Being sick

So much for warding off the sickness. I started feeling really icky yesterday, and ended up the day stuffy and needing Nyquil to go to sleep. Woke up at 4:30 unable to breathe and wide awake, so I came downstairs and tried to sleep in the recliner. I figured I wouldn't wake up Craig and maybe being at an angle would help. Nope. No go. So around 5:45, I took more Nyquil and then crawled back into bed.

I did manage to get another 3 hours of sleep, but I'm just spent. It's not in my chest - thank god - but instead in my nose, eyes, and ears. No fever, which is a plus, but I have zero energy and just want to sleep. Alicia and Alex are both struggling with it, too. Alex's cough hasn't improved much, but he's got more energy at least. Alicia is supposed to have a scrimmage today, but who knows how that's going to go.

Blech. Enough with the whining. I'm going to go lie down.
