I am going on day 12 spent with this lovely cold. We've certainly gotten close these past several days but we are not exactly on the best of terms. On Sunday I was a big sneezing mess. I was convinced that this was the turning point and I would be waking up Monday morning feeling more like a real person again. I was right, it was a turning point, unfortunately on Monday my cold took a turn for the worst (okay, not the worst, but definitely worse than things had been).
I still managed to fit in stadiums on Monday and Wednesday but that is all that I've done active this week. I haven't not moved this much in a very very long time. My body is definitely not up to much but mentally I am just going stir crazy. I haven't been really sick in a very long time and to have anything for this long is just completely out of the ordinary for me. I just have no idea what to do with myself...
It's been an interesting couple of days that's for sure:
Monday I made it through 3 dance classes, Tuesday I made it through babysitting at which point I thought it would be a great idea to take a Benadryl before teaching two dance classes. Oops... not my brightest idea. About half way through my first class I started to feel really fuzzy. Well okay, I didn't start to feel fuzzy - now that would have been very strange. My brain started to feel fuzzy. I could not think to save my life. Unfortunately that day we were working on the dance for the recital. Now, when you're working with 3 year olds there is only so much they are able to do. Even the simplest moves are very difficult to teach. I had planned out what I was going to teach the girls but immediately after I taught it to them I realized it was just not going to work at all. However, this was about when my brain completely abandoned me. I could not think of a thing to do to rescue the situation. I'm not sure what really went on for the rest of that class but somehow we got through.
They're so cute ;). I don't allow them to sit on this bench during ballet class but by the time they all hopped on the bench I was too far gone to even care.
My second class was much worse. They're a crazy bunch to begin with so I knew it was going to be a difficult class. As soon as my helper arrived I warned her about my situation and told her she was going to have to help me out a lot during class. Unfortunately she was not much help at all =/.
When I arrived home I went straight to bed.
Wednesday I could tell things were not improving at all but I still got out to do stadiums which surprisingly felt really great and then on my way home I got a last minute request to babysit.
Spent the day with this little cutie
It was a nice relaxing day :) Perfect - I would have died if I had to watch her three older brothers too
Believe it or not we did actually manage to get some chalk on the driveway ;)
Last night I decided that I probably have a secondary infection and that I should probably go get it checked out. I haven't been to the doctor since the summer of 06 so this was a big step for me. This morning I set up an appointment and sure enough I have sinusitis. This is good news because it means they can give me something to make me better! I have some antibiotics that I have to take for three days and then I better be better! I am so looking forward to this thing being done with. I'm ready for some running!!!
