The Crud

When you turn into a walking snot ball you have "The Crud" You cough up mucus and your nose runs constantly therefor the use of the word "crud".
You go to the office and you cough and blow your nose for an hour and a coworker asks "what's wrong with you?" Yo respond, "I have the crud".

That describes me perfectly!

I have had the crud since the first weekend of December.
I came down with it while we were in Las Vegas for my 50th birthday celebration.
The pipeliner had bought tickets for a favorite singer of mine way back in August, the month of my 50th birthday.
We were so excited to get away after the busy summer and fall, and then I get sick the first night there!
I came home and laid on the couch for about a week.
I  gave in and went to the doctor.
I finally started to feel better.
Then the grandson brought home a cold from pre-school.

We all caught that!

I had to sell my tickets to the Bears/Packers game
(Another birthday present from the pipeliner)
because I was to sick to go.

The week of Christmas I made my way back to the Dr. again!

I sure didn't get a lot of decorating done this year
or shopping for that matter.

We finally ventured out on New Years Day.
As I strapped the grandson into his car seat he looked at me 
and said
"Grandma I don't feel good".
Those words started round 3 of another bout with the crud!

I am not kidding you,
80% of my facebook friends have had the crud!

My mom has it.
The pipeliner has it.
The daughter and her husband have it.
The grandson is finally getting over it.

I am still stuck with it!

We have been through 5 boxes of kleenex.
A couple of bags of Halls.
(The pipeliner found Sucrets on his last trip to the drug store,
those things are the bomb!)
A whole bottle of hand soap.

I have ate oranges and apples,
Drank a couple of gallons of tea.

We have sanitized about every inch of the house!

The pipeliner finally decided we need some sun and warmth to get rid of this crud!

He booked us a trip to Florida!

28 more days until we go!

I sure hope I am better by then!



  1. I'm so sorry that you are sick Liz. Hope you feel better soon and that you have a great trip to Florida.

  2. Oh sounds terrible! I hope you have a great trip and enjoy the warm, sunny days.

  3. Glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humor through it all. And if you're a Bear's fan (like I am since forever) you probably didn't miss much but still. I hope FL does the trick....what a sweet hubby you have. I hope you all get better like NOW! Take care.

    1. Thank you! My hubby is the Bears fan, I am a huge Packers fan. :)
      But I still love him! lol..

  4. I hope you feel better soon. The kids have the crud here this week.

  5. I sure hope that you are feeling better now! I am really hoping to avoid the crud! : ) Happy belated 50th birthday!!!!!!
