Antibiotics and Awards Cure Everything (or so I've heard)

...because I decided to bite down on this here piece of rawhide and ride this sinus infection out until the green is gone and the chest is dry. Without antibiotics. From here on, you can just refer to me as Ally-Get-Your-Snot-Rag Miller. I'm not dead. Yet. But if I was ever tempted to turn away from modern medicine in search of some higher healing, I'm over that. That is not to say that I don't trust God to bring me back around. I've been praying. I've been praying for the waterfall of snot to stop. And the relentless wheezing to cease. And for all of this coughing to give me the 8-pack abs that I so richly deserve. I'm just saying that He's been slow getting around to me. But now it's a matter of principle. I shall refuse the Z-Pack and will just hack until I die a green death or it all goes away. Hmmm...perhaps I shall henceforth refer to myself as Pioneer Miller. I'm going to need some rustic jewelry for that....

Anymucus, last week (or it could have been the week before that) I received the most awesomepants award from my girl, Queenie Jeannie. She has a happy place. We all need one of those. I've been so bad about posting it that when I went to get it just now, I had to scroll through 3 pages of posts to find it. (That also means that I have 3 pages of posts to catch up on x 40 of you = I don't have anything to do for the 3rd week of April...). Here is her beetiful award:

And now I must list 5 bloggers that make me so happy, I wouldn't mind being chased by a bee in a tiara. And they are (in no certain order):

Foxy of The Fox Den
Kelly of Dare to be Domestic
Amanda of It's Blogworthy
Jessalyn of Cape Cod Awesome
Kiran of Masala Chica

I hope I get this again because I have about 20 more that I could give out. Honorary mentions go to Hutch, Surferwife, Sarah, Sara, Kallay, Kay, Kiera, Cindy, Micah, Lisa, BLissed-Out Grandma, Kim, Kelly, Shana, E.D., DG, Salt, Miss Juicy.......

Nyquil, take me away.....


  1. Get well soon, love! I don't know why this flu is taking so long to go away.

  2. Girl, you've got to kick those mean greenies to the curb. Rest up!

    Thanks for the honorable mention. I like when my name is used with the word "honorable" in a sentence. Sure beats the word a-hole!

  3. I'm so glad to see you back. We've missed you! I realize you are standing on principle now with the antibiotics, but I really think you should cave and take the Z-pack. You'll feel better in a day. Trust me...I'm very familiar with sinus infections and the Z-pack is your friend!

    Feel better.

  4. Oh girl, THANKS A TON! I so wished you felt better though. That being sick thing is for the birds!!

  5. YAY you aren't dead!!! I definitely suggest Mucinex. You know...the commercials with the gross green mucus monsters. That stuff works like nobody's biz-ness.

    That award is cute and thank you for the honorable mention. :) I'm with DG..."honorable" and Salt don't normally end up in the same sentence so I will take it!

  6. You poor thang! Damn that infection. I never took antibiotics, either. Women are strong. :)

    AND OH MY STARS if that isn't the cutest award ever then I don't know what is. A BEE? IN A TIARA? Too much. THANK YOU!!!

  7. Boo to still feeling sickly...I've picked up a slightly less terrible version of the man-cold so I'm still functioning.

    Congrats on the award and thanks for the honorable mention :)


  8. EEE - Thank you!!!! It's so cute!

    I hope you get to feeling better soon. I agree with Salt, Mucinex commercials are seriously gross BUT it works so well! I'm battling allergies this week and it sucks. Feel better soon girl!! ox

  9. Ugh, no fun lady. FEEL BETTER!!

  10. gaaaaah i hope you feel better soon!!

    i have been so unworthy of any awards lately as i have been the suckiest blogger alive- but thank you for the lovin'! :)

  11. I think the 5 blogs you chose are PERFECT! I love each and every one of them.

    And feel better already, lady!!

  12. TAKE THE Z-PACK!! Sinus infections are the worst. You have to attack it and knock it out or it will surface again later. Heres to hoping you are snot free in record time.

  13. awww shuuucks. thanks for the mention. its been weighing on my that i still haven't even technically accepted you last award! (and three others) ohhhh im behind

    and i just am getting over the nastiest sinus thing too, sans drugs. i dont know why i felt better than them this time around.

  14. thanks for the honorary mention :) feel better!!

  15. You are STILL sick??? Damn girl, go to the doctor already!!! At least get some good drugs to sleep with! Ya know?? We gotta suck up all this free healthcare we've got! *eyeroll*


    Glad you finally put up my award!!!! Yeah, I'm such a bitch. But I'm going to Italy, so I'm down with it.

  16. I'm missing ewe. Just sayin.


That's it, let it all out....
