Sucky McSuck Fest

Pardon me while I whine.

It seems the "ruin my weekend" fairies are at it again. Last weekend I spent laid up on the couch with a pinched nerve in my back. Not sure how I did it but there I lay. I ended up taking Monday and Tuesday off work since I couldn't stand up straight until sometime mid-afternoon Tuesday. The only thing I achieved during my 4 days on the couch was an unhealthy addiction to "Real Housewives~of~Atlanta". The TV choices were slim and Brav0 had a marathon going.... what can I say? LOL!

Well, Saturday morning I woke up with a throat so swollen that my uvula was laying on my tongue. And yes... I had to look up the word for that little thing that hangs down between your tonsils.It's not a pleasant feeling. I've had to fight the urge to constantly gag over it. Lovely, no? Do you know that when I g0ogled for an image of "uvula" I found that there are people in the world who actually pierce theirs? Seriously. G0ogle it for yourself. I can't even imagine how a person could think a piece of metal constantly tickling the back of their throat sounds like a good idea. WTF?

I was awakened several times last night probably with some type of "my uvula is choking me" sleep apnea thing. And every time I woke up I realized that the mere act of swallowing my own saliva felt like someone had poured broken glass down my throat. Niiii-ce.

So yeah... the last 2 weekends have pretty much sucked for me. But it could always be worse, right? Not that I'm tempting fate or anything. Hopefully, things will be back to normal in a few days.

Who would do it and how in Gods name do they reach? Well anyway, more importantly, I hope you are feeling better, like a whole lot better soon.

P.S. Lily wasn't asleep in that photo she was just laying like that with her eyes closed. She stayed that way for about 15 minutes. She was "done".

Is it strep? Even if it isn't, that still stinks. Hope you feel better soon.

First, EEWWWWWWW!!!!!

Second, I hope you feel better in the morning or get your butt to the doctor!

Third, you should've called me. Kieren was home for the whole week with pneumonia. I would've killed for adult conversation!!!

Feel better!

Never quite understood piercing anything other than ears. Guess I'm old fashioned that way!

Hope you are feeling better soon. And that there is a good TV marthon on...

I am so sorry about the uvula thing...but yet I am so glad. That same thing happened to me about 2 months ago and I thought I had cancer or something. I couldn't even talk with gagging. WTF, where did that horrid disease come from???? So glad you are better.
