Well, still sick as hell. This is day 5 or 6 now. I can't eat anything without being ill. Nothing stays in me for long. I really have to wonder if when I went for my check-up last week if I picked up a virus there…
The weekend was pretty uneventful but hard nonetheless. We did our grocery shopping, cooked dinners, had a movie night (Zach got to rent his own movie so we could watch ours), and Aaron went and got a new (used) rocking chair to replace my Mom's which was about 20 years old. There was no padding left in it. She likes it though, so that's the good thing.
I spent a LOT of time sleeping and crying. When I feelthis ill I tend to spiral into depression pretty easily. This morning I called my husband because I felt so sick and just wanted someone to talk to and started crying because he was so nonchalant about it, like it didn't matter to him and it was my problem. He grudgingly told me that if I needed him to come home he would. My thought was "screw you, if that's how you feel about it, I'll die first", but we all know I'm hard-headed and prideful at times. That's how I got through most of my life ~ when people told me "You can't do it" I'd say "Really? Watch this A-HOLE!" and would proceed to blow them out of the water. But I've learned over the years that anger doesn't really help anyone, you have to do things out of self-love, not to prove somebody wrong. But I still have my moments.
Despite how sick I am (I'm afraid to not be near a bathroom) I had to take Zachary for school registration this morning. After the worst of the nausea seemed to have passed, I finally got dressed and decided to go and get it done. I won't lie ~ it was really rough for me, but he was excited to meet his new teacher and see his classroom and his friends. We saw his old teacher from the last 2 years, and amazingly, she too moved up a grade level again! She was really sad that she didn't have Zachary in her class for the 3rd year in a row, but she made sure to mention that the principal was really good about honoring transfer requests if things didn't work out with his new teacher. I'm glad to know I have that option if it doesn't work out. Like I've said before ~ I trust her because she knows Zachary so well and understands his quirks and works with him on them.
After we left the school I decided that I should go ahead and go to the bank to get the rent money and then stop by the store to pick up some stomach medicine. We made it through both without incident (if I don't eat, I do okay) and then came home. Now here I am, blogging because I haven't been keeping up and have beenworrying about my friends here. I know I'm terrible about answering the phone too, and I'm sorry. Thank you all for calling though. It means a lot to know I'mbeing thought of.
Last night my Mom and I went to JCPenny's because a friend of mine here sent me a 25% off everythingcard for last night. I had to make several runs tothe bathroom, butwe both found some nice things and I got $70 worth ofmerchandise for $30 between the card and the sales. Wohoo! Thank you so much Nancy!That was so thoughtful of you and I appreciate so much!
Today I'm going to continue to rest and try to take it easy. If this doesn't go away inthe next day or two I'm going to go to the doctor. I'm still running a fever and I've alsogot a nasty headache withit too.
(sigh) Only onemore day with my son at home. I'm going to miss him and be pretty lost forawhile without him here.But I promised myself that I'd find things to occupy me and so I will. I mayeven sign up to become a substitute specifically for his elementary school, whichwould work out great. Then I wouldn't have to worry about having to get him to school and me to work on time. We'll see. I think it would be good for me though. 🙂
Ihope everybody's having a decent Monday. Right now I feel half-way okay because I haven't eaten anything since 9 this morning. I may try to have some yogurt for dinner…
Love to you all. (((HUGS)))
