A Fabulous Time Was Had by All

I am a wonder of science. My bout with pinkeye lasted from approx. 3 am Friday morning to 9 pm Friday night, which was just enough time for me to have to go to the doctor (hatehatehateyhate) but not enough time to even get my prescription filled.

Ima and Lotta went with their grandparents Friday after school so I was all alone until Sunday at 1:30.

This is what I did:

Friday - Went to see doctor at 4 pm. Went to Walgreens, but prescription wasn't ready. Left with Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, a can of cream of mushroom soup and minute rice plus two moonpies. (This is the crappy way I ate in college. Ah, memories). Fell asleep on the couch at 8:30. Woke up at 9:30 with miraculously cured eyeball. Trust me, Lourdes has nothing on my couch. Only tell this to pilgrims who will shell out $100 dollars for the privilege of falling asleep on my couch to obtain curative miracle. Curative miracles guaranteed only to those whose faith is beyond reproach.

Saturday - Built a fire in the fireplace and read magazines all morning. People seem to really like this Obama guy. They do not seem to care for that McCain fellow. At least in the magazines I read this weekend. National Geographic is still in its wrapper, but I'm guessing not so much on McCain for them either. 1 pm filled prescription that I don't really need. Went shopping for Halloween costume odds and ends at JoAnn Fabrics. Went to Savers and got a suede winter coat for 40 bucks. Eat it, retail!!! Ate lunch at old people's dinner time (4:30) at the Hubbard Avenue Diner. Always think I should buy Mattyboy a t-shirt from there. Will do that after I get the local "Missouri Tavern" t-shirt for Dr. Zaius. Worked on Halloween costumes. Wondered if 'Supermom Sarah Palin' ever made a Halloween costume for Pogo or Sapling or Fig. Drank wine. Finished a stars and stripes themed sock for my mother. She has patriotic feet.

Sunday morning - took dogs for a walk while wearing my cool suede winter coat from Savers because it was cold as a witch's what-y-hoo. Dogs seemed to appreciate my new sense of style. Probably I'll find out that I'm way out of style. Dogs still won't care as long as I bag their doo for them. Cleaned house with amazing speed. Wished I had bought more Moonpies. (Moonpies are very very new to our local Walgreens. We're pretty far north for the usual moonpie territory). Everyone got home at about 1:30. At 2pm I secretly longed for a little more alone time.

Girl you can WRITE. Like you needed me to tell you that.


Glad your couch is a miracle maker. I will be over soon with empty checkbook and ample hips to make one bigger and one smaller.

DCup said...

Fran's right. You can tell it. Sounds like a perfectly nice weekend to me. And that suede coat will never go out of style.

CDP said...

That sounds like an amazing weekend. I can't believe you get Moonpies in Wisconsin; I have a southern friend who has a hard time finding them in Maryland, and we're below the M/D line.

Randal Graves said...

Won't eating moonpies turn you into green cheese?

Does your couch merely cure ailments or can you see Jesus in the weave of the fabric, too?

dguzman said...

I love your life, especially the couch part. I have a sleepy couch--guaranteed to make you nap. Perhaps I could charge money for it too, but then where would I nap?

Suzy said...

I'm so jealous that you have my Savers!

I'm also longing for a weekend like this ... I crave time alone, but alas there is precious little of it, partly because the mister is still unemployed.

Love the Palin names.

Dr. Zaius said...

"...A stars and stripes themed sock" - ???

Only one? What - is her other foot a communist?

Comrade Kevin said...

I ate a wide variety of ramen noodles in college. Sometimes I combined the flavor packets to get a unique taste.

To say I was poor would be putting it lightly.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Glad to hear you're all better.

Zoey & Me said...

I tried to get DCap to buy those $65 a pair socks at Saks to keep up with the Palins but he said NO. I am hoping you take that coat back to Savers and get real for winter. I think Saks has a genuine leather one that will keept you warm for $2500 and I'll even send you a Palin Cabbage Patch doll for you and the kids. Is it a deal?

"What is the home remedy for pinkeye?" you didn't ask. A potato poultice. My kids have had pinkeye a few times and it's always gone away very quicky, though I've never put potatoes on their eyes. I have put one on my own, however and taro root on an infected wound.

I'll go get a life now.
