I would love to say that this was an exciting week. That it was full of adventure and that I have something wonderful to share.
Nope not the case. The fact of the matter is that I have been feeling like death warmed over for the last week or so. My daughter gave me her cold and let me tell you something. When you are in your 30’s you don’t just bounce back from a “cold” like you did in your teenage years or in your 20’s.
I was the absolutely worse thing ever! Everything on me ached and hurt. I could barely move and I was coughing so much and hard that I thought a cracked a rib at one point. ..Seriously! my head hurt and my eyes felt like they were going to explode at some points. Hell even my teeth hurt…WTH?? Never had that happened. I think I must have gone through 2 rolls of toilet tissue because I was constantly blowing my nose.
This past weekend my boyfriend was spending the weekend with his kids. So I was here by myself with my daughter. Being a single mom has it difficult moments from time to time, but when you aren’t feeling well and just want to climb into to be and hibernate it is really does suck. My mom was home not feeling well so she couldn’t help and my dad tried as much as he could, but he did have things he needed to do.
I will say that my daughter was wonderful during this time. She listened and spent a good time entertaining herself while I laid down on the couch. She read, she played with her toys, played on the computer. She really does make it easy at times to be a single mom. But still she is only 4 so not like I could go to sleep and leave her to her vices. By the time Sunday night came around, and my boyfriend walked in the house, I was spent! I just looked at him and burst into tears. I was just happy that there was someone here to help me and so that I could finally go to bed and get some rest without worrying too much about my daughter.
The funny thing is that he is always telling me how pretty and attractive I am..but not on Sunday. He just stared and me and apologized in advance and said “baby, you look like ass…please go to bed and get some rest.” I was mortified but I knew it was the truth. Nothing hot and sexy about coughing up flem, blowing your nose constantly and having bags under your eyes.
The good news is that I am doing a lot better today. Probably all the NyQuil and DayQuil , Advil and anything else I was taken to get rid of my many problems. I am still coughing but not as much as before and I can actually breath again through my nose like a regular person.
Hopefully this weekend will be better!
