This weekend I was the one who was sick. I don't know if I caught the same thing that Julia had or something else completely but it was rough there for a couple of days.
I really became thankful for many things this weekend:
-Derek works from home on Friday and was able to help with the kids after school.
-My bed, it is very comfortable and I was also grateful to be able to use it. Usually when I'm sick I still have mommy responsibilities but the kids were in school and Derek was around so I was able to take it easy more than usual.
-Tivo. While I was in bed resting I watched several movies and shows that I had tivo-ed over the past couple of weeks. Isn't Tivo great?!
-Comcast's On Demand. One night I couldn't sleep at all so I went downstairs and watched "27 Dresses" on demand (we have the premium channels on demand for now). I really liked it. Sure it was cheesy and predictable but who cares at 3 in the morning!
-Nose drops. Cold medicine doesn't do a thing for me, but for some reason I had never tried nose drops until last year. Wow, they really make a difference! I was able to go to sleep last night since I could actually breathe.
-And that brings us to the ability to breathe. You take for granted being able to breathe out of your nose until that ability is gone. Isn't it amazing when you are able to breathe again? Just a wonderful thing!
Thanks to Derek and the kids for helping out!
Now I really have a lot to do-- the house is a wreck, I have a million orders to finish up, I am way behind on the laundry, and I am trying to start my Christmas shopping.
We're now back to the regularly scheduled programming. :)
