hmmm...I don't even know anymore. I've been sick. Sick for over a week now. And I'm over it. Only I'm not. You know what I mean? I'm sick of being sick. And every time I think I'm feeling better, I don't. Oh yes, I'm having a little sicky pitty party. I sort of wonder if I've had the dreaded H1N1 Swine Flu. Because dang...I've had colds, and I've had 'the flu' but this has seriously kicked my butt. Only I guess I'll never know if it was the swine since unless you're like hospitalized they aren't testing. They're just immunizing.
Anyway, I'm trying really, really hard to feel better. I even took chicken out for dinner tonight. I just really don't feel like cooking it.
Isn't it funny how when Mom is sick, everything just keeps on ticking. But when Dad is sick...forget it. The world might as well be coming to an end. Moms are just not allowed to be sick. Ever. Apparently.
On a better note....we had a fabulous time in Santa Cruz this weekend. I actually really WAS feeling better Friday when we left. Pete and Megan had been sick too, and they were most certainly better. I still had a bit of a headache, but I didn't dare say anything because I really, really wanted to go. Is that stupid? Well, it may have proved to be in the end. I took some Tylenol and went about the day. The weather was perfect when we got there. 85 degrees warm and sunny. It's actually kind of rare for Northern California coast. It was lovely.
The kids got half naked, ran in the waves, dug for sand crabs, made sand castles... It was excellent.
My two step sisters, Kelly and Shannon showed up later that night. It was great to see them since I usually only see them 2 or 3 times a year. Saturday we headed over to the little town of Capitola.
It's a fun little beach town with little artsy shops mixed in with high fashion mixed in with down and dirty surf shops. Typical beach town. There was supposed to be a woman's surf competition but for some reason the sea was dead that morning. No waves at all. It was kind of eerie. After an authentic Mexican lunch in town we headed back to our beach. It was another great afternoon. Not quite as warm but still nice. Sunday morning was more of the same. Only it was a bit cooler. I think this was the downturn of my sickness. I felt fine all morning, but all of a sudden sitting on the beach that day, the wind picked up a bit and my ears got really, really cold. I think that was a very bad thing. I was miserable all the way home. :( At least I was able to enjoy the weekend.
So really, that's all that's been going on around here. Today was the first day all week that I didn't have a fever. I'm looking forward to the weekend again and hoping to be all better by then. Someone has to clean this house up, you know!
Oh and I did finish up the picture portion of my Week in the Life project. Now it's just time to get creating. In all honesty I sort of just want to scrap the beach pictures. But I think I'll still do the entire week too, because I love my album from last year. I also just ordered some supplies to start my December Daily album. Anyone else doing that again this year?
