God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Who flang that brick?

Is about how I felt today after finally recovering from a virus that hit hard and fast yesterday morning.

One minute I'm moving my cleaning gear from one bathroom to another, getting ready to scrub & wipe down everything. The next I'm sitting in the recliner feeling like Death warmed over. Phooey.

I even had to wake the wife up, which seriously shorted her on sleep, because I knew getting our two older kids home from school would have been sheer agony. That isn't too bad in itself but during the past few years I've discovered that being a silent suffering saint isn't in my future. When I feel like crap everyone gets to know it as I spread misery throughout the land. So getting the kids was out, they don't need to have "Daddy" snarling and snapping for no real reason.

I slept most of the time since then. Now I'm feeling better, not 100% up to speed but much better than yesterday.

Years ago I'd have bounced back from a bug like this by going into maximum overdrive to catch up on all the work I'd sloughed off. But now I'll have to coast on into my normal routine over a day or so, otherwise I'll be flat on my back again. Getting older sucks on toast. But it still beats the alternative.

Okay, time to end the pity party. Break's over, everybody back on your head!

Hope you feel better. "Sure beats the alternative" - you said it. I was at a funeral yesterday. And it certainly puts every breathing moment in that priceless category. God bless.

I feel for ya, partner. And I know what you mean: I'm a major whiner when I'm ill unless I'm so feverish that I'm delirious. Get well soon!

Subvet said...

Tony, thanks. I didn't believe I was a complainer because by living alone there was no one to complain to. Marriage has changed that.

Subvet said...

Rick, I'm feeling better. Thanks for the well wishes.

Along with what you said about attending a funeral, I received word today that one of my fellow participants in a recent CRHP group was hospitalized for unknown reasons. Hopefully he'll be better soon.

Men... (eye rolls)

;-) Glad (for your wife) you're feeling better.

Subvet said...

Mary Ellen/Nunly, yep we're all diamonds in the rough!
