1 day at a time.

dragged self Dr. yesterday, as I’m still feverish, still all around weak ass loser. As Jason has been saying “we anticipate harvesting May’s organs any day now…” (he’s kidding! mostly…)

Well long story short I added a few conditions to my virus, and antibiotics are now in play. I believe this is 3rd or 4th time I’ve had to take them in my adult life, and certainly the first ear infection I’ve been treated for since my teen years. I feel so young. Also? I feel a SMIDGEN better today. I hesitate to even think that I feel better, lest I anger the flu gods… but it might be true. I actually sat up and worked at computer for a few hours today, climbed stairs in one swoop (vs my 2 stairs, rest, repeat, routine)… yeah.

This? One of my all time fave blunt cards. I *LOVE* it. Because as a girl who would have to exercise at a professional athlete level + eat super low cal to ever resemble “skinny” I will always be more on the sturdy side. I’m alright with that – and if anybody has a problem with it… well read the above card.

WHY do I bring this up randomly? Is it fever induced? I don’t think so… It’s just because I’m fist pumping due to exceptional weight loss. (8lbs now, I believe)

I’ve lost more with this virus than the rest of 2011 combined with gym efforts. how do you like them apples?

Don’t worry… I’m not wasting away. I have PLENTY of fatty tissue stored up still. Is just a silver lining…

Back to bed for me.

  1. I am so sorry you are still under the weather. But you haven’t lost your sense of humor through it all. Feel better soon, May.

  2. Gee i hope you feel better soon and that the medication works. Well done with the 8lbs and just remember to take things a day at a time. (oops sorry sound like a mother)

  3. Let’s hope those antibiotics have kicked in and got rid of the nasty bugs – and good to see you haven’t lost your sense of humour ! if you’re anything like me it takes a lot to keep me from crafting for long.I suppose a positive is weight loss ! Take care x

  4. Oh May, I am so sorry you are still sick. That sucks for sure! Here’s a little funny for your day:
    “figured out why I’m fat! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my body says “for extra volume and body”. I’m going to start using “Dawn” dish soap. It says “dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove”.

    Hope you are on the mend. Blessings 🙂

  5. Actually, I’ve not crafted ONCE!!! That’s truly sick stuff. Just no mental energy I guess. I hope to get back into it ASAP!!

  6. awesome humorous take on the situation, take care and I am sure once the meds kick in you will be on your way to recovery.

  7. From a fellow “sturdy-girl” – I LOVE THAT CARD…. I would be jumping for joy at 8 lbs, too…. so sorry you’ve been SO sick… for SO long… hope the little hint at feeling better LASTS….

  8. Congratulations on the weight loss–hate that you did it the hard way. Losing weight while being sick always makes you think it was ALMOST worth it–NOT!!! I’m glad you husband stepped in and told you to stay at home and get well. You don’t want to end up in the hospital, and it sounds like this could send you there. So, lots of TLC for you!

  9. This is very important-heed these wise words of your elder fan. DO NOT OVERDUE because you feel a little bit better.These nasty bug will come back and stomp you into completely into the ground.Keep resting and drinking plenty of fluids, do just a little-repeat little more each day.I know this is the last thing you want to hear-but we don’t want you ending up in the hospital-we need your craftiness!
