I know, it’s been quite a long time since I posted. Things got pretty busy around here and I was trying to keep it all going….smoothly. That was short lived when I got sick.
I’d been fighting a cold for awhile. It was there, but hadn’t really effected me. Hubby had it for over 2 weeks and I was doing just fine. Saturday, we had to go get our flu shots because it was going to be our last opportunity. We could do it this coming weekend, but we won’t be available, so had to do it while we could. I felt fine after and on Sunday. Then on Monday, I realized I wasn’t doing so well and laid around a lot. Tuesday, I literally spend about 20 hours in bed and most of it, I was sleeping.
I woke up Wednesday morning sweating from head to toe. I was exhausted, but knew that I was going to have to teach class that night. Miss K made sure to take care of me as only she can. Actually, she slept most of the day on Tuesday too. I think it was enough to get her past it. Even now, I don’t feel “sick”, I’m just so tired. Plus, a cough has started.
With the rest of the week we have ahead, I can’t let it get me down and I have to start moving. Friday, I have to take Lean Green to the VA to have his eye exam. They should be dilating them, so he can’t drive at all. Then on Saturday, we get my parents dog. We’ll be dogsitting for them. Yes, 3 dogs running around the house and all of them in charge!! HAHA
Anyway, that’s where I’ve been. I hope to get the blog caught up soon. I want to share our craft from last night’s religion class. It was super simple and they had fun!! I also have some photos that I hope to share. Stay tuned and don’t mind the germs!!
I had every intention of post a new “In the Kitchen” tonight. We made the most amazing dinner and I wanted to share it. However, at the end of the cooking, I started to feel very sick. My stomach was turning and I was weak and hot. I sat sprawled out on the couch until I had to check on certain parts of the meal. After we ate, I was better, but I was just totally zapped. Miss K was next to feel that way and then hubby. I don’t know what hit us, but it hits hard and fast. Stomach cramps like I can’t describe!! There’s nobody to blame but my parents. They sent it to us through the phone. They didn’t go out for their anniversary because mom was feeling this way and the next day when they were going to try to go again, dad was under the weather. It PASSES quick, but you’re pretty tired afterward. BLAH I’ll share my “In the Kitchen” tomorrow. Trust me when I say, it’s well worth the wait!!
Yes, the above picture resembles me today. I’ve been zapped. As soon as I got my flu shot, I didn’t feel good, but after a good night’s sleep, I awoke feeling fine. Then last night, I had such a sore throat that I could barely talk and it was all swollen. I decided not to let K sleep with me just in case I was getting sick last night. The Man had duty and wouldn’t be home until this morning. I slept alright, but woke up with a runny nose and the throat was worse!! I had to drive on because I had class this morning. I made it through class, but I came home and crawled in bed. I’ve fallen asleep a couple times. I can’t seen to catch my nose….it really took off running. As night has come on, I’ve gotten a fever to go along with it all.
I’m just so annoyed that I’m sick right now. There’s so much work to do around the house and shopping to do. There’s only 6 days until the Retirement Ceremony and all the family will be here the day prior. What a time for me to be down and out!! UGH I can’t stand not feeling good, much less having so much to do. Ah, why me and why now!?!? SHEESH
I know the shot isn’t what made me sick. My resistance must have already been down. Then I got the shot and my body doing what it’s supposed to, tried to attack it and this nasty cold took over. One way or the other, I’ll trudge through. We have to go to church tomorrow because K has Altar Server duty. I don’t plan on being out any longer than necessary. At some point, I’ll get all my work done. I just want my bed right now!!
Ya’ll stay well!!
