Yes, I kind of planned my posts weird by telling you all the story about meeting Candy yesterday, and then putting up the exact same photo for Gitz Bits today. But this was by far the most exciting thing that happened last Friday.

I mean, the doctor did come and prescribe the medication that Candy picked up and delivered for me, but I refrained from asking the doctor if I could take a picture of her for my blog.

That’s an awkward conversation just waiting to happen. “You see, I have this blog and I tell my readers every.single.detail. of every.single.day.”

Before I know it, she’d order a psych evaluation along with my blood work.

Did I mention Candy didn’t come empty-handed? She is the queen of all things healthy, and I’m the queen of frozen double stuffed Oreos, so this was her attempt to convert me to organic.

I have to say, it was a very good start. Because this picture was taken the day after she came, and you can probably tell the bag is half empty.

Every time that Jessica calls on her way home from work, I say “Hello.” and she opens with, “Sara. You sound awful.” This is Riley’s version of that conversation. Every day we lay in bed and every day he gives me this look. He doesn’t have the words, but I know he’s looking at me saying, “Sara. You sound awful.”

But dang, he is cute when he is sympathetic, isn’t he???

These next two days’ photos are what I bought with an Apple gift card I got for my birthday from Susie’s family and her mom, Linda. This little Bluetooth keyboard that works with my iPad is d to the i to the v to the i to the n to the e.

[Ok, that was way simpler to say in my head than it was to type.]

When I’m laying in bed with Padma and I have something longer to type, like... say... a blog post, this keyboard is a life saver. It’s even lighter than the iPad to set on my lap and makes quick work of a lengthy post.

[Because, let’s not kid ourselves. I’m never short-winded.]

This was the other part of the gift card... it’s the Padma cover, and it folds to give it more of an angle. This was on backorder and just came this past week... I have to say it makes an impressive difference in functionality when using the onscreen keyboard. Love it.

And it reminds me of a Trapper Keeper I used in junior high. I’m all about nostalgia. And let’s face it, Trapper Keepers are about the only thing I remember fondly about junior high.

I know, it’s redundant. But people... it rains way too much around here.

We’ll close the week with this sentiment from Riley about the lung infection I’ve got going on.

We are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
