So I managed to get sick this weekend. You would think that being around all that throw up from my little Kaylee girl earlier in the week would have given me her stomach bug, but NO, I was lucky enough to avoid that! (Thank you Jesus!) but instead I got…a COLD! No big deal right? Put on my big girl pants, grab some Kleenex and Sudafed and get on with the day right?! SO WRONG!
This is the WORST cold!! And I feel like such a WHINER for complaining about a cold. But here I am! Whining about it…a COLD!! SO LAME! I have been lying on our couch for almost 3 days with this stupid cold. My husband finally looked at me yesterday and said, “Man, when you get a cold, you REALLY get a cold.”
It started out with me thinking that I did have the flu Saturday morning- cold sweats, dizzy, racing pulse, nausea and just feeling “off”. So I stayed home on the couch for the day. I never did throw up (even though I really wanted to in hopes that the other stuff would go away). Then about mid day that stuff subsided and I started feeling the dreaded cold symptoms. And that night, only 3 hours of sleep, I was so stuffy, so drippy, and so TIRED. And then yesterday was just a day full of sneezing and my eyes watering and then NOT being able to sneeze no matter how badly I wanted to. And I just feel exhausted! And now I feel it in my chest. STUPID COLD!
So I obviously have NOTHING crafty to share with you today (since my bum was firmly planted on the couch for the past 48ish hours), instead I thought I would give you a thrilling look into my glamourous life these past couple days in dealing with this LOVELY cold! (This is what blogging is all about folks- me being real- sharing my ideas, my life and my COLD- only not REALLY sharing my cold!)
So since I have had this lovely cold, this is what I have been up to!
In the past 3 days, I have-
Become VERY familiar with my couch and found my favorite lounging position
Read 3 books (And I was SO MAD at the end of one, I read 4 HUGE books in this series to get to the end and find out that they DO NOT INDEED END UP TOGETHER! WHAT!?!)
Watched a full season of DC Cupcakes on Netflix
Watched a cheesy 90’s Teen flick on late night Canadian TV (Don’t even know the name of it!)
Slept about 4 hours TOTAL each night
Gone through a roll and a half of toilet paper and a box of Kleenex (just make the dripping stop!)
Put a TON of books on hold at the library
Read a TON of Facebook Status Updates and comments
Texted my lovely younger sister (who works as an ER Nurse) for info on which meds I can take while on other meds for headache issues
Googled ALL the new upcoming movie releases (and their trailers) so I know what to look forward to in the coming months- The Hunger Games, The Lucky One, The Avengers, The Amazing Spider Man, Snow White and the Huntsmen, The Hobbit- just to name a few!
In the past 3 days, I have NOT-
Done my hair
Put on ANY makeup
Put on any clothing other than Yoga pants and a sweatshirt (CLASSY!)
Vacuumed (Killing me!)
Cleaned my bathroom or any other part of my house other than trying to clean the downstairs bathroom and feeling like death afterwards.
Left my house
Done any grocery shopping and I am about ready to send my hubby out on an emergency run!
Done anything remotely crafty
Cooked dinner (or breakfast or lunch)
Done anything remotely productive- my poor family!
Luckily, I have a pretty amazing hubby who is taking care of everything while I am down! He is special like that. He even brought me some roses when he ran to Costco yesterday. And right now he is taking the kiddos out to lunch since there is pretty much nothing much left in this house!
Jenny shared this hilarious video with some of us gals a couple months ago and we HAD to laugh because we ALL knew someone who had experienced this when a certain man in their life got a cold, the dreaded MAN COLD!!
It appears folks as though I have the dreaded MAN COLD!!
