Oh, boy it's Friday.....

It's Friday and that means it's time for Friday Fragments.

I'm linking up with Mrs. 4444 for another glimpse into the week left behind.

The Superhero went back to work yesterday after NINE days of being sick and when I emphasize the number of work days missed it's because he never misses work.  I knew he was near death and was trying hard to take care of him when he gifted me with his illness.  He's just nice like that.

After a joint appointment with the doctor, his second visit, my first, we both came home with two antibiotics each and the good kind of cough medicine.  I can't remember either of us ever being quite so sick.  I wouldn't say we're fully back but we're getting there.


We were issued new credit cards in the mail and when I looked at them closely, the numbers were different from our old ones.  So, of course, I called and was informed that our cards were among several BILLION cards compromised by one of the following:
a store
an online shopping experience
a restaurant
well, you get the picture!

I said to the lovely lady on the phone......but, I have my number memorized!  She had probably been talking to people about this .....well, maybe a billion times? she said calmly.....I guess you'll have to start over.  My sweet Superhero suggested I not memorize it and maybe I wouldn't use it so much!  As if!


We got good news this week!  Our newest grandchild due the end of November is a BOY!!  Charley will be so happy to have a brother and I'm sure they will be best friends always!  We are very excited and can't wait to meet our grandson in a few months!


Although I know this has been fascinating, remember I've been in all week!  And so once again,
I'm all fragged out!

Donna said...

Glad y'all are Better!!!

I do love your frags. Your sense of humor shines through even when you're sick as a mangy old dog.

Mimi said...

So sorry you have been sick as well as hubby....we were both REAL sick in January...even after all my antibiotics and a week in the hospital,I still got sick...took me a month to get rid of my cough.....
I have to ask...what is flagged????or that word you use in your blog post?????
MY GAP card was stolen some how.....someone took it upon themselves to order stuff with MY CARD and had it delivered to some other address.....HOPE and PRAY they catch them and know what I hope happens....

9 days? Wow, you guys had it "good", didn't you? Glad you're on your way to recovery.

You memorized your credit card number? Wow!

Congrats! Another grandson ... how wonderful!

Sorry you caught was your hubby had. No fun. I hope by now you're much much better. I've suffered with a headache all day yesterday and today. Grrrr.


Dee said...

Dear Nancy, It's Monday now. I hope that the antibiotics worked for both you and your husband and that you are both feeling better. Peace.

Teresa Coltrin@Journaling Woman said...

Me too, on hoping you're better now. And what's with not giving the good kind of cough medicine unless we beg for it?

Sure my mom gave it to me when I was a child (the REALLY good kind), but let me tell you it killed my cough. Sure I slept a week after that, but my cough was gone. :)


Auntie Bliss said...

Oooo sorry :/
I had a two day head cold so I have a little window in to what you dealt with. Glad it is history!
babies are the best!

A boy! Oh, congratulations! I'm glad you're feeling better! But ugh, sorry to hear about the card.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I'm only a week late! So glad he is back at work. Whatever it was really knocked him out. Hope your feeling better too. Memorized....really!!! I don't even know my drivers license #.
Boy oh boy, another boy!!!!
