Who Turned the Lights Out?

By February 22, 2011March 2nd, 202115 Comments

I’m still here! Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Remember my nagging little cough? Well, it turned out to be a little more than that. I was steadily feeling worse and decided to go to the doctor Friday afternoon. Turns out I have an acute case of bronchitis on the fast track to pneumonia without medical attention. I guess it’s a good thing I went to the doctor! So I have been in bed ALL weekend trying to recover. I’m on some super strong meds that really seem to be helping. I’m not fully recovered, but feeling much better.

I was hoping to get a post written Sunday, but we lost power before I could! Have I ever mentioned how much I hate losing power?? Well I do! Sunday afternoon we had another winter storm roll through leaving snow and tons of ice causing many to lose power, including us. We have been without power since Sunday evening. The power company keeps changing when restoration is going to happen. They are even saying power might not be back until Friday! I can’t even think about that! Luckily, my dad lives down the street from us and he still has power! Thank goodness! So we are all staying with him right now, even Sarge. It’s such a pain, though. We had to empty our fridge. Ugh, and we just went grocery shopping Sunday morning! The girls have been home from school for the past two days. They’ve loved every second of this adventure! I’m posting from my iPad, which I’ve never done before. It’s not bad if you’re in a pinch. No photos though. 🙁

Hopefully, I can post from my computer very soon. I haven’t been working on much with being in bed and then NO power. Trust me, I’m ready to get back to some quilting!

    Thats not been good for you – but great to hear you are on the mend – I was wondering what had happened to you. Be better soon… and keep warm.

    Oh, no! When I got your e-mail I thought you must have your power back. I feel for you. Be thankful for your Dad and that he is so close with power. Take care of yourself and feel better soon.

  • Sue says:

    Gosh, I really hope you are on the mend. That sounds terrible. I feel for you. Lots of sickness going around the state.

    We got a foot of snow over here, but the ice missed us and we still have power. I am surprised with the way the winds were whippin' around.

    Take good care of yourself and hope your power comes on soon.

    Blessings and peace,

    I hope for you a speedy recovery!

    Glad you are feeling better. That is serious stuff. I had that same thing when I was pregnant! Hope your power is back on now or very soon!

  • Allie says:

    I am so glad you went to the dr. Keeping my fingers crossed you get power back very, very soon!

  • Joanne says:

    Oh No!!! Take care!
    Hopefully your power comes back on soon too.

  • Darlene says:

    Ugh!!! Stay warm.

    Bless you and I am glad you are beginning to feel better!
    It stinks without power … hopefully it will be restored soon.
    Take care of yourself!

    Oh Linda, so sorry you're not feeling well. Yes, good thing you went to the doctor before you got worse, you might have ended up in the hospital. When it rains it pours, right. At least you can stay with your Dad. I have a iPad too, in fact I'm using it right now. Yep, can't do pictures for postings and such but it's a fun little device, we like it. Get better soon!

  • Kim says:

    Uh oh. No power and no energy is a nasty combination. Thank goodness Dad is right there when you need him and all of you are safe and warm and from what you said, you are probably eating plenty as well, lol, can't let those groceries go to waste. And I thought you were all snug in your sewing room, stitching away and having a great time. Sorry! Feel better soon. Be back home soon! 😀

    Oh Linda…bless your heart…stay warm and get better.
