Let's see if we can give it a go today, because yesterday was nothing to write home about.
At least the weather in the Hoosierland won't have me freezing today along with aching all over.
The temps are expected to reach into the lower FIFTIES...shades of Spring, although this will be short-lived soon enough.
The real problem is gonna be where to put ALL that damn water from the RAIN (and thunderstorms) we're getting today, PLUS the melting snow?
Well, if some folks had not parked near culverts, then the plows wouldn't have gone around them, and the culverts wouldn't be so damn blocked with snow...and on it goes...
I don't know WHY, but here in Hoosierland, you put the culverts in the MIDDLE of the block...!?!
Back in Philly, they're all located at the intersections...makes things easier for many reasons.
Anyway, let's take this abbreviated version of my daily edification out for a spin...
*** This viral assault upon the residents of out "Fortress" has proved quite potent, although NOT impervious to defeat.
It starts out as a queasy stomach (stomach acidity for me), and then within several hours, the "puke and crap" sessions begin.
Helps to have something IN your stomach, otherwise you get those nasty-ass dry heaves.
I must say, I haven't "expressed" being sick in THIS manner for quite some time, and NO, I don't recommend it as a "dietary aid".
Wifey was off from school because of this Monday, went back yesterday, and really burned herself out doing so, therefore she took today off to get her strength back. I've just been on a nothing but ginger-ale diet for the last 48 hours.
I'm having tea today, and perhaps will try some solid food later.
Oh, and if you're thinking this illness comes with anything ELSE, as if the above wasn't enough...there are ACHES o' Plenty!
Sleeping was horrible, as could be expected, so we'll have to settle for Edisonian "cat-naps".
I think it'll take about a WEEK to work itself completely out of our systems, and it can't leave soon enough.
And if you can avoid this, by all means DO SO.
Hopefully, this will take the place of any and all other flu viruses that plan to stop by here.
*** I was going to see what the news has had to say, but we're not going to discuss those FIVE thugs that have been involved in that rolling shootout (two of which were former students of the Lovely Mrs. Bobby G.), or the stabbing at that Relax-Inn in front of several children.
We know who the freaking morons are out there, and maybe we don't have to hear about them all the time, but then again, doing so keeps the reality of what such "people" (and I use that word loosely) do in our society that makes us aware of the evil and it's intent in everyone's lives.
*** Like today's title reads...it DOES suck getting sick, especially THIS sick.
Inoculations for the BIG deals (diphtheria, smallpox and polio for example) always made sense, but you cannot keep everyone free from every disease all the time forever...not gonna happen in today's world..
People have to develop their own immunities sooner or later...that's the way the human body works.
I know before kids could get into school in my day, we HAD to have a couple vaccinations...and it wasn't a big deal.
Now, it seems people aren't bothering at all to get their kids any vaccinations AT ALL.
I can see why to some degree...substances IN the vaccines , harmful side-effects, and so on.
This will be something to watch.
*** Lastly today, I know I'm feeling better when I can concentrate on something OTHER than feeling ill, and that's always a good thing.
SO, as I slowly make my way back to the realm of the functional, know that I have not missed a beat when it comes to what's been going on.
(I've just been quietly keeping mental notes).
I plan to be back to post tomorrow, God willing, and we'll be knocking on Friday's door.
On the meantime, bop over to THE BLAZE and get a load of some of the REAL NEWS...
I promise you won't be bored!
Stay SAFE out there, America.
