What's new with me? - Boy, Booze and Bronchitis

These months are completely flying by!! Its the 4th of freaking February already!

Its my first week back on the blog in forever and I almost gave up on posting for the rest of the week. Almost. Why? Because Bronchitis sucks. Its sucks major lollipops - but more on that later. Sick or not though, I couldn't miss the first edition of my girl Kristen's super cute linky party! Nopes.

What's New With You

So what is new with me? Lots and "not lots" I guess. I figured since Kristen and Gretchen took the time to create such an awesome concept, I might as well take the opportunity to write a post rambling about what I've been up since I last disappeared. 

Boy:
Specifically, this boy ...

Kay and OC
#mce
"OC", which is what I named him some posts back when I introduced his hand, has actually been around for a minute and a half. Since I might let him stick around for at least 5 more minutes - you know, since I spend the majority of my non-working time in his presence - I figure hes blogworthy ;).  

But really he's a doll #mostdays

PS: I just let him read this paragraph and he said "are you getting paid for that post? I want a cut since my face is in it." 
He thinks this is a paying gig ... I'm clearly going to have to give the #bloggerlife talk again - You're cute but sadly babe, I do not get paid to post your mug on my blog. Lets just call it a "perk" of the territory  mmkay?

Booze:
I mean, naturally, in my time-off there was booze, but I think the more appropriate word for the title should have been "socializing". Alas, alliterate it did not, so "booze" won the title naming prize. Semantics. 

I've spent a good many of my Friday evenings into weekends having drinks with my coworkers, wine with my mama, with OC and with friends. I'm not complaining though. Lets add to that the fact that its also Carnival season here (think Mardis Gras but better) ... and it's definitely been a boozy, socializing, partying kinda vibe around my neck of the woods.

Well, until ...

Bronchitis:
I took a (rare) day off from work yesterday to go to the doctors only to find out I have Bronchitis. Can someone please honestly answer me this: WHO GETS BRONCHITIS??? Me. That's who. And now this is my life for the next 5-7 days:


So the story goes like this - I got the flu last month and have been hacking coughing ever since - well after the flu had gone. I was powering through like a champ until this week when I decided I was fed up of feeling like someone lit a blow torch to my throat while tickling it from the inside with a feather - constantly. (edit: I should add that I was also coughing up things that would make a baby get on bended knee) Long story short - I caved and went to the doctor... And the verdict is - bronchitis. Great.

And just like that - no booze for 5 days.

Aside from "Boy, Booze and Bronchitis", I continue to absolutely love my job and although I do work fairly long hours, I don't at all dread it. I actually hope I have a long career at my current job. Fingers crossed.

So what have you guys been up to? and whats new with you??

Have a great Thursday guys!!

  1. Uhm. I'm going to get the not-so-great news out of the way. I had a BAD case of bronchitis years ago. Like, so bad, and I didn't listen to doctor's warnings ... it turned into pneumonia. So, Carnival and all, listen to your doc, take the meds, get your rest, don't drink, don't push yourself, and get better!!!!

    Now, let's talk about OC. Specifically, he's perfect for you and here's why: because I tell you often how beautiful your smile is, and he's got a great smile too. I don't see how the two of you can't brighten the days of everyone your around with those smiles!

  2. Wow, sounds like you've been up to quite a bit behind the blog screen! You definitely look so happy with OC so it's a great photo for his blog debut. Lol.

    Hope you feel better soon!!

  3. So much to comment on! Love the pic of you too. Also, only a Trini (like myself also) would pair cheese balls with wine! Love it! And finally I was on antibiotics for my bronchitis last year and my doc told me it's fine to have a couple glasses of refreshing beverages and no alcohol is a myth!

  4. Um, CUTE! Both of you, but especially OC, haha! ;) Cheers to the first two Bs on the list, boo to the last one. Hopefully you're finally on the mend now that you've seen the doctor. Glad to hear you're still enjoying your job, and that the things that have been keeping you away from this space have been good, happy things! :)

  7. Ugh, I had bronchitis a few summers ago and it is AWFUL. I also waited way too long to see a doctor (thinking it was a cough that would go away soon) so it lasted for almost three months. Hopefully now that you have the meds it will clear up ASAP!

  13. omg, I had bronchitis in 2011 and I'll never forget that cough!! It was unrelenting and so, so annoying. Ugh, God Bless prescription cough syrup. Time off with booze, ahem, 'socializing' and a boy sounds pretty good to me!

  18. Haha! I always choose alliteration over accuracy as well. Sorry you're sick - get better soon! And I'm sure you'll educate OC on what blogging is all about (although I still don't have Ryan convinced that it's a worthwhile hobby, so maybe not. :P).

  24. Ugh, it sucks that you're sick. I hope you get better soon! (Though it did make for a catchy post title!)

    I love the picture of you with your guy! You guys are adorable, and you both look so happy! :-)

    My husband teases me all the time about blog stuff. He knows I don't make any money on it, but when I'm standing around taking pictures of our dinner, he'll sigh and say things like, "Oh, the life of a blogger's husband!" Haha.
