I woke up yesterday with a terrible sore throat that just got worse throughout the day. At seven last night I was wiped and literally fell into the bed. This morning trying to swallow brought tears to my eyes so I got myself to the urgent care only to find out that I have strep throat :-( On top of the ankle. Ugh! So, rather than running (today was the big race day I trained for with bestie M) or cheering for John at his tournament game, I slept most of the day, downed our traditional sick day soup (Chick-fil-A chicken noodle) watched Bridesmaids (again…still as funny as the first time) on tv, logged some reading and gave my ankle loads of rest of ice.
I was so down in the dumps last Friday (regarding the ankle) that Honey arranged for his mama to sit the littles so that we could go on a last minute date night. Before hitting up a new sushi restaurant, he was a doll to take me to Target and help me figure out how to ride the rascal. This is what our Friday nights have come to…
The baby had his Kindergarten orientation last week. Needless to say, it was all old hat to him. He walked the halls with confidence and is beyond ready to start big kid school in August. I’ve still got some preparing to do :-)
Before being hit with strep, I got myself to the pool to swim three times since my last doctor appointment. He said it was absolutely, positively the only form of movement that he approved so I got myself some goggles, a swim cap and a month pass to the county lap pool. It’s amazing how easy swimming has been for me compared to running! I swam competitively through high school but it had been twenty years since I actually tried to swim a lap. I’ve been logging 40-45 laps in 30 minutes and it feels awesome!!!!
Mother helped me clip these gorgeous peonies from Honey’s mama’s yard this week. She was out of town and let me know that they were all mine. I have adored having these in the house and really want to plant my own now!!
Can you believe this doll?!?! I love it when Sister blows up my phone with texts of the little angel.
That’s pretty much it as far as goings and doings around these parts. I’m about to hit the hay!
