Y’all ? the past couple of days have been so mentally and physically DRAINING and FRUSTRATING that I’m pretty sure I should be in tears, but my head hurts and my blood pressure is low because I’m dehydrated because I still breastfeed my 2 year old and my throat hurts because I have an acute upper respiratory so swallowing liquids still hurts because I can’t get any real treatment because I’m still breastfeeding my 2 year old. ???insert the largest eye roll ever right here. And everywhere. Haha Yet here I am, still able to laugh at the ridiculousness that is my everyday life!! ? So grab your glass of w!ne and sit back and enjoy my struggles, because its story time ??
Let’s start at about 7am yesterday morning (11/21). It’s my husband’s 26th birthday! Yayyyyy! ? For once I don’t have class as the butt crack of morning (aka 8am); I have class at 10am. ? Wait, rewind a littleeee bit more: Saturday after 2 lovely homemade [email protected] by said husband, I woke up Sunday morning with what could only be one of 2 things, pressure in my ?head due to sinus issues or a hangover. Considering that I only had 2 margaritas while eating Chick-Fil-A after which I went straight to sleep even though it was like 5pm, I was super hesitant to deem this headache a hangover, although my husband thought it was pretty funny either way. ?? So Sunday I feel like crap all day. Head pounding. ? Stuffy. ? Getting light-headed if I’m on my feet too long. ?Random muscles aching. ? It was terrible, and naturally this carried over into Monday when I had class from 8-3 and Squalls had gymnastics at 6:15PM ? So the hubster and I took her to gymnastics, but I felt so crappy that I went out to the car and sat there and contemplated my life, because sleep was not coming my way like I had hoped. ??♀️??♀️ So I decided then that I’d take myself to the doctor in the morning because my husband’s birthday is Tuesday, we have to drive to my hometown Wednesday, the baby tour, I mean Thanksgiving, is Thursday, my birthday and several parties that we have to attend are Saturday, AND we have to drive back to KnoxVegas on Sunday. NOBODY has time to be sick with all of this traveling and being around people on their agenda!! Not to mention that Squally is constipated as all get out and only actually pooping every 4-5 days, but I’ll get to that! ?
So I’m up early because my wonderful, cosleeping 2 year old likes to punch and kick me in the face periodically throughout the night to make sure that I’m still there. So after being punched several times, I went and took my rightful place on the toilet where I was safe from hurt, harm, or danger. ? Haha. I got dressed and went to the doctor as a walk-in appointment and surprisingly got in and out of there in 30-45 minutes. Probably because I got there at sunrise. ? Haha. But they said that I probably had an acute upper respiratory infection that they couldn’t give me any real medications for because I made sure to inform them that I’m still breastfeeding and that my breastfeeding toddler is allergic to penicillins. ? So they prescribed me a steroidal nasal spray and lidocaine throat spray because my nasal passages were super inflamed and I would like to eat and drink without being in pain!
Feeling like I had accomplished something with my life, I went to Chick-Fil-A and got breakfast for the Squally Squad. My husband actually hates Chick-Fil-A… ? I KNOW.. who does that?? ??♀️ But fortunately, he does like their spicy chicken biscuits, which aren’t on their breakfast menu anymore, so the lovely wife that I am, I paid extra and waited 10 minutes for them to drop and cook a spicy chicken patty and put it on a biscuit for my stud muffin. I then happily returned home and woke up my sleeping family. Lariah woke up relatively happy and immediately took a hashbrown to crush, make a mess out of, and occasional take a bite of. Like men do, my husband took forever getting up. We had already finished eating before he finally woke up enough to eat his food. I’m sure it was cold, but hey, I tried!
Next, I went to class, came home for lunch, went back to class, and came back home again! I think I was home for good around 2:15pm, which is pretty dang good considering I only went to school at 10! I will dub that a very RARE vet school win! While I was gone, constipated Muffin dropped a very painful big one, so when I did come home for lunch, I called her pediatrician’s office to seek counsel on what to do next about her constipation and they scheduled us an appointment for the next day at 9:15 AM. When I got home for good, I told myself that I would deep clean our shower/tub thing as one of my husband’s birthday gifts. ??♀️?? (PASS NO JUDGMENT- haha) So Riah & I doused the bathtub & shower in cleaners and surprisingly she went down for a nap!! So I wash some clothes, fold up some diapers, and then I spent an hour and a half scrubbing and rinsing the tub. When I tell y’all that I am ASHAMED that I ever let my family clean themselves in this bathroom before I had done this THIS well, it looked spanking brand new it was so good! The white interior was shining and glistening! Mr. Clean himself was giving me a thumb up! And probably a thumb down too for not using his product, but whatever. ????
