I have it. What a fun day. Any sudden movement and I get dizzy. Oh well, at least it’s Friday and I can sleep in tomorrow. Have a marvy weekend everybody!


WW Weigh In

Down a pound. Then I promptly went home and ate more than a pound in food. The end.

Back from the Brink

Wow, that flu knocked me on my ass! I was in the bed from last Monday afternoon until Friday morning when I foolishly decided that I was well enough to return to work. Wrong. I stayed until after 2p, but it hurt. Alot. So, after leaving work early I went home and collapsed in the bed. I only got up to make sure that the adolescent ate something. Really stupid, he wouldn’t go without food. My mom sent over a big casserole of homemade mac and cheese, since I just didn’t have the energy to cook anything or be upright for any extended period of time. The son totally forgot about the yummy homemade mac and cheese and ate a bowl of soup instead.

Saturday dawned and I stayed in bed until I absolutely couldn’t stay any longer. I needed to go weigh in at WW. I figured I had lost a few pounds, but wasn’t sure how much. OMG, I lost 7 lbs.! Since being sick, I just haven’t felt like eating, although I have been making myself eat at least once a day. My hunger is coming back, but I still am not taking in as much food. I think I can eat more and put it on my plate, but then once I take a few bites I am full. Really full and I have to stop eating. Anyway, I lost 7 lbs! Yay!

So, here we are at the beginning of the week. Monday. Slow, slow Monday. Hope everyone’s week is marvelous!

Plague on my House

There is a plague on my house. I am laying in bed right now as I type this. My son is laying on the couch in the den all covered up. He came home Sunday from his dad’s feeling bad. Sore throat, snotty head, etc. He even went to bed at 8:30 that night, a full hour before his normal bed time. I also started feeling sick Sunday night. Scratchy throat, very lethargic. So, yesterday I left work to take my boy to the doctor to be told that he has the flu and that there is nothing but rest and fluids and his body will fight it off. Back to school Wednesday or Thursday.

Me, I don’t think I have the flu, I think I have bronchitis. Feels like it anyway. I couldn’t get in to see the doctor until tomorrow. This is new insurance for us. I changed this year because my company changed the benefits. My old insurance became not so beneficial to my wallet.

Have a great day everyone! Stay healthy!

I gained 4 pounds 😦

Catch up

So I am a big slacker and I didn’t go weigh in this week. I felt like I had gained and I didn’t really want to find out, so I took the week off. 🙂 I have discovered that I do better during the week than I do on the weekends. I guess I need to get out more on the weekends, that way I am not home to graze in the kitchen whenever I want. Either that, or keep no food in the house. I think the teenager would have issue with that.

Saturday night I had a board gaming get together with some friends. We ended up playing Pictionary. What fun we had! Lots of laughing, good food and good friends over. Okay, here is the weird part. At least I find it weird. I invited one couple who live across the street from me. We have started hanging out occasionally and I really enjoy their company. There is another neighbor who I didn’t invite. I didn’t invite him because it was more a personal friend party (words of my teenager) and I didn’t even think about inviting this other neighbor. I also didn’t invite him the NYE party I had. That was an oversight, or maybe it was my subconcious not wanting to have him over. Either way, no invite to the NYE party. The majority of the party were smokers (there were 8 of us) and they were outside having a smoke. Myself and 2 others were playing the Wii. Suddenly, there is a knock on the door. It was right around midnight, and I kind of knew that it was my neighbor who I didn’t invite. As soon as I opened the door he blurts out “Wow, you must really not like me. That’s two parties I didn’t get invited to”, to which I promptly replied “This isn’t really a party”. Then the ass wouldn’t come in the house. He just stood in the doorway after I kept telling him to come in. So, not only did he blast me once for not inviting him, he did it again when he left. You’d think he’d get the message by now. I just find him to be strange. My neighbors don’t. I pointed out that it is pretty strange to just show up at someone’s house when there are cars there and knock on the door because you want to come to the party. WTF? I find it weird.

So right after doofus shows up, the phone rings. I looked on the caller ID and saw that it was the local hospital. I picked up the phone and my mom is on the other end.

Mom: Did I wake you up?
Me: No mom, what’s wrong?
Mom: Is your party still going on? Are your friends still there?
Me: Mom, what is wrong?
Mom: Well, we are at the ER. Your father was having problems breathing so I brought him in. He has pneumonia.

I think I may have had a few more “What’s wrong” in there, I seem to recall asking several times before she finally gave up the info. So, dad is in the hospital with pneumonia. They did tests yesterday and when I called this morning to speak with him he told me that they suspect there may be a staph infection internally. They have to let the culture grow to see if it becomes a staph infection when it grows up. Now mom is sick with gross bronchial goo and my dad doesn’t want anyone to visit because he doesn’t want to expose us if it is staph.

If it’s not one thing it’s another.
