That night...The kids went to Grandma's house (my in laws)...My husband and I got a date night. They are SO rare! We saw Silver Linings Playbook which is by far the BEST movie I have seen in forever. Then we went to Qdoba for dinner at 10:00pm. It was great to just spend some time with my hubby and know that the kids were having fun!
What I haven't told you is that when I woke up my throat felt off. My voice was raspy...my glands were swollen and sore...and I had gunkies. By the time I got home from the movie...I was miserable, cold, achy...had the chills...I took two Tylenol, crawled under my heated blanket and went to bed...
Saturday - Woke up at 8:30 am...knowing that the local Take Care Clinic opened at 9 AM. Got dressed which sucked. All the hair on my skin was SUPER sensitive and everything hurt. Anyways, I drove myself there early so that I could hopefully be the first one in line...I was...
The Nurse Practitioner checked me out and determined that I have strep...STREP! I don't have time for strep. Now I have to keep a look out to see if L gets it. I know DJ won't he has been on antibiotics for two days and still have eight more to go. I go home after filling my script and crawl back into bed. Where I remained for five hours ( Thank you Grandma for keeping the babies until D got home from golfing!).
I felt (and I kids you not) like I would have had to get a little better in order to die!
I love my hubby...He took great care of me until my fever broke at 10 PM. Even after that he made sure that I was comfy and took my meds.
I was quite irritated by being ill...I had so many things that I had wanted to get done this weekend that just wasn't gunna happen...
Sunday - I woke up feeling AWESOME...well less like I had been by a bus. I am no longer contagious!
We headed out to my dad's house where my daughter L was spending the night. We also had the master plan of selling girl scout cookies around his neighborhood (What supposed to happen on Saturday...) I felt great...which was good because my darling daughter drug me up and down every driveway of almost half the houses around my dad.
The planned work...L's goal was to sell 100 boxes of cookies. That got her two patches and a
After we finally let Grandpa's house we went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. That store has EVERYTHING!
I went with a particular mission in place...I wanted to buy little spoons and little forks. I have been using my sons baby spoons and I have to admit that it has helped slow the speed at which I consume my food. I decided that I like the idea of having little forks and using the crappy plastic ones with rounded points doesn't appeal to me. So I bought these...
The fork and spoon on the outside are our normal sized utensils. In the middle, are my new fork and and spoon!
As I get myself ready for bed I think back over my weekend and I have to admit that I am so glad that if I was going to get sick that I got sick over the weekend. Over a time when I had help from my hubby and my dad to take care of the kids. That is one thing that is so hard about being sick when you have young children. It doesn't matter how you are feeling they need your time...Anyways, I am ready to end today and attack the upcoming week. Bring on the first day of school ( for me) and a Daisy meeting!
