I have just suffered through one of the worst colds I have had in years. I felt like crap for days and days and days. I had a sore throat, a runny nose, the worst throbbing heachache, and the leakiest eyes EVER. My whole body hurt, and I was overwhelming tired during the majority of the day. This resulted in lots of "resting" on the couch, while my children tortured me. I wish I could have convinced Porgie and Izzy of how horrible I felt, because they had no sympathy for me. It was a rough couple of days. The good news is that I feel slightly better today.
I was a complete slacker this week. John had to do the laundry. I canceled EVERY SINGLE outing we had planned. I avoided the phone. I didn't clean the living room or play room. I am usually the type of person who will trudge forward, regardless of how shitty I feel. But this time, I took some much needed time off from my regular duties. It also helped that we had another HUGE snow storm (we got 14.9 inches on Wednesday night). It was the perfect excuse to stay at home in my jammies.
This weekend we have a birthday party to attend, I am buying a bread machine from a lady on Craig's list (get ready for lots of bread related blogging!), and I am going to clean my nasty house. And we now return to our regularly scheduled programs.
