Cold 2 Jen 0

Well, that about sums it up. This morning, I woke feeling OK. The fever was gone, and despite the lingering ache and tightness in my upper chest (from the coughing), I felt like I was on the mend. I decided to get our monthly grocery shopping done. BIG mistake. Talia was grumpy. My energy wasn't completely back. She was in tears about every little thing...from being told "No" to falling down (which she did A LOT today). My fever made a rapid re-appearance about halfway through, despite the ibuprofen I took before we left. So, we finally get done, we're in line...Talia falls again, tears, etc...I put her back in the cart, but she keeps crying. Of course, I thought it was just because I put her back in the cart. Turns out, she got a little cut. Unfortunately, the cut was on her knuckle. So, blood EVERYWHERE. All over her hands, pants, blanket, and the carseat by the time I managed to get a bandaid on her. Fruit snacks did make her feel better on the way home, then we stopped at Wendy's. Eating a cup of ranch dip with a few bites of chicken nuggets is guaranteed to make her feel better. I put up the fridge and freezer stuff, changed into my sweats, and now I'm going to lay on the couch for awhile and try to regroup. The rest of the groceries will have to wait until the boys get home and I can use them to bring it all in.

Stupid Cold.

He you got through it. What else do you want me to bring over that you could work on and it wont take up any energy? I know do you want to barrow my Pride & Prejudice CD's? After six hours of that you should be felling tops!

Email me if you want me to bring them over! I totally will, if you don't already have them.
