that's a picture of my planner from last week. it was a really really busy week. what have i done this week? gotten sick...and that's about it. b was sick with a cold over the weekend, j started coughing his tiny little lungs out on monday [but thankfully recovered quickly and is pretty much better now] and lucky ME got hit with the worst of it yesterday.
annnnd it's still here, going strong. plus now i'm too paranoid to take cold meds because the doctor told me the decongestants can affect your milk supply if you're nursing, and this afternoon j had a very un-characteristic freak-out and was starving barely two hours after eating, so no more meds for me.
just because i feel crappy, and b is at school all night, and j is asleep, here's a list of why i hate colds:
- my lips are chapped ALL THE TIME
- my nose is like a fountain of snot [sorry, i know that's gross, but don't act like it's never happened to you]
- i want to stay in bed all day even though i "only" have a runny/stuffy nose, headache & cough
- my head is cloudy, i can't remember anything and i just sit around in a daze breathing though my mouth
i loooove making lists [though not necessarily lists like the one above]. my planner is especially good for this. i made major lists when i worked full time and even kept some of my notebooks as a memento of making lists and crossing things off. now that i'm a sahm my lists consist more of things like "paint nails," "pay hospital bill," "vacuum," etc but whatever, i still get major satisfaction out of crossing them off.
this week "groceries" has been on my list every single day and i just barely crossed it off with a trip to target an hour ago. i'm not feeling incredibly motivated so now i'm off to sit on the couch and catch up on dvr. is that productive enough to be added to my to do list?
