T is for Terrific and Terrible

Well, I've never liked ending on a sour note (not even in my books. Hey, stop giving me that look, sis. I might kill everyone and their mother in my books, but the ending will not be sour, I tell you.) So I'll start with the Terrible news.

I'm on vacation (no, no, that's not terrible.) I'm sick. (Yes, yes that's terrible.) There's like an infection or something on the right side of my face. My ear, down to my jaw, even that half of my TONGUE hurts like corny dialogue (like the Star Trek episode I'm watching right now. OMBananas.) Kill me now! Ahem, anyway. Some of my lymph nodes are getting puffy and my dad went so far as to threaten to take me to the hospital. *GASP!* Can you imagine??? I hate the doctors worse than corny dialogue.

But on the up side, I'm on vacation! *does dance* And so I will share pictures with you. The first of which is a bluffin my dad bought for me:

Blueberry Muffins!!

Ahem. Now back to the beginning. We stopped in Virginia at a friend's house and then continued on. My mum decided to take a detour to try and avoid traffic. Didn't really help but we got to see three tanks roll by. TANKS! And not like tank tops, but like army vehicles. It was crazy! But I didn't get no pictures because I was distracted by this:



It made me want to jump out of the car and dance across the bridge.

Me: Doesn't looking at that just make you want to tromp through the foliage and pretend to be a fairy?
Mum: *laughs then is serious* Um. No.

North Carolina!!

A Pond!
(Don't ask.)

A barn in the middle of nowhere
Look at the funky tree! :D

The house we're renting for two weeks
Love the red door :)
Sand, sand, sand
One thing about being sick is that I've gotten pretty good at making milkshakes
They taste so good on my throat
Mmmmm...

Well, I hope y'all have a good week, and I hope y'all are more healthy than I am right now. Have a milkshake or too, they're yumalicious.

mmmm, milkshakes are awesome.

Guess what I got yesterday?!!

All my goodies from YOU!! YAY!!

That should make you feel better.

But I'm crabby so off I go to grumble some more.

Gorgeous pictures. I'm sorry you're sick but I'm happy for you that you're on vacation. :) Have a great time.

@Palindrome: Yay! That does make me feel better!

Haha... I don't know why, but you saying you're crabby made me laugh because I'm at the beach where we have crabs, and I knew there was some sort of awful pun in there somewhere.

@sarahjayne: Yay! I'm glad you liked the pics :) I took drugs so I feel much better now. Not like street on the corner drugs, but like drugs from the store. Although, we do have a bunch of poppies in our side yard, and I probably could make drugs if I wanted to, but... Um. I should prolly stop this comment right now.

Looks like a fun trip, minus the infection in your face. That isn't fun.

The weather looks beautiful. Wish I were there! LOL

Laura Marcella said...

I'm so jealous you're at the beach!!! I'd even take being sick if I were at the beach right now, lol! Have a wonderful time, and I hope you feel better soon soon soon!!!

AchingHope: I'm sick.

Yuck. I'm so sorry to hear that. On a brighter note, you gave me a chuckle with "bluffin". Me, I prefer banuffins.

Look at the funky tree! :D

Run! It's Smokey on St. Patrick's Day!

Your beach house makes me jealous.
Enjoy!

AchingHope said...

@Melissa: It is fun :D Hey, if I can fit people in my suitcase and carry them around with me, i totally would. But that's probably illegal somewhere.

@sonshine: I don't think we pay for that on our phone contract ;) You know, the Replicator App, or whatever.

@Laura: Haha, thanks. I plan on feeling better very, very soon.

@Falen: It was good :) Sorry I can't magically share it with you.

@Blam: Banuffins!! I have to share that with my one friend. She will laugh her face off.

Run! It's Smokey on St. Patrick's Day!

I will probably never look at trees the same way again.

@mountainmouse14: It's pretty sweet. I was trying to enjoy to deck, but the glare was way too bad on my laptop.
