I am NOT having a good day. I woke up this morning with a terrible
cold. My whole body aches. Even the soles of my feet hurt as I stepped out of bed. I slowly made my way to the shower to stand under the warm spray of water. I felt slightly better until I went to get my daughter out of bed. My little girl was soaking wet and so were her sheets (so much for buying Target brand diapers). So, I had to get her cleaned up and change the sheets. Next, I went downstairs and was greeted by a pile of dirty dishes in the sink. I always wash my dinner dishes in the morning because my nightime routine is filled with other wife & mommy duties. That being the case, I don't know why I was so annoyed at the sight of them this morning. Maybe because they seemed to have multiplied overnight! Instead of a family of 4 you would have thought that a family of 14 ate dinner at my house! So, I sucked it up and proceeded to wash the dishes while my daughter sat on the couch with her sippy cup and watched Kai Lan.
Just the simple act of washing dishes knocked me out. Man, this cold stinks! What did I expect? My daughter has a cold also and hasn't learned to cover her mouth when she coughs or sneezes. I am usually in the path of those coughs and sneezes and the recipient of the germs that go along with them. So, add that to the fact that I shared an Italian ice with her yesterday , I was bound to get sick.
Exhausted from the dishes, I went to relax on the couch for a few minutes....where I proceeded to split open my pants. (I guess I shouldn't have eaten that ice yesterday!). Well, on a positive note at least it happened while I was still at home instead of at the office. Now that would have been embarrassing!
Hope all of you are having a better day than me. I can't wait to get back in bed tonight.
