I don't want to jinx it... But

Well, today is Saturday... since my last post my loving hubby has cleaned out 1 side of the garage and even tried to keep the house clean since he and mom cleaned while I was laid up in bed. I am starting to feel semi-normal! Last night I ventured out for the first time non sinus related... well not really just next door. The Woodards invited us over for wii and beverages. I am still not up for wii or beverages, but it was fun catching up with Kendall while the boys played wii. It was actually really nice to get out of the house, 10 days confined to the house can give you cabin fever. Of course for Robbie 1 day of being confined to the house due to ice and snow was enough for him.

I am really feeling better almost... do I dare say it... close to normal. I've had a bit of trouble sleeping or should I say getting to sleep. Robbie says I sleep too much. But, everyone can't be all early to rise in a great mood. I never promised to be a morning person. haha

We have been lucky enough to not lose power during this inclement weather. We were supposed to venture to my parents' house today for early birthday lunch for Robbie, but they cancelled because they had problems with their power last night. So, Robbie is like kid being cooped up, thinking of reasons to leave the house. And we have one for dinner but the time in between is killing him :)

That's all for now

Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired

Well, where do I begin??? Back in December I had the feeling I was getting a sinus infection... BOY WAS I RIGHT! Now, almost 2 months later I had endoscopic sinus surgery done this past Wednesday. From all of this I have come to realize I could never be one of those people who are chronically sick... I mean I have hated being out of work, not being able to go out with friends, and being confined to the bed has not been a high point at all!!!
Anyway, I am currently the luckiest girl in the world! My mom, hubby, and sweet pup Zeke have been taking good care of me since the surgery. At first I wasn't sure who was more worried about me, Robbie or Zeke. Mom and Robbie wouldn't let Zeke in the room with me the first night and he guarded the bedroom door trying to get in every time they would come check on me. Day 2 was Zeke's favorite because he got to sleep next to me and check in on me anytime he wanted. Day 3 was not the best day, I ventured out into the brave new world of trying to eat something. I never have had trouble with eating anything really... you can tell that by looking at me, but now soup even scares me. Soup... soup shouldn't scare anyone. I literally spent an hour trying to eat a bowl of soup without getting sick. Day 4 has been more of the same. I did have 2 visitors. Sara brought me some ice cream and we talked and talked and talked... Then Lizz came by and brought Popsicles galore and a frosty! I have identified that about an hour to 45 minutes before my next dose of medicine I start feeling sick again.

So, on that note it is time for medicine and I think I will be heading back to rest now... hopefully this will run its course and I will be back in action soon... keep your fingers crossed!
