“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.” Seriously I feel like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz after these past 2 weeks. Folks when I say I now know what hell is truly like, believe me. I have never, in my life, been as sick as I was for 3 weeks with a severe upper respiratory infection and bronchitis. But what made it a bajillion times worse is that I had to travel for 2 of those weeks. The first week I had to stay in a hotel up at my office for the first week as we had a 5-day long summit which required us to be there a good 12 hours a day. And since I live about 1.5-2 hours away with traffic I was truly unable to drive the distance so I had to pay for a hotel. No, work didn’t pay for it. Let’s not go there as that’s a very, VERY touchy spot. I did it for my own safety. I then got home on a Friday night only to have to scramble, while on my 2nd round of meds and being forced by the doctor to have chest x-rays to see if I had pneumonia (good news I didn’t), to pack and try to make Mr. Fantabulous (who was still sick himself) food for the week as I had to fly out to San Diego butt-early (technical time) Sunday morning for the week.

I. AM. EXHAUSTED. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. I’m just done. These past 2 weeks honestly pushed me to my breaking point. It got so bad that literally a few nights while out in Cali I called Mr. Fantabulous in tears. Work just broke me. Like my spirit is broken.

Thing is, I’m not one to really get down or even depressed really. But right now I just feel disconnected if that makes sense. I think it’s at the point where everything is just getting to me. The house still isn’t done. It’s like one thing after the other after the other is preventing us from our goal of getting it on the market this April. Maybe it’s possessed? LOL

It’s one of those days where I just need a hug

Hey TKW Family!  My apologies for getting this out super late on Sunday but this past week I was the sickest I have ever been in my life and I was traveling for work on top of it. I got home late Friday night, spent all day Saturday trying to get a teensy bit of rest in between the 9 million things I had to get done for my super early flight out this morning to California.

I’m sitting in the hotel right now, fighting to keep my eyes open but I cannot miss posting a weekly menu.

I have SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH to catch you guys up on but let’s do that later this week k?  I need to get to bed as my day starts super early tomorrow and it’s going to be another hellish week.

Happy Sunday TKW Family from a very sick TKW household. Both of us are down for the count with this death plague that is going around. So far the doctor doesn’t think it’s the flu but severe upper respiratory infections but I don’t know, he’s had it for 10 days and I’m going on 5 so we’ll see. So it’s Superbowl Sunday. Who’s out there partying? What are your game day eats? Normally we have a super bowl party but we didn’t this year as one, we’re sick and two, I’m not home. I’m actually out of town this week for work.

I’m not too happy about this as I don’t feel well and you know what it’s like when you’re sick you want to be home in your bed surrounded by your stuff. But since I’m not Oprah-rich, I must work. I don’t mind really as I do love what I do. It’s just the worst timing. I hate leaving Mr. Fantabulous when he’s so sick.

But anyway back to the game tonight. I’ll probably only watch some of the ads and most definitely the halftime show. I mean HELLO – #TeamJT Love me some Justin Timberlake! The only thing I do miss are the foods served during the game. I did stop at a local Walmart up here and grab some food for the week since my room has a full kitchen. SWEET!

Lord let this week go fast!

Hey TKW Family!  Wow is it Sunday already? So let met take a poll of you guys. How many of you have had or currently have that nasty, NASTY flu/death plague going around? I’m battling it (and I think winning as I’m not too, too bad) but Mr. Fantabulous has it. While he hasn’t gone to the doctor’s yet (he’s going tomorrow if he’s not better), I don’t think it’s the flu everyone else has. But instead I think he has a really bad upper respiratory infection. He’s been down for the count since Wednesday. Apparently the lead singer of his band got sick first and by Wednesday he texted everyone saying he was pretty sick. A few hours later it surfaced with Mr. Fantabulous as well as a few of the other guys.

Then at work I found out that an entire department all had the flu and have been out all week. Many of my friends have it. If you’re here in Pittsburgh I honestly blame the weather as to why folks are so sick. No I’m not a doctor but when you go from 65F one day, 27 the next, -12F the following and 38F the next it’s inevitable that people are going to get sick. I feel bad though as I hate seeing him sick. Coughing, wheezing and just flat-out crappy. I’d say the ONLY benefit, if you will of him getting sick, is that he’s actually resting and taking a break. He needs it, you know. We all do.

So on top of taking care of him most of last week/weekend, my week was just a nightmare. I swear it literally was just a week of Mondays. Every day was worse than the prior and by Friday I was so frustrated that I actually asked Mr. Fantabulous if he needed me to run to Home Depot or Lowes. I just needed a break. LOL Yes it has to be that bad for me to ask something like that. But again, I do love what I do so I deal.

Okay, enough complaining. So tell me about YOUR week! What’s going on in your lives?

Let’s talk about the house remodel, shall we? It’s coming along rather nicely. We were able to hang 3 of the largest bar mirrors in the billiards room. I still have to clean them. Once he’s better we can hang the neon signs and the rest of the mirrors/signs. At that point the billiards room will be done. I should be able later today to start moving my cookbooks down into the office supply room downstairs that we just finished. Did you see the pictures and video on Instagram? I’m in LOVE with them!
What’s your favorite room in your house?

Hey hey hey, happy Sunday TKW Family!  What’s shakin’ peeps?  I’m tired this morning. Actually I’m not so much tired I guess but rather I have a nasty, nasty headache. It actually woke me up a few times. Are you a dreamer? Meaning when you sleep do you dream? If so, do you remember your dreams? No, not trying to psychoanalyze you but just curious. I’ve always been one to dream vividly and often repeat dreams. Last night though, last night was “odd”. I can’t quite remember what I dreamt about which is unlike me as I remember them always but it was like I was dreaming really hard. Like I woke myself up a few times with my eyes squinched (go with it) shut really tight and almost like I was forcing a dream. Odd…

Maybe I’m just worn out, maybe I’m just old. LOL Ah but seriously I’m so happy last week was over. Talk about crazy. As always I was super busy with my job as well as TKW (yeah!) and then here. It was one of those weeks where I “felt” beat. But I”m tough and pushed through. So we got a bunch more done in the house here. Mr. Fantabulous and I made (well okay he did, I just held the wood) 9 new shelves for the downstairs office supply room, painted them (3 coats each side) and this morning he just hung them. I can’t wait to share the pictures. I’ll give a sneak peek on Instagram so be sure you’re following me there, k?

This weekend was a really, really nice weekend for us as we took a break from the house/work and did what we call “normal people stuff“. Fridays, as you know, is pizza night in my house. That’s a given.  Once the pizza was done, sliced and plated, we actually ate in our media room.. ON A COUCH while watching TV!  While this seems like not a big deal to most, for us this was huge. It had been 8+ years since we had been able to do that. Now we can and it’s so, SO nice!
Wishing you one fantabulously amazing week!
