Under The Weather

     This has been ME for a few days now. "Under The Weather". I thought that art4barewalls' painting was just perfect for how I've been feeling. I'm going to get it too!! :-)  I want to hang it on the wall next to my bed, to look at right before I go to bed. I'm thinking that maybe it'll make me sleepy. What do you think?! ^_^
      I have a few sleep issues. If you've read this blog before you know ALL ABOUT IT!!! LOL Talented people are so great at getting thoughts across in their art. I got sleepy again just looking at this painting. That's why I just love talented people!! art4barewalls included!
     So, as I was saying, I've been under the weather. Actually, hubby and I both have been under the weather. The difference between the way we handle it is that he goes off to work or wherever anyway, and I, when I don't feel well, become like this kitty...
     ...sitting in one spot, staring at....anything and nothing all at the same time. Or...sleeping!!! And yesterday the latter one was what I did...all day! That wasn't my plan. I had "PLANNED" to crochet, write some cards, balance my checkbook, and maybe watch the rerun of "Survivor". But I woke up with a sinus headache and after lunch it started to do that throbbing thing, so I took a "Nap". A nap that lasted for about 5 hours!!! Me and my pillows,...not this pillow though, it's in my shop! *Teehee*...

      ...we had a very good time. :-)
     Strange though,...and I don't make this stuff up!...about 3 hours into my nap, my girlfriend tapped me on the shoulder....No, I wasn't dreaming! She had taken her spare key, raced over to my house, let herself in, and came in to see if I was okay!! Imagine my shock to be awakened from my sweet soft marshmallow dream and find my girlfriend staring at me...Me wearing my C-Pap with the hoses and everything, by the way!...and saying: "Are you alright?!"
    Apparently my hubby had been trying to call and text me for hours. And when I didn't respond...cuz he knows how much I like to talk, and that I would never, on purpose, miss an opportunity to talk!!...he got really worried and called my girlfriend to run over and check on me!! He really is the sweetest thing ever!....A bit of a worry wart, but the sweetest thing ever! :-)
    My girlfriend though, who knows how much I love my naps, tried to tell him that I was probably just in Hawaii somewhere (in my dreams!!), but he was not having any of that gibberish! When she tapped me and asked if I was okay, and I motioned that I was okay, she said: "Okay, go back to sleep! Call me when you get up.", and off she went! 
    Now, you would think that being awakened like that, finding out that my husband is worried, and wondering if she locked the door on her way out, would probably completely wake me up!...But you would be wrong!! I didn't feel well, the headache was still there, and so....back I went to sleep...for another couple of hours!!
    When I woke up I called both of them. Me and my girlfriend giggled and laughed about it. My hubby sounded like my voice was the best thing he had ever heard in his life!! He was almost teary, and he was talking non-stop!!! WOW!....Hey, wait a minute! I'm the talker in this family buddy!!! LOL
    Around 8:00p.m....No Kidding!...hubby, who was by now really starting to feel more 'under the weather' than before, said: :You're probably not tired after all of the sleeping you been doing today, but I'm so tired. I'm ready for bed." And what did I say?...."Me too!!!" We went to bed...immediately....and didn't wake up til this morning!!!
     This morning hubby was feeling better. I'm feeling a bit better too. I'm not feeling like the kitty...I'm feeling like the goldfish!! ^_^ I hope I can get my "Planned" things done today. How are you feeling?!
     Before I go, let me introduce you to another fellow AWM member of mine. This is one side of her business card...
     This is the other. Clever isn't it?! I never saw a cute little round business card.
     Her Etsy shop is called "jennylisa". Her daughter Abbey is the  little model of her Baby Tassel Hat-//Flre//. Soooo cute! Please go by and check out her other items too!!

Real Love

There are many folks in love;
Many share their lives-and stuff.
They can make a lot of claims;
But they don't  have a thing on us!

We share one heart-in every way.
One heart whose flesh can share one mind;
One wife who loves her husband,
and one husband's love-in kind.

The earth can shake and quiver,
but we'll  stand on solid ground,
as each others firm foundation-
A place to put our problems down.

But the softest place to fall
is a foundation firmer still;
In two arms of reassurance,
and a love that's safe-and real.


  1. Hey there! I'm sorry you guys have been under the weather. I had that same thing last week. Did I give it to you?? Must have breathed too hard on the computer screen! LOL Glad you're better today. And I'm glad you woke up too! I can understand why hubby was worried. Take care, my friend, and get better!!

  2. I am so glad you are feeling a bit better today. I never got to my blog last night, so I am working on it now. I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures. I loved reading your beautiful words about your cute! Love You!

  3. CinLynn, Ha! Ha! No, you didn't give it to me!!! I think hubby brought it home as a gift from some of the store owners that cough on him every day. THANK THEM!!! *sarcasm!!!* ...I'm awake now though!! ^_^

    SpanishLullabies, Thank you! I know your blog wasn't up because I've been like that guy in that cell phone commercial, the one that kept moving and saying: "Can you hear me now?!" I've been clicking and saying: "Is it there yet?!....What about now?....What about now?!....." Ha! Ha! Ha! Obviously I love you too, and can't wait to see your story!!!

  4. Debbie sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. I get those sinus headaches alot too and they are awful!! Makes me very sleepy too when I get them.

    Rest and I hope you feel better soon! :)

  5. Thanks Cathy! Actually, I'm feeling much better now! Onward and checkbook-ward!!! LOL

  6. So sorry to hear that you are feeling under the weather. And what a caring hubby & friend you have to check on you like they did.
    I hope you and hubby feel better soon.

  7. Thanks Joanne, Both of us are on the mend. My headache is least for now. And I'm AWAKE! That's something, right?! :-)

  8. What a heart-warming story! Love the poem, too... very much! “To love someone is nothing, to be loved by someone is something, but to be loved by the one you love is everything”.

  9. Janet, Awwww! Thank you. That's really sweet of you! Who's quote is this? I like it! :-)

  10. It is very nice that you introduce other bloggers through your blog. Sure, they appreciate it. It is through your blog that I found Cathy Bueti's blogs, and might find others of interest as well.

    About this post, and others: You write like, you are in conversation with the reader. I find it very enjoyable.

  11. I'm glad you guys are feeling a little better! Hope you're feeling great soon. :)

    Happy Saturday!

  12. P.s. I love the sleepy owl print too. :) I kind of want to snuggle up with him for a nap :)

  13. Seasons, I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying the blog links! It's not a thing I think about a lot. It's just something that happens. I enjoy them myself! :-)...And as to my writing style, that comes from me keeping personal diaries for years!!! I'm use to talking to myself! ^_^

  14. Hi Samantha, Yes, we're feeling physically better. Now we have another situation to deal with though!! UGH!...And I love the owl!! I'm hoping to get one for myself soon. :-)

  15. I don't want the sinus headache, but, man, I would love to get that much sleep! I hope you're feeling better!

  16. Sarah, You say that now! After a while though, you feel like you're gonna be Rip Van Winkle or somebody!!! ^_^
