20140116-072319.jpg
Well no chance of staying in my PJs today…out and about in the cold morning is my destined path this morning. As you can see I survived the visit to the doctor’s office. I will tell you about that later! For now let’s jump right into things…

Silly Me…It’s Facebook Funnies Day!

Peach State says: The Day I Get Shot!

20140114-084859.jpg

I’m feeling a bit like the guy left on the deck of a submerging sub! Heart pounding panic in the face of what lies ahead in a day filled with unknown!

A bit over the top…maybe! Nevertheless today is…

The Day I Get Shot!

How do I know? Easy…I made the appointment a week ago. “Are you shaking your head wondering what in the world is wrong with this picture?” Let me calm your fears…I am getting the Flu Shot. Feel better…I’m not! I have a minor dislike to needles and an even more profound anxiety-filled-fear of the Flu Shot. I don’t want to have a repeat of what happened the last time I got the Flu Shot!

Reader’s Digest Version:
I headed to the doctor’s office with my 3 sons to get the Flu Shot. I played the brave mom and went first and showed them there was nothing to it. “My bad!” After the four of us were finished I got to the car and had to use my inhaler. I arrived back at home, after dropping the boys back at their schools, and could not breathe. I used my inhaler and fixed a strong cup of black coffee! My back preceded to get tighter and the pain was almost severe. I sought out a relaxing shower. skipping forward…After almost four hours of trying everything I could to relieve my Asthma ( which I have had since childhood and these techniques usually work) I called a friend about borrowing her daughter’s breathing machine. “I know there is a name for it but for some odd reason I can’t remember it right now!” Sweetly she, in as calm a voice as she could use, said she would be over shortly. The boys were startled by my condition and began their helpful nursing.

“I got this…”
“You sit down…”
“Want me to rub your shoulders?…”

By the time my friend arrived I should have been at the ER but…
She set it up and stayed with me until after the treatment. She did not like the way I looked and talked to my hubby. After some deliberation three hours after the boys got home from school I was on my way to the ER. Hubby had left work and came home and could see the distress I was in. The typical wait at the ER was shortened and I was grateful. The treatments and shots were a plenty as monitors and wires began to ding and beep. Charts were updated and meds were increased. My hubby sat against the wall at the door with a creased frown. The doctor came in and nodded for my hubby to step outside. The nurse inserted another needle into an IV and then left. As she opened the door I caught a glimpse of my hubby in the hallway with a look I had never seen before. The not so mumbled voice struck my heart… Try to keep her calm and breathing steady…We’re doing all we can!

Pause…I have been to the ER several times for Asthma Attacks but this one…well, it took the cake!

My hubby returned to the room and grabbed the remote…”Want to watch something else? How about this?” I nodded…It was a rerun of NCIS and silly as it may sound it was the one where Tony is dying of The Plague. skipping forward…after what seemed like hours and hours the doctor came back in. The familiar nurse at his side removed the mask covering my face and began to take the monitor wires off. “That was a close call!” “We almost lost you!” He began his best rendition of elementary medical jargon and my ears rang. No wonder my hubby had looked the way he did. He was joking around with the doctor trying to lighten the tone in the small room. “My hubby, I now know, does not deal with seeing me on a hospital bed very well!”

With all of this being said…I have not gotten the shot since! Why is this year different? Do you watch the news?

I discussed the situation with my doctor and have been ordered to stay at the office for about an hour after the shot. Originally my 20 year old was going with me but, plans changed when my hubby got the call that his appointment at the VA had been moved to today at 11am. Wait for it…and there is a chance that he may need surgery for a hernia. “Can you say sitting on pins and needles!” I have several friends that are within 2-3 minutes from my doctor’s office should anything happen and that is quite calming. I may call one and see if she wants to come visit while I wait! Hopefully I will be able to talk with you again tomorrow and let you know what happened…

The Day I Get Shot!

Wish me luck…my appointment is at 2:30 this afternoon!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Just Feels Like a Facebook Funnies Kind of Day!

20140109-075019.jpg
After a great and slightly over the top practice, till almost 10 PM last night, with the often talked about cohorts in crime I was wide awake and refreshed. It felt like forever since our last practice due to the holiday schedule and the semi-slapstick comedy routine picked up right where it left off. The remnants of this wonderful evening are still with me this morning…except for the wide awake part! Have no fear…coffee is being made as we speak!
“Done! I even took time to grab a yogurt for breakfast!” Everything is going according to plan and it…

Just Feels Like a Facebook Funnies Kind of Day!

Well it arrived…with a bang and a boom, flood and storm, with and without football…it is 2014 and time for

HAPPY NEW YEAR…Facebook Funnies!

Before the clock had even reached midnight the continuous sounds of bursting fireworks penetrated our family home…even with a movie on! ( My family loves having a realistic movie experience so hubby installed a sound system in the living room that often sets off the glass break sensor!) We toasted and cheered the New Year and each other…then sent the youngest to bed! The rest of us were up until about 2AM…can you believe I stayed awake? Let me share one reason I was up so late…

Peach State says: But Then Again It’s Monday!

20131209-073511.jpg
The noisy clicking and clacking of raindrops seem unending while the splatter and splash leaves a visible sogginess on my screens. What a lovely day…to bad I have to go out in this cold, miserable rain.

But Then Again It’s Monday!

I sat down this morning to find myself with a checklist of sorts. My calendar, open to this weeks events, was already full as I added in the preparation To-Do list! I have something important every night…but tonight! “Of course I should consider the staying home and relaxing IMPORTANT as spending time with family is a high priority!”

Monday:
Usual morning routine,
Prepare to close E’s Design Party,
Prepare for C’s Design Party,
Go to the bank,
Routine cleaning and laundry,

Cook dinner,
Same old…same old…,
Goodnight!

Tuesday:
Usual morning routine,
Final prep for C’s Design Party,
Get Crock-Pot Dinner started early,
Minor daily clean,
C’s Design Party,
Home about 9pm and relax,
Goodnight!

Wednesday:
(Here is where the week starts getting a bit hairy!)
Usual routine for hubby’s day off,
Plan and cook dinner,
Leave for various practices…Ladies Quartet, Christmas Cantata, Praise Team,
Arrive home about 10 PM and put feet up for an hour,
Goodnight!

Thursday:
(You know the pattern for the daily grind so let’s just skip to the good stuff!)
Prepare to close C’s Design Party,
Go to the bank,
Get youngest off the bus, cleaned and dressed in presentable attire,
Leave for Hubby’s Work party,

Come home and explain to hubby why I am later than usual!
Goodnight!

Saturday:
Early morning Dress-Rehearsal at 10,

Uh oh….no football game to watch! ( running around the house doing a bad “Home Alone” imitation!)
My team did win their pivotal games and just won the SEC Championship…next the National Championship!! “Please excuse my bragging!”
Anyway…Don’t panic…I am sure I will find something to fill my time with!
Dinner and relaxation,
Goodnight!

Sunday:
Third Sunday…
(This is the busiest of Sundays and a few extra kinks have been inserted into the schedule!)
Up and out for early sound-check…church…home? I may just stay with friends….”hmmm”
(Hubby may be driving our 20 year old to my parent’s for his visit. My 20 year old will be staying with them while my 23 year old travels out of town with his job! This will be good for many reasons…my parent’s health is not good and they need someone who can drive and lift…also with my 20 year old leaving for the Army shortly after Christmas they will be able to spend so quality time with each other!)
Singing at the Lodge at 4:00 PM,
Back to church for evening sound-check followed by Christmas Cantata,
Home to put feet up…oops I forgot about dinner!
Goodnight!

I am exhausted just thinking about it…not to mention the little odds and ends not included! Wait a minute…the rain stopped! NOT…it is just a lighter rain now! I had better begin my day and let you get back to your’s!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Apologies…Facebook Funnies Have Arrived!

20131207-093722.jpg
I had to start today with my first Blog Worthy Award Winner!
I am presently working on my third oversized cup of coffee this chilly December morning and I am glad to report that my hubby made it out the door with a smile and no cross-sharp-toned-thoughts-or-words were present….this morning!
What a week! I am also glad to announce that all…”Did I say ALL of the Christmas Shopping was completed yesterday! And about that…I am so sorry that I was preoccupied and forgot to post my Funnies so without further adieu…

Apologies…Facebook Funnies Have Arrived!

The same theme seemed to radiate throughout many of my friends this week…just wait until you see:

20131207-094543.jpg
Ah…the holiday stresses are beginning to take their toll!

20131207-094643.jpg

What do you think of the new “Family Portrait”? James got braces…but you wouldn’t be able to see that! Did you like my new glasses…wait can’t see them either! The twins…they were actually going to smile! “Dang group texts!”

Alright…Relax and take a sip of…

20131207-095437.jpg
I can think of something else that would be great flowing out of that faucet….ESPRESSO!

20131207-095659.jpg
So I guess my 20 year old is once again “My Favorite”!

20131207-095845.jpg
Typically I can shower, dress, put on my make-up, fix a commuter cup of coffee, let the dog in and out, check Facebook …..etc all before my hubby can shower and get dressed. Can I get my medal now?

20131207-100221.jpg
Alright…I think this mom needs to call my friend’s plumber!

Next we will find the group of friends that are Whovians:

20131207-100648.jpg
Yep…that’s our little dance!

20131207-100739.jpg
And the ornament hanging right next to that one is a Sonic Screwdriver!

20131207-100933.jpg
Oh the places we will go!
