Don't you worry 'bout a thing

I have been dreaming of living someone else's life. It has to be someone else's, it doesn't involve any problems, issues, or gut-stirring worry. It's getting to be rather enjoyable though, I must admit, and I don't want to wake up. It IS me, in that dream, but I don't recognize this family, and they don't expect the world from me. I'm rather hard to recognize also, I suppose due to the lack of worry all over me. I like it, and I want it. It would be sad to have to leave my family in search of this one, don't you think?

So I did have the flu the other day, or some damned bug. I am not good at throwing up, I never have been...and this time was no exception, plus I had the added bonus of trying not to hurt my neck, which only hurt it further. I knew I had done something wrong when afterwards and for awhile still, I was seeing double. It went away finally, but I didn't like that part. I'm better now, and my eyes are better now, but none of it was fun. I made it to work yesterday but it was difficult, but by the afternoon, I really was feeling better.

I get to deal with another five inches of snow on the ground this morning! Yes! You all know how I love, love, LOVE the snow. It generally does snow here, but I can't remember a winter like this, not for a very, very long time. I have heard many times that this year had been brutal all over, and it is disheartening to think that we are not even one month into the actual winter season. Blech.

All things are ticking along here as usual, I can't exactly write that they are ticking along well, but as usual seems to fit okay. We are all basically okay...I am getting fed up with many things but I am not one to spill all my guts in public, so okay, I am, and I will but this morning is not the time. Suffice it to say, that I'm okay--everyone in my world is okay. Who can ask for more? It's probably just the winter blues, and I have to admit, I have it bad this year.

I hope that each of you are enjoying your winter days, at least better than I am. This too shall pass...this too shall pass..this to shall pass...Is this the part where I click my heels together? Oh wait---I think I have my biblical lines mixed with Oz. In any event...Good day!

My oldest is sick as a dog and I had to drive to his apartment last night in rush hour and it was crazy. He probably lives 20 miles from me and it took me more than an hour to get there. GRRR. I didn't want to leave him but he was too sick to get in the car and come home with me. I haven't heard from him this morning and I don't want to call because I'm afraid I'll wake him. Anyway, he has enough gingerale and jello to make it through until tomorrow.

Thank you for all your kind thoughts that you've left on my blog. It helps to know that there are people out there that do care.

i'm first again.. nannny nanny boo boo... BWA HA HA

but does that mean that i have any words of wisdom to spread throughout your land of biblical oz??
not this morning. maybe later. i'll let ya know if anything wonderful comes to me later.

anyhow....just cuz your last experience with a few beers didn't go too well, doesn't mean the next won't... so... my suggestion would be perhaps a few beers and maybe a night with taladaga nights on the dvd player???
surely you have seen that ??
if you haven't-- the time has come.

i hope you can enjoy at least a part of your day.

take care...

It will get better Jamie. And we all dream of living someone else's life. I think it would be fun for a while. Something good to daydream about. What would be your ideal life? Mine would involve an island and a housekeeper, to start. And no winter, although I live in a part of the country that's been mild.

You deserve a great day, you really do.

Cheryl said... could order the light bulb that helps with SADD (2 D's?) over the net. It couldn't hurt.

Hey Jamie, When you find that family with no problems, issues or gut stirring worry, could you let me know and I will become your sister :)

Oooh throwing up is the worst isn't it? This too shall pass....keep repeating that and what the heck, throw in a few heel clicks if you think that will help.

Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I'm sorry, Jamie. Being sick is miserable enough without the toll it takes on the rest of your body.
We don't have snow here and I am now glad for it.

I have definitely wanted other peoples lives before, but I think I'm pretty happy dealing with this one.

I hope things get better for you. Take care of that neck.

Hey first of all, how are you doing?

I quite like your dream actually :) I wish I can dream of something like that, instead of the same coffee cup - oh yeah I've been dreaming about this coffee cup for the 10000th times, it isn't my coffee cup, yet it repeats itself so often in my dream! ARGH!

I'm with you on the winter. Holy shit, Nebraska and Iowa are really getting socked with the white stuff this year, aren't we?


I promise not to say one damn word of complaint in July about the heat. I just want to be warm again.
