I'm not sick, but here four weeks to the day since I was rear-ended, my back and now again my NECK are bad. Ugh.

Sorry about the neck and back :(

I hate weekends. They are so depressing. And here I am again on St. Patty's day sitting in my house with no one to go anyplace with. :(

Everybody in my family has been sick over the last week and two days. Started on a Saturday with our youngest son. Then the next night our daughter got it. She stayed sick for two days. On Thursday my father had to take my husband to Urgent Care at the hospital (interesting to note that hubby is the only one who hasn't thrown up with this). Friday was my turn to be dangerously ill, but I managed to avoid my usual trip to the ER for fluids. This last Saturday our oldest was sick overnight (the unlucky recipent of dual-end troubles).

Thought we were finally in the clear. Ha ha ha. Last night it was midnight and I hadn't been to sleep courtesy of the heat when the last remaining healthy member of the family started throwing up. His immune system being very much like mine and his sister's, I expect him to be down for at least two days.

I got three hours of sleep on and off last night. Have loads of laundry to do and carpet to clean. Airing out the house quick before the thunderstorms hit this afternoon.

This fortnight sucks.

We have no heat in the house, but thankfully since we're moving to the other place Sat, it will just be one very cold week, and I have a room heater.

PS. The new place had electric heat, not oil YEAH!

Not to make light of any of the individual hardships mentioned above but I've just got over the shock that my Duke Blue Devils have been checked out of the Big Dance.
LeHigh? Seriously? Now what will I do with the rest of March . . .

Thank you, Divia!

I was in a fair amount of pain yesterday, but the house is clean, and the insurance adjuster called today to wrap up the medical bills portion of activities, so hopefully we're coming to the home stretch on the accident, its process, and even the pain. Fingers crossed anyway.

I've decided to go ahead and fill the muscle relaxant Rx after all - so time soon to go take Siddy for a walk (and stop by the pharmacy). Whee!
