Notice I said that with my best impression of Joey from Friends. Well, almost:
We've been doin' a whole lotta' nothing here at the GRITS household. Thanks to tropical storm Fay, we've been banished to the indoors. Oh, I'm not complaining about the rain because we definitely need it.
Our power actually went out for SEVERAL hours in the very early hours of Sunday morning. Upon waking to our electrical dilemma, the Princess complained there was "nothing to do" because the power was out. Sheesh. Her complaints were short lived after a trip to McDonalds for a healthy breakfast followed by regular Sunday church activities. By the time they arrived home after Sunday lunch with mom at work, the power was back on.
Late Friday night I was stricken with some sort of cold type plague. All day Saturday I bonded with these:
Saturday afternoon I found myself desperate looking for ANY type of relief from sinus stuffiness. Which resulted in a self-inflicted near drowning with this little jewel:
Yes, some of you may have seen this on Oprah. I don't care if Dr. Oz highly recommends this, one should attend a training session on this thing before using it. Did I get sinus relief once I used it correctly? Not so much.
Back to the power outage. I failed to mention earlier that I was on call for 24 hours Sunday in the Labor & Delivery unit. Which I was dreading, since the barometric pressure changes ensured me of a full house and zoo-like atmosphere! Well, the Lord was looking out for his sick little lamb. I only had one laboring woman for the whole day. She even asked me if I would blow my nose before I came back in to put in her epidural. Yes.She.Did. I quickly informed her I would be wearing a mask and would maintain optimal sterile conditions.
Today, I've spent a bit of time using these around the GRITS household:
And checkout our current radar:
The forecast is for continued rain until Thursday! Looks like were socked in for a whole lot of nothing around here. I just pray we don't loose our power again. I'd hate to force a board game or reading by candlelight on the Princess!
So....how YOU doin'??
