Good Morning everyone.....
Well come on in I have some hot coffee and some Crepes with Cream Cheese and Strawberries. I can't really taste them at all, but I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy them :)
I'm still sick, of course, I'm now at the Can't Smell-Can't Taste phase, the most frustrating for me, I might as well be eating cardboard for all the taste I'm getting out of food.
I did go to the doctor and it seems it's just a really bad cold with a bit of a sinus infection going on. The sinus has always been my problem, and when I get sick you couldn't fit a needle through my nose....at least that's what it feels like to me. Is there anything worse than not being able to breathe??? I didn't think so!!!
I told you yesterday that I picked up that comforter set and curtains for Jasmine's room. I got most of it up already and she loves it. I think her room looks so girly....the next step is getting rid of the bunk bed and buying two small beds. I had to wait for her to agree, but I think she's finally ready to get rid of the bunk beds.
Excuse Nicholas in the picture, any chance he gets to go in big sister's room, he does. He is constantly amazed at her toys and her girly stuff. He has a special affinity for Barbies, which started worrying my hubby until he found that Nicholas kept stashing them in his room, but all their clothes were gone....they were completely naked. LOL
So last night I decided to go ahead and make the meatballs that I had planned. I go and open the ground beef package and yet AGAIN, this horrible stench. What is going on???
Guess I'm making a nice call to the Base Commissary today, this is the third package of ground beef that this has happened to.
But, I made a quick Spaghetti Sauce using leftover chourico and some bacon. It was REALLY good.
By the time I had my bath and got into bed, I was pooped. Seriously, this thing of playing house and being an adult is really hard at times. I love being a mom and wife and taking care of the house, don't get me wrong, BUT when I'm sick I want MY mommy. I want to be tucked into bed and brought soup and tea, I want to lay there and not be bugged, not hear kids screaming at each other, not worry about whether I got that last load of laundry in the dryer, not worry about what my family is going to eat for dinner if I don't fix it.
It's the one thing about being military, that really upsets me. You don't have family nearby, I truly envy my brothers living close to home, when they need something there's always someone there to help, to watch their kids for them, or help them through a hard time. I don't have that, I've learnt to be independent and to take care of myself. I've gone through things that no one should have to go through, and I did it alone, no one there with a shoulder to cry on or to take over. You know I could be bitter, but I'm not, it's made me who I am today......BUT, I do sometimes wish I could just go lay down and not worry about anything!!!! *Sigh* I can dream can't I???
So anyway, this morning I wake up, my nose is all red from blowing it and I see THIS. WHAT THE HECK?!?!?!
Oh come ON, you have got to be kidding me. It's a huge cold sore, just in time for the family pictures on Saturday. I have to admit that God has a sense of humor, nothing like this to make me freak out. I started thinking of how I can cover it up, what I can use to make it just go away.
Then I realize that for some reason, when I have some important picture coming up, I get these. Two days before my wedding day, I got a cold sore, but this time it went from the corner of my mouth, and halfway up my face.
Yeah nothing like THAT to make me a beautiful bride LOL
I'm just handing this one over to God, and whatever happens happens.
I decided to take it easy today, these past few days have been tough for me, I'm moving at snails pace and still trying to do everyting. I hate asking for help, but I'm sorry, I think it's time I ask hubby and the kids to pitch in for today. I'm going to take some medicine and curl up on the couch with a book, maybe watch some tv. I'm leaving dinner up to them too, and since they've been talking about Burger King's Angus Mushroom Burgers (now I'm craving one), I guess that's what we're having :)
Thank you all for the well wishes, it means a lot to me. :)
Who knows...only time will tell :) Hubby and kids are in charge so it could be Burger King, Taco Bell, Popeye's Chicken, Pizza or a sandwich, maybe soup...I don't know.
