Observations From My Bed

So I’ve spent much of the last few days in bed. I am having a major fibromyalgia flair up, which stinks big time. It is as if my hips have been replaces with the hips of an 80 year old. I am about to have to go dig my father in law’s old cane out of the attic.

Nothing says sexy like a 30ish year old woman with a cane.

Here are some observations I have made this weekend from my bed. (If this keeps up, I’m going to have to change the name of my blog to Life from my Bed)

1) Weather forecasters need to drink way less caffeine.

2) Weather forecasters and news people in general should NOT use metaphors. I heard more mixed metaphors than correct ones. FYI, weather channel lady: it’s batting a thousand, not batting one hundred. I don’t claim to understand this sports metaphor, but I know WRONG when I hear it.

3) I would not trade places with Bristol Palin for all the money in the world, poor girl.

4) In the sentence ‘The water is overtopping the levee.’ The term overtopping is actually correct. If you knew overtopping was a word before you read that sentence please raise your hand. I didn’t think so.

5) 17 year old boy + 5 soccer games in 3 days + 95 degrees +85 percent humidity = 15 hours of sleep in one night.

This will conclude the ‘observations from bed’ portion of the blog.

I am sorry you are feeling so crummy!

And boy do I feel for Bristol Palin. Poor girl, thrust into the spotlight like that. This morning they had her boyfriends pictures on GMA (I think it was GMA) and I swear someone said "And he never wanted kids" why was that necessary to say?

I kept thinking "this election isn't about them!"

I'm sorry you are not feeling well - being in bed gets old fast! I hope you are on the mend soon!

Hope you are feeling better soon. Does the change in seasons make it worse?
