I am officially sick again. I went to the doctor today and he said that I have an upper respiratory infection, and wrote me an excuse for today and tomorrow. So I’ll be staying home again. Aidan is going with his grandmother for 1/2 day so I can get some rest. Chris hinted that it was unfair for me to engage a “sitter” when I’m not going to work. It’s not like I’m sitting here and partying, though. I’m resting so I can feel better. Aidan and I will probably sleep all afternoon anyway. At least, I hope that’s the case.
I don’t have much of an appetite at all. From time to time I get a craving for something fast-food and fried, but I squash it. I have a headache that comes and goes. Coughing fits. I feel very weak and shaky. The doctor put me on lots and lots of antibiotics and special cough medicine pills–the same stuff I had in December. Aidan and I slept for four hours this evening. He’s still very sick too. But when we give him his Tylenol with codeine, he turns into normal Aidan for all of fifteen minutes before he is cranky and crying again. Poor little booba.
The soldier that lives behind us came home from Iraq over the weekend. He’s like a year early. I was going to Bible Study on Sunday when I noticed the flags on the street and the big welcome home sign for him.
Jaclyn Crum got cut from American Idol today. She’s from a suburb of Columbus, not far from me at all. I didn’t know her, though.
Ahhhh… that’s about how much I can take. I’m going to lie down again. Later…
P.S. I have 200 Gmail invites. Yes, 200.
