A Sick Weekend

Long weekend Yay! Or so I thought. Matt and I woke up with colds this weekend and I spent the weekend feeling less than good. Sick and pregnant is pretty much the worst. I'm still feeling crummy today, but I still have to go to work. That is what I get for being the income for my household. Matt used to go to work sick all the time and I thought he was crazy. I still think that actually. I wish I was home in bed. Alas that I have not yet accrued any sick days. Someday maybe, someday.

Last Friday was date night with the sisters. Marie, Sarah, Myself, and Krista took our guys out on a date. We went to Olive Garden for dinner. I brought Nicoley O with me because I had missed her all day and didn't want to be away from her for the night two. It was fun to have a night out, but I was nauseated the whole time and did not get to enjoy my dinner very much. Everyone was suppose to head over to the dollar theater to watch Eclipse, but I opted out because I was just feeling crummy. No point in going to a movie just to feel miserable the whole time. I would rather go and relax. So, we headed over to Mom and Dad Kimball's and hung out with them for a little while.

Saturday was Kristy's bridal shower. I wish that I had been more help for the shower, but I have been working and sick, so I really just brought the drinks. Anne and Momma Kimball did a great job! The food was brunchy and delicious. Kristi got some good kitchen gifts and seemed to have a good time.

After the shower, I raced up to Saratoga Springs for Jakers' baptism. I can't believe my nieces and nephews are getting so old! The baptism was good, but it was crowded! There were like 15 kids getting baptised that day and it was a game of rotating rooms the whole time. One room was too crowded and super hot and not fun.

I came home after the baptism to my daughter and wonderful husband. I love spending time with them more than anyone else! Matt, being the kind husband that he is bought me a mattress pad in hopes that it would help me sleep at night. It is this gel like pad that is super soft. But, after sleeping on it for a night and a half, I was done. That thing hurt my back like nothing else! Halfway through the second night, I was in so much pain I just left the bed and went downstairs to sleep on the love sac. It was a sweet thought, but that thing is going back to the store.

Sunday was a relaxy day, mostly because both Matt and I are sick. Then, on Monday, we traveled up to Riverton to go to their Walmart. They were the closest Walmart with a particular item that Matt wanted to finally get us the internet. The days of mooching off our neighbors wireless are over, we finally have our own internet!

We stopped at Ikea on our way back because I had never been there before. It was interesting how you are forced to walk along a path and they purposefully make you lost in that store. Nicole was good the whole time, which is really what matters most. One thing I have discovered about Ikea, all the furniture is made for small people. The couches, tables, chairs, everything is really short and small. I felt like a giant in a store for midgets.

Later in the day, we headed over to Marie's so that I could take some preggo pics of her. I am really not a photographer and don't know how to pose people. I hope that some of the pics turn out for her. We had to leave as soon as the picture taking was done because I felt terrible with allergies and being sick. I feel like my allergies are worse everytime I go over to Marie's house. I am not a fan of cats, but Nicole loves to got over to Mee Mee's and chase the cats.

I'm at work today and feeling crummy, but at least it is a short week.

Sunday you spent with us. But no mention. I see how it is.

Sorry you're sick on top of being pregnant sick, too. I hope it passes quickly.

Marie said...

These blog posts are sounding a lot like your blog posts from your first pregnancy...."Sick again"

I've still never been to Ikea. I drive past it everyday, but I've never had a reason to go in. Maybe I'll go there to feel like a giant.

Thanks for taking the pics of me and my belly. Look for them on my blog.

Nice job on the prego pics. You are becoming a good photographer. I'm sorry that you are sick. Hopefully it will pass soon.
