I’m suddenly coming down sick.

I don’t want to get out of bed, do my crunches, shower, & spend the next 12 hours on the road & at the tattoo shop.

But I’ll take some Dayquil & vitamin C and do just those things, because I have to. I need this career training for the future good of myself & my kids.

But I still feel like crap.

I feel worse tonight, every minute that I’m alive. Bleh.

Note to self:

Do NOT come down with a headcold the very same evening that you traumatize a nose piercing, thereyby injecting the newly-raw wound with all manner of headcold germs.

It may take a week to recover.

My nose is SO sore.

When one is fighting getting sick for a week now

AND one has respiratory allergies, one should not just blithely take an antihistamine (like it’s really going to help) and go clean a kid’s bedroom.

Not only did I wear out every last bit of energy I had, now I can barely breathe.

I have 3 more loads of laundry to fold and wanted to clean off my dresser.

But I feel like lying on my bed like a slug.

Saturday Six

  1. I woke up feeling lousy, and haven’t gotten any better.  Thank God for mega doses of vitamins, antihistamines, cough meds, and aspirin.
  2. I’ve done 2 loads of laundry so far, dyed a skein of sock-weight superwash Merino wool, and packaged up four skeins of yarn to send to a needy knitter friend (can’t have that happening, no way)
  3. As a birthday gift to me, Wolf was going to pay for Des and I to go see Les Miserables. But the showtimes are at 4:35 and 8:20.  Apparently that movie is even more interminable than Twilight.  We might be boned.  Not sure I can make it this weekend, and next weekend I’ll be at a friend’s wedding.
  4. Veronica wants to go to a youth group function at our church from 6 to 11:30 PM.  It’s $10 and two round-trips to the church, almost 20 miles away, not to mention one of those trips happening late at night when I’m not feeling well at all.  Might have to pull the Bad Mom card on this one and nix it.
  5. This is also the only weekend I can finish this quilt I’ve been working on, which I am NOT getting to work on today because of Number 6.
  6. One of the cats (don’t know which one, or both, but if I find out, they’re Cat Chow Mein) has decided to use a Mystery Location of my living room as a littler box.  I can smell it but can’t find it.  So today I’m having to move furniture and clean and scrub all the nooks and crannies (SERIOUSLY WHERE DID THE 6 MILLION CORDS COME FROM BEHIND THE TV, AND DO WE REALLY NEED ALL THESE TO SURVIVE AND BE ENTERTAINED IN MODERN SOCIETY!?!)).  This is NOT FUN, PEOPLE.  I’m getting sicker by the minute, doing it.  And EVERYTHING is getting thrown away.  I don’t care if it is the most infinitesimal and irreplaceable part to the Lego Death Star that just accidentally fell in the crack of the sofa, it is OUT OF HERE

Where’s the Tylenol.

Sunday sevenish

I woke up feeling like my head was stuffed with cotton, yucky sinuses, and swollen throat.

Loaded up on cold meds to make me feel like a human and went to church, helped watch the crawler nursery.  Cute babies.  

I’m done having babies.  I love them, but enough is enough.

Came home, made lunch (I just had oatmeal and toast),crawled under the lovely soft down-alternative comforter I got Wolf for Christmas, and temporarily died.  For like 3 hours.

I’ve made dinner and supervised the kids folding laundry.  Rehung the living room drape.  Boiled eggs to use for breakfast this week.  The family is watching A Knight’s Tale.  I love everything about that movie!

I haven’t had enough to eat today.  I also haven’t worked on that quilt I need to finish.  

I think knitting is all I can manage this evening, and even that seems like a lot of effort.  I feel terrible, still.  Can’t call in to work tomorrow because I so direly need the potential of making some money.

Runny nose, sneezing, coughing, body aches edition

Guys, eat your hearts out, I’m taken

Five

1. Nutella is meh. I can eat it but I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

2. I ordered a new poster for my tattoo room.

3. Also some Suxtabee Fat tea.

4. I’m eating cold medicine like there’s salvation in doing so.

5. But I made it to work. What more do you want?

Sunday sevenish

1. The time change kicked my butt this morning. I fell back to sleep and barely got us out of the house in time for church.

2. We (finally) returned the load of sheets and towels to the guy I bought the non-working dryer from.

3. My dryer still isn’t working. We took clothes to the coin laundry to dry this afternoon. Their dryers SUCK.

4. It was a gorgeous day. I lay down for about an hour and a half. I didn’t nap but the rest felt good. I’m still very congested and kind of tired from the cold I had this past week. My left kidney has hurt me all day too.

5. Di and I went walking on the greenway. Too short of breath and suddenly out of shape to do the 2.5-mile power walk. I did 1.8 miles. I’ll pick up a 10th or two per day til I’m back up to speed.

6. My x texted me at 7 minutes til 10 tonight, saying he’s off tomorrow so he wants to take the kids for the day, and did they maybe want to come over tonight & spend the night? What? No! It’s their bedtime! Nuts to that. Get them in the morning.

7. Inexplicably I’ve had a very sad day today, maybe because of the pain, but the day is nearly over. Perhaps tomorrow will be better!
