Random Sherisms and Random Tunes


I'm sick. It sucks. My whole head is full of mucus. So, I can't think straight to save my life. I'm edgy and agitated.

And it's Spring Break. And my kids are making. me. CRAZY!

They spent the night last night at my Mom's house and had a huge slumber party with all their cousins. I went home at 7:00 and went straight to bed. It was nice. I woke up this smorning (yeah, I said smorning) at 9:30. Just in time for the kids to walk in the door.

Now they're making my crazy again. They seem to think that they need attention and entertainment.
I guess that's because I told them they can't watch TV because my massive mi-brain headache can't handle the noise.

I think part of it is my stupid hormones. I'm so out of whack. I'm so tired all the time.
Last time I went to my check up, my doc said he wouldn't up my dose on my meds because I haven't gained enough weight and my blood test is normal. I guess he's a hard facts kind of guy.
Finally, yesterday C said, why don't you just call your doctor already? I know, I'm a walking zombie all the time.

It's because I'm scared. I don't know why. I guess it because I'm scared he'll say no, you can't have more of the goods. Because that's what he told me last time.

I've had this whole conversation in my head:
And I want to say, "Well, I haven't gained more weight because I exercise like crazy 6 days a week, and I'm training for a half marathon."

Then he'll say, "Well, you're probably tired because you're exercising so much."
And then I'll say, "No, you just don't get it. Exercising is the ONLY thing keeping me alive. It's the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. If I didn't exercise, I would have NO energy."
And then I'll ask about my intense joint pain. And again, he'll blame it on the exercise. And again, I'll tell him that exercise is the only thing that makes my joints feel better, because the days that I don't exercise I can't get off the couch because I'm too tired and depressed and because my hips and knees are way too stiff.
At this point in the conversation, I'm hoping he'll say, "Yeah, you're right. You need a higher dosage. Here's your prescription."



Speaking of exercise, I have a whole "get up on my soap box and tell off the world" post about exercising going on in my brain. I just need to sit down and find the words.


Speaking of Spring break.....

I started out the week so good. On Monday, I cleaned my bathrooms. I KNOW! Are you as shocked and amazed as I am? Now, I can rest easy until July. Ahhhh.....

I also took the kids to the dollar theater on Monday. We saw the Tooth Fairy.

I love the Rock. He does a good job in all the Disney movies. Does he have a contract with Disney or something? Well anyway, I think KJ has a little crush on him. It's so cute.


Tuesday, we took the kids up to Park City to swim at my Mom's timeshare. It was totally blizzarding the whole day, and there was probably 3 feet of snow. It made for good pictures. Except I forgot my camera. So, I took a few pics with my phone, which I can't seem to get to upload on facebook. I must be doing something wrong, because I can never get my mobile uploads to work on facebook. But I digress.

It was freezing. So, we kept the little monkeys in the hot tub the whole time. This particular hotel has like 8 hot tubs. They are smart. But, KJ and TJ and uncle C and cousin P wanted to splash and swim so we banished them to the big cold pool. They lasted almost 20 minutes.

I'd say even though we only spent an hour "swimming" it was worth the drive.


Wednesday, my sister drove into town from OK. We've been spending a lot of time hanging out at Grandma's and letting the kids play. It's precious when the cousins get together, and to see how much they love each other.


So, today, my plan is to do nothing. Absolutely nothing. So far, it hasn't panned out for me so well. Since I told the kids they can't watch TV, they need something else to do. So, we just finished two games of clue, and made cookies.

And it's only 12:30. Maybe I should let them watch TV......

I need some of your exercise mojo. And I just cleaned my bathrooms today! Good luck on your chat with your doctor.

Annette Lyon said...

Crud. I know I should exercise more. I *used* to be religious about it.

Here's hoping the doctor listen to you.

Kristina P. said...

Uh, oh. It was my post about how running is stupid, isn't it. :)

I think you're awesome. And funny enough, I like the elliptical, which is like running, and is also dumb!

I've missed you! I feel like I haven't talked to you in forever. Hope you're coming to GNO next week!

Garden of Egan said...

I really need to get you to give me some exercise addiction tips.
I have signed up for a 10K oh, mercy it's gonna be ugly.

You need to be patient with yourself.

I love the snow/swimming pictures. I got cold just ooking at it!

wendy said...

I certainly hope they stayed in the hot tub....a pool with snow around it just looks "wrong"
Well, If I could...I would give you a bunch of MY WEIGHT, so the dr. would get off your back. I. AM. JUST. THAT.KIND. OF. FRIEND.

I can't even get out and walk, let alone run right now. The wind blows and blows HARD and it is cold. Has been a nasty week.

Mikki said...

Ok, swimming in the snow. Crazy!!! Brrrrrrrr! Kids are oblivious to the cold when there's a pool around though aren't they?
Good luck with the doc if you go. I'd say, maybe it's allergies, it's definitely allergy season around here, but I don't suppose you have much in bloom yet?

Cynthia said...

That's not 'Spring Break', it's 'Winter Chaos'. It DID make for cool pictures though.

I'm sorry your health isn't back 100% but I'm glad you're able to run again. Wish I could GIVE you some of my extra weight- I'm totally generous like that!

Those snow swimming pictures are pretty sweet!

I hope you are feeling better!
