Sick as a Dog

I've been super sick this week. I started feeling a little puny Monday and since I had to work two and a half hours later then normal for a meeting I came home at lunch time and took a nap. By the time I left work I had a full fledged sore throat and felt like crud. Of course it didn't help that it was like -59 degrees. OK, so I didn't have a thermometer but it was cold and the drizzle was frozen to my windshield. Tuesday I managed to work about an hour and half maybe two hours before I had to go home. I called my Dr office on Wednesday and got in to see the Nurse Practitioner. She was a sweetheart and was excited to hear I was pregnant. She gave me a script for some antibiotics that are considered safe for pregnant women such as myself and recommended a decongestant to take for the massive drainage I was experiencing.

Filling the prescription was an adventure in it's own. I won't gross you out with all the details but I think the woman who cleaned up the mess should get paid triple whatever she gets!

I have to go back to work tomorrow. Totally sucks but I'm out of sick days and they're being punks about us taking sick days. Guess I can't be sick again until April when my year rolls over.

I just hope that Nickel stays well because I can't stand to be around him when he's sick! He acts like a total helpless baby and won't do a dang thing. But when I'm sick I'm expected to still get Peanut ready for school, pick her up from school or daycare, have the house picked up, change the sheets every couple of days, wash dishes (at least the silverware which he's scared of) and fix cheese cake. You think I'm kidding? I'm not.

And I can't find my fingernail file and they're driving me nuts!!! :(

So there's my update, AJ. Happy? LOL!

Wow, you're to sick to be blogging.
You shouldn't really have updated.

Now I feel bad. Sort of. At least NOW I KNOW why you haven't been blogging. :o)

I am glad you went to the doctor and didn't try to wait it out like I do and get bronchitis.

Do you need to have some chicken soup delivered??

So sorry to hear you're feeling sick. My husband is a bit of a baby when he's sick too. He freely admits as much. Get some rest, and feel better soon!
