Just a "Hello, I'm Still Alive" Kind of Post

I feel like a lot of my post lately have been catch up/rapid fire kinds of posts and this one is no different.  Actually, this one probably IS different.  It'll probably be shorter and without general purpose.  The purpose in my mind is just to say "hi" to the blog world - I'm still here.  It has been a rough past few weeks!

My girlfriends and I had a FABULOUS beach vacay that was just so refreshing and much needed.  Unfortunately, I came home to house full of sickies and quickly contracted the ickies myself, which has not been so great.  I do think I'm *finally* improving, but the icky sickies haven't left for good and so that's leaving me pretty whiny/bitchy/grumpy.  

Funny story... this morning, I said to the husband, "Well, great, another weekend will be totally shot and ruined by me being sick."  To which my sweet husband replied, "Now, what would you say to your daughter if she said something like that?"  I really hate when he uses my own psychology talk on me...I knew exactly where this was going, so I just rolled my eyes at him.  He then said.. "You know.. you would say, well, with that kind of attitude, it probably will.  You can't control everything that happens around you, but you can control how you handle it."

UGH.  Do I really say stuff like that?  Yeah, yeah, I do, and I believe it, but after 2 weeks of this crap, I just wasn't buying it.  I AM trying to take some of my own medicine though and remain optimistic and just carry on.  I'm at work today and am feeling remarkably more functional.  In a few hours, I get to go watch Audrey at her swim camp's talent show.  So hey, things could be worse.  I'll probably even wrap up my day with a bowl of ice cream... who am I kidding?  Make it 2.

Talk to you soon, bloggy land.  Stay healthy!!

Ugh! Summer colds are the worst, I was sick last month and it latest over a week... of course, both kids had it, too! And my daughter's asthma acted up with it... oh, and both kids had ear infections at the end of their colds. Such a fun time it was... NOT! Being pg and sick is a PITA, too! Hope you feel better soon!
