Hey, it's me!

No word on the computer, so I'm checking in from work again. The staph infection seems to be getting better but taking the antibiotics is no picnic. No horrible side effects that would make me stop, but I haven't felt too great either. Everything's a trade off, isn't it? Between feeling a little icky and having no computer, I went home last night, ate dinner, went to bed to read, and was asleep by 9 p.m.--and I'm a NIGHT OWL! So that's about four hours earlier that I'd normally go to bed. Maybe tonight will be more productive.

Since I wanted to pick a winner of the scraps tonight and Hubby isn't here to pick a number, I asked one of the gals I work with, Brenda, to pick, and she picked 32. Comment 32 is from Lurking Linda, who's quite the little poet!

"I'm out of lurkdom to say please include me in your giveaway! I love scraps as well!! Lurking Linda"

Linda, please email me your mailing address and I'll get these scraps mailed out to you--thank you all for playing and being so willing to help me out.

My "lucky streak" (yes, as a matter of fact, that IS sarcasm you detect!) continues tomorrow morning with a root canal. ARGH!

I always find the dentist's bill hurts way more than the root canal! You are on a roll aren't virus...staph infection..root canal...just gets better and better..!! I find if I go to bed too early I wake up after a couple of hours and think it is morning.....which I find really annoying!

Poor you! I'd rather be in labor than have a root canal--and I've had plenty of experience with both!

I agree with "the other" Kim, labor...over a root canal.

You sure are having a run of challenges to contend with these days. Congratulations to Lurking Linda- she is a friend of mine so it is especially nice to see that she has won them.
Hope the weekend brings you fun times with good friends and loved ones doing the things you love to do.

Geez. Broken computer, staph infection and now a root canal. You sure know how to celebrate, don't you??

Bummer! Everything comes in threes??? This would mean it is the last thing to get through, we hope, maybe... Congratulations to Lurking Linda!

What a run of rotten-ness. When I had a staph infection and was on some pretty strong antibiotics I also too some probiotic pills to help counteract the rotten feelings. The antibiotic strips your system of good and bad bacteria so you need to replenish the good stuff.

Well, I would rather have the root canal than what I had to do yesterday. I had a colonoscopy!
I think I'll stay anonymous this time.
