Another Update?

My ability to write (or think) any deep thoughts is taking a back seat to life, in general.

I've had a bit of a sinus headache for a few weeks, but it is pollen season down here (When the temp drops, all the plants and trees that have been dormant for the summer start to bloom). But now I have an earache and a scratchy throat.
Somebody gave me an illness and I'm afraid it might be my Sorority Girl (she had it for 6 weeks!)

I started getting comments on a post I wrote 18 months ago! I've written over 200 posts here, and less than 5 of them have been about Fibromyalgia. My profile says I try not to whine about my health. Apparently ONE troll has only read ONE post and decided I'm a whiny drama queen.

Of course, it was an anonymous troll and obviously a troll that doesn't have Fibromyalgia.

Friday night,we went to see Robin Williams. We had tickets to see him in the Spring, but he had to get a new heart valve and just rescheduled his FL shows.
He did 90 minutes, while barely stopping for breath. He even made sips of water part of his routine. It was definately a show "for adults only". His best stuff was about the committees that designed men's and women's bodies, Viagra and his heart surgery. He threw in some great local humor.

Grandma Sunshine arrives in FL tomorrow. We'll take her down to her place and get it opened for the winter and get her car back on the road.

SHOWCASE OF CITRUS is open for the season! We're hoping to get there this weekend and get lemons and Ruby Red Grapefruit.

Next Saturday, (at 6am, when I show up at work with a gallon of coffee) officially starts Winter Retail Forest season. Longer work hours (ok with me). I got a sneak peek at some of our holiday decor for the store and I really love it.

I'm reading Julie and Julia again. I read it before I saw the movie, and after attempting to slog through some Jane Austen, I decided to go for something light.

I'm off to eat breakfast and (maybe) go to work and (maybe) unpack 100 boxes.

Stay tuned for (probably) another update in about a week.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well and hope you're perky and healthy again soon.

I would love to see Robin Williams!

1) My mom has fibromyalgia. It's not fun. Unfortch, it's hereditary in nature. Yeah for me.
2) SO jealous about Robin Williams.
3) SO jealous about Showcase of Citrus. I must get myself to the DFM.
4) Not so jealous about winter retail season. Did that for too many years.
5) I recommend reading "My Life in France" by Julia Child as a supplement to Julie & Julia. It was so fascinating.
6) Feel better soon.

You poor woman. Sinus pain is the pits. I hope all of you feels better soon. But that's nice about the citrus and Robin williams and good books to read. Kind of cancels out (maybe?) the upcoming retail season.

Oh, I hope you feel better soon!

I want to read Julie/Julia before I see the movie on DVD. I should probably do that soon...

Robin Williams sounded great! I'd love to see him sometime.

Meh, ignore the trolls. What do they know...? I've been following your blog forever and I never thought you were whiny or drama queeny.

Okay, I'm not being a troll here because you know I love you, but I can't imagine a worse way to spend 90 minutes than watching Robin Williams. The fact that he is so frantic he can't even be bothered to take time to breath is exactly what I hate about watching him.

Now that I've put a damper on that, I hope you feel better.
