Eff you, Nietzsche

"That which does not kill us makes us stronger" Nietzsche. 

 I think a more accurate statement would be "That which does not kill you puts you one step closer to the Loony Bin"
Loony Bin, eh
This works too

Remember this?  Less than a week ago I was at the end of my rope.  Crying on the bathroom floor.  While I was down there, the universe decided to kick me in the stomach.  More accurately, the groin.  Yep, my sweet baby girl shared her staph infection with me.  I ended up with an abscess ....IN MY GROIN. What the hell?? Abscess and groin are not two words you want in the same sentence.  I am waving the white flag and I get a kick to the head.  It is more than I can deal with.

I find myself crying over nothing, and everything.  I spend most of the day cleaning and doing laundry.  I'm terrified we are never going to get rid of this horrible bug.

On top of it all, I can't do any training.  It totally sucks.  I want to climb in bed and pull the covers over my head.  Of course, I can't do that. So I'm doing the best I can.  I'm trying to hold myself together.  This isn't the worst thing that can happen.  It's just the latest in the never ending drama that seems to be following us.  Since we've moved to Seattle it has been one thing after another.  I think this is just the straw that broke the camel's back.  Does that make me the camel?   I hope not.  

I'm going to regroup and do what I have to do.  Let's hope 14 weeks is enough time to get ready for Boise.


  1. Feel better:) Sending prayers your way!

  2. hang in there! thinking of you, you've really had a rough go of it lately!

  3. Oh man! What a crappy deal! I hope things are turning around now. Staph is nasty; I don't blame you for disinfecting and doing laundry 24/7. I bet your house is cleaner than on OR at this point!

    Feel better soon :)
