So far on staycation.......

Well, didn't think I would be posting again this soon. But, life has a way of changing plans. Felt pretty cranky and tired for 2 days at least and then this morning woke with a stinging, itchy rash on my back. Took a mirror and looked and said. ____!  Went to the doc today and have the Shingles. Lovely. We had some plans for a short road trip and I'm still determined to take it, even so with pills this big to stop the rash from worsening.

Antivirals to stop the Shingles at the starting point. Can you believe the size of these pills. Had to cut those in half.
Between that and cream I'm determined to go on this road trip soon.
I lazed around today and Miss Abbie could tell I didn't feel so good.

We rented this movie to watch tonight.

This is a long if you rent it, pop 3 bowls of popcorn.
But, it was definitely high action and you will sit on the edge of your seat...or the couch....LOL

Sometimes, Abbie peaked out of my arms when the parts were not as scarey, like when the world wasn't falling apart in the movie.
Then, when the real action started and the world was falling apart, the end, she did open her eyes.

Let's hope dogs can't get chicken pox virus.

Because she has been velcroed to me all day and night.
I did throw a few stitches in a freebie by The Sampler Girl, I Love Watermelon.

While I snacked on this Praline Ice Cream tonight. A great Summertime comfort food.

Back to sleepy time. I can't believe tomorrow is already mid-week. Where does the time go?


  1. May the shingles disappear soon! Take care youself, Jennifer.

  2. The SHINGLES?? Oh RATS!!!
    I've heard they aren't fun...hope you are able to head it off before it gets too bad.
    Take care of yourself.

  3. Shingles!!!! Oh no! Hope you get better real fast! I think it must be such a comfort to have Abbie velcroed to you. So cute!!!!!

  4. Man oh man Jennifer! I don't exactly know what shingles are, but know they are a nuisance! Hope those big old pills give you big old results, and fast! You are on stay-cation!!


  5. I'm so your vacation has been side tracked by shingles. I hope you caught it early and don't have too bad a time with it. Feel better!

  6. Yummy the ice cream looks so good.
    I had shingles once and then got the shot after they went away I hope they never come back again.
    Good luck to you.

  7. Sorry to hear you've gotten shingles during your holidays! That sure sucks!!!!! I hope those antivirals take care of them in quick order so you can enjoy your road trip!

    That's a great new start

    Your dog is adorable!

  8. Yowza! I can't believe it! Hopefully you'll be feeling better soon. Usually stress brings out this..right? Hmm...wonder how that could have happened?!

  9. So sorry to here that you have Shingles! I hear that hey are not fun! Those pills sure are something.

    Hope you get to feeling better and can enjoy your road trip!

  10. I hope your shingles disappear fast. My FIL and SIL suffer from that so I know it's not nice.

    Pralines & Cream ice cream is my second favorite next to Chocolate and you've reminded me I have some in the freezer. With temps close to 100 today, I think I need me some.

  11. I've never had shingles but I'm sure I will someday, as I had a serious case of chicken pox as a kid. I hope you're pain free and feeling better soon!
