Welcome to Manic Mommy Monday hosted by Heather from 2 Sleeping Babies and Tara from Crunchier by the Day! Every
week once in a while I link up blog posts that are updates about us and what is going on in our lives.
I swore I was going to keep up with my blog again. And last Monday I wrote about how sick The Gnome was. It started with Hubby and I actually made fun of him, calling it a “man cold.” The Gnome got it and he didn’t complain as much as his daddy.
And then I got it.
It wasn’t so bad for the first two days. But I couldn’t do what Hubby did and take Mucinex to dry up all of the nasty congestion. Since I’m pregnant, I tried to just ride it out. And then I woke up on Thursday and looked like I got punched in both eyes because they were so swollen. I made it until Friday before I ended up in the urgent care.
Today is day 4 on antibiotics (which I really, really, really wanted to avoid) and I am finally feeling human again. My face is still a little sore but it isn’t swollen anymore. I finally slept through the night last night for the first time in 3 days.
I even stayed off of Facebook for two days because it hurt to open my eyes. If that isn’t sick, I don’t know what is!
I will never, ever give my husband crap for his man colds again.
How’s your Monday going? If you enjoy reading about The Gnome & his family, like us on Facebook, add us on Google+, and follow us on twitter! While you’re at it… check out our Networked Blogs box in the right sidebar!
