Hey yall, it has been a week since my last post, and boy, has it been a doozy.
Before I do my usual vent, let me take a few minutes and see how yall been doing?
If you celebrate July 4th, did you have any special plans? Have yall been taking care of yourselves? Are yall doing okay? It’s okay, to be honest and say no! I don’t always have it together myself.
You see, I’m constantly venting. I’m sending a Big Ole Hug yall way.
Now put your seatbelt on because I’m about to take you for a ride.
First, I caught the swimmer’s ear. It started as a clogged ear, but I washed my head and could feel the water seeping into my ear. Yeap, that’s how the cookie crumbled. A few days later, I had a full-blown swimmer’s ear. Yall it was so painful.
Then as I was trying to cope with the earache from hell, I thought I caught Covid. Before you call me a hypochondriac, what are the symptoms of Covid?
- Can’t taste
- YOU FEEL LIKE YOU GOT HIT WITH THE UGLY STICK
I was hitting all the signs, and my ears were clogged.
Now I’m sitting up here going down a timeline of my whereabouts, and now I’m wondering when I went to the park, was I standing in a place I shouldn’t have. Should I have not gotten gas that day? What about the grocery store? Listen, I was thinking about all my life decisions, and I was NERVOUS.
Then, Natlie and the girls were suddenly complaining of headaches and earaches. I asked them if we had Covid? They told me it had to be my allergies, NOT Covid. Well, why I can’t smell or taste anything? Why do I feel like crap? I took a Benadryl, and many of my ailments were my allergies! Yeah, I overestimated the illness.
The earache from hell never left. It got worse. The pain went into my jaw, and I couldn’t close my mouth. I will post my Ultimate Earache Remedy, I’m currently still using it, and I must say it works. Yall my earache took me out. I cried like a baby, and it has been rough. But I’m doing a lot better, and I’m just glad to be back to almost 100 percent.
Natlie and the girls are suffering from allergies, and I have been on mommy duty as well. If yall allergies are causing trouble, please pop a Benadryl. I’m still giving them Dandelion Root Tea and Nettle Leaf, but they also have upset stomachs. It makes me feel like it’s something in the air, water, and food. I don’t know what to do besides keeping the windows shut, keeping them cool, and keeping them hydrated. It’s working but a lousy way to spend the summer.
Oh, guess what, why are we in another HEAT WAVE!! Yall it is so hot. The temperature is 91-93, but the heat index is 101-105. If you are dealing with high temperatures, please drink water. We have to take better care of ourselves. I don’t mean to sound like a sitting hen or be a Nagging Nancy, but I care!
Okay, yall, I just wanted to stop by and give a heads up on my Hell Week. I missed yall, and I just wanted to chat for a bit, as always sending Big Hugs and Warm Smiles.
