Rumor has it that we're going to have SUNSHINE!!! here in Seattle today. So I tentatively made plans with Lizzie to take our kids out for a walk around Green Lake. Because I've barely left the condo since last Friday. I was sure that I would wake up this morning feeling healthy(ier) and energized.
Instead I woke up with what looks like pink eye. Seriously, this morning I actually wondered for a while if I qualify for euthanasia under our state's new law. My patheticness count is this: 7 months pregnant, runny nose, cough, two (yes TWO!) congested ears that I can barely hear out of, one earache, and one suspiciously pink eye. I did go to the doctor yesterday and everything is just a virus, with the exception of the earache, which is apparently on the border between looking like inflammation from a cold and a full-blown infection. So I have drops for the ear pain and other than that am doing a limited amount of OTC stuff.
On that note, yesterday I was at the grocery store and bought 2 boxes of kleenex, a bottle of tylenol, and some cough syrup. And the clerk asked how my day was going. I would have thought that was fairly evident just by my purchases. :)
Ethan and I are not leaving home today. I think I might even scrap the idea of getting dressed. I see a lot of Veggie Tales and Little Einsteins in his near future.
I really wish my unborn child would let me have back just a little bit of my immune system. This is getting ridiculous.
