I am a Lemming

I can't thank y'all enough for your sweet comments and well wishes this past week. I so appreciated reading every single one. And - because I know y'all are so very interested in our immune systems - the Tongginator is feeling much better now, although I kept her home from school today because I still feel like absolute crap just to be sure. She'll return tomorrow and oh my gosh, is she ever excited about that. So am I... because perhaps school will distract her from her new obsession.

Taking pictures of Momma while she's sick.


I discovered on Friday that I look absolutely pathetic when suffering from The Influenza, plus I learned - from y'all - that I am a Lemming. An absolute lemming. Because on Thursday, during our trip to the grocery store pharmacy, I purchased jello, ice cream, pudding, fixings for fruit smoothies, popsicles and various other assorted goodies. I spent over $70.

$70, y'all.

I typically make fun of mall zombies. Little did I know that I am a grocery store lemming.

Well, don't you need sick people food when you have sick people in the house? Glad the Tongginator is better, and I hope you are on the way back uphill yourself.

I think you are in definite need of some comfort food. Feel better soon!

Well...I say it's 70 dollars well spent! Want me to send my mother-in-law over to do your shopping for you? Evidently she can buy tremendous amounts of food for next to nothing. Feel better soon. Before your daughter figures out how to email her photos to the newspaper or something!

I am glad at least she is feeling better! Hopefully tomorrow, you will be feeling much better too!!

Gail said...

Oh TM, you got it bad girl. I'm happy to see you still have your sense of humor. Sending good healing thoughts your way. :)

Janet said...

I'm right there with ya today, sister. Lemming and all.....

Sarah said...

What a fun hobby. (I would rate that worse than pointing out zits)
I'm terrible in the grocery store too. I shop by 3 standards, size, color, and sales. The house often looks like we're prepared for some kind of fallout as a result.

Keep getting better, people! I'm glad the Tongginator can go back to school, but I'm sorry you're still feeling so awful.

Wasn't that you with the dead bird on the stoop on Halloween??? Maybe THAT'S where this flu started. GASP! :)

Aunt LoLo said...

Hmm....maybe these pics are payback for all the flattering stories about her on the blog!

The point though, that I think everyone missed, is that Miss T didn't post the pic to the blog.

You did.

Glad your sense of humility is still intact! Feel better soon. :-)Maybe tomorrow will be more relaxing, with Miss T in school!

Glad you are on the mend. The flu wiped out the elementary school here thankfully G isn't there yet. Hear tell it was spread through the MickeyDs new touch screen tables, hmmm. One more reason to stay away from the Old McDonald's Farm, huhn?

Chelsea Gour said...

You crack me up! My husband went to Walmart...for bandaids today. He spent $15!!!! ON BANDAIDS! Well actually, he couldn't decide between regular bandaids and gauze with tape and stuff...so he got it all!

CC said...

Oh no! You are STILL sick!!!!!!!! Get better ASAP. And I'm a super stingy-shopper. Unless I'm sick. Or hungry. Then watch out!

Andrea said...

So glad you are feeling better!

Dita said...

Oh, you DO look like CRAP! Glad to see that Little T knows the photo rules and is following them to a T (get it, a "T") You poor little TM....good thing little miss is headed to school 'cause you need your rest!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

This happens to me every time I'm sick and have to go to CVS. It's crazy expensive there for groceries, but I just don't feel up to dragging myself anywhere else!
I hope you're all better soon!

I amso glad to hear T is better, now hurry up mommy and you get better too!

Mei-Ling said...

You spent WHAT on jello, ice cream, pudding, fixings for fruit smoothies and popsicles?!

Michelle said...

I'm glad to hear that T is feeling better, but sorry you aren't. I hope all those popsicles and fruit smoothies have you back to 100% VERY SOON!

Wendy said...

Sick is no fun but at least you had some good 'sick food' :o)

Sharie said...

You may look pathetic - but it's better than the butt shot Amelia took of me last week.

Kristin said...

Hey when you are sick, money doesn't matter. All that matters is comfort food. That's it.

Glad to hear you are doing better. :-)
