A Sick Day

more like a sick weekend!

I cannot lie and say that I look forward to every other weekend with J. 
Yes, every other.
That's because every other weekend, we have no kid {his son comes over on the other weekends} and he is not on call with work.
For those who do not know what that means... on call = constant phone calls at all hours of day and night {he gets little sleep}... and that equates to no movie dates, or very interrupted dinners and time together.

Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful for those days and those phone calls too.
It is our bread and butter, I know.
But as a wife -- and a fairly newlywed at that! -- I really relish in the time that we get to have together.

This past weekend was one I was looking forward to as well. 
One of the last weekends left in the summer, I thought J and I could gallivant through Orange County or Los Angeles,
catch a movie,
go to the beach,
or find a restaurant or two that we haven't tried yet {my favorite of the list}.

We have also been pretty big on working out lately.
J reinstated our gym memberships and even got me sessions with a personal trainer.
We have been good about going everyday, drinking protein shakes, and taking our supplements.

And then Saturday morning hit me like a brick. 
I woke up with a gnarrrrly sore throat and sneezing like it was going out of style.
My nose was dripping like crazy,
my head felt like it was locked in a vice,
and I was weak as it gets.
Compounded with the ridiculous heat and surprising humidity, we decided to stay home for the day.

Of course, being one who doesn't do well with sitting still, I was able to finagle a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond and to Michael's for some reorganizing supplies and crafts.

After returning from our errands, I was so exhausted that I could barely get up.

Even worse, I woke up on Sunday and was so congested that I stayed awake for an hour and a half, went to sleep for another 2 1/2 hours {and sweated my fever out}, went to dinner at 6pm, and was in bed and asleep by 7:30pm... all the way to 7:15 am on Monday morning.

Went to work and was sent home because I still sounded awful.

So here I am, home alone and sick in bed
on a sunny Monday morning...
unfolded blankets all over the living room...

cleaning items left all over the house...

the kitchen left with items all over the counter...

crafts left half done...

and bed left in disarray...

Who helps mommies and wives when they are sick?!??!
