feeling blech!

Please excuse the sparceness of recent postings . . .

We worked hard on home improvements over the weekend, starting the room remodel necessary to feature our Dore Alley bed in a proper setting to do it justice . . .

Unfortunately, I worked hard enough to make myself sick . . .

Because I have pretty severe asthma, I've always been prone to catching bronchitis, and today's no different.  My biggest allergy problems stem from house dust and mold, just the kind of things that tearing up old carpet will stir up and put into the air . . .

I felt progressively worse each day over the weekend, and worse still yesterday.  Simple asthma attacks, wen ignored, almost always progress to some kind of infection.  I'm running a fever and my lungs were bad enough yesterday that I required a nebulizer treatement . . .

With a deadline for the arrival of our new bed hanging over our heads, I can say with absolute certainty that this couldn't have come on at a worse time . . .

Please send well wishes and healing energy, and know that once I'm feeling just a bit better that I'll be back to complete the stories I have in progress as well as delivering yet another installment in my ongoing series about gags . . .

  1. Sorry to hear you are feeling so yucky. Breathing that nasty stuff can cause all kinds of problems. Did you wear a painter's mask? I have allergy problems but not asthma. Dust, mold, mildew, pollen and cleaning fluids can play havoc with my sinuses and throat. I always wear a mask when cleaning and vacumning. It makes a huge difference in the way I feel afterwards. No headache or sore throat. I buy them at Home Depot.

    Hope your better soon.

  9. Thank you so very much for all the loving cares and concern for Master. He is also having to deal with the emotional distress of an aging dog and making some very difficult decisions soon.

    Yesterday when Master drove home he narrowly escaped being in a very serious accident. Master was just accelerating from an on/off ramp to get onto the main road when someone decided to attempt to overtake Master's vehicle in order to turn off ahead of Master. The idiot driver spun out of control sliding backwards off onto the grassed area and Master whizzed right on by.

    On the home renovation note I have finished painting the ceiling and the window trims. I will be painting the walls next and in short order lay the new floor. Taking record pics along the way.
