Series of Unfortunate Events

Hey Humble Readers...

Wow... what a weekend.  (And I don't mean that in a good way.)

Keep in mind that while all of the following was happening, I was dealing with AF.  Cramping and grumpies and everything.

Flashback to Thursday... I got my computer back after a ridiculous saga with the repair shop.  The internet seems to be running a bit slower, but I chalk that up to our ISP.  Then I go to do an internet search.  Joke is on me... there's still a redirect virus on my computer.  GAH!  After much fuming and saying nasty things, I decide to leave it for now.  It's only affecting my computer when I use, and since I prefer anyway, it's not bothering me all that much.  I DO NOT want to deal with the same yah hoos at the shop we were dealing with, and we just don't have the money to take it to another shop right now.  (I did, however, flame them on Yelp)

Late Thursday afternoon, I ended up with a doozy of a migraine.  Literally, I stood up and felt like I was hit in the head with a sledge hammer.  Ended wasting the rest of the day trying to not throw up.  Fun times.

Friday started out ok.  The headache was down to a dull roar.  Until I had a major IBS flare.  I spent the afternoon running to the bathroom.  Oh joy. 

Then, as I was putting Pippin to bed that night I felt a twinge in my shoulder.  When I woke up Saturday morning, I could barely lift my arm.  I'm so grateful it didn't happen on a weekday, because I'm not sure how I would have managed to look after the Wee-lings on my own.  I couldn't even manage to sit through church on Sunday because holding a squirming Pip was too much for my arm.

Other than a few little errands, I spent the weekend alternately applying ice and heat to my shoulder.  Today it's feeling mostly better, just a bit of an ache when I lift up my wee little mister. 

And that is why, Humble Readers, I haven't been around.  But I swear, I am back again now, and I'm going to get caught up with the lot of you.  I have posts rattling around in my brain to share, and I want to see what you all have been up to. 

How's that for a 'the dog ate my homework' kind of rambling excuse?  :)


  1. Oh wow. What a horrid week! Hope you get feeling better soon!!!

  2. I'm sorry the computer is still bugged...I would demand your money back and then take that money to have it fixed elsewhere....

    I hope your shoulder feels better soon, I'll be thinking healing thoughts for you!

    I'm SOOO glad you're back. I missed you and your tales from the Shire!

  3. Oh my! I hope you're feeling much better, and continue to be so!

  4. Are you for real?! That's ridiculous! I sure hope this week is going better for you. :)

  5. Okay, fine we'll except your excuse. :P I can't believe what a disaster that repair shop has been for you. You have a right to be pissed off! Hope this week is much better than the last.

  6. I was so angry for you as I read in your post that your computer issues are still not completely resolved after all the crap they put you through. I would be contacting the manager's manager if it were me. And they would be fixing it for free in one day. Good for you for writing a review on Yelp to warn others.
