...it got down to 1F last night. This morning when I checked on the chickens, their water was frozen so solid it was completely white.
You know that really tense and overly expanded kind of frozen that just makes the ice look like marble?
At 10:45PM tonight, it's already -1F.
I might have 3 more chickens for the freezer tomorrow.
...I keep seeing Sahaharia's journal and thinking the one section is called "Transformer Movie."
What is wrong with me?
I actually started a journal entry earlier today and forgot about it right around the time I typed "...I haven't had time..."
Because... quite frankly, I didn't have the time to finish it.
Hoping I can get a little communication out there via my journal this weekend but it's not looking likely.
....those things assume the people involved aren't complete sociopaths.
So, yeah, if I were you I wouldn't put too much stock in old proverbs. Just saying.
...sorry, people were bustin' my flow. Ya know?
I'm past it.
On with the mischievous frivolity... or the frivolous mischievousness... which ever.
Tell-tale signs of a water main break here... the temp got into the single digits over night, the water out of the tap is increasingly turning brown and it is freezing cold.
Looks like I'm drinking wine tonight. Heh.
I was going to comment that they're obviously NOT married, but I refrained.
See, I might be bitter and jaded, but at least I have some self restraint about it...
...not much, but a little.
I threw up in my mouth a little...
...I think Morri just did too.
GAWD people... WHY??? WHY?????
OH NO!!!! There's more??? UGGGHHHH!
...ok, you guys totally took that one the wrong way...
But thanks for the concern! I'm past all that... :)
See what you get for leaving the interpretation to others? ~grins~ Wonder what would have happened if you had said something much more prophetic...lol. We'd have ourselves a new cult to contend with. The Cult of Birra...they'd be called Birrans and worship the Camera and Laptop, the communion would be Whisky and Saltine crackers (or something suitably salty and bread-like). Church would be every Friday night at a local tavern of choice and evangelism would be taken semi-seiously over a beer and game of darts.
Sounds like a plan. But I'd rather the "Birralonians" worship me instead. ;)
Oh honey, I am so sorry. Stick to light fluids, and keep a trash can by the bed. A wet towel on your head might help.
Gatorade or the like for fluid and electrolyte replacement.
Feel better, luvs ya.
Stay home. :p
...that was one of the worst 7 hour blocks of time I have ever spent...
...now I'm spent. Hope the employees don't mind me sleeping in my office most of the day...
I'm getting pretty good and figuring out this thing. It's fun, but it really is made with some flaws.
It's almost like Windows. If the remote has issues, you have to pull the batteries, put them back in, re-synch it and keep your fingers crossed.
...woke up feeling pretty good (*knock on wood*) except for a rumbly tummy that hasn't been fed enough in the past 24-hours.
I have two systems on the workbench I have to get done with today... so I have to stay alert and vomit free.
Empty stomach burps... yucky.
The aforementioned glow of the day came to a screeching halt this afternoon when my daughter got sick. Followed by her brother. A 24-hour bug the youngest was the first to come down with on Thursday morning… and their mom got it… so now I’m just waiting to see if it hits me after being coughed and vomited on several times today.
Now I get to sit home alone in quarantine because I definitely don’t want to spread it to Morri after all she has been through with bronchitis lately.
The stress of the day has left me with a knot in my neck and right shoulder that is preventing me from turning my head to the left more than an inch or two… I haven’t eaten since lunch figuring if I’m going to get it, best go into it with an empty stomach… right?
Maybe a good dose of scotch will kill all the germs… hmmm…
You're a great and caring Dad.
If you're hungry, eat.... Just... Eat something that's easy to get back up again.
God I suck at being reassuring... You'll be fine. Just... Stay away from me :P
No worries - we're 7 miles away.
I might have a little toast... toast would be good.
Vanilla ice cream tastes almost the same.... gods yes I do know for a fact- as I ate that when I had food poisoning and was not holding anything down for 4 days.
So...it was a good weekend for me to go away yes?
Hope the munchkins are feeling better and crossing fingers you don't spend your weekend in the bathroom.
I'm with them- the easier it is going down, the easier it is coming back up. Having said that, I would leave off ALL dairy products for obvious reasons, no offense to Ms. Saharia- milk coming up is nasty, and yes I know that for a fact. And toast might be a little rough as well. Think clear liquids, soups, et al.
I'm just saying. My son got sick after eating onion rings....not fun for mom, just home from work and still in her tux shirt and black pants trying to rock a crying 4 yr old.
Scotch kills all germs, the more you drink the better, then you won't know if you're sick or drank too much, sounds good to me!
But throwing scotch back up? Ewww...*holds nose closed*
And you are a good father. :)
Good soldier :) ANd Sahahria is right, almost any kind of ice cream is not too horrible coming back up. Just stay away from any kinds of fruits...ick.
Oh man - I hope all of you get well really soon.
