Just My Luck

Who comes down with the Terrifying Creeping Crud this time of year?

Not just once, but twice?

It may be 85 degrees outside, but inside today I am wrapped up in a blanket, with my humidifier on, chugging Airborne cocktails in hopes of ramping up my immune system.

And avoiding another doctor visit co-pay and $40.00 antibiotic.

My head hurts, my body aches. My tonsils feel like they are stuffed with rocks. I spent most of yesterday sleeping. And I am still tired to the bone.

Yeah. I’m just a total delight to be around today.

Here’s hoping tomorrow will be better. And healthier. Much healthier.

But in our never ending hope to be able to afford Parker, I did manage to list some more stuff on Ebay. Lots of CTMH cardstock. Lots of CTMH stamp pads and ink pad refills. A darling Hanna Andersson Halloween outfit that my Mom bought for Kenny last year too. You can find all of our stuff here:


I also have a beautiful new handmade quilt to add to our ParkerDoodles page. You can find the link to ParkerDoodles in our left hand sidebar.

Off to another exciting adventure with my salt water gargle.

  11. Tammy, can you send me an email to dkswife(at)aol(dot)com? I would like to discuss contributing “things” i.e., my handmade wares for your e-bay store. If you will send me the e-mail, I will explain further. I h0pe I am not coming across as cryptic :)
