I have a sore throat. It’s my only symptom, but it is annoying. I can’t sleep with a sore throat. Try as I may, as soon as I drift off, the scratchiness gets very bad and I wake up gagging. So last night I only got about three hours of sleep. Pair that with the previous night, in which I had also only gotten three hours of sleep (because the kids kept waking me up), and when I rolled out of bed this morning I was so tired, I felt nauseous and dizzy. I decided to call out today, instead of battle a long commute when I felt so awful.
So I got up, got the kids dressed, dropped them off at the sitter and came back home. I ate some breakfast and crawled back into bed shortly after 9 am. I tossed and turned for awhile. The last time I looked at the clock, it said 10:15. Shortly thereafter I fell asleep. When I woke up I was very foggy. I rolled over and grabbed my phone. It read 3:41!!! How was that possible?!? I had lost almost my complete day! I had told the sitter I would pick the kids up at 4, but I let her know that wasn’t going to happen. I got dressed, grabbed a quick bite to eat, and headed to the store before picking them up.
We went to the beach for a little while, came home, had dinner, and then took baths. It’s going to be an early bedtime for mommy tonight. Here’s praying that everyone sleeps!
