I haven't done one damn thing today. I laid in Mr. Moon's chair and watched a Jeff Lewis marathon. I don't even know the name of the program. Interior Therapy? Something like that. Whatever. I don't much care for Mr. Lewis's interior design but I see that he has a vision and can turn it into reality REAL FAST and I love his assistant, Jenny, and his maid, Zoila, and I like him fine too.
Here's what I mainly learned today: Having your house redone by Jeff Lewis in five days is REALLY stressful and you have to spend the last night before "the reveal" in a hotel where you drink wine with your partner and say, "Wow, this has been a really stressful week."

I couldn't have swept the floor today if you'd held a gun to my head. It took me all day long to wash the dishes. The breakfast dishes.
We had smoothies for breakfast.

Mr. Moon is getting sick too. He can hardly talk. That's fine with me because I don't feel like talking. Lily actually went to the doctor because her throat hurt so bad. No, it is not strep.

So do not come see me. Do not ask me to do anything. I can't. I could give you this virus but I don't want to and you don't want it.

I have to go lay down again.

My teeth hurt.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. then, Ms Moon, don't do anything. don't even try to do anything until you are well. It will all wait. and if it doesn't then, well, it doesn't.

  2. Poor you. My baby girl is also sick.

  3. Damn, the Ashville crud! That really sucks. Hope that you take it easy and take care of yourself. Lots of good soup and rest!

  4. I love Jeff Lewis. Love Zoila and Jenny, too.

    Sad you don't feel good. And that your teeth hurt.

  5. It took you all day to wash the breakfast dishes .... and you had smoothies for breakfast...cracked me up!!

    Hope you feel better soon, but I know those crud things take a while to pass.

  6. I hope you and your teeth will feel much better when you wake up, but if not...please, no guilt about not getting stuff done. On a normal day you do more than I do in a week. Or two.

  7. I am sorry you and yours are feeling poorly. This crud thing sounds awful. I think your body is telling you exactly what it needs to be doing.

  8. P.S. I came across this and thought of you:

    "I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer." Rainer Maria Rilke

  9. I'm so sorry that you're sick and hope you feel better soon.

  10. I've never heard of this "cruddy" thing but it sounds, well, pretty cruddy really.
    Hoping you and Mr Moon
    are very soon,
    crudless. x

  11. I think you need at least another day on the couch to get rid of the Crud. A day of watching old movies is my prescription. Black and White are my first choice, but anything heartfelt would be what the doctor ordered.

    Feel Better Fast! You and Mr Moon, too. x0 N2

  12. I hope you feel better soon, we just had 'something' and finally got over it, no fun.


  13. Sending sympathy and get well soon vibes.

  14. ellen- Luckily for the universe which I am the center of (haha!) I feel much better today.

    Jeannie- It's going around. The world.

    Syd- The weird thing about this illness is that hunger is not affected. Forget soup. I want to eat hamburgers. Which I never eat anyway.

    gradydoctor- My teeth do not hurt today. I love that you love reality TV.

    liv- This is one weird illness. Jessie and Vergil are still not well at all.

    lulumarie- That is not true. You paint your entire house every two weeks. I know you do.

    Anonymous Jo- That is a great quote and I have had similar thoughts before.
    Thank-you for thinking of me and sending it on.

    Elizabeth- I do!

    bugerlugs- Stay crudless. That's my advice.

    N2- I have plans to resume my TV watching here soon. I am looking forward to it.

    Deirdre- Sometimes I think we pass these viruses on via the web. I know that's not possible. But.

    messymimi- Thank-you, honey.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
