Sooooo much sickness in my house right now. I have a bad cold and now so does Devon.
I guess they say misery loves company, huh? But if he doesn’t stop laughing at the weird noises I make when I clear my throat, I’m going to change his Robitussin to prune juice. Evil goober. His sneezes are so loud he could probably wake up the dead.
I guess with so many people I know being plagued with the flu I shouldn’t complain, but this is miserable. I had it in my chest yesterday and now my face is so stuffed up I can barely talk or breathe.
What has been a blessing and a curse here, is that it’s my winter break. So yeah I don’t have to go to work all week, but no one likes being sick on vacation. I had plans with friends, things I wanted to do, but none of it is getting done. My cat is greatly enjoying it though. She’s a snuggly cat so she loves that she’s been able to cuddle with her sick humans the past couple days. If she’s not curled up next to me on the couch, she’s snuggled on Devon’s lap while he’s laid out in his recliner.
I look forward to being able to get up and move around easily again so that I can Lysol-bomb all the things and get the germs out.
And that whole healthy eating thing? Not happening as well as I would have wanted yet. The problem with me and colds is that I eat all the things. And I mean all the things. I’ve tried to make better choices in my several time per day feedings but it could be better. I mean, I AM sick so I’m not being too hard on myself about it. I’ll resume my efforts once the house is well again.
I think I’m going to go take more cold meds now and fall I to into a short coma with my snuggle cat. Well….at least until Devon sneezes and likely scares me half to death in my sleep. (And yes, we’ve behaved like this for ten years now, it has never changed).
If anyone wants to send some health points to this house it would be appreciated. (Yeah, I’m the girlfriend of a gamer, random gaming references happen here).
So, for some reason a little bit of a chest cold brought me down today. I had things I wanted to do but relaxing and medicating became a better idea. Luckily I’m off all week to make up for it.
Okay, so I’m weird. I really love going to the grocery store. I also really love going to Wegmans. I could spend all day in Wegmans. Part of my excitement in Devon and I moving to Columbia was that I now live super close to the Wegmans and don’t have to get on a major highway to go to one. It made me so happy.
Stop looking at me like I’m crazy.
I know for most people grocery shopping is pretty much equal to getting a root canal. These days. I’d rather go to a grocery store than a mall.
Again, stop looking at me like that.
I finally got Devon to go to Wegmans with me this morning (as he’s hopelessly partial to another grocery store chain around the Baltimore area). Once he saw the half of the store with the rotisserie chickens and the burger bar and all, he was happy. (And yes, we have gotten so domestic as to have Saturday be grocery store day.)
But we need to go back to eating better in this house. With the holidays and all, we sort of went away from it, but now those are over. I’ve admittedly put on a couple pounds and considering the forty pounds I’ve lost in the past few years; while a couple pounds may not seem like a lot, I don’t like them. I refuse to go back up in pant size, so the couple pounds need to go.
Neither of us are ones to stuff ourselves to the point that we’re so bloated that we can’t move or anything like that, but just the kinds of food we’ve been eating is heavier. Like we need to cut back on the fast good again, the ridiculously heavy sauces and things like that.
Devon and I are both off until after the new year because yay educators. So I think I’m going to try some lighter meals and recipes while we are home. I even have an entire Pinterest board on a Lighter Meals.
So, we bought a bunch of fresh vegetables and lighter foods (we did get some snacks that might not be so “light”, hey you can’t break everything at once). And there is going to be some recipe experimenting while we are home. Hopefully, there are some successes and if there are, I will share them here! 🙂
Cheers to a smaller waist line in 2015!
So, depending on which mindset you associate with, last Christmas might have been mine and Devon’s first Christmas. But, as far as we’re concerned, this is our first Christmas.
We spent a couple hours together last year for Devon’s annual family Christmas celebration but that was it. So we don’t count that. Last year was actually the first time Devon brought a girlfriend to a a family event (ironically his brother also brought a girlfriend for the first time last year, as well), so this was a big deal to the family. I was nervous because it was such a big deal. I mean, I’d met his mom many times over the years prior, his brother, a couple cousins; but Gramma and Grandpa were making me nervous.
A year later I’m coming back (to Grammas house, no less) so clearly I didn’t do too bad there. She also keeps calling me his fiancée, so really must have been okay.
But, I digress.
As far as either of us is concerned, this year is our first Christmas. We get to start some new traditions and continue some old. Best part is we get to be together for all of it, which is what we both wanted most last year.
I hope everyone has a great holiday. 🙂
