Being Sick Sucks

Yes, being sick sucks especially when it happens the entire week of vacation. I woke up our first morning of vacation sicker than I have been in years. With the help of just about every over the counter drug they make I made it the three and a half hour drive to the west coast. When we arrived I crashed on the couch of the cottage and didn’t show many signs of life for the next two days.

The bright spot was that if you are going to feel awful there is no better place than on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico. Yeah, I missed a lot of the fun things I planned to do but I didn’t feel the guilt you feel when you are home and sick and know there are things you should be doing.

With the help of Mr. Pop and Martini it turned out to be, if not a good vacation, a comfortable one.

We went ahead and reserved the same cabin for next year. My hope is, better luck next time.

Getting Ready for Fun

With just a little under two weeks until we head for the west coast of Florida, it’s really difficult for me to think of much of anything else. Whether it’s Palin’s rewritten history of Paul Revere or Congressman Weiner and his problems, I just laugh and move on.

Of course with a vacation coming up I have been stimulating the economy as much as possible. Which is more fun, getting ready for the vacation or the vacation itself? That’s a difficult question for me to answer.

Martini will be going with us and of course Fred the Cat will be at the vet’s facilities. The good news is our vet has a brand new facility and she went all green with the fixtures and the entire building. So Fred will have a brand new place to stay designed especially for cats. He’s feeling pretty special about his own get away.

My mind is not really on current events right now but more on future events and a whole lot of fun in the sun.
