Sick of Being Sick

Hubby and I have both been sick for what seems like forever.  We originally got sick during the last week of July and were both on antibiotics.  Then we got better and now we are sick again, but this time with different things.  About 10 days ago I went back to the doc because I was just feeling crappy and found out I had an upper respiratory infection.  She put me on Levaquin for 14 days and I am almost done with them.  Then last week hubby went to the doc because he just had absolutely no energy, was losing weight, and was having stomach issues. We found out he has some kind of stomach bug and he is on Cipro for 7 days.  Unfortunately, the side effects from the medications are almost as bad as the problems they are treating.  I have no energy, my muscle ache and cramp, and I have had a headache so long I am not sure what it would feel like to not have one.  Hubby is the same way.  We know it is the medication and we both only have 3 days left, so we are sticking it out.  We are both so tired of being sick. 

Being sick seems to be overshadowing everything.  Only 3 more days and we can get our normal lives back on track.  I am sooooo ready.

Yard of the Month

Our yard was chosen as one of the yards of the 2 yards of the month for our neighborhood. All the credit goes to hubby. Since he did all the work, I guess he gets the gift card too.

One Of Those Days

Do you ever have those days where you just wish you could start over or crawl back in bed and stay there?  That is what I would like to do today.  It started when my dogs woke me up an hour earlier than normal.  So instead of sleeping until 5:30, I was out of bed at 4:30.  Then when I went next door to feed the neighbors dog about 6am, I noticed the police driving by doing their normal patrol.  About 20 minutes later when I was coming out, they were driving by again.  This time they pulled over to the curb and asked if everything was okay.  I told them yes and asked if there was a problem.  They had apparently noticed the garage closing when I went in and was just checking.  I explained what I was doing and they went on their way.  Then I stopped at the store to get my breakfast only to learn they didn't carry my kind of yogurt - argh.  So I settled for another brand and headed on to work.  Once finally at work, the emails just won't stop.  It is not unusual for me to get around 100 emails a day, but I think I have already gotten that many before lunch today.  I think it is time for me to take my salad and go find a nice quiet place to hide and eat!
