a little more today and A GIVEAWAY!

As for me..., nothing too exciting to report. I've been off the map for the last few days. You see...I somehow came down with Strep Throat AGAIN!  The throat pain started on Thursday, waking up on Friday feeling miserable!  I felt like I was swallowing razor blades. I mustered through Saturday...trying to nurse myself by gargling salt water and taking lots and lots of IBPROFIN!   It wasn't too fun for my babes!  I missed my boys first basketball game which was quite disappointing.  Missed the HOLLYDAY Christmas Party on Saturday Night!  So finally after little to no sleep Saturday night, I caved and visited the Minute Clinic promptly at 10 AM!  The sweet nurse, so kindly informed me that my throat was blazing red and I for the second time in 3 months had strep throat!  Wrote me a prescription for a 6 day Zpak of Azithromycin, normal doses of Ibprofin and Vitamin C. Then gargling a mix of Maalox and Benadryl every six hours! And who'd a thunk that...it REALLY works! I'm on my way to recovery.   I was actually quite amazed at how fast the Azithromycin kicked in!  Besides the pounding headache that these pills give me...I was feeling so much better by evening.  Craving a day of rest...but daddy was referring basketball ALL day...so mommy did her best to stay afloat and was so thankful for the drugs!  Why didn't I just go on Friday? Hopefully, I'll be back to myself and ready to go full speed on my excercising that was so rudely halted by that nasty sick bug.  I really really feel so strongly about loosing this weight and becoming a better person, I can't wait to get started...REALLY started! 

It's still a snowy mess around here.  But the sun is out which somehow makes it all better!  Enjoy your day people. When I get better at this blog thing, I'll post more photos to hopefully make it more interesting!  Thank you for taking the time to read about my little world.  I'd love to hear from you!  Leave me a comment if you stop in and say hello!
