not myself

By Tara Zandra | September 28, 2010

I woke up like normal today and spent a leisurely couple of hours on the computer before Daisy got up. Tabitha quickly followed and asked for the computer. At this point I stayed on another 20-minutes or so realizing I really didn’t feel like getting up. Eventually I did and while I got the kids breakfast realized the sore throat I had awoke with was now accompanied by a stuffy nose and the beginnings of a headache. Over the next 45-minutes I felt worse and worse and was seriously considering not getting dressed today because the effort of putting on clothes seemed too great. You have to understand that I always get dressed and cannot stand staying in pajamas for any length of time. At 9:30 I told the kids I was going to lay down but did not expect to actually sleep as the house across the street is being re-roofed and there as a teriffic racket. I slept 2 hours. But I woke up wanting to get dressed and feeling mentally like normal. I still took something to shake off the rest of the headache and drank a lovely caffeine-filled Diet Coke, but for the most part, I felt like myself relatively quickly.

I tried to make up for my lack of presence in the morning by barreling through the afternoon but at some point the tide turned again and I felt just kind of off. My symptoms didn’t really return other than the lethargy. That pretty much stayed until this evening when Daisy and I arrived at the mall. Chris and Tabi are at a pre-season Kings game so I told Daisy I’d take her to play which is where we currently are located. All the screaming kids I’m surrounded by must have chased away my blues because for the most part I feel fine- other than the constant annoyance of the aforementioned screaming children.

I hope I’m not really getting sick and that today is an isolated incident but as Chris also claimed a few of the same symptoms, I fear colds are lurking around the corner. Which I believe is slightly ironic what with the temps being well over 100. Today was 9 degrees cooler than yesterday and still over 100. Seriously, what’s up with that?

As soon as we’re home tonight, I have a ton of stuff to do. Daisy will be in bed and the rest of the family will still be out so it’ll be like I’m alone which is when I’m most productive. On the other hand, my productivity goes down like a sinking ship after 8pm so maybe all I’ll accomplish is more Webkinz time.

    Are you feeling any better now? I hope whatever it is, is short lived in your house!
    I was struck with nausea & a low fever last evening, then Gabe woke up this morning with a horrid cough & scratchy throat. A trip to the Dr ended in a diagnosis of the Croup. Just what we need 3 days before the wedding! @@
