I've been on the couch since last Thursday. Only moving when absolutely necessary. Like to go to the Dr. or to the bathroom or to roll over and groan for Matthew to bring me more TheraFlu. I feel like I've been run over by a truck and it SUCKS! I haven't felt this yucky in years. Poor Megan got herself dressed Friday morning and packed her own lunch. When my Mom showed up to drive her to school, I hadn't even made her any breakfast! She took a granola bar in the car. Every time I tried to stand up and function I would get the shakes and throw up. My body hurt, my head hurt, my throat hurt, and I could NOT get warm. I had on flannel pjs under my sweats and still had goosebumps! I was dead to the world all weekend. I think I slept almost 24 hours straight. Matt said he was a little scared, he had never seen me so sick. Thank goodness for an amazingly capable and helpful husband and awesome grandparents.
I am attempting to put one foot in front of the other now. SURVIVE. We move on Saturday. And I am WAY behind on Haute Tots orders since I've been out of commission for the past week. So...I've had to make some sad decisions. I pulled out of the Glass Slipper Holiday Boutique that's happening next week. I just couldn't see myself getting done everything I wanted to have ready, AND move, AND feel like crap! As much as I wanted to make it work, it just wasn't happening. I also decided to shut down Haute Tots until after we are settled in our new home. I will be overjoyed just to complete the orders I already have before we move!
Sadly, the blog has suffered as well. I hope to get the first Thankful Thursday post up later today, bear with me! I'm trying. It's so frustrating to wake with the desire to tackle some of the things on my list only to find I have NO energy. It takes everything I can muster just to be Mom right now.
