Bitch, Bitch, Bitch

 Don't try to make sense of the random pictures.
They don't have anything to do with anything.

Fresh water with lemon.

I woke up dizzy before I even got out of bed yesterday, and it stayed that way for half the day. The other half of the day I was so itchy it was driving me mad. MAD, I tell you! The weird thing is it was my face that was itching.  MY FACE. No rash, bumps, no real redness...just itchy! And the rims of my eyes itched too. GAH. I was a miserable old hag. Two benedryl allergy pills helped a bit, and I took those twice yesterday. As far as the dizziness, I'm pretty sure it's an ear infection and maybe a sinus infection to go along with it. I'm a mess...a big ol' itchy, dizzy, hot mess.

I won't tell you why I think I have a sinus infection because it's gross. Okay, I'll tell you anyway. I felt like I had something "hung" way up my nose that I couldn't blow out a couple of days ago. You're already grossed out, aren't you? Stop acting like that's never happened to you. Anyway, so I held my head back and shot a bunch of saline water up both sides of my nose. The saline water came back out, of course, but it brought a bunch of stuff I can only describe as Spanish Moss back out with it.

Spanish Moss
Heh-heh-heh. Pretty cool, eh?
Except when it comes out of your face.

Aren't you glad you tuned in today?

And a big dash of cayenne pepper.

My hair is bugging me. I swear I want to shave it all off so I'm slick-headed. It's long -- longer than it's ever been. I'm mostly just wearing it in some kind of braid or ponytail all the time, which is comfortable. I think my hair just bothers me no matter what when it's this hot outside. Blech, it's hotter than Hades out there! I am not exaggerating. Hell is exactly this hot. I'm sure of it. I'm glad I won't be going there, ever.


I'm not even going to mention that fact that I'm FAT. I've outgrown my fat pants. That's how fat I am. But, again, I'm not going to mention it. Or weigh. I'm not going to weigh or mention that I'm FAT and miserable about it. I swear I'm not going to even mention it.


 An itty-bitty dog in a big bed.



A couple of people asked what the name of the plant was that I posted last. It's called a Persian Shield, and you can read about it HERE if you're interested. It's thriving in our backyard with regular watering and only partial sun.


Sooooo...I guess I'll go now and make a cup of milky Earl Grey to enjoy.
Sorry I'm such a big bitchy bummer, but sometimes that's just how it goes.
I'm aware things could be worse.
I hope you enjoy your Sunday.

  1. Sounds like you are having one of those days :(

    Hope the cup of tea helped you to feel a bit better.

  2. UGH....sounds like you need a visit to the Dr!!!! I know what you mean about what you did NOT mention! The weight thing. I am in the same boat. Too hot to feel like doing much about it now though. When I cools, I will probably go back to Jazzercise.
    Now you call first thing tomorrow morning and get in to the Dr.!!!

  3. You poor thing, when it rains it pours, well a little rain actually might help the heat a bit. you can bitch all you want honey, that is why your blog is so refreshing, it is real. I hope you feel better soon, get to the Doc for some antibiotics.
    Hugs,

  4. I'm with Kris. If it's a sinus or ear infection you probably need antibiotics. We don't mind if you complain and whine, we've all had days like that and what are friends for anyway. Dare I tell you I've LOST 30 pounds in the last month with NO drugs, no counting points and very, very little counting calories.? Actually, now that I think of it I don't count anything. And the real kicker...wait for it...no exercise! I detest sweating and I'm doing enough of that with our icky summer this year. It doesn't cost anything either. Hubby has lost 39 pounds in the same amount of time. Now I'll shut up unless you ask me to find out what we're doing. And I PROMISE I'm not trying to sell a thing. :-)
    Blessings,

  5. Oh dear! Sorry that you are having an icky horrible time. I hope that it all looks and feels a lot better very soon. If the itchy doesn't get better, definitely see the doctor, just to rule anything out if nothing else! Take care of yourself in the meantime. xx

  6. First of all, I'm a nurse so nothing you can do or say related to bodily functions, drainage, pus (yes, pus) or any other thing considered gross is gonna make me gag. Honey after 30+ years of this I have seen it all. For instance, yes, even skinny people have saggy butts, so no worry if yours is fat or thin, it will eventually sag if you live long enough. So sorry about the miserable state you have found yourself in. Could you maybe have had a reaction to something you ate? We learn and teach that a person can even take a medication for years and then all of a sudden have a reaction to it. My suggestion is that if it persists head on over to see your doctor. Sinus is miserable and if it is green stuff then there is an infection. You need something stronger than an over the counter (OTC) remedy, no doubt an antibiotic. You probably already know this, you are a smart girl. Love the pic of the Spanish moss, Halloween would be a good time to have it hanging from your nose, lol. Sorry, don't mean to make light of your misery, but in my mind's eye I can see that green stuff just hanging out. The fat thing, honey I am an expert on fat. I talked my daughter into joining Weight Watchers about 3 weeks ago, (this is only the 4th time I have joined over the last 40 years). So far she has lost 20+ pounds and me, well I'm about 11-12 pounds lighter. She will reach her goal any week now, I have about another 120 pounds to go, so I figure I will be looking good about the time I croak. It is a struggle especially if you love to cook, and love to eat what you cook. My FB page is loaded with all kinds of fattening stuff. I'm sure all my friends think I'm obsessed with food, well I am, but I have never once made even one of those recipes. Hope you get to feeling better and your week is tolerable.

  7. You poor thing Pammy Sue sounds like you may need some antibiotics, I have the same problem with the hair mine is longer than i've had it for ages and I'm just pulling it back off my face into a ponytail, I really must get something done, it looks a mess. Hope you are feeling better soon. xxx

  8. Crap...I hate days like this! I'm feelin for ya. Will it make you feel better if I tell you that we've all been there in one way or another? Health and wellness can be such a battle. I'm over 50 and it sucks that I don't have as much energy as I use to and that nothing is where it used to be! I had a mole on my collar bone my whole life....it is now on my boob! haha Throw the dumb scales out! They lie! They are not our friend! Take good care, penny x

  9. Sorry you aren't feeling well. I'm thinking that there must be some sort of pollen in the air right now that is causing problems. My back, shoulders, and one eye have been itching nonstop last night, today, and now tonight. Sorry, but I was chuckling out loud as I was reading about your woes. I just finished putting a barrette in my hair to keep my bangs out of my itching eye. It looks like a sumo wrestler hairstyle.

    I hope if you are not feeling better by tomorrow, you can get in to see a doctor very soon. Moss nose is never a good thing.

  10. Oh shoot. I just reread my comment and it said one month. Darn spell checker on my iPhone. I meant 4 months-which still ain't half bad! :-). I'll email you after Piper goes to bed.

  13. Thanks for the name of that lovely plant - what a shame its only an annual. Must see if our nursery stocks them as it would be a good time to get one with our summer coming on (thank goodness). Ollie looks very comfy in that nice big bed. He's such a cutie. Why the pepper ??? xox

  16. Fat and hot. You spying on me? You just described post-menopausal-me to a tee. So can anyone tell me why I can cough or sneeze and expell a gallon of pee, but if it feels like I gotta go, I have to work at it? Ok, I grossed you out too eh? LOLOLOL!

    Hi Pammy Sue!
    Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Allergies s--k! Don't fret about your weight. At least that's what my doc told me, but I'd be a lot happier if I could drop a few pounds!! I had long hair that was driving me nuts. I cut it off about a month ago, and OMG it's sooooo liberating!!!! Take care!! (love your blog!)

  21. Sometimes I wonder why I take the time to scroll my RSS feed and read, read, read. Then I come across your blog and you're so relate-able that you cause me to remember why the world is wonderful place. So thank you and keep on talking about your spanish moss sinuses b/c I TOTALLY get it (not just the sinus thing, but you in general...lol).
