November 26, 2011 - I Can't Find It!



"I can't find it" are the most common words used at our house this week. When we arrived back home, the kids came over and unloaded the pickup for us. Not knowing just where I was going to put everything, we had them pile it all along one side of the garage. The plan was to bring in a few containers each day, then decide if we'd keep or donate the items. I really have no need for two food processors, two mixers, two blenders.......well, you get the idea. But, you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. Or in this case, of mice and Granny.

I didn't plan on getting sick, but yesterday the sore throat and achy body, chills and fever, overtook me. I went to bed at 7:30 last night, and slept for 19 hours! I'm sure the stress and long hours of work the past few weeks were partially responsible for lowering my immunity. I just hope I can shake it real soon, because I still can't find anything (including my camera)!

Do you know that Annie and Otto snuggled up to me for those 19 hours and only left once....to go outside to pee! The devotion of those two is mind boggling.

  1. Ugh, sorry you're sick! We've been taking turns passing around various bugs for weeks now and I'm starting to go a bit batty. Someday we'll be healthy, right?

  3. I'm sure Mr. Granny would have snuggled up to you too if he thought he wouldn't get sick!
    ;)

    Sure hope you're feeling better soon. This has been HELL week for you!

  4. Amy, I sure hope so. I don't get sick often, but when I do, I do it right!

    Ginny, I haven't had anyone to pick on me since mid-October! I see you're in good form ;-)

    Sue, I suppose Mr. Granny will get sick anyway. He'll expect to be babied, of course. Heck, I can't even get him to bring me a cup of tea!

  5. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you're sick. It's not the right time for that. I guess there never is a aright time. Thankfully you have Annie and Otto. I bet they helped you get the rest you definitely needed.

  6. I'm so sorry! You have been working too hard, I bet. Just think, when it's done, it's really going to be done! Sending healing thoughts your way.

  8. Annie and Otto are obviously good body warmers when you are not feeling well. My Sid does that duty very well too. Hope you rebound quickly and find that stuff!

  9. Sorry to hear you got sick. Lucky for you it was at the end of the trip and not the beginning or middle. That would have been no fun.

    Take care of yourself.

  10. You better take it easy for a few days!!

    Don't you wish that you could train the dogs to help out a bit?

  11. Get well soon. I just got over a cold. Though luckily it wasn't a bad one. I'm sure you will be up and finding things again in no time.

  12. Jody, at least I got it before Christmas. I'm expecting 16 for dinner on Christmas day!

    Stefaneener, the healing thoughts are working...my fever broke around midnight last night! Unfortunately, the throat is still sore, but Mr. Granny takes that as a blessing as I'm not talking much ;-)

    ********
    Robbie, you and I never do anything half way, do we? LOL!

    ********
    Kitsap, those dogs were better than an electric blanket. My only problem was that they kept checking to see if I was still alive, and gave tongue to mouth resuscitation just to be on the safe side!

    ********
    Marcia, you are so right! It would have been terrible to have been sick while trying to pack, or on the trip home. At least everything is here at the house. It can all wait to be put away. I have like forever to do it :-)

    ********
    Robin, they kept the chills at bay for me, but I just couldn't teach them to bring me a cup of hot tea!

    ********
    Daphne, now that the stress is off of my shoulders I should recuperate quickly. Mr. Granny is buying his meals from the deli section at the grocery store for a couple of days, and I'm only getting out of bed to keep in touch with all of you guys. Everyone will just have to take care of themselves for a couple of days.

    I wish the kitchen floor would mop itself :-(

  13. I hope you get to feeling better. Your have had a busy few weeks and you probably needed the rest.

  14. Kris & Mrs. Pickles, I'm feeling better today. At least well enough to be out of bed and working to put a few things away. I'm not going to overdo it though!

  15. Granny, step AWAY from the toasters, food processors, etc... you need some rest! Take care of yourself and get well :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOL, Erin! OK, I spent 80% of the day playing Bejeweled2 on line, and only 20% of the day sorting out toasters, food processors, etc. How's that? I'm completely out of groceries, so I MUST get to the store tomorrow.

  17. I'm glad you're on the mend!! You definitely had one hell of a week of selling, traveling, packing, unpacking.. sheesh.. it's making ME tired!

    lotsa hugs!

  18. Wendy, a couple of days of rest did wonders. I still have a cold, but the really bad stuff (aches, fever, etc.) are gone. I'm ready to get back to work unpacking and putting away!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Kelly, I'm feeling better now. I'm at that runny nose/tickly throat stage but past the chills and fever. I even went grocery shopping today!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Glad things went well with the sale and that while not a smooth ride back, you are safe. Feel better. :-)

  21. Toyin O., I'm feeling much better, thank you. I'm just at that point where I cannot step too far away from the Kleenex box! Aches and chills are gone, so I can get back to unpacking now.

  23. HangKebon, don't feel badly about not having everything unpacked after two months. We moved into this house, from a much larger one, more than 20 years ago. I know there are still some boxes in the attic that were never unpacked! If we ever bring them down, it will be like opening a time capsule!

  24. I hope you are feeling better by now!

  25. Hi, David! Yes, feeling much better, but still can't put the Kleenexes down :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am so glad you are feeling better. Sweet, sweet puppies watching over you like that.

  28. I'm feeling fine now, Kelli. Just busy with Christmas preparations and suffering from blogger's block! It won't be long until spring planting fever takes over, then I'll be back full force :-)

  29. I was hoping you were ok. I am sure you are looking forward to Christmas with your family this year. It certainly is a busy time of the year. The seed catalogs are arriving and I have no time for them ::sigh::

  30. Rachel, although my cold is finally going away (according to my son's doctor, this particular virus is taking about four weeks to run its course), Mr. Granny woke up sneezing and with a sore throat. Just like mine started. That means he'll probably be sick for Christmas :-(
