Nothing really exciting happening around here. Just me being sick. Not just sick, we are talking SICK!!!! Ok, I'm a little over dramatizing it a bit. But, I've had this "funk" for over a week now. Hubby finally made me go to urgent care Saturday. I, of course, didn't want to go. But he won out. He's stubborn that way. lol

Well, I went in having a small fever and a cough. I came out having the worst pain ever and wanting a divorce. lol. They gave me TWO shots in the butt! Antibiotics and steroids. The antibiotics were no problem. The steroids were another story. It felt like they were shooting molten lava into my hip. What made it worse was the snickers that were coming from the corner of the room. Yep, Hubby. He thought it was funny that I was getting a shot in the butt. He's lucky that I didn't have something heavy within reach to through at him. 

Anyway, now the fever is gone and I'm still fighting the cough. Hubby is still here. LOL!

Oh, we did kill a big snapping turtle out of our pond this weekend. They can really put a hurting on a fish pond. Since our pond isn't really big to begin with, we had to get him out. We did. All is well with the fish world.

So see, nothing going on here this Memorial Weekend. Just coughing. Oh, by the way, Hubby felt bad for laughing at me, so he milked the goat that night. He's slowly getting out of the dog house.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, cougher.

How big is a 'big snapping turtle'??
Glad you're feeling better:)

Did you have turtle soup? Never tried it myself, but hear it's great.

The snapping turtle was probably 16 inches across the shell. We were going to eat it, but, the person who was holding the meat, dropped it in dog poo. That's another story for another time. lol

Umm sounds like my dh when I go in, Glad you are feeling better.

Turtle soup sounds okay but turtle and poo soup not so much!

Hope your feeling better!


Melissa E said...

Hope you feel better soon!

Cat said...

Maybe you can giggle at his prostate exam??? Stinker.

Ok, remind the guy that is holding the turtle, poo poo platter isn't literal! Too bad. Perhaps you can use the shell for something.

It has to be something with our weird KY weather this year! We're all sick up here as well. Hope you start feeling better soon! Hope Hubby has helped out enough to get out of the dog house!

Kelle said...

Sorry to hear you've been under the weather, hope you are now well on the mend!

Did ya make southern style turtle soup?*wink* I remember a snapping turtle getting my fingers once, NOT fun!

Hubbies are great for getting into dog houses but they also can do great things in trying to get out, glad to hear your Dh is helping you out by milking, Mike would do the same :o)

Blessings and take care of yourself.
