...and wishing I was dead.

Grumpybutt woke me up at 4 am (I believe I've mentioned how much I HATE switching the clocks) yesterday morning and by mid morning/early afternoon I had a sore throat and a runny nose. I was going to workout after I got the kids to bed -- actually go to the gym. That was the plan anyway but by 7:30 last night I felt even worse, if that's possible, and was asleep by 8.

Today was better because at least the kids slept til 6:30, which is normal for them.

However, we were crazy busy and I've practically lost my voice.

I had to get over to Costco for bananas and formula (I know, what a combination, right?). 3ft had his very first parent/teacher conference ever. The biggest problem he has is too much talking and my husband was really very quick to point out that 3ft came by it naturally while pointing at me! As if. (It's true.) Then right after, 3ft had an optometrist appointment because during school eye screening they thought he might have astigmatism. Which he does. He's very excited to be getting glasses (weird kid).

We had Carl's Jr. for lunch today and I'm proud to say that even though I really wanted to try their new Philly Burger I saw they had a Hawaiian Chicken Salad that looked pretty good and opted for that instead. We pretty much avoid fast food except for Mc Donald's once a week for 3ft where I get a chicken sandwich or a salad or something. So I was super proud that I stuck to salad even though there were a ton of greasy burgers I wanted instead. I was hoping the salad would be kind of like the drowned Asian salad I got from Applebees (minus the drowned part of course) but it wasn't. Still pretty good but I don't know if it was worth the nearly 6 bucks for it.

So, I'm still sick. Have a wicked cough and no voice -- which my kids and husband love of course. Not the cough but the no voice part. I'm giving my body a break to recoup -- so other than the running around I did trying to get everywhere I needed to be when I needed to be there I didn't do any exercise. I'm hoping to feel better tomorrow.

On a side note. I'm changing up how the blog works again. The Grumpybutt has all but given up his morning naps (sad face) and it's hard to get on the computer when he's rolling around the house getting into things. So instead of blogging for the previous day the next morning. I'm just going to blog after bedtime for the actual day of. I don't do anything interesting after then anyway. So I played catch up today and did Monday (uneventful cuz I was sick) and Tuesday (pretty much the same) so tomorrow night will be for Wednesday.

We'll see how that goes.

Thanks Ladies!!!

The worst part is that I've lost my voice. How can I properly yell at my boys if I have no "oomph" behind it? Instead of being afraid they just snicker at me. LOL

WOW! You did awesome yesterday!! When I have a cold, I eat everything in sight because it helps my sore throat feel better.

Hope you feel better soon!!
