Aiden and I went to Illinois this weekend for my cousin's wedding, hence the lack of proper posts. I do not have my thoughts or photos organized as of yet. I can say that I came back 3 pounds heavier with a northern head cold. Oh and also lots of excellent memories. Hopefully I can get those memories posted over the next few days.
We got back Monday night, but I took Tuesday off so I could get everything in order before heading back to work. I had a doctor's appointment first thing yesterday morning and I got my flu shot. I spent the rest of the morning running errands for Travis and I. When I got home I was exhausted. So I slept for almost FOUR HOURS. Ha! I didn't want to get up, but I forced myself out of bed to go pick up Aiden from daycare. I spent the rest of the afternoon unpacking and doing laundry.
I'm in the middle of the nasty, dribbling part of a cold. My sinuses are on fire and I have a box of Kleenex attached to my hip. It's always tough for me to be sick. I generally have a lack of appetite, but that doesn't mean I can just stop eating. My body doesn't work that way. Since I didn't have much of an appetite this morning, I only had a tiny bowl of Cheerios. When I got to work I realized I was going to need more than that so I stopped at the coffee shop and got a protein shake. I wish I had five bucks to blow daily because I would totally get this shake every morning. It has a banana, peanut butter, nonfat milk, protein powder and the barista recommended a shot of chocolate. AMAZING. I'm not allowed to bring food into the lab I work in, so I've spent the majority of the morning standing in the hall with that shake. Can't. Put. It. Down. If I could chop ice as finely as they do, I would make it at home.
Anyhoo, hopefully I'll get to organizing my brain so I can post about the trip. It was GREAT to have an entire weekend to visit with my extended family. We rarely get to do that. I wish we could all afford to do it more than once every 5 to 10 years. What are you gonna do?
