Case of the Tuesdays.

I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by a bus.  Why you might ask?  I'm not sure why, maybe I was running around in my dreams, making myself tired...or maybe I was sleep walking, or having medicine dreams that I have no recollection of?  Yes, I think that's it.  Medicine dreams. I've been battling a lovely sinus infection this past week and half.  The codeine cough syrup my doctor prescribed to me is actually supposed to aid my sleep.  Instead I sleep heavily but feel like I've ran 5 miles when I wake up. It's extremely counter-productive if you ask me.  Why do I keep taking every night before bed you might ask? Well, I justify it because it keeps me asleep and I don't wake up coughing with one of those annoying tickles in my throat which is only cured by a large glass of water at 2am. Which inevitably leads to a 3:30am bathroom wake up because my bladder seems to be the size of a golf ball.  In conclusion, I would rather wake up semi-rested and disheveled after sleeping the whole night through rather than waking up 2-3 times each night feeling 10-15% worse than my disheveled state.  Overall, being sick is wretched and it needs to end asap. 

On a happy note; I FINALLY was granted access back to our bedroom last night since my banning to the depths of the cold, dank, solitary confinement, dark, scary dungeon (guest bedroom).  Which I did agree to, reluctantly, with a puppy dog sad face on.  But, I was trying NOT to spread my sickness to Brent, which I have successfully not done yet.  Fingers crossed, he hasn't come down with my plague (sinus infection).  

Once I arrived at work even my new hairdo couldn't perk me up.  Tuesday feels like Monday.  It's slow, my eyes are itchy, and my hamstrings are still sore from Saturday. Boo. My thoughts are continuously running away to Maui and my body is stuck in Tigard, what luck.  In my greatest effort to perk up I bought a Twix. Yes, candy.  I'm a bit of a healthy freak, so this purchase was a near abomination.  I figured it was okay because my sister will not be at basketball practice tonight so I've been a bit mopey and need chocolate.  I've also been training for the lovely Shamrock Run with Kelly so I'm hoping it won't stick my butt/thighs due to my high level of activity.  I need to trim/tighten up for bikini season. 

The work day is coming to a close, phew.  My next focus of the day is dinner.  What to make for dinner?  I'm not sure, last night was some uneventful soy sauce chicken, veggies, and rice.  I want something satisfying tonight like steak.  Unfortunately we don't have any steak on hand, and it's too rainy to BBQ. Boo to this winter forecast.  Perhaps some pork chops, maybe spaghetti?  We'll see what I round up. For now I can hope for a Happy Wednesday and an evening of watching my favorite show, Biggest Loser!!!!  Don't judge me, it's a great show. Period.
