This is the first day back to some semblance of normalcy for me since my emergency surgery that was supposed to keep me out of work and off my feet for about a week (a week and a half tops), but as we know nothing in life is guaranteed.
I felt great and was ready to get back to the A to Z Challenge, school work, and even work, which was my plan; but unfortunately my body had other plans for me. A few days after I was discharged complications set in and back to the doctor and hospital I went. A fever, 101, low enough; but never looks good after you’ve had any type of medical procedure and a bit or rather a lot of vomiting and some other stuff I dare not mention here.
By the time I got to the doctors office my fever had climbed to 102.4 and the decision was made shortly there after for me to head to the hospital for some tests. Go straight to the hospital do not pass go Read the rest of this entry
This weeks WP Daily Post Prompt is:
I start everyday with this song, which help some get in the right frame of mind to deal with whatever comes up. “God is Good” by Regina Bell.
“Crazy” by Gnarles Barkley probably really sums up my week in a nutshell. I believe I work with four of the unhappiest women in the world. They are full of drama and literally will drive you mad, if you let them. You know that old saying, ”Misery loves company.” That’s them and they’re not happy unless you’re miserable too. And let me tell you they do everything in their power to make you just as miserable as they are.
This is actually my favorite version, as it’s haunting and more serious than the uptempo one; which is more fun and puts a smile on your face.
I don’t know if this really describes how my week went, but it definitely describes how I felt at some point during the week — “Some Nights” by Fun Read the rest of this entry
This is actually a follow up to a previous post ‘Your Guess is as Good as Mine”, which was in response to a Daily Post prompt to write down the first thing you thought about that morning.
I woke up around 4:30 yesterday morning with an insatiable need to go to the bathroom and while I peed the McDonald’s “Fishy, Fishy” song made an unwelcome debut in my head. I was slightly offended by this invasion, since I don’t eat McDonald’s. I couldn’t help but laugh that this campy song would invade my head at such an incredibly inappropriate time.
Then after that randomness my head was flooded with more randomness — quotes from perhaps one of the best movies of all time — “The Princess Bride”. Yep that’s right, “The Princess Frikin’ Bride”.
As you wish. . .
then there was . . .
You are the brute squad
and finally . . .
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
So, I head back to bed with “Princess Bride” quotes swirling around in my head and the McDonald’s “Fishy, Fishy” song as background music. I tried desperately to go back to sleep since I had to be up in less than two hours, but the more I tried the more “Fishy, Fishy” bore itself into my head.
I tried my own version of replacement therapy. Picked another song from my brain box — Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”.
There’s a fire starting in my heart.
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bringing me out the dark
“Damnit!” was just one of a few expletives I used in my futile attempt to get that infernal “Fishy, Fishy” song out of my head.
Needless to say, I never made it back to sleep. I got up at 6 am and headed for the shower, and I’ll be damned there it was again. I guess I should just embrace the “Fishy, Fishy” song.
Alright today I decided to tackle two challenges in one post. The Daily Post Prompt: Places and the Trifecta weekend challenge of writing a piece using: 1) only 33 words and 2) it had to be in first person. So here it or rather they are. Enjoy!
I never yearned for writing our names in the sand or skiing or camping as long as she was here. Now she’s gone — that’s all I long for, and her at my side.

So here are this weeks to Five Question Friday (5QF).
1. What was the most productive thing you have done this week?
Not choke the living daylights out of a couple of my coworkers. Honestly.
And homework. Since I decided to go back to school and get a master’s in Adult Education its work, work, work. I’ll be glad when I can go out and have some fun, fun, fun.
2. Enjoying the winter or ready for spring?
Well since we haven’t had any snow, I’m ready for spring. I was really hoping for one snow storm, but not Snowmageddon snow.
The thing with Spring though is that it comes with everything that I’m allergic to. Remember that movie The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Read the rest of this entry
After the Daily Prompt: Far From Normal (which was quite a bit of fun to sit down and think of some fun facts about me to share), I thought it would pretty cool if I continued this from time-to-time. I discovered My Little Life and she posts five questions for you to answer every Friday.
So, here it goes.
I’m not sure I would call this a hobby, but for some people it is. I want to learn to skydive. I am horrifically afraid of heights. Step stools scare me, but for some reason I want to go skydiving.
2. What do you wish you could have delivered to your house but does not deliver?
This is a toughie as most stuff I want to have delivered can be delivered. I think I will have to go with Baskin Robbins Jamoca Ice Cream with caramel sauce. Oh dear just writing this wants me to go on my way home.
3. What’s your favorite snow day activity? Inside and out?
I don’t have just one outdoor/indoor activity. It all depends on how much snow we get. I enjoy making a good snow ball or snow man, and of course snow angels. If it’s not going to amount to enough for that than I revert to sticking my tongue out and letting the snow fall on my it. My favorite inside activities would include curling up on the sofa with a good book or movie or take a nap.
4. Would you meet a stranger from an Internet dating site?
I’ve already done that. Would I do it again? I did. Each date was really nice, but there have been a few that gave me the creeps. Even though they didn’t turn into boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, there are some that I still have as friends today. But it’s something that you definitely have to be careful about. Always, always, always meet in a public place and females never get in his car or go back to his place or follow him anywhere.
5. If you had to spend 35 hours in a car with 4 other people, who would you choose?
Ghandi — talk about his philosophy
Steve Jobs — would love to discuss how he made it seem you need an Apple something for day-to-day living
Ellen Degeneres or Whoopi Goldberg — I guarantee you, we’ll all need a good joke and a laugh if we’re in a car for 35 hours
Aretha Franklin — because we’re going to need somebody that can hold a note
Andy Warhol — so he could immortalize our shenanigans. Because there will be shenanigans, I guarantee that
