Caffeine STAT!!

It's a rainy Tuesday morning (big surprise) and I am sitting here on the computer after taking Michael to school on only 2 hours of sleep. Me, not Michael. Why? Well, I am still sick. Yesterday being a holiday and all, no doctor.

I was watching TV last night around 9:30 when I had a coughing fit - coughed till I vomited. TMI, sorry. I felt horrible. Finally went to bed around 11:30 after taking some Nyquil and then tossed and turned for over an hour because every position had me coughing AND my mind was just spinning. Got up, took some Melatonin which, on top of the Nyquil, should have put me in a coma.

It didn't.

I dozed, I woke, I dozed, I woke. Then Frank came to bed with issues of his own and that had me up for a while. When the alarm went off at 6:15, I wanted to cry. I got up, got Michael up and at 7:00, went to get Frank up. He normally does the morning carpool thing.

Except for today.

Seriously, he is STILL in there snoozing it up at 8:15! He doesn't have work today (Thank you, again, Mother Nature) and so he was TIRED. REALLY???? I'm sick AND tired but I still managed to get out of the damn bed when I was supposed to! This is so NOT what I needed this week. We had a discussion yesterday about my stress level and he's like "Just tell me what you need and I'll do it?" REALLY? How about getting up and driving our son to school so that I don't have to go out in the rain WHILE I'M SICK??? THAT might help!

I'm yelling, I'm sorry. I'm very tired and very cranky and there is so much to do before relatives start arriving and I just want to cry.

But first, I'm going to have a really tall glass of soda...

Go back to bed for a while yourself. You will be no good to anyone if you get sicker.
