I got sick.
It’s not fun.
In fact, I am pretty sure I would rather stab my big toe with a pitchfork a few times than be this sick. But you wanna know what is making my life more bearable at the moment? The love of my wonderful husband. You know you’ve married the right person when you get sick and your spouse comes home from the store with your favorite chocolate ice cream, cold meds, orange juice, Kleenex, chicken noodle soup, and comfort food… gets up with the kid in the morning, makes you breakfast in bed, vacuums, straightens up the house, and changes Nathan’s dirty diapers, even the poopy ones!
I am feeling better today than I was on Friday. Shortly after I posted that I was starting to feel ill, it escalated into a a sore throat with lots of sneezing, a leaky nose, congestion, cough, and sinus pressure complete with itchy and stopped-up ears. Nathan, though, is still not feeling well at all. This is definitely a full-blown cold, and the lil guy is quite miserable. And I must say, I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND why he whined so much last week because let me tell ya, this cold is just awful.
Then again, it’s been so long since the last time I’ve had a cold like this (years!) that I have forgotten how miserable it feels to be so sick. This cold is kicking our butts. The little guy is a trooper, though, because I know he’s feeling worse than I am. My immune system is amazing, plus it has nearly 30 years of experience. Nathan’s immune system, however, is only 21 months old.
Hopefully we will both be feeling better in the next couple of days.
And a HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all you out there!! Hope you all have a safe and wonderful evening and for any of you who are going trick-or-treating, I will be living vicariously through you. We decided not to do it this year because Nathan is at the stage where costumes and scary faces frighten him. (Plus, we wouldn’t have been able to take him anyway considering how sick we both are.) Next year though, hopefully!!
