It's raining and for some reason I've decided to poke myself in the eye with a knitting needle. Repeatedly.

At least that's what it feels like.

When you add this sad little fact to the news that I am failing Oprah's Lifeclass, I'm not sure why the heck I got out of the big girl sleigh bed this morning.

Oh. That's right. I have a nine pound bundle of love dressed up as a shorty Jack Russell terrier who insists on tea and toast at 8am each and every day or there is total h-e-double-hockeysticks to pay.

Damn dog.

Don't cry for me, Argentina. Once my silly brain figures out that it's Fall outside and not a too-ma, all will be well once again. Just pass the Excedrin Migraine and a few frosty dietCokes and I'll be back in the proverbial saddle again.

So what have you been up to?


  1. Wow Coni, you must feel bad to be up so early. I hope the Excedrin and Diet Coke works. Hugs!

  2. ooo noo the weather I am sure is playing a big part in your ugh moment . its the change from lots of light to not lots of light ... does that make sense this early ..lol ... hope you feel more with it soon :) love mouse xxxx

  3. Get Stewey to do some work for a change and bring his poor mo-ther her pills and Diet Coke in her Sleigh bed, whilst of course wearing his butler or valet uniform :)
    Is he watching Downton Abbey (not sure if it is on in the US yet?)
    Get well soon - I miss my morning chortles :)

  4. So sorry to hear about your headache, Coni. Sending prayers for healing. Cathryn

  5. Aww feel better soon! I know all too well that no matter how bad I'm feeling, I have this JRT who makes me feel worse haha!

    No, really.

    ... ok not really, but they are high maintenance and don't really understand the concept of, well, anything other than their needs! I think of it as like having a baby I won't go to jail for if I stick it in a box. :D

    ...If only I had crate trained mine.

  6. Sorry to hear you have my allments too. I am praying for a quik hard frost and then nicer temps until Dec 1. But this pollen has to go or my hea will explode! Good luck with the Excedrin and coke...and tell Stewey to be a good boy...

  7. I'm so relieved that it's not a too-ma!

  8. It's raining here to. Blech is right. Girls and I got soaked on our way to school this morning.

    Hope you feel better!

  9. Maybe the Excedrin and diet coke are contributing to your headaches Coni....all that caffeine?

    What am I doing? Flew back from Canada and have been thirsty ever since...I mean REALLY thirsty, and am retaining fluid. I`m bloated like a puffer fish.

    I blame Air Canada. *wink*
