Week’s End, A Recall

This week had everything.


Mostly it had rain.

Sunday had me lounged with curry and the final episode of The Americans.



Monday brought me a huge file and a great deal of typing. I drank vats of coffee and ate tons of cherries. Also, there were Tootsie Rolls in the conference room.


I found out the dry cleaner close to work offers pick-up and delivery service.

Tuesday, Oh Tuesday. I woke up with a weather headache and my shoulder was tryina kill me.
Mid-day, the office manager distributed smoothie pops and I got toasted coconut. Yum! When people text how your day is going, always send them a demonstrative selfie.


I worked late but it was worth it, cause my boss finally signed the thing.
My mother spilled some delicious gossip. I still smile when I think about it.
The Mister said we should meet for coffee on the way home, so we did.

The boy one came to town, but he wasn’t well enough to join me for kiwi margaritas dinner that night.
The Mister and I made out in his new car.
We’d all been rockin out to AC/DC in the driveway…

I turned to The Mister and asked, “Why are there kids in this car?”
“We can make them go away,” he said.
And we did. They’re fast, our kids.

Then we played MarioKart.
I was pleased Tuesday tried to make good.


Wednesday, I caught one of my hydrangeas blooming.


Y’all, I haven’t gardened the way I usually do. It got too hot way too fast. From snow to sweltering. Course, here we are, the first week of summer, and the temps have dropped to be more what they shoulda been to begin with.
I worked late again and then made black n’ blue salads. Papaw came to visit.

Then sickness came to call. You ever notice how sometimes your head isn’t sick, but your body is, so you be like “Mind over matter. I can get stuff done,” but then when you don’t give your body the rest it’s asking for, your head gets sick, too, takin your eyes and your comprehension and then it’s all like “WE’RE DONE. LIE THE FUCK DOWN.”?
I have noticed.

Thursday betrayed me. I had to leave work early. I probably should not have gone in.

Last night, I’m happy to report all five of us, plus three cats and the dog, had some nice on-the-bed quality time. Animal Vines promote family unity and heart happiness.

My big plans HAD involved leaving work early today to take the kids on an outing, but instead, I’ve had an exciting day of rest and hydration. Le foof.

Nevertheless, It IS Friday.
Happy Friday Everyone!

  1. Hope you feel better very soon. Having the kids – the gravy of Life. I guess pets are the garnish.

    Sorry you’ve had the ailments, and hope you feel better now. …That smoothie ice-cream on a stick looks so good! My mister chased down the ice-cream man’s truck yesterday, and got us ice-cream sandwiches! Yay! … Beautiful flower! … Sounds wonderful to have y’all’s whole gang up in the bed together for awhile! Happy Friday & weekend! πŸ™‚

    Cherries, The Americans, and family time. Sounds perfect. But not so much the illness. Hope you’re feeling better. And oh, how I miss Stefan.

    Feel better, Joey—no sickness on the weekend! We don’t have food in my department. I stuffed my mouth once when the phone rang. “Keep talking; I’m still chewing.” heh heh. I knew who was calling…..Happy weekend to you!

      Thanks! I sometimes struggle (like typing with one hand while I eat a popsicle with the other) but for the most part, it’s fine. Last week, office manager put a call through, “So-and-so for you,” and I had to tell her “Bwut I’ve got a mwthfull of pwndcake.” LOL So-and-so had to wait a moment.
      My bosses order lunch in plenty and I like it πŸ™‚

    One of the “bad” things about working for myself from home is that the “manager” never brings me treats, although I don’t like coconut so if that was the only offering, it’s all good. Definitely yes to AC/DC and christening the new car. Hoping you are feeling better.

      Clearly you need to put your office manager cap on and get you some strawberry? smoothie pops πŸ™‚ I know there was strawberry, but I stopped listening after coconut!
      I’m on the mend, thanks!

      Haha! Thanks πŸ™‚ She’s made me a lot of tea — she makes the best tea. I think it’s excessive honey and I turn a blind eye and suck it right down!

    T’is Saturday and my adventure is getting a new toilet installed. Goodie, goodie gum drops. But I shouldn’t complain – it’s too hot outside so might just as well wait on the plumber! Yum – coconut sounds good but chocolate dipped would be better, right? Have a nice weekend!

    Up until Thursday it all sounded pretty great to me … and then Friday swooped in for the save after tripping and falling on Thursday πŸ™‚
    All in all, I’d say you had a marvellous week and I hope the weekend is even better!

  17. Haha! I’m hydrating too. I had a fever of 101.2 and pains that almost had me going to a Mash Unit. That was only one event in a string of events. I’m on the mend …. and so are you!! BUG HUGS! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    I love hydrangeas. Mine did not survive me. 😦
    I’m obviously behind on reading. I see that you were feeling better, but not quite up to par. I hope that the days since then have been good to you. πŸ™‚

    I hope you can welcome back wellness soon. Until then rest well. Lying down is the kindest thing I can ever do to my body! I highly recommend it!
