A weekend full of sweat and sneezes. That’s what this weekend was.
Last week, I got a baby cold. A baby cold is my own definition of a cold that doesn’t knock you on your butt but instead, just lingers and annoys you. I slept 9-10 hours most days last week and had a slight sore throat but was still functional. I ended up switching my early morning workouts to go after work so I could sleep in the extra hour in the mornings and it seemed to work. By Friday, I was feeling somewhat better so decided to hit up hot yoga.
It was just what I needed. A quiet night, alone with my thoughts. Saturday morning, I woke up at 7am-ish and caught up on the news for about an hour… and then fell asleep. Until noon. Apparently I needed more sleep? I got in a workout and then, Ann and Jen came over with their hubby’s to play pool and have a couple drinks.
It was a blast – we laughed and joked and laughed some more. We stayed up late into the night, the three of us trading stories while the boys played pool. Iggy was in heaven with all the attention.
Sunday I got up and met Jen at the gym. Somewhere between the time I went to sleep Saturday night and the time I got home from the gym, my baby cold took a turn for the worse. I swear, I almost itched my nose off. If it’s true what they say, that your heart skips a beat every time you sneeze, well then, my heart skipped a lot of beats yesterday!
While I probably should have taken a nap, I decided to get some blog work done and fold laundry Sunday morning.
My sisters Alicia and Heidi plus their families came over around 3pm. Carlos and my brother-in-law, Dan, went downstairs to play pool while my sisters and I played around with the kids at the kitchen table, putting up and tipping over dominoes.
It was a fun Sunday afternoon but by 6pm, I was done. My whole head felt like it was going to explode. My whole face itched including my eyes and nose. My nose was stuffed up but runny at the same time. I uploaded some photos, took some Benedryl and by 7pm had retired to the coutch.
I’m going to try to make it tot the gym this morning and to work but depending on how I feel, I may not stay the whole day at work. We’ll see how things go.
How was your weekend?
