Friday Five

1. Last night I squeezed 10 lemons and stored the juice in the fridge. Originally, those lemons were to be the sour in homemade Whiskey Sours. Now they are the lemon in my "I'm siiiiiick" tea with honey.

2. I am staying home again today. This is my third day home. I could probably load up on cold medicine and manage to suffer through a work day, but I would rather not. Plus, I really don't want to spread germs around. This cold has been a doozey, and I certainly don't want anyone else feeling this crappy.

3. Speaking of spreading germs, I really, really, hope I didn't spread this yuckiness to A. He leaves tonight to do some scouting work in his elk hunting area. He knows of a rarely-used trail in the area and wants to clear it of any dead, fallen trees and such this weekend. It would not be fun to do all that hard work while feeling this crappy.

I was originally considering going with him. I kind of liked the idea of helping with the hunt on some level. But I feel wretched, still. Plus, two of his hunting buddies have decided to join him. I might put a damper on their weekend in the mountains.

Besides, my head apparently exists solely as a vessel for copious amounts of snot, and my throat is raw from me breathing through my mouth for the past two days. Man, I really hope he doesn't catch this.

4. I am so sick of tea, you guys.

5. That's it. I am getting rid of as many books as necessary to make it so every book has a spot in our existing bookshelf. Who am I kidding? I am not going to re-read Dante's Inferno or The Art of Mesoamerica again anytime soon.

In between marathon nose-blowing, I am going to start hauling books into boxes for donation to the library. At least I won't be sitting around watching the Lifetime network again today.(Um, I have a new confession: I kind of LOVE the show Wife Swap. I know.)

Happy Friday to you!


  1. Our books don't fit on our bookshelves either. But I've converted the shelves in our unused closets into temporary bookshelves until we manage to get it together enough to get another bookshelf. It's just so hard for me to bring myself to get rid of books.

    Feel better soon!

  2. Boy do I love Wife Swap. I feel like such a tool watching it, and I KNOW it's totally not real and all but still. It's like candy for the brain. And sometimes you just need some Pop Rocks and Fun Dip, you know?

  3. I say you can never have too many books....
    too many pets yes -- too many books no...
    Have you ever seen the show Hoarders on A&E? My tv confession would involve all the shows of that category on A&E - Intervention, Obsessed, etc.

  4. Dude! I'm sick, TOO! I was sick all last winter and I'm so depressed at the thought of battling it yet again. The leaves JUST NOW started to fall and I'm already sick? NO! I looked at neti pots today. Everyone I know and love swears by them. But as I fondled the package, I turned it over and looked at the picture, gagged and placed it squarely back on the shelf. I guess I'm not yet that desperate.
