Ugh. It's that time of year again. The weather is changing unpredictably from chilly to warm and back to chilly, with gusts of wind and fresh pollen about. So, of course, I have a sinus infection. The really crappy part is that so does Snickers. I think. Or allergies. I am not 100% sure and neither is her vet. :(
But, back to me for now. I have approximately 10 days to get my documents to China so that my school there can apply for my visa permit. I finally have everything I need, as well as an appointment with the embassy tomorrow to get my one paper notarized. This is good. Having to work today was not. I needed to get these things done, but my throat feels like I have swallowed barb wire and it pains me to drink even water. Imagine how fun it was to have to be enthusiastic all day with my 3 yr. old kiddos - especially since one just returned today after being in India for months. I couldn't slack today. He had to know how great it was now. He had to have a great first day back. And he did.
I am home, picked up an antibiotic and nose spray at the pharmacy, and plan to try some hot tea in a bit. Maybe that will help. I ate dinner because I was hungry, but it was such a painful ordeal. I'm not sure what is worse: eating while in severe pain to swallow, or being forced to eat something horrid like liver. Oiy. Tough call. I'll even be brave enough to admit this little secret....I'm a big wuss when I am sick! I am such a momma's girl (even at 33) that, when I do not feel well, I immediately wish for my mom to be at my side. They seem to make being sick more bearable.
