I am taking a little hiatus from blogging today because I have a stupid cold. I went to the doctor yesterday for a follow-up visit – I was healthy at 1:45pm. Come 6:30pm and I am a sneezing, sniffling, coughing mess. It’s got to be allergies, right?
This afternoon my oldest son was going to his first birthday sleepover party, so we dedicated the second-half of the day as “G’s Fun Day”. I couldn’t wait to spend some one-on-one time with him! I envisioned taking a bicycle ride around the neighborhood, playing basketball and baseball in the front yard, then going to dinner. He said he wanted to play a Wii game and then a board game, after dinner, and then watch a family movie. It was planned out perfectly. Right?
This morning it was like a faucet took over my nose (sorry if TMI). Every time I coughed I cringed because it killed my throat. Oh, and the pain in my right ear…that didn’t feel too good either. Considering the fact that I have been sick way too many times in the past 60 days, I had to nip this in the bud. I choked on the $95 payment for the urgent care center, but was glad to come out with a diagnosis of only “a cold”. Seriously! My husband brought G to a bounce house place, Carvel and Toys R Us while I rested and caught up on Guiliana and Bill. I totally missed out on “G’s Fun Day”. 🙁
2 hours of rest later and one Mucinex and I am downstairs building Legos with my little guy. We are going to his favorite restaurant for dinner (I may be a bit sniffly but I am not missing out) and then he said we will all watch a movie together. 🙂
