Pneumonia! It what's up.

Hello! If you've been wondering what's up with me - the answer is pneumonia. Let your old pal Lydia tell you a little something about pneumonia, friends; it sucks dong and you should avoid it

In case you were like - where has that heifer been? That’s where. I kept teaching my lovely students and taking care of my kiddo squiddos, but other than that I just lay around my house being pathetic and taking antibiotics. I got sick in early April and my pulmonologist just cleared me about a week ago.

I was so sick, I couldn't do anything. I could barely make it to work. I couldn't go to Bunco and take my friends' money because I couldn't stay awake past 8:45pm. I was so sick, my friends had to bring my family meals. I WAS SO SICK I HAD NO DESIRE TO DRINK WINE FOR OVER A MONTH. In fact, I pretty much had no desire to do anything other than make sure my kids were looked after and then nap.

Actually, that’s not entirely true. You know what I did a lot of? Watching TV. I binged watched Orphan Black and it’s mine now. It’s my show and I love it the most. My oldest decided that she wanted to watch Dr. Who (because her best friend is obsessed with it) and I was like giddy up! So we watched a lot of that, too. 

Jonathon Scott tweeted this picture of
himself. It is perfection.
But mostly, I watched Property Brothers and Love It or List It on HGTV while snuggling Mini. But that's a whole other post. Let's just say that Drew and Jonathon are now close personal friends (in my imagination) and they think a trip to Virginia to meet us and redo the Mommy Room is in their future (also not true). But they did tweet me. That much is real.

Speaking of Twitter - if you're friends with me on Facebook or Twitter, you already know all this stuff and you may not have even noticed that I haven't actually blogged in months. Seriously, I'm on Facebook all the time - except that lately, Facebook is super weird and even if you "like" me you still might not see any of my stuff. 

I only bring it up because I had a bunch of people contacted me after Mother's Day saying how bummed they were that they didn't know about the stuff we were doing to help moms in need, and they would have gotten involved. Except that my Facebookings didn't show up in their feed and so they didn't see anything until after the fact.

So you can try this (see below) if you want.

It's been a while since I've blogged so it may take me a while to get back on the horse. New post tomorrow! And it's an angry rant!

xoxo, Lydia

  1. Yay! You're back! Glad you're finally kicking pneumonia in the taco!

  2. Been there, done that (21/2 months). Glad you're feeling better.

  3. Hugs. Being that sick is awful; glad you're seeing a specialist to get better. Glad you are writing again btw!

  4. Sucks you were sick, glad your back. Mommyshorts went to Facebook and then told me (cause we are personal friend, ya know, just like you and those guys on TV) that is you can sign up for notifications and then you can see posts. If you click on the little arrow next to Liked on the RFML page and then select get notifications then we'll get a little notice on the globe thing when you say something neat!

  5. Glad you're back, and ready for the angry rant!

  6. I had pneumonia about 1 1/2 years ago and ended up in the emergency room on the night before Thanksgiving. I still have a horrible cough when my allergies act up or I get a cold and I never had any symptoms in my chest before. All my colds/allergies were in my nose and head before. It sucks and at least for me, your body never acts the same. I hope you do not have the same issues that I do.

  7. Pneumonia sucks. I've got it now, and my husband is deployed...so I get to do it all alone, with 2 kids...fun times! Glad you're feeling better!

  8. At the tail end of my pneumonia right now. Luckily the kids are at camp. Steroids make me look and feel like a big fat tomato in a hotbox. Just discovered your blog and love it!
