Monday Miscellany

  • Wee Maggie is off to the vet today, to have her teeth looked at. I suspect she has (yet more!) dental problems.
  • The car is making funny sounds.
  • The house is freezing.
  • I am still sick.
  • I am not doing well on my diet.
  • I could barely walk 5 km on Saturday.
  • I still feel miserable.

I am all out of good humour, good cheer and good intentions. Please tell me what is going well in your world, because I seem to be all out of good in mine.

    I didn’t gain but a pound and a half even after a week and a half of emotions, fun, tears, birthday cake (several) and visitors! I guess that’s some goodness.

    I am in good health. Since I started eating beans (don’t laugh) as my main source of protein, my digestion has become much better. Since I gave up coffee I actually eat less; I think the caffeine was causing too many fluctuations in my blood sugar.

    Feel better and allow yourself to rest.

    Would you have a use for hand dyed sock yarn?
    Here’s what the wrapper thingy said:
    100% merino wool. 100 grams (3-1/2 ounces) 440 yards. Gauge : 7-8 sts=1″ on #1 – #3 needles
    Hand wash, dry flat
    I know nothing about knitting.

    People are puking in my house, again.

    One of them in the car between schools this morning.

    I’m not sure that qualifies as anything good. But, perhaps as they say, misery loves company?

    I love a good commiseration as much as the next gal . . . :0)

    {{hugs}} I hope things get lots better for you soon!

  5. excavator says:

    I’m sorry you’re not feeling well and that everything else is conspiring against you too.

    I hope that time tells that the dog’s teeth, and everything else, are fine, the noise in the car is just a stick caught in the undercarriage, and HEY! You walked 5K?

    Wishing you a warm house and heart very soon.

  6. HereWeGoAJen says:

    My house is fairly clean. It’s also freezing here, but for me, freezing means 59 outside and 67 inside. I’m still wearing a t-shirt. And I am using the little dog as a back pillow right now (because he is cold).

  7. Duck says:

    I despise my work.
    It is bloody cold.
    Giving up gluten is HARD.

  8. Brown Owl says:

    A Brownie cleared my sidewalk of new snow this morning! No puppy puddles! Scary busy in the archives all non-archival work. The buses made connections – no waiting this morning. Pizza with new neighbours yesterday, met Hudson.. a huge rescue Husky/malamut with scary shaved tail and hind-end (mats) Sucky puppy! No colds here (knock/knock/knock)

    Happy Monday Mrs Spit.

    (on the Bad side – Toni and Timmy go for dentals next week…. happy kitties – NOT)

  9. Aunt Becky says:

    I have hilarious gas.

  10. a says:

    Well…um…it’s my day off, and I’m not planning on getting dressed today. My house is freezing too, though, since my husband decided that 65 degrees (F) is a good inside temperature.

  11. Jamie says:

    After feeling all sorry for myself, I made some cupcakes – chocolate on chocolate. It is amazing all the things a chocolate cupcake can fix. Shall I send you one?

  12. debby says:

    Gees. You’ve received so many ‘good vibrations’ here that I am ashamed to put my two cents in! I had a great weekend with family and friends, and I have a strata in the fridge for Tim’s supper tomorrow, because I have both school and work. I have a roast going with peppers, onions, mushrooms and diced tomato. The house smells great, and it’s clean, and the laundry is almost done, and I’ve got fresh linens on the bed…life is good! And I’m all kinds of ways impressed with a woman who can walk 5k while she’s sick. Furthermore, your body probably is craving the extra calories because you’re not feeling well. And furthermore than that, spring is coming. Really. I promise.

  13. Reese says:

    I started out my week this morning @ the ER to check if I had a blood clot in my leg. After 3 hours, 1 ultrasound, and 3 episodes of The First 48, got the all clear. I could have gone back to work, but decided to spend the rainy day drinking hot chocolate and napping.

    Sending you a warm quilt and some hot tea, Mrs. Spit!



  14. linds says:

    Hmmm…fresh out of good news around these parts. Perhaps later in the week I can tell you some?

  15. I am finally cleaning/purging my he11ho1e of an office. Yes, it’s That Bad. I enjoyed our recent rain and I am looking forward to more.
    Sorry for the Oy Veyness.

  16. Calliope says:

    hate that you are sick! I think I am just now over an awful chest cold that just about did me in. Or so it felt. I ate a late lunch (3pm) and now it is nearly 9:30pm and I am soooooo hungry but soooo tired.

  17. WhiteStone says:

    Sorry that you are under the weather! What’s going well with me? We’re at the Mayo Clinic…first blood tests and initial exam tomorrow…hoping good news by Thursday…good news meaning the most optimal recommendation for further treatment for my ovca. Weird, but I’m actually looking forward to what they have to say, even though I know the cancer is again active. Pretty weird when you get addicted to treatment. (smile)

  18. Jess says:

    I got to work today! Which was good considering I no longer have a job.

  19. Angie says:

    I made my deadlines this week. That’s all I got.

  20. Needles says:

    Its Tuesday morning but I think I have it figured out. Its not us, its the moon phases. I mean seriously, how could we not feel sluggish and low when we are in a moon phase called waning gibbous.

  21. loribeth says:

    Nothing horrendously bad happening in my neck of the woods, thank goodness, but nothing that makes me want to burst into song & dance either. I guess that’s February for you…

  22. Kristin says:

    Ummm, we are all finally moderately healthy.

    I went to AC Moore and bought yarn and hooks and knitting needles and all kinds of fun stuff!

    We still have snow and ice on the ground.

  23. Maureen says:

    Hot apple cider.

    I made myself a pan of gluten free brownies, they were decent, not difficult to make, and a relatively reasonable price.

    19 month old laughter at the humor of saying the name “Bubba” over and over.

    New fuzzy slippers from Target.
