What's With Today Today?

Kelly, if you still read my blog, shout out! I saw a clip of Empire Records this week. Soooo many memories! Sigh.

Okay, so Spring Break. My first spring break at the school. It was pretty good! Despite the fact that we had several teachers scheduled off, and more than a few people had to call-in at different times throughout the week, there were no major catastrophes. It was a fairly smooth week. And the kids had a lot of fun on all of the field trips. I even got to go to story time on Thursday with the Pre-K classes. So much fun!

I'm pretty sure that I haven't mentioned this yet, but I got sick last week! I woke up on Friday feeling nauseated. I went to work because, well, that's what I do. But after being there thirty minutes or so, my back started to hurt. It was a VERY busy morning, so I was truckin' along, just doing what I had to do, but at 12:15, out of curiosity, I took my temperature. I was at 101.8. Now, my regular resting temp is 96.8. 101.8 is a number I haven't seen in a very long time. So of course, because I'm a baby sometimes, I started to cry. Not boohooing, but I couldn't keep a few tears from squeaking out. I didn't realize how bad I felt until my temp was high enough to send me home and I had the freedom to admit that I didn't feel good. Ugh. So after only 3.5 hours at work, I clocked out and called my doctor. 2.5 hours later I crawled into bed. No strep, no flu and no baby. (I wasn't expecting a baby, but they insisted on testing me...) My doc was perplexed so she said to treat it like a virus. Lots of water, Tylenol and Motrin.

Friday was a really rough day and Saturday wasn't much better. Saturday afternoon my symptoms evolved to include frequent trips to the bathroom. By Sunday evening, I felt better though. Still a low fever, but better. Monday afternoon, the dizziness began. It was constant for 36 hours or so. Since then I am dizzy now and then. As of yesterday, I'm feeling pretty good, but a low fever has been constant. Not sure what's going on, but it's not quite done.

It's crazy how just a low grade fever can really take the wind out of your sails. I've been tired and forgetful all week. I think I'm fine, but I'm SOOO thankful that today is Friday. I need a weekend.

This weekend, I plan on getting the last box unpacked. I know I said that last weekend, but move on. I think there's only one left, and it's in my room. It's just full of pictures. It will be nice to get some things hanging on the walls. We are also bed shopping tomorrow. After almost two years of marriage (more on that in a second ;-) we might finally have the means to buy a king size bed. Brett isn't a great sleeper, which means he is up and down a lot in the night. And I take a while to fall asleep which means I turn a few times before I'm out. In other words, in our queen size bed, we wake each other up pretty frequently. We never have this problem when we are traveling and staying in a king sized bed. Brett just received his annual bonus, and the way our paychecks are falling this month, we have one more than we usually do. We have put a lot of thought into the best way to use this money, and although we would REALLY like to take a chunk out of the credit card balance, I don't know when, if ever, we would have a way to get a new bed without a credit card. AND... Monday is our second anniversary =-) A new bed would be an awesome gift! Bed this year, trip next year? That would be nice. We have looked at three different places and have a couple more in mind tomorrow. I hope we find a good solution.

I think we are also going to break in the deck tomorrow! It's grilling weather =-) I'm waiting for the day when the house feels like home. It's not here yet, but I am loving the house.

Hopefully I will post pictures soon!

Have a great weekend!

I heard you were sick, but didn't realize it had been for so long! I hope you get lots of relaxing done. ARe you sure you can't come down on Friday?? I would love some girl time. And I miss you.Just saying, we can make space! I bet the boys would even give up their beds for both Uncle Brett and Aunt Kim to come and visit!

I hope you have had a WONDERFUL anniversary today. From Brett's FB, it looks like you got your new bed!
