door. Lovely. Absolutely lovely.

So my bohiney has some injection marks in it, and it’s sore. The Hello Kitty bandaids did nothing to help the pain. My chest is sore from all the coughing. I’m taking major antibiotics and super duper prescription cough medicine. Downing vitamin C like there’s no tomorrow. The only good thing is that, when I’m not asleep or in some drug-induced stupor, I’m able to catch up on all your blogs.

I’ll leave you with this picture that one of my consultants sent me from his and his girlfriend’s vacation in Belize. And no, I didn’t even ask. Because this inquiring mind Does. Not. Want. To. Know.

Oh Jeez. Too bad we only appreciate our good health when we're sick. And you sound SICK. Speedy recovery, good screentime, a friend (VODKA MOM) with soup or scotch and your family leaving you the heck alone...is what I wish for you.

Annie said...

That's a funny sign. It's kinda scary, but makes a great photo op!

jill jill bo bill said...

Does that say $3 or $300? Because that is some expensive brew.Or a cheap Ho. Get better!!!! I know a great nurse. But she would eat you out of house and home.

Tricia said...

Looney Toons band-aids work much better.

Sorry you're feeling so puny. I know your wild spirit won't let you stay feeling bad for too long, though.

And you've totally resurrected my desire to buy the DVD's of Hee Haw again!

La Belette Rouge said...

I am sorry. Both my mother and my He-weasel have been very sick. He-weasel has had pnemonia for the last two weeks. Take good care of yourself, sweets.

Chatelaine said...

Oh, Janie, you've run yourself down, girl, all this dashing all over the place. Rest up and be good to yourself. I hope you feel better real soon.

I have some Hello Kitty band-aids too.

Janie said...

Thanks, y'all.

Love the double hit, Braja. Trying to make fun of a sick girl?
I loved it!

I'll try to get better soon!

The Panic Room said...

aww, sorry you are all stuffy and cough and hurt. wrap a hot towel around your head. I don't know I just like that line from ferris Bueller's Day Off.

TexasRed said...

Sorry that you're feeling so down. Hope you're better soon.

Also, i was most amused that a sign offering Beer, Food, and Girls advertises Billiards & not Pool. Classy.

Library girl said...

Poor you! Hugs and get better wishes coming your way!

Far Side of Fifty said...

That nasty flu knocked me for a loop too..and the relapses suck! Breathe deep, drink water like there is no tomarrow and rest. :)

SSP said...

sorry to hear it, but truly at least you got home FIRST. I had to drive to houston all snotted up...couldn't take anything for 2 days before either cuz i didn't want the lingering drowsiness......
Feel better!!!!!!

Vodka Mom said...

crap! I hope you feel better heifer! I was just over at Braja and LAUGHED out loud at your double comments, and the third one.
'
damn. you KNOW I love to laugh. (still chuckling here...)

Can I bring you some soup??? I'll be RIGHT over....

Vodka Mom said...

oh shit- Braja just CRACKED me up with her double. damn she's quick.

Buddha's Place said...

Ouch..hope you feel better soon. You have to love the hello kitty bandaids though:)

Junosmom said...

Sorry to hear you are sick, Janie. Hope you are well soon.

Irish Gumbo said...

Hey, look! They have billiards! (har)

Ma'am, I find the Hello Kitty band-aids work a lot better in combination with a liberal dose of whiskey. At least, that's what my G-maw told me. Although now that I think about it, a LOT of G-maw's remedies involved whiskey. I miss my G-maw...

Thank you so much for hopping on board the IG bus, you honor me! Always good to get another voice in the choir.

You mentioned shooting sports in your masthead, does that include hunting? I don't hunt (lousy shot, I'm afraid), but an aquaintance of mine is a big goose and duck man. I probably couldn't hit them, but I'm pretty good at cooking some now and then...

Enough blarney, I know you are sick, welcome aboard! Thank you!

Jennifer and Sandi said...

Wow I hope you get better soon!!! And does that sign really say Beer, Girls, Food, Billards & $300?? I want to go there. Anyone handing out $300 is a place I want to hang out at!!

I sent you my address. THANKS WOMAN!!!

- Jennifer

Gwynne said...

So sorry to hear you are sick, but for a sicko, you're still funny, so you've got that goin' for ya. ;-) Glad you got back safely, if less for the wear. Please, for the love of Hello Kitty Band-aids, get better soon!!

i beati said...

oh crap - whoops bad choice of words.. Double darnn!!Get well

Stu Pidasso said...

I hope you feel better and have a speedy recovery. But I wish for you to have the hubby home to wait on you hand and foot.

Cheers and beers,

Stewey the shroomzilla

Warped Mind of Ron said...

Holy Crap! This crud is really making it around. Listen to the doctor and take it easy. Get better soon.

The Incredible Woody said...

I'm so sorry that you've been sick. Hope you feel better soon. Rest well.

MommyChris said...

OMW! Well if that's the case, you should make yourself a hot toddy and get back to bed!!!

Tami said...

Oh my gosh....well I would hope that the good ladies of Belize are not selling themselves short...

Michelle said...

I'm sorry girlie!! I hope you feel better soon!!

Your butt too!!! Can we hug it out please???

Happy Thursday!!!

Chris McClure aka Panhandle Poet said...

Get well soon. (not too creative, huh?)

I'll be in your part of the world next week -- Beef Symposium at The Horseshoe. Drop by if you're in the neighborhood.

Smartass Milf said...

Are the girls and beer $3 or $300? $3 is a deal if you ask me!

I hope you feel better. Get some Vicks Baby VapoRub, it has lavender in it and I love it! Way better than the original.

In_spired said...

Janie....so sorry you're sick. We've been there and done that (right before Christmas) and I feel your pain. Hope you're better really soon.

BTW....what happened to Kellygirl?

Foo said...

Sorry to hear you're sick. Get well soon!

life in the sahara said...

Hope you are feeling better. Do you need that magic soup I got hooked on? Let me know.

Valerie said...

Dang Janie hate to hear your sick. Hubby has been sick felt good for about a week and now it's baaaacckk. Hope you get to feeling better soon girl!

Soxy Deb said...

If that's just one girl and one beer, I'd try to negotiate a better price.

Hope you get to feeling better. And if the Hello Kitty doesn't work you should try Spongebob. It works for me.

Karen said...

Speedy recovery, Janie! I've had it, two years in a row, and now my doctor demands I get a pneumonia shot along with my annual flu shot.

Pam said...

Okay, now, haul your hurting boheiny back to the bed. Send TMYL to the video store for about a bazillion chick flicks, after he gets you set up with some Chai Tea. Stay in bed all weekend. I promise you'll feel better. But you MUST STAY IN BED, or at least cozied up on the couch. NO running around town. You have a duty to your faithful readers to get to feeling better and back to posting!;)
So sorry you're not feeling well, no wonder everything was levitating in the Yukon on the way home the other day!

Far Side of Fifty said...

Sending more get well soon thoughts..you must be down and out..send in the guest blogger with an update:)

Captain Smack said...

Please give me the address of this place in Belize. Around here, beer and girls are almost $8, so that looks like a real bargain.

Julie said...

That sign is a riot.

Feel better!!!!!!!!!

Gregory Anderson said...

Get well soon.

Fragrant Liar said...

Girls $3.00? And I thought I was a cheap date!

Sleep, sleep, sleep. Hope you are taking it easy and TMYL is spoiling you back to health.

Love the sign - great for a Sunday morning giggle.

Snooty Primadona said...

Get your hiney well so we can do lunch! Call me if you need something. Seriously.

Tabitha Blue said...

Oh goodness... feel better soon. That does not sound like fun. Hope you can recover quickly!!
