Part of being sane, is being a little bit crazy. - Janet Long
The above was one of my quotes for the day and I laughed out loud when I read it. The last couple of weeks have been a lot of crazy for me. I'm hoping that makes me very sane, because right now, I sure don't feel that way.
I've had a sinus infection since the Sunday before last which has completely colored my world in every shade of green and yellow. I haven't been this sick in a long time and it's really wearing me down. My mornings are spent getting cereal and chocolate milk for Billa and then hacking up my lungs and clearing my sinuses of all the gunk that's collected there during the night. I spent an entire week working from home because I felt so yucky and I had to bail on baking a birthday cake for a friend's son. I thought I'd recovered enough, but I was just too worn down. Earlier this week I thought I was getting better, but now I think it's turned into bronchitis or something similar. My coughing at night has become so bad that I had to spend last night on the couch to keep from waking everyone up. I can't speak half the time which is really frustrating. Sometimes answering a question with a simple yes or no is even too much at times.
I'm trying to remain upbeat about it all though. I'm grateful I have a job that allows me to work from home, so I didn't have to miss any work, although in hindsight I probably should have taken a day off to rest. Things financially have been terribly hard lately and by not going to work, I saved considerably on gas since I didn't have to go anywhere except daycare and back. It also enabled me to get a bit of cleaning done around the house that desperately needed to be done. That meant more time with Billa and Michael. It also meant enjoying the view outside my window and being able to sit in my pajamas while orking. That's always a plus, right? I don't know about this one, but my pal Wendi says that all my coughing is giving me a workout and rock hard abs. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt on that one, lol!
I'm hoping that this will all pass soon. I'm ready to climb back in the saddle and have some sense of normality, whatever that looks like. I'm taking the day off tomorrow to go to the pumpkin patch with Billa's daycare and I think spending the rest of the day lounging and doing nothing is just what the doctor ordered.
