I’m Back & Feeling Somewhat Better

This coughing seriously needs to stop!  Luckily, I am feeling somewhat better.  I think it really helped that I got some sleep last night.  This prednisone (steroids) that the doctor has me on causes me to not sleep worth a darn.  They prescribed a cough syrup with codeine for me and said that should help me sleep….. NOT!!  So, before last night, I had only 6 hours of sleep since last Wednesday.  I was literally up all the time.  I would read magazine after magazine and well I am sick of looking at magazines.  I often thought that all of this time that I was wide awake…. I could get some serious housework or crafting done, but I didn’t.  I have had absolutely no energy and that has been bothersome as well.  I organized some laundry for my hubby the other day…. separated the whites from the blacks and the reds and well you would’ve thought that I ran a couple thousand marathon’s.  I was beat and down and out for the rest of the day and the day after.  I guess the no breathing thing really does it for me.  I am just happy to have my voice back.  Yep, once I got my voice back…… watch out!!  I was talking to my Mom, my hubby was probably worn out from my talking and well I just would talk to be talking.  Taking my voice away is not a good thing (lol).  Anyway, I lowered my dosage of my steroids today to 3 pills a day for 3 days and then it will go to 2 and then 1 until they are gone.  Luckily, I am all done with my antibiotic (Levaquin).  That stuff made me so flipping sick!!  Oh, I was nauseated and vomiting and it was just all bad.  I guess after a long drawn out paragraph….. I am just hear to say that I am feeling better a little bit more and more everyday.  Cameron is sick now so that is irritating, but hopefully if we can get him in to the doctors tomorrow then he will be feeling better soon as well.  Yep, we have all had our rounds in being sick.  Nasty germs!!

I am happy to say that I have pictures to share with you all.  I took a couple of these today and had to share something prim in order to keep you all around (lol).  Hope you enjoy a few new things around my home.  My Mom gave me this just the other day…… what a treat to give me this when I am sick.  Thanks Mom ~ I love it!!


I know, I know I shouldn’t have done this today especially since I am still trying to get better, but I have had this around for almost a year and never hung it up.  I did a swap with Pam and thought that one of her baskets would look too cute hanging there so I decided to hang it up.  Doesn’t it look to cute?  Ya gotta love Pam’s baskets too!!  They are awesome and she does beautiful work.  Thanks Again Pam for swapping with me!!



Here are a few more items that I received from Pam.  I just absolutely love her baskets and this angel that she made caught my eye when I saw it on her Facebook page.  Isn’t the angel so cute?!?  The red stain on the baskets match my kitchen perfectly and well a prim gal can’t go wrong with black!



Here are a few other items that my Mom gave to me.  She had them, but wasn’t using them and offered them to me.  Of course I told her to bring them on over and well I know just the right place for them when I get to feeling 100%.  Thanks Mom!!


Don’t you love the pillow covers?  She gave me two of them.  I currently have them on my couch, but I am not sure if they will stay there or not.  They might go into our bedroom when I get to re-finishing it, but we will see.  My sweet Mom also gave me this beautiful quilt and well I fell in love with it.  Seems as though she had several of the same exact quilt.  I asked her how or why she bought 3 or 4 of the same quilt and she simply said “I love it”.  I guess I can see why.  I love it too!!  What do you all think?  Aren’t I a lucky gal?  My Mom is just so sweet.  She literally has a heart of gold and I love her dearly.


Speaking of my poor Mom…… she is having withdraws from me and I am having those same withdraws from her.  She is desperately wanting me to come over and help her decorate and well I am getting quite anxious myself.  We sat down together about a week or two ago and ordered some stencils so we could start stenciling some of our rooms and we are so excited to get started on them, but I have been in isolation from my Mom.    The stencils came in just the other day and well I guess you could say that we are so excited to get back together and start decorating.  It was funny….. my Mom brought over some of her books and magazines to me the other day and she handed them off to my hubby.  She stood outside my door and we talked back and forth to one another with the door closed.  I hate doing that, but I didn’t want her to get sick so it was necessary to say the least.  Hopefully soon we can get together and get decorating!!  I love you Mom!!  Miss ya big bunches too.

Well, ladies I better run for now.  I am off to shower since my hubby is home now.  I have been a bit dizzy and lightheaded so I tend to not shower when he is gone.  I just sometimes freak out a little bit when I can’t see straight.  Hope you all are staying healthy!!

Until Next Time…… Blessings, Lisa

I am so sorry you are sick...I do hope that you get back to normal soon. I know what you mean about your mom...mine went to Florida and I miss her so much!!!
I do have another question for you have any problems with chipping on your kitchen cabinets? I so want to paint mine but I am worried about that...did you put a finish on varnish or something? Thanks, Dianntha

OOOOOOOOH Lisa!!! So sorry you have beeen so sick. I think the whole world has is all over blogland. My daughter and her DH and their 2 children were all in last week. Christie and Savanna tested positive for H1n1, so needless to say, i was banned from their home too. They were sooo sick. They are all feeeling better now. I did miss Brock and Savanna so much so we are making up for lost time this week. It has been in the 60's all week so you know we have been outdoors playing and squeezing in some gardening. Rain is moving in tomorrow, so fun is over.
Love what you have done in your home since last time. Hope you will be able to get started on your stenciling soon. You might know, I just covered all my stenciling last year when we painted and now it is coming back strong. Oh well, thats life. Have a good week-end my friend.
Hugs, Sherrie

Oh, Lisa...I hope everyday is an improvement for you. I think you have had enough! Let's just hope Cameron gets better very soon. I think kids jump back quicker than we do.

I have missed you. Say hello to Mom. I am happy that you live near each other. Isn't it wonderful?

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Stacy Mathes said...

I just love all of your goodies. I hope you feel all better soon. I have the exact same quilt! Love it!

Laura :) said...

Don't know if anyone has suggested this or not, but the pharmacist told my dh to take prednisone before 9am each day. Just thought I'd mention it. Hope you get rid of that cough! Get well soon!


Gettysburg Homestead said...

Glad to see you are on the mend. That prednisone is nasty stuff. It makes most pepole gain weight. Like we all need that. LOL.

I have seen that quilt your Mom gave you and have always admired it.

I was reading back a few posts and looking at your beautiful home. I LOVE the colors that you used on the walls and love the bowl rack.

P.S. Email me your last name and I'll send you a facebook request.
