Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

Well I'm falling behind again. I'm still battling this nasty cold, so I blame it all on that! Being sick and pregnant at the same time really stinks. I can't take the same meds that I'm used to, and my immune system is already preoccupied. Bugger..

Anywho.. back to the photos. Thursday morning I wanted to try the new Fruit & Maple Oatmeal at McDonald's. The commercials and ads made it look so good.

Example:

Well this is what it really looked like.. Yuck. I tried it anyway, and I was not impressed, I didn't finish it.

Friday I stayed home sick from work. My cold has quickly progressed from a regular cold, to a mucus-filled cough, combined with a stuffed up nose, sore throat, and headache. In less than 24 hours, I have already finished off half a box of Kleenex.

Today, Saturday, I have been welcomed with some much needed sunshine!! It has been weeks since I have seen blue skies or the sun in Oregon. So beautiful. I have my back door open, letting in as much of this as I can. I'm hoping to soak up as much Vitamin D as possible to help battle this nasty cold.

Yikes! I was going to try the oatmeal today and now have no urge to.

Sucks that you're sick! I've never had kids so I'm constantly learning from others about the reality of pregnancy and parenthood. Things I just don't think about.

Of course you can't take regular cold medicine. Of course your immune system is busy elsewhere. Duhhh. Totally wouldn't have thought of this on my own.

My sister in law is pregnant too. She was sick with a month long cold, she's at the end of her pregnancy so she's cranky and uncomfortable, and they moved. Yikes!

And the cereal looks ucky. Thanks for the tip, because I would have been sold on that box.
