It's the little things in life...

Day 3 of my cold/flu thing.  I don't know what this thing is anymore.

But today I took a shower!  w00t!  LOL!  Course I nearly hacked up my lungs in the shower, but I felt good for a little bit afterward.

Actually except for sounding bad, I feel pretty good...I'm getting tired now though.  But for most of today I felt really good.  Going a long time between coughing fits... my back and abs are thankful for that.

I didn't get to use the internet much today because my provider shut me down.  I ordered a new modem and wasn't allowed to use it until 5pm.  :p  jwerks!  But that's all up and running.  or walking.  I don't know why but this seems slower than what we had even though it kept konking out.

Some lady showed up at the front door.  I looked through the peep hole.  She resembled a politician, a petition gatherer or a social worker.  Needless to say I did NOT open the door to her.  I have a policy...  If I don't know you're coming and you don't have cookies, then I don't open my door.  I'm sick and tired of everyone and their brother coming here trying to get their hands on my money.  So now I avoid them.  I don't answer the phone for numbers I don't recognize either.  Sucks for my friends with cell phones, but if they talk to my machine I'll answer them.

We had a cold snap today, so I cooked up a batch of turkey broth.  It is cooling on the back porch before I move it to the frig.  I'll finish it up tomorrow...maybe. ;o) 

Oh I found the set of bedroom furniture that I want on craigslist!  Since I can't pick it up until next week I have to wait and see if it is still available then.  sigh and tapity tapity.


  1. (Singing): Get well, get well soon, we wish you to get well!!

    I never answer the door, either, unless it's someone I know or UPS or something. And sometimes even then. Good thing you un-reversed your peephole.

    1. I KNOW! I don't want people peeping in and seeing that I'm in there ignoring them! LOL

      I do feel like Men At Work "Who Can It Be Now?" though.

  2. You should have opened the door and gotten her sick - that would teach her ;-)

    1. That's too funny! I should drill a second hole and cough through it at "intruders"...lol germ warfare!
