For those of you who do not know, on top of being a mommy, wife, blogger, and part time office manager, I am also a full time graduate student. It works out pretty well as I take blended classes. That also means though, that one weekend per month, I have to spend on campus (royally sucks) and the remainder of the class time in online.
This past weekend I had class. Friday I was at class from 6pm to 10pm; Saturday from 9am until 5pm and Sunday from 9am until 3pm. What a way to spend my weekend, right?
On top of that, hubby came home the week before last with a cold. Well as he was starting to feel better, I was starting to feel not so great. Friday, I had the runny nose. By Saturday, I was congested and hadn’t slept well Friday night. Saturday night after class, I had a fever and was still congested. Sunday I woke from a very restless night feeling like crap. I was congested, had a fever and was tired.
Oh, and on top of me not feeling well, the kids started complaining of sore throats on Saturday along with being congested. By Sunday, I was getting ear pain complaints. Fan-freaking-tastic.
Monday we did doctor appointments. We found out the kids both have double ear infections, but no strep (thank goodness). They were both prescribed antibiotics.
I saw my wonderful doctor (note the sarcasm) and he “thinks its a virus”, but prescribed me antibiotics “just in case”. (Hubby saw his doctor today and of course he has a sinus infection and was prescribed steroids.)
When we got home from our various doctor appointments and filling our prescriptions, I was done. I was physically weak. I had no energy. I couldn’t move. I had a fever. I had a headache. I had congestion plus a runny nose (is that not a total oxymoron). I had a dry cough. I was as miserable as miserable can get.
Today, I am able to move around. It’s the first I’ve been online this weekend (besides class). I still have congestion, but it’s clearing up and the runny nose is almost gone. The cough is loose and less frequent. But, now I have ear pain and blockage. Oye.
So there you have it. My absence explained! Although now that I am feeling 50% better, I am back in the game!
I am glad to see all my fellow bloggers have returned from BlogHer! Buggy starts school tomorrow! Life will now proceed to move forward! Oh, and stay tuned Sunday for baby #3 update as we missed it this week with the illness!
