Pat Green and Popcorn Balls

And it's raining. I have fine reading and Cherry Vanilla DP. Doesn't get much better than that.
Well, a warm body to snuggle up with would be better. But (especially as I've told the entire freaking internet I have oral herpes) I don't see that happening. I'll take what I can get.

Me and My Big Mouth

I've had a lifelong problem with fever blister, cold sores, whatever you want to call them... basically oral herpes. A friend of mine and I were visiting the other day and she had some cracks at the sides of her mouth brought on by stress. My outbreaks were always caused by stress, illness, severe pain or a temperature. This lead to me mentioning my problem and the fact that I haven't had an outbreak in years. I should have knocked on wood or something. Last week Jaron (the oldest kid and only boy for those who don't play along regularly) brought home some bug that involved running a temp. So add that to my stress and the constant pain I've been in lately with my hip and what do you get? Yep. The herpes monster is back and it's been saving up all this time for one doozy of a blister. It's huge and painful and disgusting. But! it gets better. Last night and earlier today my jaw and the side of my face have been feeling weird. I was rubbing my jawline this evening and came across a lump about the size of a pea, so it is affecting my glands as well. This was several hours ago and now my jaw is very puffed out and the entire side of my face is numbish. I'm hoping it resolves itself. If not I'm going to have to trek it to the ER, or see of the community clinic will see me and let me pay out the fee. Damn W and his shenanigans. I am trying to get back on Medicaid so I can get something done about my hips, but the State isn't going to help me and you have to jump through 9 kinds of hoops (fiery ones) to get the County to help. I guess maybe when I am rolling around in a wheelchair I might be able to get some help. That isn't looking to be too far off. One reason I haven't been posting much lately is I am in such bad pain that I can't sleep, can't get around and it's putting me in a really grouchy mood. I'm much too young to feel this damn old. Wish me luck and here's to hoping I don't have to throw a wobbly.

helpful kitchen hint

If you happen to have a container of sour cream in your fridge that says "best by 09/24/04" and it's 10/24/04 but it still smells good, it is SOUR cream after all... trust that they mean what they say on the "best by" thing and don't take a bite of it to see for yourself.

Happy Blogiversary to me!

So, it's hard to believe I've been doing this for a year. It's hard for me to believe it's BEEN a year. It certainly doesn't seem like it. The older I get, the more I am all "wow, where DID the time go?". It's especially bad because you have all these things you want to get accomplished and you haven't done them yet and the next time you turn around it's been a year since you set out to do those things and you're like whoa. Oops! This time last year I was planning to have lost weight, grown out my hair, gone back to school, and be on my way to Georgia by now. Hmm. Nope. O for 4. But, I look back on all the things that did happen and I am just thankful for my sanity. Well, that I have a shred of sanity left. A small one. But it's there, I swear! Maybe. For now. I have to go back home this weekend. Well, I don't HAVE to, but my mom is coming back from 3 months in Georgia, so I guess I BETTER. It's going to be good to see her, but it's not going to be good to deal with all the crap going on at her house. Which is a whole other post. One I am going to leave until I get back so I can tell it all at once. Have a good weekend, y'all. Wish me luck.

This is way too cute. It took me a few to get what it was all about, but when I did, I had to laugh.  Posted by Hello
