Just My Luck! The Mildew's stuck! Yuck! Yuck! (a quote from the My Little Pony Movie)
But yes, it would be Just My Luck that I would get sick 4 days before Christmas. I seriously don't understand how this happened. I never leave my house unless I am going to the Hospital. I was my hands all day and use Hospital grade soap along with Hospital grade hand sanitizer in-between washes. I make sure no one comes over who is sick.... but last night I started getting a sore throat and today... I am sick!
You know, I am actually quite pissed off about this. Growing up, there wasn't a single and I mean SINGLE Christmas that I can remember where I wasn't sick. Strep Throat usually. I remember laying on the couch in the dark looking at the Christmas tree lights sweating with fever, throat burning like hell, waiting for our Home Teachers to come over and help my Dad give me a blessing. Every year it was the same story.
AND to make matters even worse... I don't have the luxury to be sick (and yes, it's very sad to say that right now in my life, being sick could be considered a luxury if it meant I could sleep more). What if Noah gets sick???? This is the big question. He is already acting sick. And if he gets sick from me... well lets just say there would be GUILT! I just can NOT get my sweet precious baby sick after all he has been through.
So, since I can feel it in my sinuses and this sort of thing ALWAYS gives me a sinus infection or Bronchitis, I went to the Urgent Care. I was told I have a virus and there is nothing they could do. I begged for some sort of anti viral med or even an antibiotic to help clear up and prevent any sinus infection. But the mean mean man refused. Good grief! I want my $25 back!
Even though Noah is on Synigis (or however you spell the fortune in a syringe) it still isn't a 100% protection against RSV. As if I needed THAT added to my stress level.
Anyways... I am sorry about the rant. But I am tired, my house is a mess, I'm worried about getting Noah and Lilly sick, I haven't finished or even really started wrapping presents, and my cell phone is being a pain in my butt. Does that cover it? Probably not. Just needed to vent my frustrations. Really, if the mean mean man had just given me something, I wouldn't be so upset. I would at least feel like I was doing all that I could to help keep Noah healthy. But since he didn't, all I am doing in walking around my house infecting everything.
I've considered wearing a bandanna around my mouth and nose all day but figured Lilly would have a fit. She's funny like that.
Oh which reminds me of something that naughty little booger did today.
I was talking on the phone for work and some how I pick up this unexpected noise. The toilet flushing. "That's odd." I think. Then it comes again. Suddenly my brain wakes up and I realize that the toilet is NOT flushing itself and this could mean bad things.
I rush into my bathroom to find Lilly. Flushing the toilet over and over again. The toilet seat is completely wet and the bowl is completely FULL of random items. An envelope, a package of gum, a receipt, a package of wipes, and a whole bunch of stuff I can't remember. But the bowl was FULL! I have no idea what was lost when she flushed but at least it didn't plug.
And as I sit here writing this I realized a horrible thing. I didn't wash her hands afterwards. I was still on the phone and I was distracted. She did wash them before bed but that was a few hours later. OH MY GOSH!! I AM A TERRIBLE MOM!!! I can't believe I did that! It's no wonder I am sick. It's toilet karma trying to teach me a lesson. Crap! (ha ha just a little bathroom humor)
