I didn't get done this weekend:
-edit pictures....of all sorts of wonderful things....like snow...ice....sun.....and so on.
-edit a this weeks picture of ME, and get it posted to my blog on Sunday.
-play with my child.
-spend time with my husband.
-cook healthy meals.
-anything, really, that would be considered productive in one way or another.
Things I managed to do:
-lay on the couch with a blanket up over my head while I moaned and groaned that I might die from this horrible fever, and cold.
-whined...and cried that my head hurt, and I didn't want to be sick anymore.
-let Sugar Bear play Jump Start nearly continually from Friday afternoon until Sunday evening.
-TWO loads of laundry, and I whined all the way through them.
-packed a suitcase, and two carry ons for our trip to Disneyland, while whining that I didn't want to be sick anymore.
-took a really long, and hot shower, while whining that I didn't want to be sick anymore.
-applied chapstick 2.3 bajillion times hoping to forgo a cold sore.
-got a cold sore.....in my nose. NICE! took a picture of it.....double NICE!
-sleep...yes....I did some good sleeping.
-finished a book...then started another, but none of that happened on Saturday when I thought I was going to die. What's the point in reading when you are just going to die anyhow?
-worried and fretted that I was still going to be sick in Disneyland.
-drove everyone I know crazy.
And here we are.....our last day "in town" before flying off to Disneyland, and I am leaving this blog unattended. oh yes I am. I know you'll miss us, but I'm still all germy, so you wouldn't want to hang around with me anyhow, so don't cry too much. K? We'll be back.....with stories....and pictures.....and all that. Don't have too much fun while we're gone.

Ocean, or as we almost always call her, Oh-sheeee, or often, Oh-shee Poh-shee Min Oh-shee, is Sugar Bear's bunny. She picked her out at a bunny show, and beyond a shadow of a doubt, our girl has good taste. She knew Oh-shee was the bun buns for her, and I'm glad I listened. Oh-shee is a delight. There is just so much to love about her. She is sweet, and funny, and chubby, and lovey.....and her fur is thick, and soft, and her ears are loppy, and long...and she often looks grumpy but she isn't. sigh.....♥.
So you can imagine that the meer thought of our girl not being healthy is enough to send this household into a frenzy. Everything seemed to be fine....until one day, I went to put hay in her cage, and she just didn't seem herself, so I picked her up...and oh my heavens...she was skinny. I couldn't tell just by looking at her, but once I felt her...I knew she had lost a lot of weight. Oh how my WORRY kicked on, and I took her inside for some TLC, and worry.....and ummm....watching. She was not really eating much, and she was not ummm....doing her business nearly at all. :( I may have spent an enormous amount of time that weekend googling rabbit ailments. I may have driven myself bonkers. Oh yes, maybe I did. Sunday night, The Hubby proclaimed that he would take our girl to the vet on Monday morning.....and he did.
Turns out....they didn't think there was anything wrong with her...but The Hubby insisted, and they pumped her full of fluid, saying that this would flush her system, and sent them home. oh...and charged $90, can't forget that, now can we? She spent a good deal of the rest of that day...and the next.... "doing her business", and she started eating more, and more and more. We kept her inside for about a week all together, and now she is back in her hutch outside, and doing well. I can not tell you how relieved we all are. :) We knew that we loved our Oh-sheee, but until this happened, we just didn't know how much. A lot....yes.....a lot.
This has pushed back our breeding plans a bit, and now we will not have baby bunnies ready to sell by Easter, but that is okay. We have our Ohshhhhhhaposhhhhhh. and we are happy. And so is she....even though...she doesn't look like it. She is smiling on the inside. ♥

The first shot was taken on February 13th. Sugar Bear and I had a fun day at home together making the Valentines for her friends. I love projects like this. She was excited to give them out, and I was happy for her joy.
The second shot was taken on February 14th. It is the view when I looked UP in Sugar's classroom at school during her Valentine's Day party. It was a nice party, and the kids liked the Valentines we made. It was a happy day full of love and laughs. ♥
The third shot was taken on February 15th....the day I won't soon forget. I had to travel for my job that day, and it was really stormy. There was tons of rain, and intermittent thunder, lightening, and hail. I as about an hour from home, when I drove right into a really serious hail storm. I slowed way down, and proceeded with what I thought was caution. It appears that I was not careful enough. I came around a curve, and my pickup truck started to slide on the hail. Everything became slow motion at this time. I worked and worked to pull the truck out of the slide, but it was of no use. I slide across the on coming lane of highway traffic, and the rear end of my truck struck the muddy bank. The truck then caught traction and shot out across BOTH lanes of highway traffic, and hit the guard rail on that side of the road. OH my GRANNY....what a scary ride it was. I was relatively unhurt, but considerably shaken up. I am so very grateful that there was no traffic in the oncoming lanes, as I crossed through it TWICE. I shutter to think how it would have ended up if I had hit another car. I'm glad I'll never find out. My truck is a beast, and took the crash well. It is in the shop, and I hope to have it back in a few weeks. I am also very, VERY happy that Sugar Bear was safely at school when it happened. whew.
The fourth shot was taken on February 16th. This is the loaner car I am using while my truck is getting fixed. I do not like driving a small car. I feel vulnerable in it. I am used to sitting up so much higher, and feeling like I have lots of vehicle around me.
The fifth shot was taken on February 17th, while I was at the local DMV office turning in my accident report. Usually there is a long line, and wait that feels like FOREVER, but this day, I breezed right in....and took care of business. It was one bright spot in the list of hassles involved in an accident.
The sixth shot was taken on February 18th. I had to travel again for work...and there was hail. I have a bit of post traumatic stress now....so I pulled over. I made it safely to my training, and spend 8 and half hours in a class that ended in a test. I haven't taken a test in years. It felt good. Not sure how I did, but I'm sure I passed.
The seventh shot was taken on February 19th. Sugar Bear and I had to go grocery shopping....oh how we needed some food in our house. It had been getting pretty depressing around dinner time. I like to have lots of choices, and we had been out of our staples for awhile. I was nice to restock.

-Monday, I spent a good portion of the day walking around with horse POOP on my bum at work. Yeah....obviously only ONE of my friends read my most recent "25 random things....." post, or else they would have TOLD me that I had poop on my butt. Right? (Number 14 says it all!) I mean seriously, people! Don't you think I would want to know? However, most of them stated that they just hadn't noticed.....which made us all wonder why "H", who was the one to tell me about the poopy tush, was looking at my hiney in the first place. Hmmmmm.......
-Last night, I placed a call to someone I don't know very well so that I could RSVP for Sugar Bear and I to attend her daughter's birthday party this weekend, cause I am totally awesome like that. I actually RSVP, people! Oh yes....I do! No one answered the phone, so it went to voice mail. I proceeded to say about 6 words before I choked on my own spit, and spent about a minute coughing and sputtering on my message. Yeah! I'm sexy like that.
-THEN....this morning, I'm nearly half way to Sugar's school when she says, "Hey mom! Where's the other half of my bagel?" I quickly look at the console where it used to be....then look down at the front of my shirt where it is nicely stuck using Sunbutter, and Nutella as glue! AWESOME!
I don't think anyone could be cooler than me this week, but if you have a fun tidbit to share, please do so in the comments. I'd love to know that I'm not the only one who just can't be any more FABULOUS, if I tried! :)
