This week is the definition of terrible both for the diet
Monday night we went to the in-laws for dinner like
normal. They had made Lasagna with
garlic bread for dinner. So I had green
beans with some sauce from the lasagna. Wasn’t
enough food and I was not feeling right.
I decided to go watch TV with Spincycle
and CJBuddy while they finished eating and cleaned up. I was snuggling with Spincycle because I was
freezing. Next thing I know they are
waking me up to leave. I had fallen
asleep while sitting next to Spincycle.
Middle of the night I woke up with a fever and a massive
headache. I took some pain killer and went
back to sleep. By the time I woke up to
get the kids up I was so sick I could barely move. Kilo took the kids to school and I could
barely breathe due to a sore throat, let alone drink or eat anything.
When I went to get the kids from school I decided this wasn't
just a cold and headed to the doctors.
They did a rapid strep test (I had white patches) and it came back
negative. So feeling sad that things
didn't get better went back home to feeling awful.
By Wednesday morning I was still getting worse. I had a really high fever that wasn't going
down much even on full pain killers. As
the day went on I felt worse and worse.
That night at 9:00pm I get a call from the doctor. The culture test for strep came back
positive. So they called in some
antibiotics. Kilo wanted Yogurt Land
so we got some on the way there. I
decided to have some with him since I hadn't got any food down all day. It felt so darn good.
Thursday I spent most of the day drugged up and sleeping
still feeling awful. My mom’s side of
the family had a big Christmas get together planned for that night at a local
roller skating rink. She wanted me to
come despite not feeling well. So I
drugged up good and we went roller skating.
Kilo and the kids had a BLAST.
We at the karaoke party room, so when the kids were tired
from skating they had treats and singing they could do. I mostly watched because I still felt
terrible even with the double dose of pain killers. But I did borrow the kid’s scooters and go
around the rink a few times.
Friday I am still not feeling quite human yet. Still can’t eat and super sore throat. The kids had wanted to go see a free
gymnastics meet at a local college. But
it was also payday. So I did the
shopping because we were out of food and by that time I was so done for the
day. So we talked the kids into staying
home and doing a movie pizza night instead.
I was grateful they stayed home as I fell asleep again during the movie.
Saturday we went and saw Hobbit with Kilo’s family. I was starting to finally feel slightly
better. Then I went home and got the
younger kids ready for a family outing.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has a big
block they own here. Each year they
decorate it with Christmas lights and nativity scenes. Since I was a young child we have gone every
year as a family.
The last 10 years we have got together with my family and
drove the Trax and Front Runner (mass transit train systems) downtown to see
the lights. It ends up being about a 6
hour event by the time we ride the trains, get dinner, walk around, and then
ride the trains back.
I reset my pedometer right before we left. By the time I got home I had done just short
of 7,000 steps. Kilo says his was more
then that but that is what mine said.
Here are some fun pictures Kilo took
