I’m a real wild and crazy gal these days. It’s currently quarter to four in the afternoon and I just got out of bed. Wow! Aren’t you jealous of all this excitment I’m having on my vacation. And all of this quality time I’m spending with the kids?
Well last night I was up ALL NIGHT LONG coughing. I tried a cough drop, throat spray, ice cubes, massaging my throat, and finally hot cider…very hot cider. My taste buds are still swollen. But that finally worked. At 5am I finally drifted off to sleep.
And then my alarm went off at 7:22 am.
I had a doctor’s appointment with my ENT. I don’t normally schedule ridiculously early doctor appointments. Especially when I’m on vacation. I am so not a morning person. I had originally scheduled this appointment for 10:30am, but they double booked me and asked me to reschedule for 8:30. Obviously they don’t know me very well.
So I dragged my extrememly tired butt to his office and pretended to be cheerful, even with my kick-me-in-the-ass cold and lack of sleep. He told me I have acute something that starts with an “F” sinusitis [but not the "F" word you may be thinking...although I have called this the "F" word cold when I describe it]. I told Lee, “at least I have a cute sinusitis instead of an ugly one.” Apparantly my humor while sick and tired is not quite as humorous to other perfectly sane people because he looked at me like I was some sort of drugged up weirdo.
I sent Lee to the store to get my antibiotic, prednisone and cough syrup [with codiene...gotta love that codiene] and I made Eggnog Pancakes for breakfast for the kids. They turned out really yummy. I was really quite impressed with my cooking abilities.
And that was the end of my time with the kids. After that I went to bed. I just now got up. So I’ve got some making up to do. I promise I am going to post about Christmas. And add some pictures. But that will have to wait until after some quality time with this kids.
