UnMotivated Monday

[ Photo courtesy of my mom ]

The leaves have finally started changing colors and falling here. The view outside my “sun room” window where my desk is located is pretty nice. There was actually a big pile of crunchy leaves next to the car. I can’t wait until I’m feeling 100% and can get out more.

My cough was getting really bad Sunday night. Hacking. To the point of losing my stomach contents. Twice. No sleep until 3 in the morning. I should’ve thought of taking Nyquil sooner, but I am not used to taking meds since I try to avoid them as much as possible unless they are really necessary.

Monday I was awake for only about two hours before I slept for three more. The cough seemed getting better until late into the night when it wanted to take the form of a hack attack again.

It was supposed to be my “motivated Monday,” but I’m seriously lacking in motivation since I’m short on energy and brain power. I haven’t even been reading blogs! That’s really unlike me, which just goes to show how unwell I must be right now. I told myself I have to be better by Christmas Eve. By the way, I know how lame it is to be whining about a measly little cough and cold, but I don’t have anything else going on right now.

Cady seems to have a tiny bit of sniffles again and sometimes has a runny nose. Her appetite has been pretty big the last couple of days, so she can’t be feeling too bad. My parents just got her a toy shopping cart with pretend groceries, and she has been having a blast with that at their house.

She also has this new habit of dragging her blanky around. Very cute. The standard baby thing to do I suppose. I guess it just comes naturally because she hasn’t seen anyone else, even other kids, doing this.

We stayed up late to watch the lunar eclipse. We couldn’t see it at first because of the clouds, but when they parted, there it was. My husband’s reaction. “…It’s just the moon?.. Well, that was anticlimactic… I was expecting a little more…”

He makes me laugh… which right now also makes me cough 🙂
