a knife in my throat. Or at least that's what it feels like.....something really sharp, slowly twisting .
Of all the symptoms that come with a cold, the sore throat for me is the one that I really can't handle.....maybe because it affects my eating, and you all know how much I love food LOL
We did manage to get some sleep last night, but when hubby works night shifts, Nic wants to sleep with me, and I don't mind, I actually welcome the company.
BUT....are you ready??? BUT, what I DON'T like is that when he is sick he tends to have some bed wetting issues.
So I'm all snuggly and sleepy and I turn over and feel something wet on my leg. I'm still pretty much asleep but this light goes off "UH OH!!", I quickly grab his leg and feel that he is wet, move my hand to his underwear and it's soaking. Dagnabit, it's 3am!!!
I had to drag myself around, in the dark, trying to be as quiet as a mouse so as not to wake Jasmine sleeping in her room.....wash him up, redress him with clean clothes, and then hunt down some new bed linens. All this at that horrible hour of the morning!!!
Oh the things moms have to do!!!
One thing I've noticed with myself, is that, when I'm sick I tend to go into overdrive, it's like when you're exhausted and can't keep your eyes open and then suddenly at 10pm you get that second wind, and you're ready to go another 12 hours. That's what I feel like....I feel miserable and mopy and then suddenly BAM!!! I'm up cleaning and reorganizing, yes I reorganize when I'm sick.
By the time hubby got up in the afternoon, he noticed the change LOL He just laughs and shakes his head, he always tells me "You nesting again?"....as if!!!
But I worked on the kitchen, trying to get some more fall decorations going etc, and then I realized I was out of bread. Now what does a woman do when that happens??? Go buy some bread you say??? Nah, I just bake my own...see how I get when I'm sick??? I'm in the kitchen at 1pm baking two loaves of bread. I got the recipe from Kelli over at "There's no place like home" and Oh BOY, did that bread turn out good.
Freshly baked and hot out of the oven, slathered with butter......is there anything better than that???
So if you want to try some, just go look here for the recipe, and while you're there, check out what Kelli is planning to do soon, it's going to be so much fun for them and I can't wait to see the pictures :)
I had a couple of errands to run this morning, so I decided to stop at the thrift store. I found some fall decorations and also a really cute bed set for Jasmine. It's all girly, pink and flowers and all that cute stuff, it had the comforter and sheets, dust ruffle, panels and valances, and all for just $10. How cool is that??? I've just got done washing them all again, and now I'm going to go fix her room, she's going to be thrilled :)
Unfortunately leaving the house only made me worse. I just can't win can I??? I feel awful right now, running a bit of a temperature, hopefully by dinner time I'll be a little better so I can fix dinner, if not, guess it's take out. You have no idea how I hate doing that, I feel horrible when I have to do that.
Thank you all for the well wishes, seems there's a lot of colds going around, almost everyone I talk to has their family sick with the flu. It's that whole change of season, and here especially we've had 30 degree mornings, and then 70 to 80 degrees afternoons, it's just crazy.
Well I better get going. Gotta see if hubby can pick Jasmine up, if not, guess I'll be heading out shortly. You ladies have a wonderful afternoon,
The plans for dinner were Meatballs and Spaghetti, some homemade garlic bread and a nice salad. The way I'm feeling right now, we might end up having Burger King....Arrrrgghhh!!!
