I am totally sick. I am coughing, sneezy, and stuffed up. My ears are so plugged that I really wouldn't be surprised if spiders crawled out of them, and gave me the finger. My teeth hurt. I am very tired, and very whiny. I kind of worry that Ryan is going to smother me with a pillow so he doesn't have to listen to my bitching and hocking any more. Only kind of worry because the other part of me thinks at least then I could sleep.
I have tried EVERYTHING. Sudafed. The Sudafed you can only get behind the counter after being strip searched. Mucinex. DayQuil. None of them really touched my symptoms, but some made me tingly enough that I didn't care. I have even tried irrigating my sinuses, something I said I would never, ever do. I didn't care how people swear by it, or if it makes them see unicorns and fairies, I thought it was gross. When I finally did it? It was gross. And it didn't work.
This afternoon, when Ryan got home, I was just about at the end of my rope. Meg hadn't napped, the cats were fighting, and it was raining. I was just about to give up when I noticed the sun was coming out. It was still pouring, but the sun was out. I yelled to Ryan, he scooped up Meg, and we went outside.Yep, Meg's first rainbow. And, you can't really see it, but it was a double rainbow. There was a double rainbow on the day that Ryan and I were married. Perfect.
I guess life isn't so bad. Of course, that could be the pharmaceuticals in my system talking.
