Monday Musings and Roadtripping…

travelling-1348334_1920

Some of my LWL friends and I went on our annual summer trip for a long weekend away by ourselves to shop, eat out, drink a few cocktails, maybe go swimming and stop at a Farmer’s Market for sure…

We did most all of that and it was a fun weekend, although hot as blazes in the Midwest!  I forgot my anxiety med at home and had to have my doctor fax a prescription to a pharmacy where we were so I could get through the weekend.  By the second day without having it and finally taking a pill that night, I was already beginning a complete breakdown stupid panic attack.  I will never forget my medicine again!

I have to admit that my possible pneumonia or Zika virus lingering cold and cough also contributed to shopping apathy and I was a little disappointed to only bring home some tomatoes and blueberries from the Farmer’s Market.  Luckily my friends worked overtime to keep the boutique owners afloat!

      1. Oh, then a do-over is a must! Baby gifts get girls all “oooooh, isn’t this a-dorable”-y. 😊

  6. Sounds fun! My youngest daughter and I had the reverse road trip experience: we just finished a three day weekend where everyone else in the family was out of town. It was just as fun, honestly. And we slept better. 🙂

    Seriously, though, I agree that you should make a doctor’s appointment. A cough that lingers is one of those things that should be checked. Sorry to sound like a strict mom. But I am!

    1. 😦 Yes, ma’am. Haven’t felt well since our flight. Probably airline germs…

  7. You know this idiot had togoogle LWL to know what it meant. I need my morning cup of coffee. Zika – don’t even kid like that.

    Happy Monday

    1. Sorry for the abbreviation, lol. Hope you got your coffee! The plague of the anxiety riddled mind — I went to lie down while my friends were downstairs in the bar and by the time they came up I’d already looked up zika symptoms and heart attack symptoms and was in full blown panic mode in my head! Back to normal now 🙂 you have a good day, too!

      1. LOL You sound like Allie. She gets one sniffle and she goes straight to google. According to her medical investigations she has suffered from everything from Zika to Ebola to Cancer to ulcers.

      2. LOL, my doctor won’t spell things for me anymore cause she doesn’t want me to look them up! The internet is a dangerous thing for some of us 🙂

      2. LWL is ladies who lunch, Robert 😉 I only have to Google British slang and French words that my friends post — and sometimes medical conditions that my anxiety conjures up 🙂
