Sooooo, last night I finally succumbed to whatever viral plague the children had last week and all I can say is that I should have been a kinder, more loving parent. lol.
Seriously, I have a sinus headache that is somewhat blinding. I'd compare it to a migraine, but I'm not incapacitated...just really pained by it. And my neck hurts. You know those sinus-y areas below your ears, where all the doctors feel to see if your throat really hurts? Those hurt...like I pulled some neck muscles hurt. That being said, my throat doesn't hurt, though it's itchy scratchy. But it's the chest constrictions...feels like someone is sitting on your chest and then when you cough, it's like someone is ripping off some hot wax strip thing. Yegads!
And, of course, I can only take Tylenol (I sure miss my ibuprofen) and sudafed, and I think I can take Robitussin. Around 3 am this morning, I was creeping through the house trying to find a cough drop. Very sad and pathetic. I finally found one in Jason's drawer (I think I was led by Divine Inspiration), and would have woken him up to kiss him if I wasn't so exhausted by that time.
Anyway, the moral of this story is that I can take almost nothing of help. So, I'm just drinking lots of fluids and not worrying about doing anything around the house. The television, again, is babysitting the children. ugh. Thank goodness for Hi-5 and Yo Gabba Gabba! And a little Super Why. lol.
And nap time. I have 10 minutes to go before I, too, get a nap. Hallelujah. :)
