I am so effing miserable. My head just hurts, really bad.
I got antibiotics this afternoon. They are gigantic pills. Bigger than the Mucinex. I can’t swallow them. I could barely swallow them when I cut them in half.
Why do they make pills so huge? What is the purpose? My throat just isn’t that big! I swallow and the pill is stuck in there while I gag it back up, it’s horrible.
I hope gagging these pills down is worth it. I want to feel better soon. I can’t keep dragging this leaden skull around.
I’m not usually this sick. Blah. My dog (Abby the lab) is trying to cling to my side, I guess she’s worried about me? Ada is freaking out and arguing with the dog over who gets to be closest to me.
I just want to lay in bed alone. For hours. With my eyes closed.
Instead I went grocery shopping, went to the clinic in the grocery store to get antibiotics, and then came home and put away the groceries. Fed the girls lunch. Straightened up the living room and kitchen. Rosie’s room is still a nightmare and we didn’t get any school done today, but I give up for now. I helped Rosie set up a huge wooden train track with multiple connecting roads and that’s keeping her occupied. Unfortunately Ada keeps tearing it all down Godzilla style and they won’t stop screaming and fighting over it, then Ada says, “Oh no I sorry Sissy. I so sorry!” Rinse and repeat.
I have the chills suddenly. Awesome sauce on this awesome misery and doom pie.
Yesterday was the last nice day of the fall I’m guessing. It was 65 degrees and sunny. Today the temperature has been slowly dropping all day and it’s supposed to bottom out around 40, and it’s drizzling rain with a lot of cold wind. Very gray. Though I do have to say the gray blue skies look pretty against the brightly colored fall leaves. I might even enjoy it if my skull didn’t feel like it’d been pounded by sledge hammers.
I’m listening to the Harry Potter Years 1-7 movie music play list on Napster right now. It’s really suited for this weather, and it’s kind of cheering me up a bit. (We got a 6 month free trial of Napster somehow and it’s GREAT. Holy crap! Instant music, the day new music is released there it is to listen to.)
Since yesterday was the last nice day in the forecast I let the girls play outside in the leaves across the street. My elderly neighbors don’t mind if we play in their yard, and they have the most beautiful tree. The leaves are bright orange.
The girls had SO MUCH FUN. They were screaming and rolling and throwing leaves, piling them up and jumping, just generally having a ball playing. I love to hear their happy giggles.
I took pictures. (Of course, right?) I wish they had been wearing brown instead of pink. Their pink clothes clash with the leaves, hah! The white balance on them isn’t perfect but my head hurts too much to really care at the moment.
Yes, I know that was a trillion pictures. I like to save memories.
I also have a bunch of Instagram (iPhone) pictures to share soon…
