This and That



You know you are a blogging addict when you feel as though your head is about to explode, not even the nausea and just plain ickiness caused by medicines being used to treat RA can keep you away from the keyboard. So I am about to enter the rooms of my friends to catch up their weekends. Just wanted to let you know I spent three hours in heaven at Barnes and Nobles on Saturday spending my birthday money from the Darling Mac. Pure bliss. And a new Scrabble board. Could a girl ask for more? No, she couldn't. Will be back blogging tomorrow, surely I'll feel better. For now I'm going to spend a while with my friends. I am surely an addict...I should really be in bed...


P.S.

I just came from Theresa's Life and found she had given me an award...I really don't feel worthy, but I am so honored at the same time. It makes you feel as though you're on top of the world when someone does something like this! I am always so glad if I can make someone laugh or think about a situation in a different light. Thank you Theresa!

That cartoon cracked me up!!! I love, love, love Maxine.

I'm so sorry you're feeling bad today my sweet friend! Settle in with one of those new books and just relax and enjoy some time away from the computer. I know it's hard. I'm an addict myself.

Congrats on the new award. You so deserve it! Excellence is always found here.

Hugs!

Keeping up with other people's doings is a wonderful anecdote to pain, it takes you out of what ever is going on and into someone else's world. Sorry to hear that your RA is playing up, I am sending you happy thoughts to try and help get you through it.

Thanks for coming by my friend. I am also glad you had a chance to see the band. I was just over full with the love they share. Gosh I wish my old vessle would hold that in forever. I love the mom...such love and peace flows from her. Have a great day. Hugs and love, Brenda

Oh yes you are worthy! Now take those book treasures and head for your beautiful bed. Forget visiting!

Terri and Bob said...

Hi, Sandi! Wow, what a leisurely trip through Barnes and NOble! Sooo much fun. I see I have been AWOL from your site. I had signed up for the "reader" service and I thought that it notified you when your favorite blogs had a new post... not so... and now I am major league behind. (No, I didn't say I had a major league behind, although that is true, too).

See you more....

Tara said...

Nice award for you, and three hours alone anywhere is heaven!

Mary said...

Hope you feel better soon

Jodie Adams said...

I have to agree with your award, your blog is EXCELLENT! Get some rest!

Jenn and Jacqui said...

Hi Sandi, we are with Kari and Kijsa, only three hours would not be enough for us!! Sending a little bit of cheer your way and hope you feel much better today :) And the roadside things, they are letterboxes at the end of a country road, they call them RSD's (Road Side Delivery) although we are sure the birds would claim them for shelter as well!! (((Hugs )))to you ...we just learned recently that is how you send a hug in blogland!! lol Jenn and Jacqui

Jenn and Jacqui said...

Us again, forgot to say, we got carried away! Congratulations on your Award of Excellence, Sandi you truly deserve it :) J & j

Congrats on your "Most Excellent" blog award! That's part of a line from a movie...and I'm too embarrassed to let you in on which one...but remember I have children...and they loved this movie...Righteous and all that stuff.

Sorry, you're not feeling up to par...I was thinking about you over the weekend...I wasn't sure if you were still doing the injections...b/c you haven't mentioned it in a while....blasted RA...I will continue to keep you in my prayers...

Oh...and please allow me to introduce myself..."my name is Teresa and I too, am an addict"...a blog-a-liscious, crazy about snooping in on others, all out day after day...can't learn enough about everyone...Blog ADDICT!! I'm going to have to start going to meetings...b/c I am not going to have time to read all day long about others once I start on the new house...plus the department of public safety is going to require me to have back-up lights added to my butt to warn others when I am backing up...b/c of sitting so much the ole "booty" has started to go far and wide! They may even require that I be wired for that "beeping" sound that large trucks use to back up...I'm just sayin...blogging ain't good for the butt! However, I'm an addict...and I can't give it up...yet!

Blessings...
Teresa

Jeanne said...

That is heaven. Did that myself on Saturday, but wasn't able to spend that much time. So what did you get? Hope you're feeling better soon sweetie.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Dear Sandi, I am so sorry you are feeling poorly. I am with you on the Barnes & Nobles. I could stay in there for hours too.

Mockingbird Hill said...

Hope you are feeling better by the time you read this! If you've got what most of us have had, there's not much to do but snuggle in and wait it out.. ;)

Take care...we're thinkin' about ya!

Hope you are feeling better today Sandi! Three hours in Barnes and Noble is my idea of a good time, get a Starbucks and a good book and what more can you ask for. Congrats on your award also! Oh yea and I'm part of the blog addiction crowd. LOL

Take it easy, get better and just post when you're ready.

We, your faithful fans, ain't goin' nowhere!

Hi Sandi,
You most certainly are worthy!

Yep I agree you are a blog addicted when you tell your blog friends to get their act together and it's time to post again :)
Love your friendly reminder

San said...

Congratulations on the Big E, Sandi.

Most deserved, as was the three hours in Barnes and Noble.
