June was NOT my month!

I am totally humbled. Beyond belief.

The first 2 weeks of June, I was home, on my couch, with pneumonia, back to work for a few days, then developed an earache to end all, doctor had no openings, off to the doc in the box*, finally "fixed myself" with Sudafed . Then I developed a strange rash....what the heck? I had spent an hour in the back yard with my buddy who was trying desperately to"go live with God", laying in the backyard with him for over an hour after work. I imagined chiggers, or fire ants....omg, it hurt, burned and was very unsightly. Off to work, one look and my nursing supervisor sent me home. Off to my doc the next day...shingles? I thought it happened around your trunk, in a half moon to circle spread, not on your shoulder, down and going to my back up into my hairline. Geez, starting week 3 of it now and finally beginning to subside.

Please, please if you have had chicken pox, go get the shingles shot! Don't even stop or put it off, GET THE SHOT!!!!

I want to go back to work, dig dirt in my garden and stop this damn whining! GO GET THE SHOT!

 She, or he, lives a few blocks away from us. Who knew? It's cute, kinda in a piggy sort of way. I need to do something besides watch the Food network channel. Hmm, pork? lol.

Let me know what you have been doing lately and do check out my dear friend and her yellow pinwheel quilt. I so covet that quilt! Awesome quilt. I hope Joanne reads this....hey Joanne, my birthday is coming up! Ok, fine, 7+ months from now. But it is so stinking cool!

Now, don't forget to get that shot...I just heard of a lady who was only 24 who got this horrid thing going. Yuck.

I am going to ignore and dig my quilt out that I am working on as a surprise gift for a dear sweet lady friend. Go sew something....


  1. Oh my friend, you've had a month of it for sure. I had shingles on my face and in my hairline years ago and I said at the time I'd rather go through childbirth again..!!! Keeping you in my thoughts, get well real soon girlfriend....

  2. OMG I hope you feel better soon. I got my shot about a year ago. My doctor said you have to be 60 to get it but she said I needed it because of my RA. I have seen people with it and I know how bad it can be. I will be thinking of you. Wish I lived closer so I could drop in and help you some.


  3. Oh my,,,,wishes for a speedier recovery..take care..

  4. Hope you are feeling better very soon.
    I didn't know there was a shot for shingles...thank you for letting us know!!
    Take care.
