It’s Mommy Monday!
I’m not sure if this crazy weather has my immune system all confused or if it’s because my rapidly aging body is just worn out and is no match for this new generation of ninja germs, but I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately… again!
For the past 3 days, I’ve been living off a diet of pain relievers, fever reducers, mucus busters and cough suppressants. I’m FINALLY starting to feel some improvement in the symptoms, but it needs to go away… faster!
I waited ALL WINTER for the frigid temperatures to break and RUMMAGE SALE SEASON (yay!) to start… so I’m not about to let a few nasty germs keep me home!!! I’ve been taking full advantage of every opportunity to build up my “inventory”… because that’s the ONLY way a “project junkie” can stay busy through the long winter months in MY neck of the woods!!!
This past Saturday was no exception… even though I was feeling like crap, I sucked it up and decided to go see what kind of “treasures” we could find. I remember taking a healthy dose of my “feel better” medications, and then climbed into the truck with two very reluctant pre-teens… and my designated driver, of course!
We passed a few sales and stopped at a few- picking up a couple of little things here and there, but not really find anything that I was looking for… or NEEDED.
The next thing I remember is walking away from a sale and climbing back into the truck with my designated driver, two now NOT-so-reluctant pre-teens, and two things I was not expecting to bring home…
I’m not really sure WHAT I was thinking… but I’m pretty sure this was NOT my fault!
I guess maybe I’m just not ready for an empty nest… at least not yet anyway…
