Tales from the Trenches: A PSA

Use a pot holder or risk being branded by the toaster oven. Class dismissed.

I think that it is safe to say that Hubs has fallen ill with H1N1. He called me today at work to tell me that he had a fever. His fever was 99.8 F, but he still had a fever and he has a very busy week. He called off for Tuesday to lay low and get well. He started feeling bad on Saturday night, but reported that he was feeling a bit better this AM. Hopefully this passes by him quickly and passes by me completely. Unfortunately, I have an incredibly busy two weeks at work.

Smiles in my day:
- I wore my hair down today and many people commented how much they liked it. I usually have it pulled back in some way because it gets girl curl crazy. Grant you, I had to pull it back in a loose pony tail later due to nearness to ceiling halogens (burnt hair smells nasty and I do it every year), but compliments were lovely. Makes me re-think pulling my hair back all the time.
- K-'s babysitter is getting married and was able to finalize the church and hall this past weekend. She was kind of sweating that. Now everything else can fall into place.
- K- has no school on Tuesday, so she'll be spending the day with Grandma. K- and Grandma haven't had a full day together in a while.
- I bought the game Gnip Gnop for Hubs tonight. I remember the game as a kid, called Hubs and asked him if he remembered it. He didn't, but told me to buy it for a sick present for him. Now, I don't know if you are familiar, but it's another game that I'm certain that my cousins had. We pronounced it Ga-nip Ga-nop. I know that the 'g' should be silent, but even if it is supposed to be (g)nip (g)nop, I'm still going to pronounce it Ga-nip Ga-nop. Hee, hee! I found the Gnip Gnop commercial on YouTube and I do pronounce it right! (Ping pong spelled backwards.) Look!

Have a great day!

I am not feeling well. I have an on again, off again fever and the feeling of up chucking. I'm trying to ignore it as I have no time for sickness. I'm not thinking H1N1, but I'm thinking some kind of ick. Hope your hubs feels better soon. Stay healthy!!

Well CRAP! I can't believe Hubs has the "disease" as well. My fingers, toes and everything else are crossed you don't get it too.

And, CRAP on the burn. Oven mitts were invented for a reason you know...;oP But, who am I to talk? I burnt my hand and then my arm on the heating element in our oven last year, within a week of each other. Sheesh!

And, how cool and fun does Ga-nip Ga-nop look? :o) Yes, yes, Gnip Gnop, I know, but if you're going to pronounce the "g", you just have to spell it that way. Hee hee!

Not to make a joke about your burn because I know those burns hurt - but they look like little H's branded into your skin.
