Off the air

Due mainly to immense stress from work and lack of sleep from worry about my damn job, I have succumbed to a most nasty case of sinusitis. This always happens, crazy stress, then once it lets up, illness. Ugh! I paid a visit to a “doc in a box” who handed me a script for antibiotics. I’m pretty much down for the count and have been for a couple days.

The good news? Tomorrow I hop a plane for El Paso (ah the pressurized cabin should make my throbbing sinus pressured head feel *so* good!). I get to spend the weekend with my best friend in the tall pines of Ruidoso. We’ve rented a cabin and will commence our annual “Chick’s Trip”. Oh how I miss my Fair New Mexico and can hardly wait to be in her arms again.

Plus my best good friend makes, hands down, the BEST rellenos ever. I think I blogged about them here. She’s promised to whip up a batch. I am already salivating…..

So I’ll be a little quiet for the next few days while I try to regain my sanity, recoup my health, and try to relax.

    Can she ship some rellenos out to D.C.?

    Let me know what you think of the “statue” at the El Paso airport. It is a neat airport.

    Natalie – girl what do you think I did right when I was “feeling that feeling” in my sinuses…..I totally whipped out the Neti Pot. Oh yeah…..sooo good….:)

    Avelino – friend, I wondered what the heck you were gonna do all the way out in DC without green chiles. I mean….it’s rough going. Start working on your network of folks who will send ’em to you!!

    oh and…the rellenos were AMAZING! As were the Navajo Tacos she made (from scratch) the night before. I love my best friend.

    New Mexican – I actually love that statue. It’s a shame about all the controversy. I mean, clearly it’s OƱate, and I get it. But calling it “The Equestrian” doesn’t make it different. It is a beautiful work of art. I find it to be stunning, actually. I blogged about the statue here:
