Alive...barely.

Just in case y'all were wondering.

Funeral on Sunday. (I took notes)

Baptism of a niece on Sunday. (Torturous meanness from my mother and an asthma attack that is still happening from smokers both at the funeral and the baptism.)

A week of not being able to breathe laced with a migraine that could bring that burliest of manly men to their knees. Add a dash (oh who am I kidding, my toilet and I are now on INTIMATE terms) of vomiting and light and noise sensitivity and you have me! The life of the party I assure you.

So fear not faithful readers. I will be back.

I just need to get over this pesky heart failure crap WITHOUT an inpatient hospital stay.

Cuz hospital food sucks.

Oh, and in case anyone was curious...it took a lot of drugs and a pair of dark sunglasses just for me to be able to be upright long enough to type this out.

So I will leave you with a little funny that happened on my recent trip to Disney.

We were in the boat at Small World when a little boy of some foreign origin (they weren't speaking English) really, really had to pee. The dad lifted him over to the side of the boat and the little boy did his best fountain impersonation. For a little squirt he had a good arc and did a damn good job of not getting any in the boat. I guess where they were from, any port in storm would do. Water is water right?

Yet another reason why you should keep your hands inside the boat at all times.

And I'm glad you didn't fall off the face of the earth...because I was worried that was the case. My snark is starving. Is yours?

:( I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I can so relate to the migraines. If I knew where you lived, I'd bring you one of my lovely save-the-day migraine pills. That is, if it wouldn't interact with anything else that you take. That would NOT be good for a first meet!
Hope you're back up to par soon!

I'm only going to ask you this once but I will ask very nicely...

Please don't die.

I am just getting to know you and I have found that I like you a lot. I would be very upset with you if you died, so please do your best not to do that, okay?

Too cute about 'fountain boy'. See, another reason to live, to share stories like that. ;)

Hope you are better soon.
