Yesterday I took a sick day from the blog. I am sorry. I felt like crap. On Tuesday of this week I went to CrossFit with a faint hint of a sore throat coming on. The entire workout was all shoulders so it probably wasn’t such a great idea to do that. But you know me (directed at the people who actually do know me), I’m full of great ideas. NO! Seriously! I am! Really!
Ok, well maybe not all the time.
Anyway, that night (Tuesday…keep up) the faint hint of a sore throat turned into a raging bitch. My tonsil was basically infringing on my uvula. Whoa, that sounds like a dirty word. Well, yea, actually it kind of does. It’s the little throat punching bag thingy.
Yesterday my tonsil decided to keep at it and expand to the size of a small walnut and basically impede the drinking and eating process. Drinking water felt like a sharp knife to my throat. Forget eating a granola bar! It felt like I was swallowing glass shards (not that I have ever done that…one can only imagine).
Also, yesterday at work I was kind of busy (surprisingly) and I didn’t really have time to bust out a post. I was putting it off until I got home. When I finally did get home, I collapsed on my bed in exhaustion. Patrick had to gently shake me awake and tell me to put on my PJs. He is really sweet when I am sick. He was going to make me tomato soup instead of the pork chops that were originally on the menu. Since we didn’t have foodstuffs for a grilled cheese I opted for pasta and meatballs. At least that food was still softer than pork chops. I was able to get it down but it made my throat pretty raw.
Yea, Patrick is going to make a great dad someday. The way he takes care of me, I can only imagine how he’ll melt into a big ball of gushy feelings for our future kids. At one little peep, I can just see him going to the ends of the earth to make them happy. How do I know this? Well, because. He goes to the ends of the earth for me ❤
Well that’s all I’ve got. I still feel pretty awful today and I’m still pretty slammed at work. I am not going to let this whole skipping posts thing be a regular habit though!
