The voice from the crypt

I know. Long time no post.

I've been working at my new part-time job, so I'm working 60 hours a week. I've been sick with some type of allergy-bronchitis-whatever stuff for almost two weeks, and thought I was gonna, and woulda preferred to pass away quietly, but I'm starting to feel better.

I worked a few hours Saturday at the new job, and took Betsy into the nearly-deserted building with me.

She was impressed only with the break room.

"Look at the giant-sized treat machines," Betsy said, in awe and wonder.

Ah, well. My bank account was happy for the first time in many months today. Got two paychecks in, and the new job pays pretty decent. I even got paid for a half-day Monday (Memorial Day) that I didn't work at that job.

Sometimes I'd just like a little tenderness, though. Someone to say "I'll get you some cough syrup" in the middle of the night, or, "I'll make you a cup of tea. Are you feeling any better?"

It's the fate of a lone woman.

Nobody to even feel sorry for me but me. Phhhbbbbttttt ah, well.

I have some thoughts about the state of the Anglican Communion, but they'll have to wait until tomorrow. Or, rather, later today. I'd better go to bed.

Pat---I feel sorry for you! I always want my Mommy when I am sick, so I get it.

Betsy is darling! Did she get a treat?

If it's of any consolation, I have a husband, but, I basically have to take care of myself when I'm sick anyway.

Or give specific directions on my care, which are haphazardly attended to.

Glad you are on the mend, and I've been missing your voice!

It's good to hear from you, Pat!

I'm having a bit of a pity-party myself, so I'm sending you a big hug. At least we crazy bloggers can offer support.

Thank you for reappearing! I've been concerned about you. Welcome back. Hope you are recovering. Prayers ascending for that.

Thank, you, thank you all! I've felt the hugs and hot tea coming through the blogosphere (or "blogishphere" as our great chieftain in Washington, D.C. calls it). I am just about all over it now.

Saint Pat said...

p.s. -- and Betsy got a treat!

/me hands Pat some virtual hot tea and inquires as to how she's feeling, and would she like a cookie or two with that ? :)
