I feel like I'm back in the land of the blogging...

I hesitate to say that things are calming down because as soon as I do, all H.E.double toothpicks will break loose. We stayed home for the weekend...that was a tremendous help.  And being the fair weather fans that we are, Hank and I have decided to boycott the Clemson game next weekend and let Lorelai have our parking pass and tickets to give away.  I asked a friend last night, "So, is it the players or the coaches?" and he replied, "Yes."  Sad, sad, sad...

So, going with a "we aren't as young as we used to be" theme.  On Friday afternoon, Hank had to lie down on his belly and reach down into the pool to grab the vacuum thingy that had come loose. To make a long story short, he was uncomfortable Friday night and after going to the farm on Saturday and lifting 50 lb bags of deer corn, he came home early in a fair amount of pain.  I gave him a Lortab left over from my root canal but he hurt all night long.  This morning he went to the local doc in a box.  Thank goodness nothing was broken or cracked, but his ribs are bruised and the muscles inflamed.  Trying to keep him still is practically impossible. Not that I'm the best nurse in the world.  I woke up around 2 AM with a headache and asked him if he wanted another Lortab while I was getting advil...he did.  When I walked back upstairs with the medicine and water, I realized that I'd knocked back the Lortab and only had the advil in my hand.  The bright side is that we both slept really well for several hours.

I haven't had much time to get out the Halloween decorations but wanted you to see the one thing I have put out.  I saw this on another blog last year and just had to order one for myself.   These are "The Strange Belongings of Permilia Sickfrits" purchased online from Hootin Annies. If you're a do it yourselfer, you can purchase a kit.  Me?  I went for the already done version.  Jump over for a visit...she has really cute things.

Aren't the "strange belongings" just magically delicious???


  1. I had to laugh about the "we're not as young as we used to be"...yesterday DOTR tried to climb up on a very tall ladder with a chainsaw to take down some dead branches. I was putting the cushions from the pool furniture away for the year and I could hear J4 screaming from the other side of the house.....DAD, STOP.....DAD, STOP.....DAD, was hilarious in a very bad way. J4 was trying to hold the ladder, dodge the branches falling down on his head (and keeping an eye out for a dropped chainsaw, no doubt!) I said that was more ladders for you. Too old, too fat and too careless. Ugh. Men.

  2. Delurking to say....glad you're back to blogging and I just love your Halloween decor!

  3. You made me laugh with your story of knocking back the Lortab but I am sorry that your hubby hurt his back. Girl, I have had a bad headache for two days too:( Here is hoping to a better week. Although I will say that having FSU beat Miami and SC beat Florida, we had a wonderful Saturday!

  4. No, we are not as young as we used to be, but life is good, so I am not complaining!!! Love your Halloween decor. The witch's hat and shoes are adorable!!! Glad things are settling down a bit for you and hopefully things will stay that way, so you can enjoy things this fsll. Have a wonderful week. Love & blessings from NC!

  5. was it wrong to laugh really, really, really hard about your little "medication error" Nurse Belle?

    I do hope your honey is on the mend! That sounds so painful.

  6. Got a chuckle about the meds mix-up....

    Cute Halloween pics - I do more of a Fall theme more so than the Halloween theme, but this year, I've only gotten the flag up, and hubby did that! I need to get with the program or it'll be time to decorate for Christmas!!!


  7. Sorry hubby is hurting. Funny about the med mixup though.

    Love your decorations...too cute.


  8. An accidental drugging! I love it! I also love your table decorations. I might try to get the same stuff and copy you for next year.


Please makes me HAPPY!
