WTF Wednesday, I’m not dead…..yet!

Hey, remember when I used to write on this blog at least 5 or 6 days a week?

Yeah, I don’t either.

Things have been a little hectic around here and I just fought my way back from death but we’re all back to normal now and in case you’re wondering what’s been going on, here’s a little recap for ya.

The weekend was relaxing. I ran both Saturday and Sunday. MacGyver and I did a little shopping on Sunday and we did the usual weekend thing and hit up a few garage sales, we even saw Chopsticks and his entire family.

Obviously the whole family is a bunch of moochers and when they aren’t getting free food from my house they just move around to the others in the neighborhood. Wood Storks my ass, they’re freakin vultures!

Anyway, Sunday night was a night that we’ve been waiting for, for months, and we were not disappointed. The season premiere of The Walking Dead was the best to date! Seriously. Don’t worry I won’t spoil it for you, but if you haven’t seen it yet, you need to because, Carol, that’s why, and that’s that.

Because, Carol, that's why
On Monday, I planned on working all day and trying to reach the 50% finished mark on a project that is seriously behind schedule, so I got up early and got right to work, no running for me. I worked about 3 or 4 hours and then these guys came over…

I was going to ignore them but I had about as much luck doing that as Hank did.

Can't we just go 'pet them' Mommy?

Can’t we just go ‘pet them’ Mommy?

So I went outside and fed them. One of the neighbors came by and she said she’s been trying to find food that they will eat for years, and that so far they haven’t liked anything she put out for them. I told her they like nuts and dried fruit so I give them MacGyver’s Fruit Muesli. She was surprised to know they eat that and I’m surprised MacGyver doesn’t realize what happens to his cereal.

Apparently she’s also never read the encyclopedia, and by encyclopedia, I mean Google.

And then MacGyver got home. He had the rest of the day free and my car, which had been in the shop, was ready and he wanted to take me to pick it up. He said it would only take an hour or two at the most. Fine So we headed off.

Of course, he didn’t call first to verify the car was ready so guess what? It wasn’t ready. So we had to waste some time which is exactly what I didn’t have. See: I was already behind on a project.

waiting, waiting, waiting

Since MacGyver needed to pick up a door, we did that and then we went to Wal-Mart. MacGyver had to return a bicycle chain that didn’t fit so he went to do that and I went my way. I bought some nail polish, perused the entire store, went to the MacDonald’s inside the store, purchased an ice cream cone, ate the ice cream cone, walked around the store once more and then walked toward the front of the store where I found MacGyver…still waiting to return that God Damn Chain! Unbelievable. What planet are these people from?

This one.

This one.

After about 4 hours or maybe 1, (same difference when you’re in Wal-Mart), we were on our way. Back to the auto shop where, wait for it……my car was not ready. After some discussion it was decided my car would be delivered to our house later in the day. So, after wasting about 3 hours, we headed home.

On the way home, I realized Boomer didn’t have any food and since my day was already shot, we decided to make a quick stop at Costco; which is really ironic because if I know anything, I know that no one who shops at Costco is in a hurry, ever. MacGyver included.

That’s why, besides dog food, we also walked out with a cart full of food including a huge pork tenderloin, which MacGyver promised to cook me for dinner. So again, about an hour later, we were on our way home.

I worked for an hour or two and then my little friend Jayde came over and we decided I needed to decorate my house for Halloween because you know, I didn’t have a project to finish or anything. So, I took a little break and that’s what we did.

Finally around 8pm, MacGyver had dinner ready and we sat down and ate and it was delicious.

Looks can be deceiving.

Around ten that night, I had the worst stomach pain I’ve had in years and within just a few minutes it was clear that nothing I ate that night was staying with me.

About to throw up

I’ll spare you the details but let me just say that sleeping on the bathroom floor with your head a mere few inches from the toilet is not at all recommended, and it’s highly uncomfortable. And I would know this because that’s where I was for about 12 hours. It wasn’t pretty.

So, yesterday, when I should have been busting my ass to get that project completed and maybe giving you guys some sort of weekend update, I was sipping Gatorade and praying that I didn’t have trichinosis or some other horrendous parasite from the pork that MacGyver fed me.

Oh, and wondering why in the hell he was trying to off me.

I finally started to feel better last night and I am feeling much better today. So that’s it, that’s where I’ve been, and what’s been happening here. Everything is now back to normal. Well, except for the fact that I’m cooking for myself now and sleeping with one eye open.

Have you ever had food poisoning?
Where did you get it from?

  1. I am SO sorry to hear you had food poisoning. Yes, I have had it and I did think I would die. I was living in Texas and the boyfriend (at the time) and I decided to go to an oyster bar for beers and oysters. Here’s the thing… Don’t go to a roadside shack in Texas when it is 100+ degrees out. I am not even sure they had refrigeration in their shanty. Anyways, got home and it hit. Hot poker stomach pains and I knew it was bad. I was on the bed shaking violently. The bf was freaking out and wanted to take me to emergency, but I was 19 and existing on popcorn because I was so broke. So no. He ended up buying every stomach thing he could find at 7-Eleven. I kid you not, I woke up the next morning to pink walls, pink bedding, pink carpeting…from my projectile vomiting all night. The Pepto Exorcist. I have felt your pain:(

    Hank’s ears are darling and you know how I get out of Costco quickly? The bf goes before I get home from work. I think he is avoiding all the b&*(^ing I do when I am there. My plan worked!!!

    • LOL, oh, the Oyster thing had me rolling, not in a mean way though because trust me when I say I feel your pain! But the pink pepto thing cracked me up. And Oysters are the worst! MacGyver got food poisoning from oysters once and it was horrible…

      Hanks poor ears have become Boomer’s chew toy lately…its really kind of funny because this huge lab is so gentle and Hank loves it! 🙂

  2. Oh no, I am sorry to hear that. NOT fun! I remember last time I had that, I felt like I was dying. Hope you feel better! I think it is good you do not post that much, you are out living your life! That is way better 🙂

  3. Yikes! Food poisoning is no joke! In the moment you just want to die! The last time I was that sick was a couple weeks ago when I ate some steak. Beef doesn’t sit well with my stomach these days, so I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to eat the whole entire slab… I couldn’t leave our house the next day. At all. I couldn’t even keep water down.
    Pork is a no go for me. I stay away from all things pork. … except bacon.
