Taking A Few Days Away~A Short Break (I Hope)

You remember last week I told you
my stomach was bothering me?
Well, it is no better.
I went to the doctor yesterday.
Apparently, I don't have a virus so that is
ONE GOOD THING.
That means I haven't infected any of the kids.

I am on a course of treatment for a few days
so I am going to snuggle down,
watch some crappy old movies,
thumb through my Christmas magazines & books
and stay under a heated blanket
because I have chills.

Don't worry-
I will be fine-I just didn't want to leave you hanging..
waiting on me and wondering where I am.

Guess my new curtains will wait a few days, too.
Darn it!

I'll be back soon to regale you with
a few more snickers pictures-
like this one!
Personally-I have always loved a man in a bow tie.
I don't usually expect to see one in Walmart though!
See you shortly!

Gina said...

Feel better soon! If it weren't for you're being sick, it almost sounds like what you've got planned for resting could be fun! :)

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Black and white movies have more vitamins ! : )

Dee said...

I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. Taking some time off from blogging is good although you will be missed. Big hugs and be blessed... :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Take care and REST! Don't worry about anything either! That's doctor's orders! Sweet hugs, Diane

Susie said...

Get well soon, Diana! Don't watch crappy movies; watch good ones! How about Christmas classics?
Hugs,

Nellie said...

Sending along my very best wishes for a speedy recovery, Diana. I hate that you are still being bothered by this! xo Nellie

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Good luck! Do as told. And rest. and watch lots of crappy movies. (Oh some of those Hallmark ones are... ding-dang-crappy, so they will fill the bill! -gigggles-)

Listen to your docs. And come out the other side, happily happy.

Hey, I did! Last Sun I went in hospital, with what I feared were Heart Symptoms. After all sorts of wonderful tests, came out, with a clean bill of Heart Health. !!!!!!! You will end with a nice, happy, tummy bill of health!!!

Actually, that "stomach bug" idea, isn't so. Usually people ate something "turned" or etc. Check with your docs. Isn't the "stomach virus" a false but usable term??? :-)

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Hope you feel well soon, Diana!

My Garden Diaries said...

So sorry to hear that you are still not well. I hope you have a diagnosis though and that it isn't going to last long.

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Take care, keep warm and STOP with those photos! LOL! Is that a man or woman???
warmly,
deb

Vee said...

Awww...the good news is you have a virus and the bad news is that you must rest and watch sappy movies and read some books. Feel betterer soon! (Are these pics for real? Is that guy really wearing a bra and bowtie with his pink underwear showing? Crazy!)

Japolina said...

Feel better sweetie. DO NOT watch that new julia roberts/meryl streep flick that is on hbo right now. (something orange county) It is so sad. They just yell at each other the whole time.

Why don't you see if you can binge on OUTLANDER...Ooh la la....men in kilts will wash away the thought of your walmart photo

Katie Clooney said...

Diana... hope you are feeling your old chipper self soon! Take care.

Patty Patterson said...

Get better! And I'm glad you didn't infect the children. But - a virus might have been easier. I don't know what you have but viruses normally run their course and you are fine in a couple of days. I hope the treatment you are on works well with no side effects.

Musings from Kim K. said...

Get better soon! Stay cozy!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Rest up and feel better my friend!!

Stephanie said...

Enjoy your break, pretty lady, and rest up! I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling all that great.... Sending you hugs and prayers!

Kelly said...

Relax, and refresh as you mend dear Diana! Hopeful you will be ready to conquer your world once more! I am not to sure if shopping at your Walmart may have something to do with your aliment! Yikes!!!! ; )
Prayers coming your way.<3

Teresa@magazineyourhome said...

Cuddle up with your blankie and stay warm as a bug in a rug, praying you'll be feeling better soon so you can eats lots of turkey and pumpkin pie. Sending hugs your way.

Get plenty of peaceful rest, and I'll keep you in my prayers.
Bow - tie. Sheesh!

LostRoses said...

Hope you feel better soon! It was so cold last week I snuggled up on the sofa under a warm blanket for three days, and I wasn't sick! Did watch everything on my DVR though. :-)

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Sorry you are feeling yucky - sometimes you just have to take the time to rest with your feet up. This time of year the 'bugs' are getting passed around - I woke up with laryngitis this morning - which made my hubby very happy :) He tried to appear sympathetic but I saw the happy dance he did when he walked away.....Enjoy those movies. I like a man in a bow-tie, too, but I think the sunhat really adds to the whole ensemble. xo Karen

Suzan Sweatman said...

Take some time for you Diana - I don't know where you get your energy - but your body is telling you to take a break ( NANA Diana NEEDS to take a break LOL )
XOXO

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Take plenty of time to rest up. Hope you feel better soon. :) That Walmart pic is hilarious! Such characters!

Pura Vida said...

I'm almost jealous...would love to watch some old movies...sure hope you feel better soon!

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

Later.... I'm backkkkkkkkkkkkk....

Don't know what your tummy symptoms are, but... Over time, I had just about all gut issues possible. Complete with the gas and all the other stuff. I began referring to it, as IBS. I had 'em, until I went Gluten Free. On my own.

Never tested. Don't need to be. Because! After some time, Gluten Free, I was WITHOUT all those GUT ISSUES!!!!

I was tested for Lactose Intolerance, and am positive. But I can have SOME dairy, if I take over-the-counter Lactaid. Not much dairy, but some. But there are wonderful Goat Cheeses and Coconut Milk and etc. So L/F is not horrible.

NOOOOOO pill for Gluten though. If you are Sensitive, you can NOT have ANY Gluten. But the no pain and no diarreah and no gas and no urgency and no etc., etc., etc. are WORTH it. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish I could suggest to every person who has gut issues, to try it. Go completely Gluten Free for 2 or 3 weeks. If you ARE Gluten Sensitive, you will be amazed at how wonderful you feel. Without ingesting it. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I'd suggest trying no Lactose too. Lactose Intolerance causes many of the same horrid gut issues.

Just saying... Just my experience.... Just saying...

Donna said...

I hope you are feeling better soon, Diana! Glad you are taking some time out for you. Get lots of rest and stay warm. Errr, I don't know if that actually counts as a bow "tie"...........Something tells me that this is a "normal" look for this guy!!

J said...

Wishing you a speedy recovery, my dear. I am just emerging from a three day sinus headache/sore throat/cough. The worse part is fretting over things gone undone while recovering. But I hope you will somehow "enjoy" the down time and come bouncing right back soon - in the same way "Mister Bow Tie" seems to be relishing life!

Feral Turtle said...

Take care Diana and feel better soon. Enjoy your magazines too..... And count your blessings that the Walmart mans not your hubby!

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Enjoy your time off. We all deserve now and then. What that a man? Who knew....ha ha. Feel better soon Diana. xo

Take care of that tummy! Hope you're soon well enough to go to Walmart dressed all up yourself. You do have THAT outfit, don't you?

Nonnie said...

Take good care of yourself. I speak from experience this past summer. I'm so sorry you are having a rough time. Praying for your recovery. Have you made it out to Walmart in your pjs? Our good friend Sweet Tea is also sick and in the hospital. Both of you need to get well. Pronto.

Be well soon, Miss D.

Sorry you're not feeling good! Hope you get back in shape by Thanksgiving. If not, the turkey can wait! Actually the turkey would probably prefer if you just skipped Thanksgiving dinner totally :)

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

So sorry to hear you are feeling down and out, Diana. Hope it's a quick and easy fix and you are back to the sunny side soon. I am thinking looking at the Walmart dude might be the root of your problem! Feel better soon my friend! Jane
