We're sick. All three of us
It all started with Lane. Last Thursday she woke up with a fever and kept it for about 36 hours. It disappeared and was followed by a nasty cough, and shortly afterward, a runny nose. Shannon and I thought we were going to luck out and not catch it from her since it had been a week and we were still ok.
And then yesterday Shannon woke up with a sore throat and drainage. I woke up with a slightly sore throat but nothing too bad.
And then today happened.
My head feels like it's going to explode and my nose is running like a fountain. I keep coughing up stuff. And all I want to do is sleep. While Lane took her nap this afternoon, I also slept...for two hours. And I could have kept sleeping. Instead I got up and took her to the park, which only resulted in my head hurting even more from pounding the pavement for 40 minutes. It's 8:05 and I'm contemplating going to bed.
I have things to do, people! I can't afford to be getting sick. My in-laws arrive a month from yesterday and I have a serious vacation to plan! I have a language to learn! I have a family to feed and a house to keep clean! But instead of doing those things I'm staring absentmindedly at my computer screen with a tissue stuffed up my nose, trying to muster up the energy to at least read a book or watch an episode of Friends. Ugh. Just ugh.
In other news, Lane has a few new tricks up her sleeve. Yesterday Shannon discovered when asking her where all the different animals are in one of her books that when you ask her, "Where's the goose?" she points to HERSELF! How hilarious is that? We obviously call her "goose" a lot, since she doesn't even point to herself when you ask her, "Where's Lane?"! She's also learned how to "give us five" and it's really cute. Stick out your hand and say, "Give me five!" and she'll grin and slap your hand. Goodness, I love that girl. She's too cute. Now if only her cuteness could cure my headache...
