Coughing and Crowns, not to be confused with Crown Royale!

Yes, sickness has hit me.  I can't believe it....even with some major chronic illness issues, I really never get sick.  But today was my lucky day (hey, maybe I should buy a lotto ticket???) After much harassment from my son, I broke down and went to the doctor.  I love my doctor and he is a super guy but he has generally dealt with major illness with me and when he looked at my records he realized he had never had to treat me for like a "regular illness."  I was diagnosed with severe bronchitis bordering on pneumonia and if I don't improve in the next 24 hours I have to do chest x-rays because he feels sure I have developed full blown pneumonia. I don't know about all that but I do know I don't have time for this.  This is a super busy and pressure filled week at work and I need to be on top my game.  ARGH!!!

When I came home with my very large dose of steroids, antibiotics, cough meds, and an inhaler, I washed it all down with a chocolate Frosty AFTER I put on my crown because I have just determined life is just better with a crown.  I love my crown.  I wish it were bigger and sparklier but I am working on that!  I feel like after what I have been through over the last 2+ years I have earned lots of pretty sparkly things, especially a crown!  Oh, and not to mention it holds my hair back just as perfectly as the standard "Mom" headband called sunglasses!
Of course, this is a pre-sick crown day!  But see how it just makes everything look happier!  By the way did I mention I have found a new hobby....being eccentric in the most Southern of ways.  Tomorrow maybe we will talk about my Spring purse that is waiting patiently in the closet for Easter so that it can make it's debut (oh, and I think I found my Easter dress today as well!)


  1. I'm sorry you're sick! I pray you feel better real soon.

  2. I'm sorry you're sick! I pray you feel better real soon.

  3. I'm glad you went to the doctor, and hope you feel better. Sparkle is a healing element. Love you!

  4. YEEEEEESSSSSSSSS re: crowns making everything a bit better!!! I even wore mine in labor with each child!!! :-D

  5. Oh no I hate you have been sick. I strongly believe Mary Poppins was right medicine goes down with sugar so I buy candy every time I pick up a prescription.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
