sick days

What do you think of the new floor? Azalea likes it a lot. Greg and Steve did a great job! It was a dusty blue vinyl before (so hideous) but now I think its more contemporary, less country. I would have taken a pic of the countertop and sink, but its busy right now. I for one have been the opposite of busy- set down would be a term for me. I think I've slept more than a groundhog in hiberantion these last couple of days. I told my doc that I was sick due to all the hippie kids running around ( he has hippie kids ) he was only slightly amused. I'm trying a natural home remedy tonight- red wine, which I hear has antibacterial effects. I'm imagining it to burn my throat into submission. So I've done nothing of any value all day, except watch a very informative program on venomous spiders, to add to my list of things to avoid. Here is the current list of things I like to stay away from:
  • Deep, dark water-I can't swim for this very reason.
  • Street grates, especially ones I can't see the bottom-you never know, the metal could collapse.
  • Crowds, a festival of theives, germs and other unsavory beings.
  • Chinese food, the way to endless diareah.
  • Lazy folks, nothing irritates me more than seeing nothing getting done.
  • Listening to 'deep discussions on art'-why talk?
  • Spiders, snakes, scorpions....anything that bites.

That's a small list, any longer and everyone would think I was weird hermit, shaking my fists at kids and hippies. I'm not. I leave the house at least once a week.

The new floor looks great! I share several of your fears, particularly spiders and street grates. I walk around the street grates and my husband laughs at me. What if the metal collapsed and I fell down into a pit of spiders?

Ha ha ha, sounds like you've described New York with your list of fears!

You should have told your doctor, "Well, you should know best of all!"

And the floor does look good. I can't wait to see it in person. I'm getting the dates for my trip now. I'm trying to get it so that I can see mom and dad while I'm down there.

Oh and you better get better before I get there! Otherwise you'll have to lay in bed while the rest of us go out and have fun!
