If you read my posts last week, you may have gotten the impression that I was, well, really upset. Work has pissed me off and mainly because I’m not used to having anyone breathe down my neck. In the past 12 years, everyone let me alone, let me do my work. I realize things change but I really don’t do well with change so… yeah.
Anyway, WEEKEND! Since I was stressed, my husband read that and planned ahead: he took us out for beer and pizza. The kids were being little pains in the ass, sadly, but by the time I was home and on beer #2, I was feeling fine. Saturday, we had 8:30 and 10:30 games, which is the worst schedule because we spend all damn morning at the park. But then we had Sonny’s and I was back home, relaxing. My body has been trying to get sick for days now and I was feeling it then too. Luckily, I felt motivated enough to sweep and wash bathroom floors, then do a load of bathroom rugs too. We got some other stuff done, along with making dinner and all that. I had some yummy sushi from Fresh Market so I cannot complain one bit.
Woke Sunday and definitely still felt like I was getting sick but I ran 5.5. miles and finally, a good one! The last few weekend longs have been torturous, but this one was just fine. I got home and helped Elliot mow the backyard and during my shower, I was feeling so good, so motivated. Then I sat down in my chair. And as I sat watching a replay of the Metallica livestream from the night before, I started to feel BAD. Like, dizzy and weak and just awful. I’d had a Gatorade and banana when I got back but was still suffering. Managed to pull myself together and get to the store, and I bought myself a nice big Publix sub and then I at least felt sated, but I was definitely tired and weak. So I pretty much didn’t do much of anything else besides laundry and watch football. Luckily, I was feeling a lot better by dinner time and we had steak and potatoes.
Today, I feel alright, though my throat is still bothering me. I keep hoping I either get it bad enough to call out or beat it and can move on. Though no one knows how this storm will affect us so this entire week is up in the air!
There’s some prime clapping in this one!
