SICK of being sick...

My "stomach thing" came back this weekend...with a vengence. I had a 10 mile race on Saturday morning, and I felt pretty good. I ran well, got home, took a shower, and then it just hit me all of a sudden. I was sick the rest of the day. Clint had planned a date for us to take me out for my birthday. I didn't want to miss out, so we still decided to go. We got massages (which was nice because I just fell asleep for an hour), and went to dinner at Rickenbacker's in Ogden. If you've never been there, you should go! It's a little pricey, but very nice, and great food. We got there at about 5, so we both got the early bird special (cause we're CHEAP)! It was nice, but the food didn't stay with me for very long. We had planned on going to a movie, too, but I just felt too lousy, so we decided to call it a night and go home. I felt so bad about being such a party pooper (no pun intended).
I went home and crashed at 9:00.
Clint gave me a Wii for my birthday. It's more like he gave the kids a Wii for my birthday. They played it all day yesterday.
The thing I like the most about my birthday present is now I have some new leverage to get the kids to be good.

Then, today, I woke up with a sore throat and I've lost my voice.
Seriously, people, what is up?!!!
I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired.
My sister called me this morning to tell me happy birthday and pretty much ordered me to go the the doctor.
Have I mentioned I HATE going to the doctor. It just feels like such a waste to go spend 2 hours sitting in a waiting room and then spend 5 mintues with a doctor who doesn't listen to you, anyway, and tells you that it's probably just a virus and go home and get some rest. Hello, I don't need a medical degree to figure that out by myself.
I'm not Bitter...

So, I'm sure your sick of hearing me complain.
I did have a pretty good family came over for cake and icecream, and it's always nice to visit.

Here's hoping this week gets better!

Happy Birthday! And I sure hope you are feeling better. It stinks to be sick, especially for your birthday. Congrats also on the run. I am so totally jealous it is not even funny. Maybe someday I'll be in that good of shape...

Happy Birthday Sunday! What a pain to be sick! Sounds like a fun present, my kids would love a wii. My mother in law once gave me portable kid craft tables for the car, for my birthday. I think a wii would have been more fun! Congratulations on the run. One day I'll run again. I will, I will! :)

to Liz: Happy Birthday tomorrow! I hope turning 30 doesn't kick your butt as much as it did me!

to Motherboard: 1 day after childbirth and you're already on the running bandwagon! Wow--you're motivated. I would love to run with you, when you've recouperated (is that spelled right?) from having babies.

Oh. I'm not THAT motivated... I don't want to go running today. My pain meds are too lovely to give up yet! :>
