Why oh why must I be sick?
There are a few things that make my not being well right now really awful. First off, this is the last week of Summer vacation. I had planned to take my girls to the beach since most of the Shoobies wouldn't be there this week. I was also going to load my girls up on fast food lunches (Yeah, I know Mom of the year here!). Once school starts, Ellie and I will visit Chick-Fil-A once a week for lunch after school. And we will visit Mc Donald's every Thursday night after Madeline's CCD class is over. That will be the extent of our fast food dining for the majority of the school year. Sure, I'll squeeze in an extra Chick-Fil-A trip here and there, but it won't be as frequent as I'd like.
I was just over at Faith and Family Live and I saw this video (which I know I've seen before) and it just makes me feel even worse that I'm still not well enough to make the ten minute drive over to Chick-Fil-A so I can get some of their delicious nuggets and lemonade. I could cry. I've been craving Chick-Fil-A since last week, but I just haven't been able to get there. Even the girls keep asking when we're going to go there. Sigh.
I'm still not feeling better. My body is clearly fighting something off. I woke up about every 30-45 minutes starting around 4 O'clock this morning drenched in sweat in my very chilly bedroom. I've been up and moving around a little bit for about two and a half hours now. I got a call from Madeline's friend's mother asking if she could take Madeline to the park this afternoon. I'm so grateful that someone is going to occupy one of my kids for a few hours and have her do something fun this week. I feel so awful that I'm sick this week. The girls and I should be packing as much fun as we possibly can into this week. Sadly, they're watching me lay around and barely function.
