I'm Back! (Or at least I'm on my way...)

Hey all - for the first time in 14 days I am starting to feel like me again!

Yay!

I'm off the sleepy-happy pills - which is good. As much fun as it was to love everyone, there were things that I missed...
Like staying awake.
Being able to drive a car, so that I wasn't dependent upon other people for every little thing.
Like staying awake... (or did I already say that one?)

So that's the good news.

The bad news - turns out that my nasty viral inner ear infection was indeed contagious. And Bubba's got it now. Just call me Typhoid Mary. And I feel guilty, guilty, guilty - since I now know just how much labyrinthitis sucks. (Just thought I'd throw in the technical term, just for funsies...)
I am more than ready for the dizziness to leave the building....

Even though I'm off the dreamy meds, I still feel a little off kilter. It's like the last 7 days didn't happen. I mean, obviously they did for everyone else, but it was like being in a state of suspended animation or something. Nothing got done around the house. Not. One. Single. Thing.
YIKES!

Also - I've not checked email, or read a blog, or anything in that long either... I plan on rectifying that today. I see that I've got a bulging email in-box, which I suspect is full of sweet thoughts (thank you!) and spam (no, thank you...)
I can't wait to get caught up on what y'all are up to, as well. I've missed everyone (if that makes any sense at all? To miss a friend you've not necessarily had a chance to meet yet???)

In addition to needing to get caught up around the house (oh! the laundry! I think the poor Scheckster has been wearing the same bathing suit - around the clock - for the last 5 days. Got to love summer...) and wanting to get caught up with all my lovely, lovely blog friends, I am itchy to do something crafty. It's been a long time since I actually made anything... A really, really, really long ass time... I think I'll use that as the "carrot at the end of the stick" for getting some of the stuff that needs to get tackled, tackled...

Oh - and look what Publix started carrying!!! Bubba found these for me, before I gave him the ear plague... (I really need to work on my "thank yous")


You know how I love them so... And the Minis may be my favorite yet - they are practically perfect in every way...

I am so glad to see this post!!!! I was about one day away from getting in my little car and driving south.
You've been out of it for how many days? Did you hear about Paris? Oh, you've missed so much...you lucky girl.

Welcome back. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Hope Bubba recovers soon. Next time we are in the US I'm looking for moon pies. They just have me intrigued now.

African Kelli said...

I am so, so pleased you are feeling better. I've been keeping you in my prayers. I'll add Schecky now too! Enjoy those moon pies. :)

MINI Moon Pies??? What will they think of next? Haven't see those -- but I'll for sure be on the lookout. Glad you're feeling better. Hopefully, if Schecky's been in his swim suit, he's also been in the pool and the chlorine will protect him from your bug.

So glad you're back!!!

Y'know what's weird? My husband just came down with an ear infection. Isn't it supposed to be rare for an adult to have ear problems like you, Bubba, and my hubby? (though it's just a plain infection over here, no dizziness etc.)

editrix said...

So glad to hear that you're on the mend (sorry about Bubba, though). Hope health reigns supreme in the Cookie household soon!

Katkat said...

I'm so glad that you are feeling better! Oh man I would eat that whole box!!!!!

Chara Michele said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better!! Poor Bubba though...

MOON PIES!!!!!!

Renee said...

That sounds like no fun at all. Here's to everyone being well!

beki said...

I'm so happy to hear from you (or would that be see? read?)! I was getting worried.

rohanknitter said...

That sounds like one nasty virus. Never heard of such a thing.
It's weird to have time passing and be so out of it, isn't it!
SO glad to hear you are coming out of the fog. Enjoy your mini moon pies
; )
OK, I just did a double take when I saw what I had to type in for "word verification" : fusckew

Practically perfect - just like Mary Poppins.

Glad you're back to being yourself. Aidin has some viral thing - I'm hoping the rest of us don't get it.

And I'm sure the Scheckster has a few more days of wear left in the swim suit. :)

"Ear Plague" made me giggle (the wording, not the actual ailment). Glad you're among the living again. Missed your posts.

XOXOX

So glad to see you're feeling better!

And you've convinced me to look for Moon Pies now....yum!

Kim said...

I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better :)

YEA! Glad that you are on the mend! Get all the way better soon and have some fun with your boys. (you know after the plague has left your house :)

Seren said...

Oh, LLA! I'm so glad you're better. I'm checking in after too long away, and so I get to say "So sorry to hear!" and "Whew!" in one comment. Best wishes for continued recovery all around!

I'm so glad you're on the mend! Yea!

Please don't send that ear funk thing to Alabama.

We have enough problems as it is! ;-)

Mini Moon Pies? Oh, how I covet thee!

Hey, my little brothers both work at a Publix in Florida. Maybe they can send me a box!

Hey, I can relate to being behind. I'm just getting around to reading a bunch of blogs too. We won't discuss the state of my house...
