Woke up this morning at 5:35...meant to get up at 4:30 and go to the gym. I set my alarm last night. I checked it and the music was on, good to go! Except I set it for 4:30 pm....Oops!
No biggie. I skipped the workout. Still a little bit of a cough, so sitting out one more day is probably good for me. DDS appointment, get the panoramic x-ray and a nice teeth cleaning. Gums are healthy, bones are healthy, still no cavities (ever!). Get to work, do stuff, come home.
Fix dinner and get the puppy ready to go to puppy training. She was VERY excited about going out so didn't listen very well. Son decided he wanted to go too. DH stayed home...he wasn't feeling well and the Boise State game was on. Almost there and I get a phone call...DH had cracked his tooth on dinner (we had chicken and I'm guessing they weren't as boneless as they were supposed to be!). I had to call the DDS (DH doesn't use phone books, he uses me! LOL!). DDS isn't home so I leave a message. Please call DH at this number (give him home #). So what does DDS do...he calls me! Grrr....
Get that taken care of and take Abby and son into puppy training. Boy behaves worse than the dog. He doesn't sit, he sprawls on the floor in front of class. As we're practicing the walk/sit, he's pointing out birds and pictures and I don't know what all. Ummmm...kinda busy here! See, puppy, sit, walk? Deep breath, move on. We then go to practice the "come" command. Abby attacks the smallest dog in class. I have to hold her down (trainer gave me some tips there) and it took her five minutes to chill! And she did it twice!!
Finally get to leave class but have to head to the pharmacy for pain pills for DH so he can make it through the night until he goes to see DDS tomorrow. As I'm driving, Abby decides that she needs to see things from my point of view...she decides to share my seat with me!! Luckily I was at the pharmacy and was able to pull into a parking spot without hitting anyone or anything! Dang dog!!
After I get home, I eat dinner and finish getting the kids ready for school. Daughter had told DH that she didn't need to read. She conveniently forgot that she is reading 20 minutes every night. Her teacher requires that they read 45 pages per week (I know, per week! I read that every day!!). Daughter has not been handing in her reading logs (that means F's in reading). When I saw that, I decided that 45 minutes a week was too low a goal and she wasn't working hard enough to reach it. Therefore, she would read 20 minutes per night, regardless of the number of pages she had read. Well...she got all teenagery on us when I told her she needed to read. Dh got "mad dad" on her cos she lied to him. She's going to be at 8:00 the rest of the week (tee hee). But, she read! And her reading log is filled out! And she's not getting an F this week! Looks like Mommy was right! Again!!
By the time everyone was in bed, there had been at least two fights (kids), a plugged toilet and crankiness beyond belief! So glad they're in bed and I get to go there soon.

Of course, I wasn't feeling well, so all I had on my list was sleep, read and eat! LOL! But, I did all of those things! I took two short naps, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I've read almost half of my newest book and I stayed in range on 7 of the 8 nutrients I track!
Overall, a very good day. The only thing that casts a pall over the day is the fact that I'm heading back to work tomorrow! LOL!
One more dose of meds and then off to bed early. Night all!

When I went to bed last night, I had a little bit of a cough. Not much and I slept pretty much through the night. This morning, I got up, got ready for work and even packed my gym bag. It turned out that I didn't use my gym bag...for two reasons. One, I had meetings scheduled too close together ALL day to be able to get out to the gym
The second reason is that my cough started getting worse. And, I started feeling a little light-headed. I checked the symptoms for the flu (cough, cold, chills (what's the difference btn cold and chills?), fatigue, body aches, runny nose). I have...a cough. A bone shaking, knee-deep cough (that's when you can feel the cough all the way to your knees!). But, it's enough. I told my boss that I was going to take tomorrow off to feel better. He told me to go home...NOW!!
So, here's the thing. I'm the one in my family that eats the most fruits and veggies. I'm the one who drinks water. I'm the one who exercises consistently. Why am I the one who's sick?? Not fair! Although, DH made a comment that since I don't feel well, he's not feeling well either. I piped up immediately and said "Nuh uh! I'm the sick one! You're taking care of me!" LOL!
I've got some Thera Flu (NASTY!) and it seems to be helping. My big plans for tomorrow are to move from my bed to the couch. Once there, I will sleep, read, watch TV and sleep some more...not necessarily in that order!
I'll be better by this time tomorrow. I will win this fight!!!

About two weeks ago, DH, son and I went to JC's for dinner. I had the bowtie pasta (which is delish!) and only ate half. I also ate the roasted garlic soup and a loaf of bread. Overall, that dinner cost me 1500 calories!
Tonight, DH was craving Skilletini, so we went back. But, it turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks! I had the angel hair iwth capers and artichokes (remind me to ask for no capers next time!), the house salad with dressing on the side and only one third of a loaf of bread. That meal cost me only 600 calories. Less than half! And, if it weren't for my late night snack of cookie and peanut butter, I would have been in calorie range today. Amazing, huh? Who'd a thunk it? LOL!

Today was the second to last game for my son's football team. We got there at 11:00, as directed by the coach. The coach didn't get there until almost 11:30, but we were there! Freezing...I really like football and I really like watching. I just wish football weather was a little warmer!
Every game, we've been making a banner for the boys to run through. BTW, I use the pronoun "we" loosely. By "we" I mean the other moms make it and I watch. I did hold a corner down once! LOL! Anyway, the banner today had each of the boys' name on it. The mom who made it took the time to make it really nice. The boys didn't destroy it when they ran through, so we might use it again next game.
Daughter has another dance tonight that she just HAD to go to! I took her and two of her friends to the dance at 7:00 and I have to go back at 10:00 to pick them up. Part of me just wants to go to bed. Oh well, that's what I get for being the nice mom and letting her go. She mentioned something about there being a dance every Saturday between now and Halloween! I don't think she can afford to go to that many dances. Maybe the Halloween one and that's it! She won't agree, but she's a teen. That means I win! LOL!
Getting close to time to get the dancing queen. Later all!
