Monday was Hell. Rebel and Wear White.

I would like to begin by throwing up a big middle finger to photobucket.  How in the h*ll can you have 30% space one day and the next be at 10% over capacity?  I am so sick and tired of these hosting joints trying to take advantage of me (and likely others) to make a quick buck.  I deleted a ton of back up pics and STILL it won't budge.  As if I don't know what the tactic is.  Good luck with that!

On another note I would like to formally announce that I am sicker than I have ever been in my adult life, with the exception of the walking pneumonia that damn near claimed my life last year.  Monday consisted of the following:  get up, cry, go back to sleep, get up, drag down hallway, watch lung cancer survivors on Bold & Beautiful, cry, watch commercial about Lucille Ball dying from undetected heart disease, cry, pass out, wake up, sneeze 18 times straight, eat a chocolate, cry...I think you get the idea.  Finally hauling it to the computer to see photobucket wreaking havoc unnecessarily sent me right to the kleenex box.

Jalapeno Cucumber Margarita in the distance...
someday I will drink it  again.  Maybe today.
Straight out of the bottle.  Without the mix.
Please allow me a moment to dry my eyes.

On a 100% more positive note I want to thank EVERYONE who is taking part in the white denim challenge we're having right now.  I managed to sit up for 10 minutes yesterday and read your posts during which time I cheered (and cried some more) out of sheer glee!! I am loving the outfit combos and getting so many awesome ideas.  I don't give a rat's rear end...I wear those mother's year round.

Up today is:  
I'll do my best to check in w/all of you later today.  Want to check out everyone's outfits and catch up on blogs, but not sure I'll be able to.  Must get mobile in order to have my post ready for Thursday if I'm not in the hospital.  Only kinda joking.

awww I really do hope you get better. I will be sending good vibes your way.

I admire your gusto in ficking off photobucket... I fear the power it has over me, and try and bow down to it lol

Debby said...

Carrie, call the Doctor, Hunnie! Get some rest and don't worry about us. So sorry you are still not feeling well. It's horrible to get that sick... it wreaks havoc on our emotions. Sending big hugs your way. xoxo

Jenni Austria Germany said...

ugh that sounds terrible! but i agree with you... that drink (and food) should be enough to motivate you back to health!

LyddieGal said...

Your still sick?! Stop blogging and go back to bed!
When you feel better, maybe think about switching to flickr?
It's $24 a year, but unlimited. I've had it for two years now and have been happy with the service.

Well, off to check out the white jeans!

Valerie said...

Carrie, I'm starting to worry about you! Are you okay? Maybe you should go to the dr? Let me know if I can do anything to help you! In the meantime, I hope you're getting lots of rest and drinking gatorade. Thanks for the sweet commentary above and on my post today. :) And thanks for putting together the winter white challenge! It was really fun and I'm loving seeing everyone's outfits!

Josie said...

Carrie, I'm serious. You need to get better STAT. I think I'm going to have to fly out in a desperate attempt to make you feel better. It's not that I'd object to the sunshine, of course, but I don't know if my professors would accept the excuse that I need to go save someone's life in LA... Sorry. All I can possibly do is recommend a lot of hot tea, plenty of chocolate, and seriously, a doctor visit. Since you're apparently dying. All the best, my dear, and let me know if I can possibly do anything!

Katie said...

I just upload my pics through Blogger. Thats going to lead to me having a massive breakdown and throwing the computer someday isnt it? (Most things in life are going that way for me so what's the difference...)
I'm worried about you! Are you curled up on the couch? Do you have Kleenex and juice and those cough drops that taste like candy? Do I need to send things your way?!

Stacey said...

You need some soup:-). I think soup fixes everything. I know The Chef will take care of you, but you may need to stay away from the computer. Rest up girl. You're a trooper, so i know you'll be better in no time:-)

Kara said...

Aww I'm sorry you're still so sick! Rest up and get better soon!

On another note, I don't know if you saw my comment a few days ago or not, but I did manage to find some white denim, so I'm still on for posting it tomorrow!
