Reintro Day 6

My eyes won't stop watering - literally tears streaming down my face. The coughing is horrible. The congestion is wicked. 

I have taken allergy medication, Mucinex DM, DayQuil, NyQuil...none of it works. None of it even helps a little bit.

Today I am exhausted. I got up at 4am because of the coughing. Mr. P. has to work all weekend so I didn't want to keep him up all night. I got up and tried to sleep sitting up on the couch (to keep my nose cleared up) and gave up. Spent almost 2 hours sitting at the computer playing mindless games and drinking hot apple juice.

Eventually went back to bed just before Mr. P. got up. Immediately started coughing.

When I got up, I wasn't particularly hungry...but I made some sweet potato Yukon Gold hash with salt, pepper and paprika. Then I ate half a white grape juice pop. The silicone molds I have are pretty big. Then I remembered it's DAIRY DAY!  I might make a cheese omelet for lunch. 

I unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher. Tossed a load of laundry much to do, but my head feels like it's going to explode so I prefer to just sit somewhere and be miserable vs. get up and do stuff and be extra miserable.

I noticed I am very burp-y the last two day. Not sure if it's from the La Croix sparkling water or  breathing thru my mouth and this damn cold.

Today also happens to be my little sweetpea's 5th birthday! I can't believe that tiny little baby girl is 5 years old. She's super smart, extra spunky and is (usually) the sweetest little - well not so little - girl. Her party was held at a small local chocolate place and the kids got to make their own candy.

I never got around to the cheese omelet. Wasn't really hungry and didn't have the energy to do it. I did eat 2 cheese sticks. 

Mr. Paisley went out and got us Freddy's for dinner. I had a triple steakburger with cheese (hold the bun and no condiments), we split a large order of fries (they're shoestring fries and they were extra salty so I only ate a few - I'm not a big fan of salt - even though I constantly buy fancy varieties) and since it's DAIRY DAY - we got vanilla frozen custard. It was delicious - probably would have been to die for if I could have actually tasted it. I also had half a can of La Croix with some apple juice.

So far so good - no tummy troubles. Thank God - I love cheese. And ice cream. And cheese...all kinds of cheese. Did I mention I love cheese?
