Mio 5 Days into January

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2013, 8:16 AM
*quickly runs by* WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE. *stops* hi. Sorry. So. No one should ever give me weeks of vacation - which is about what the Christmas season has amounted to. With no commissions, and only those 9 elf projects to keep me busy, I have been spazzing out for what seems like forever. First I made 200 cookies. Then I made another 4 dozen. I cleaned my ENTIRE house. It's spotless :3 . I've read 11 books (i'm not kidding.. this is just since christmas), made a person-sized snow bunny sitting on the couch in my backyard, had a snowball fight (WHEEEE SNOW), and got seven pages of Khet chapter 10 done.

Unfortunately, in there I also got pulled along to the doctor's office a few times (not my doctors).  Poor BlueBonnet, as if she didn't have the worst luck ever already (after breaking two fingers in the past year or so, both right around christmas), managed to drop a bowl on her toe 2 days ago while trying to put it away in the kitchen and ended up getting internal bleeding. Now my family all assumed it was broken... she was screaming in pain and it was well... purple. So despite the snow, we trudged off to the doctors office for an emergency visit. Well, it wasn't a broken toe, but it was bleeding internally. To stem the bleeding (without warning to any of us) the doctor heated a paperclip over a Bunsen burner and proceeded to jab the glowing-hot piece of metal through BlueBonnet's toenail. Blood came pooling out, the wound was cauterized, and we were told her toe nail will probably fall off. Have I mentioned BlueBonnet is only 9 years old? I don't ever want to hear a kid scream like that again >.< *shudder* She's a little trooper though and is running around like normal despite the burned hole in her foot. Needless to say, it's been a pretty crazy Christmas season around here.

On the up side, my internet is FINALLY fixed. They had to replace the brand-spanking-new router with yet another brand-spanking-new router. Apparently the other one has a habit of not working with wifi even though it should. Go figure. But I'm good. I have fast internet (YAY) and I'm looking forward to maybe doing some livestreams and more videos in the future :D *does a little dance*

I shall no go crawling back to my kindle to read a million romance novels like the girl I am and chat with people in the slowest possible method ever. (they those kindle keyboards are small and like to miss-click D:)

PS: before anyone asks (cause someone always does) Yes, I'm still sick. I know.. ridiculous.. I've been sick going on... god.. what has it been now... 9 weeks? The only symptom I have left is coughing. I'm pretty sure I have pnuemonia - but it doesn't seem to want to let go -_- I'm taking my meds and hoping it clears out before I have to go to a real doctors -_____-  That's all for now *runs away*

  • Listening to: The hum of my computer
  • Reading: Khet Ch. 20
  • Watching: Hours of Animal Planet / Nat Geo
  • Playing: Guild Wars 2
  • Eating: Old Cookies
  • Drinking: Water. I finally got a water-filtered bottle.

Well maybe you got the same stinkin flu we had up here (I didn't manage to read all your journals since my inbox was super extra full and dumping most of yours got me another 50 messages ahead..hehe..so I dont know what your earlier symptoms were).... ive been sick for about 5 with a bug that gave my boss pneumonia ... had bronchitis (tight chest) with no other symptoms besides tired as poop for a week or so, then horribly painful tonsils and laryngitis for a week and a half, then mostly just coughing and such after that, the past two weeks have been no more than coughing but it WONT. GO. AWAY and even wakes me up from a sound sleep to cough.... even though I feel fine otherwise.

i think it has been a rather unpleasant flu season this year though from what I've heard in general.
maybe we both can get well soon :)

aww i'm right there with you. Yah this started as a sniffly nose and progressed to just being exaughsted all the time, coughing up a storm, headaches, sinus pressure, fever, so on and so forth. I'm with you in that boat. I can't remember the last time I slept more than an hour or two - my nose is either so stuffy I can't breathe, or I can't stop coughing long enough to fall asleep. -_- I actually fell asleep yesterday at 2 pm reading a book because I was just so tired. I never take naps! I've had it prolly about 10 weeks now. two weeks ago I thought I was getting better.. the coughing had finally stopped, and then it started all over. All my relatives and friends in-town are sick too.. dunno what it is about this particular flu bug but it's hard-hitting and clingy.

If you'd like something to do, I can commission you. =D

Poor kid. One thing my sister likes to say (and only to a point) is "kids bounce". No matter what gets thrown at them, they'll be fine.
It's a good thing it was done without warning, or he might have been stopped or it would have been a worse process.

I do luff commissions <3 they put food on my table. literally lol. I'll probably start getting to work tomorrow on anything that pops up (cause I want to enjoy my last day of freedom~... and still need to take my christmas tree down XD) I totally agree with your sister's point about kids - kids do bounce, thank goodness! I lied to bluebonnet when they did it, told her it wouldn't hurt XD she was quite pissed at me afterwards because obviously it did, but I just didn't want her to freak out about it until after it was done - there's nothing she could have done to stop them, so why cause worry and stress?

She'll be thankful for it in the long run. =) When my friend went to get her daughter's vaccinations done, she was saying she was heartbroken because the poor little bubba screamed. But I was telling her that her daughter will be thankful in the long run.
Send me a note when you have the time to pick up commissions and I'll give you details? =)

Holy shit... Poor Bonnet, but damn, what a trooper. Kids are tough, man! Glad she's doing okay, though, despite the doctor being a jerk and not letting you know what was gonna happen to fix her toe. :grump: Also, I think your sickness is coming up to Canada, because my hubby caught a nasty cold, then I caught it and almost lost my voice because of it. :stare:

WINTER Y U SO CRUEL?!

But I'm glad that you've had a lovely start to your year, all things considered! C:

ooohh, I'm so excited that your Internet is up and running again Mio! And can't wait for that next chapter of Khet to possibly come out :) I love that story to pieces.

And I hope you and BlueBonnet feel better :( The remnants of the flu is still going around and having a toe cauterized is definitely not pretty,

XD she's sort of accident prone. she's got strong bones, but she isn't a very careful person, (and she's a super skinny little girl) so there's nothing to cushion when she gets hurt, and she tends to do things that get her hurt easily XD like walking barefoot on a hard tile floor and dropping a porcelain bowl on her toe XD
