Blog: as an Adjective

I’ve never liked the word blog as a noun. It’s everywhere & I have learned to embrace what it stands for, but I can never tell someone I keep a blog without feeling like I’m admitting something dreadfully embarrassing. Not to mention how it sounds; the word falls out of my mouth like a frog’s tongue shooting out for a bug. So what then? e-journal? cyber-diary? online notebook?

As I contemplate I’m hovering over a mug of steamy vinegar water in hopes of alleviating the pain of a sinus infection. The pain of which is far more than the dull piercing in my right cheek, but the incapability of being an effective mother, wife, or really human being in general. I’m in a fog mentally; physically my nose is raw from the 4 rolls of toilet paper deemed kleenex & the fountain of a substance you’d prefer me not to describe is really starting to gross me out.
So, B-L-A-H-G. that’s what it is. blahg. I write here to report something we’ve accomplished and this is what I have to report. My poor children are surviving, but are stir-crazy & starving for brain food. My husband is working his own job, & mine. & I am blahg.
From what I’ve read these types of ailments can go on for a while. It’s difficult not to cry when thinking about this, but I’m trying to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Everyday I wake up & think, ‘surely there will be a day when I awake & don’t immediately reach for the TP at my bedside, or the ibuprofen for the pain.’ This thought spurs me to get through each day (ungracefully, to say the least). I’m not dying of this, my life is generally terrific. It simply amazes me at how my soul cries when my body ails me. It may sound dramatic, but blahg.
In summary, however, the sun is shining & I hear tell of 60degree weather this weekend. All around spring is coming, regardless of uninvited snowfalls & freezing temperatures.
The bulbs emerge:
The forget-me-nots blossom (my favorite flower, so you know):
forget me nots
And my sinus cavity will drain & heal before I perish…
I’m avoiding antibiotics. I’m on a steady regimen of horse radish eating, neti-pot using, vinegar water drinking, colloidal silver sniffing & steamy shower taking. Any other recommendations for this condition?

    Hang in there! I had sinus infections about twice a year as a child, so I know that unending pain and anguish you're suffering. It will get better soon!

    I also used to be kinda embarrassed to admit that I blogged. I started blogging in about '00, back before people even used the word "blog". I still have family members that laugh at me. My blogging style has changed a lot over time, but I think it's one of those wonderful things we can use to not only relieve stress with, but also share our life with our loved ones that aren't close. It's an awesome low impact creative outlet too. 😉

    Oh no!!! I didn't know you were going through all that. As you know I, too, have been blahg for almost 2 months now. Somehow the kids do survive! If you want the girls to come hang at our house so you can rest just let me know:)

    Hope you get better soon. Steeping pieces of ginger and honey in hot water helps me sometimes. 😉

    thanks for the encouragement! I am starting to feel a bit better. still in a haze, but with sunshine like we had today it can't stick around too much longer!
    Anelle, that's me! But, i've learned to embrace it as a way to inspire me to have something to show for myself…
    & thanks kal. hope you're having fun on your trip!

    I had another sprouting avocado pit today, and thought about saving it for you!

    oh you're sweet anelle. We've got one, but it's not doing anything…(again)
