Mr. Maximus

Yep, mean Mr. Mucus Maximus moved in to my sinuses and chest yesterday afternoon. I went home after work feeling extremely bad. I had some soup and went to bed. I didn't sleep very well since most of the night was spent coughing and playing the hot and cold game. I guess its just allergies from the high grass pollen we have right now. I guess it didn't help much by mowing my grass all day on sunday.
So I am taking some Mucinex and some antibiotics today and trying to make Mucus make haste and leave. I had to work as I have exhausted all of my sick days while taking care of my Mom. I have to build them back up again. I just had to whine and show every one the ugly Mucus Maximus,,hes meaner than the Grinch.
Have a great Tuesday!

Mr. Mucus Maximus is terrible! Sorry you are not feeling well. Maybe you should start wearing a mask (like a Dr. mask?) when mowing the grass. I never mow the grass, because the one time I did I ended up sicker than a dog. I was told I should try wearing a mask next time, but I haven't risked it yet. Right now there are 2 people living with me that are more than happy to mow it! :) See you tomorrow...

Oh nooooooo, not Mr. Mucus Maximus!!!! UGH! Poor dear, I do hope the antibiotics and other meds help you get rid of HIM reallll soon. It doesn't help that you still have to go into work...just make sure you rest in the evenings! xoxo

SERIOUS bummer. Do get well soon, my friend. Mr. Mucus Maximus is no friend of mine, either!

Whinning is a good thing, when you are sick it is part of the illness. Mucinex is really good too. Get some rest for sure, you maybe a little run down. You have been one busy lady.
Thank you for coming by, I am a winner every time you come by.
Thank you, mary

Do take care and spoil yourself with a day at home, old movies and something dreamy to eat...crackers and chicken soup!

Sorry you are not feeling well, Bethie! I don't normally have bad allergies but right now I'm battling some serious sinus headaches that hurt even into my neck, so there must be a lot of some kind of allergen out there right now. Hope you get to feeling better!

Shopgirl said...

Just checking in to see how you are, but you are probably resting...remember that's the best thing you can do.
Be Well, mary

What is it like to breathe easily. I'd like to know! I swear the older I get, the more asthma and mucus stuff I have. Get well, soon, Beth!

mUCUS mAXIMUS how funny is that. Sorry to hear you are sick Beth. Loved scrolling down though and reading your mom's progress pictures.

I posted a few pics on my blog. First inkling I've had to blog in ever so long.

Take care of you kiddo and hopefully you are feeling better by now.
