Weekend is Over?

Okay, the weekend is over. My dog is coming down off of his doggy downers. Hopefully he will eat somthing now and not look at me like he hates me.

We spent Friday afternoon at my SIL house. It was nice for a while. We swam in her pool, it was a bit cool, she keeps hers at about 85 degrees, while I prefer 90 or more. Played some water volleyball. Then I ripped the toenail off of my big toe, in the pool. I was even sober. (that is probably the problem)

After Not A Grampy wrapped it up like a mummy I was relegated to sitting beside the pool listening to family stories about past holidays.

Did I mention I have been fighting a cold all last week? You know, just the runny nose and annoying cough? We came home early Friday to be here with the dogs who can't stand loud noises, in time for the neighborhood firework shows. Yes, plural. Why should I go somewhere with lots of crowds, pay money when I can stand in my backyard and watch the rednecks blow things up? So that's what we did. Along with a dog in my lap cowering from the noise. At least he wasn't barking and whining as he usually does.

Saturday we hosted the Coke Zero NASCAR Party. Had friends over, watched the race, ate good food, swam in the pool, coughed and hacked. Lost a lung later Saturday/Sunday morning. But, heck I still have one, right?

Sunday was the planned crash day. Which we did. Put a roast in the crock pot, watched 10,000 BC on DVD. Had two glasses of wine, ate dinner and fell asleep at 7pm. Woke up at 9pm went to bed. Coughed up another lung all night long. Moved to the recliner so Not A Grampy would get some sleep.

Now, I am sitting at home today, taking my vacation day that was planned too sick to even sit by the pool.

If anyone finds my lungs somewhere could you send them back to me??? I think I may need one at least sometime today.

Sounds very similar to our 4th of July fun. We also hibernated in our pj's and watched the races along with the neighborhood fireworks. I do hope you get to feeling better very soon. God knows if you have what I had a couple of weeks ago I will pray for you and your lungs.

treasia-did you happen to find one of my lungs?

Treasia said...

Of course I found it. Do you not remember? You cheerfully donated it to me when you found out how sick I was recently. I guess when I'm done with it I can donate it back if you insist. Indian giver!

CRAP! I found a pair of lungs late last night, I listed them on eBay and they sold already! Soooo Sorry!

Maybe you should think about tattooing your name on your remaining organs so that this kind of thing can be avoided in the future?

Not a Granny said...

treasia-that was only one of them. I will let you keep that one, if bluepaintred will return the one she sold on ebay.

blue--honey, of course they are tattood...dolphins, with Not a Granny underneath the dolphin...
