I wanna be sedated

Where to begin?
To start with, I've been absent because we have had a lot going on. We've spent at least 18 hours total in the ER because something happened to the Hubbs foot and no one can figure it out. He was in extreme pain and it would turn purple when he stood up, so the first thought was a blood clot. Thankfully, that's not the case. I did get to see where he works and I met a lot of the people he works with. (That is another post in and of itself!)
Meanwhile, the little one had been sick and out of school for three days, the Travidoo and I were fighting allergies, the laundry needed to be done, the house needed to be cleaned, dinner needed to be made, purchases from the gap needed to be made, and the world needed saving.
I honestly can't believe I just wrote about the most horrendous past week and half or so in just a few sentences. It's been crazy and stressful, but that's life, right?
Right now, we are still trying to get a definite answer about the Hubbs foot. The pain isn't quite as bad, but still there and while he isn't using crutches anymore, he is in a boot and hobbling around.
The Hurricane is back to full force gale winds, and the Travidoo and I discovered the wonders of Apple Cider Vinegar. That stuff smells so nasty, but! we have been putting about a teaspoon of it in some juice and gulping it down. It's better than any drugs I've taken! I still sneeze once and while and have to blow my nose a couple of times a day, but I'm not sitting in the car in the morning with tears streaming down my face. I haven't gone through a box of tissue yet. I haven't taken one pill for allergies. Travidoo doesn't have dark circles under his eyes from being so miserable with allergies. I'm telling you, it's a miracle!
So, that's it in a nutshell. On the plus side, I've already gotten a lot of my spring cleaning done.

Women's words

1.) FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five Minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

5.) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6.) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome.

8.) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying UP yours.

9.) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking "what's wrong", for the woman's response refer to # 3.

I think you should also note that any and all of these are subject to change at any time and whenever we feel like it!
