It always happens this way...

It figures. Yesterday I was at the doctor's office with nothing more than the common cold. Not twelve hours later my sinuses started to ache. Um, sorry, but couldn't you guys get your act together in time for the doctor to help?!?

(that was me talking to my sinuses. another clear sign that I'm losing it.)

Apparently my cousin really needs my help. Her newborn kept waking up every hour last night, and today her four-year-old is bouncing around needing to go to soccer, playgroup, whatever else it is that four-year-olds do all day. I'd love to go and help out, actually. I really get off on stepping in and helping like that... but there's the matter of this pesky cold, which I definitely don't need to bring into their home. Sucks, because I'd hate to be sleep deprived and have to deal with the four-year-old, but hey. My turn will come. And I'll help her next time.

Today I plan to stay in bed and drink Gatorade. Gross, but not as gross as water. And around noon I'll get my ass out of bed and drive out to meet potential bathroom contractor #54, so that we can move into a functional house this summer. I really hope he pans out... I'm running out of contacts.

Maybe I should shower. Or eat breakfast (not hungry). Or do anything but be stuck to my computer.

Oh, what the hell. I'm off to read all of your blogs...

I'm new here, from Aurelia. First, congratulations on your pregnancy. Stay in bed today - summer colds can be so bad. And also, your cousin's days will only get more difficult if you spread that cold.

I just read that you guys are going to Vegas! That was one of my favorite vacations. Even if you don't gamble once, just seeing all the beautiful casinos and eating all that wonderful food are worth it!

Mmmm...maybe you need something other than the frozen peach bellini. A cold medicine cocktail. Hope it clears up soon.

Sorry you're not feeling well. Get better soon!

You don't like water? Really?

I drink enough water a day to almost drown myself.

Hope you are feeling better.

Reality ~ I can't stand water when I'm sick. When I'm healthy I can chug it all day and love it.

How'd the contractor go? Tell me something went right today, pleeease?

Sending you get well wishes that get to work quickly. Nothing worse than a summer cold/sinus illness.

Gil said...

Get better soon hon. And even though you might not be hungry, try to have at least something little. Take care of yourself hon. Ooh, lemme know how the bathroom contractor works out; we've remodeled much of our house ourselves and reno stuff is SO up my alley!

yes, decemberbaby, NO 10 dpo headache?! now it could be thanks to the PIO but i think my increased hope coincided with no headaches at all at 10, 11 or 12 dpo (even with the wierd weather stuff)....

sorry you are down with a yucky cold and sinus issues...blech....think of how awesome vegas will be where it's warm and dry!!!! i can recommend an AMAXING mexican place in the old part of vegas (freemont st? area)

peace
