Still Sick

Yup. Still frickin sick.

I am constantly blowing my nose. And coughing.

Yesterday I only got thru 30 minutes of Kenpo before I felt like I was gonna die from not being able to breathe before I turned it off. In that time though, the sweat flew.

K was sick yesterday so that meant UFO night got delayed until next Wed. So last night I went to Panera and picked her up some chicken noodle soup then stopped at the grocery store and got her some gatorade and jello.

I got onion soup in a bread bowl for me from Panera. Soup just sounded fantastic. And I know I probably shouldnt have had the bread bowl, but to hell with it. I am sick. And I didnt eat a whole lot yesterday so I dont feel too bad.

Last night I went to bed about 9:30. I medicated myself pretty heavily so I wasnt up coughing all night. Unfortunately though, I kept waking up when I would hear Xavier cough. SO I still didnt get a whole lot of sleep.

Tonights plan is to go to bed...Early. Like 7pm early.

Landry and I did take the road trip yesterday. It was a very good thing to do.

I had previously written this post explaining everything I am going thru right now and giving some background, but the fact of the matter is that the background doesnt matter.

Here is the fact.

We MAY be having to move AGAIN in the spring. UGH! My in-laws (wonderful though they are) want to list the house in the spring. And with our financial state right now, I doubt we could get a loan to buy it. The timing is pretty bad. And I am pretty stressed. No not pretty stressed...VERY stressed. Hence why I cant get rid of a simple DAMN cold!

I did apply at a gym yesterday to be a personal trainer intern. I will be interested to see if I get a call back. I also added that I am getting my zumba certification end of October and they said that they may need another zumba instructor. That would be good. Then I could have some income coming in to put down on a home loan application. I am trying here.

It would literally kill me to move out of Dexter. But sometimes life sucks. So I have been checking out surrounding areas for very inexpensive fix me up train wrecks of houses. The one yesterday wasnt horrible. Really. A new roof is needed. Ok. So it has some water damage from that. The unknown is the peeling of paint and plaster that is going on around the windows. It is a foreclosure so I am hoping it sits there thru the winter and we can go in with a REALLY low offer to the bank. OR have something pop up for sale here in Dexter so I dont have to move the kids away from their friends. There are a couple possibilities here but we cant do much to see if we qualify right now until Aarons "stuff" is all finalized.

Ok...moving on. Enough pitty party.

Today is a true rest day for me. P90X recovery week builds in two rest days. Today and Sunday. I was hoping to lift a bit tonight but I think that I may forgo that and just medicate and go to bed.

Landry's drop off today at pre-school was a big fat suck. He was crying even before I got him out of the car. Ugh. I told him if he didnt go play then he was going to go home and go to bed. Stinker wanted to come home and go to bed. Ugh again. The teachers want me to drop him off at the end of the line instead of the beginning. They think that will help. We will see. My thought is that if I have to bring him home for 20 min (between Xaviers drop off and his) then I might not get him back in the car. Ugh. I will talk to his speech therapist about it today. Honestly I havent paid the next payment for his pre-school yet until I see if this is going to work out or not.

So that is it for me today. And I didnt weigh myself today. I know the weight is up from the bread bowl so I dont want to get depressed over the number on the scale. Frankly I have WAY too many other things on my docket right now.

Things I am looking forward to-- Feta bread Friday! Yup. We are going to Aubreys tomorrow! Woot! I need it!

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Tip of the Day:


  1. I do hope that everything works out. How come your in-laws want to sell?

  2. I love your educational images on your posts. I learn something new every day.

    I hope you feel better soon. I hate it when I don't feel 100%. Get well soon!
