I have a sinus infection and possibly 2 inner ear infections, I know at least 1 ear is infected.
Amoxicillin for me, 875mg. That is the most that I have ever been on thus far.

I am soooo sick of all this Inauguration CRAP! I have not had the TV on this morning, I have not looked at any of it on the internet. I just got so sick of hearing about it as it got closer. I DID NOT VOTE FOR THAT MAN! And may GOD have mercy on this country in the next 4 years.

The motor on our furnace blower went out night before last, and so we had to buy a new motor for it yesterday and replace it. Hubby, his son, and my son got it fixed in the afternoon, so we have heat again. Then we had to go buy new filters for it, so those are in now. It feels good in the house again.

Well, our Christmas tree is finally down! I don't want to hear it, my husband would leave the thing up until Easter if I'd let him.

My Sister called this afternoon after her Doctor's appointment, her gallbladder definitly has to come out, but we already knew that, and the Kidneys are O.K. Just a cyst on one(which we already knew) and the other just has fatty tissue. NO CANCER! THANK YOU, JESUS!!

I had my usual day today, got up and made coffee, took Cassie(stepson's girlfriend) to work over in Kansas(that is a half hour drive there and a half hour back). Started dishes as soon as I got back, fixed hubby something to eat, took hubby to work, went to the store to get some drain cleaner( the drain in the basement backed up). I started fixing dinner about 4:00p.m.( fixed beef stew). Picked Cassie up from work. Did the dinner dishes( yes, you read that right). Steven is watching the idiot box, so I may go someplace and try to read. I haven't read my Bible yet today. I have been reading 3 or 4 chapters from Genesis a day and the Proverb for the day. I started this on January 1st.

When we went to half price books on Saturday, I bought a hard cover copy of "The Long Winter" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I already have Little House in the Big Woods, and Little House on the Prairie in hard back. I am trying to get the whole set in hard back

Later, I have to go pick hubby up from work(he gets off at 11:30), then I'm going to bed. See you tomorrow!


SATURDAY: First off, I managed, finally, to get all the dishes done from Christmas and New Years. Of course, me getting sick on New Year's Eve did not help. Then, my step-son Patrick had an eye appointment to get new glasses, so we took him and his girlfriend to do that and we went to Half-Price books and picked out some books. On to Panera's for some lunch and wait on the 2 kids to get done. On home. I don't remember fixing dinner, probably because we ate lunch so late in the afternoon, no one was hungry. We tried watching the latest Batman movie, but I had to leave to take my daughter somewhere, so finished watching the movie last night.

SUNDAY: We didn't do a whole lot yesterday, I just didn't feel well. My stomach was still queazy. I did fix a brunch of link sausage and Pancakes, so we ate that around noonish or one o'clock. Then later I fixed homemade Au Gratin Potatoes( they were good) and some leftover Ham from New Year's. I still have some Ham left(it was a big Ham), so I will more than likely finish that off tomorrow. Then, of course, we finished watching the movie we started Saturday night.

Now I need to do dishes from last night, so we can have dinner tonight. I just have never gotten in the habit of doing the dishes after dinner. Don't get me wrong, I have done that, just not on a regular basis, and I know that I should. Just like I have never gotten into the habit of reading my Bible every single day of the year. I start doing it, and then stop. I don't know why, I just do. I guess that's why I stopped making New Year's resolutions, I don't follow through with them.

My sister's gallbladder has to come out, she has a cyst on 1 kidney and a tumor of some sort on the other. She really needs prayer!


O.K. I'm not completely over the illness, I took my son-in-law to pick up his paycheck,(which they had mailed out) and by the time I got home, my tummy wasn't feeling so good. Needless to say, I don't think I'm going anywhere the rest of the day. I may just let hubby take the car to work.

As for the prayer request; My sister called me this morning and told me that she has a Gall stone that needs to come out. No problem there, but she also has a spot on one of her kidneys that they are not sure what it is, so they are going to do some kind of test to check it out. It is either a cyst or a tumor. Will know more after the test is done. I told her to pray that it is just a cyst. So, would like prayer for a good outcome.


I'm feeling better today! I started feeling somewhat better yesterday afternoon, I did manage to fix dinner and I was able to eat dinner. I fixed a somewhat traditional New Years dinner of Ham, Black-eyed Peas, and I fixed Corn. It really tasted good. And I have enough Ham left to get 2 or 3 more meals out of it.

I have a subscription to Netflix and hubby gets on there and adds movies that he wants to see, and then of course moves them to the top of the list, so day before yesterday we got the Librarian, and so we sat and watched it last night. It is a take off of Indiana Jones. It was pretty good, I enjoyed it.

I got sick last night, all of a sudden. I was fine at 4:30 in the afternoon, I was at the grocery store getting a few things we needed, and by 7:00 I was in the bathroom throwing up and I had diarrhea. I threw up off and on last night, I think I'm done, but I'm not sure. Hubby says he heard this junk comes on suddenly and last for 12 to 24 hours( the vomiting and diarrhea), and the entire illness lasts from 2 to 5 days. I couldn't even pick hubby up from work last night, one of his co-workers brought him home.

Well, I'm going back to bed, I don't want to stray to far from the bathroom.
