Feeling Icky.

Sauerkraut, Pork Meatballs (quite yummy),
Rye Dinner Rolls, and Mashed Potatoes

Two nights ago my husband and I realized that all of our 'On Demand' episodes of the show "Entourage" would be expiring today.  We had about 10 left to watch so we had a marathon that night and stayed up until 1:30.  So since my beautiful little toddler is my never-failing alarm clock, I was up yesterday morning bright and early, feeling exhausted.  I ended up letting her watch cartoons most of the morning so I could get away with laying on the couch (I only felt slightly bad about my lazy parenting decisions).  During her nap, to my surprise, I was still exhausted enough to sleep through the whole 2 hours.  I woke up with a terrible sore throat, headache, and general overall icky feeling.  Since I was able to soothe the sore throat with a lot of hard candies, I decided it couldn't be strep and was more likely a cold caught from my little adorable alarm clock.

So that was yesterday...and I felt like that all afternoon (all the way up until midnight.  I hadn't planned on staying up until midnight, but after an exciting finale to the series we were watching the night before, we both got a second wind around 10:30).  So here I am again, very very tired and thoroughly excited for the toddler's nap time.  I'm also really gross and desperately in need of a shower. My house is disgusting and desperately in need of a cleaning.  And my book was neglected yesterday so I'm 2 chapters behind in the editing...which makes 4 chapters for today if I want to catch up quickly, or 3 today and 3 tomorrow (doing math while sick...impressive, right?).

It's almost 11:30 now, and I'm feeling a little better...the ibuprofen I took an hour ago is finally kicking in.  I'm trying to talk myself out of napping during her lunch.  Instead, my hope is that I'll shower, clean, then head over to Barnes N Noble for some more editing.

For now though...it's time for sauerkraut, pork, and mashed potatoes!  I think sauerkraut smells disgusting so hopefully it brings me luck this year, because it's the first time I'm ever trying it (I really want the luck this year!).


Strangely enough, I'm feeling much better, more awake and alert, and the sauerkraut was actually kind of tasty....so here's to a VERY lucky 2013!!!
