Sick Day

I'm officially taking today off. Whatever that means.

I had a horrible headache on Saturday and by the end of the day it was a mild migraine. I say mild, because I was still able to function. On Sunday, I still had a headache, both of my ears were hurting and my throat was so sore. I felt bad when I first woke up, but we were taking Cousin Callie to church with us for "Friend Day" so I made myself feel better. It was during church when my throat started hurting and then when we arrived home I realized how bad I really felt. I decided to go to the local urgent care and was diagnosed with a bad sinus infection. The doctor also said that I had so much "stuff" in my head that it had caused a vacuum and was making my ear drums do something funny.

I felt really horrible again this morning, but Big Daddy had an early meeting so I had to take Maggie to school. I took a little extra Ex.cedrin Migraine to give myself a few good hours. I'm really hoping for a nap today.

Even though I have felt really bad all weekend Big Daddy and I did take the girls to get Easter portraits taken. Ellie was NOT happy about it, but we got a few that were decent of her and Maggie together. Ellie wanted to sit on anything that didn't coordinate or hold a giant rubber ducky or a basketball...or her Daddy. This was her favorite chair until she saw a black and white letter block. I HATE this chair. We didn't buy any of this pose, but she was tickled to sit in the chair.

Today, I have decided that I'm doing laundry and taking care of the kids, but not much else. The hardwood floors need some lovin' but I'm not up to it today. I haven't done anything except fold laundry since Friday night. I'm really hoping that I'll feel well enough to get my work done tomorrow. I need to feel better so that I can put the finishing touches on my second little project.

When I had bronchitis a month ago and was blowing my nose non-stop, my ears popped something terrible. They have been stopping up and I knew I had fluid so I had the OB to look on Thursday. I had a lump (enlarged lymph node) in my throat and it was red so she gave me 14 day supply of Azithromycin, Flonase and told me to keep taking Claritin. This pollen is a mess but hopefully the rain is washing most of it away! Hope you feel better and get a nap!
