So, as I think I mentioned, Joe has pneumonia. He saw our family doctor yesterday and was told that it seems to be working it's way out and he just needs a strong OTC cough medicine, so I picked him some up today. He doesn't seem to feel as bad BUT now he's suffering with a bad gout flare-up in his foot making it hard for him to move. He's a baby when he's sick or in pain and it's just...annoying.
Chloe started complaining about not feeling well today. Of course, neither Joe nor I believed her because she CONSTANTLY LIES about either feeling sick or needing to throw up. I'm not exaggerating. Ever since she threw up recently with the flu, she tries to claim sickness every time she wants to get out of something or get attention. Mostly, we ignore her and have tried several times to explain that lying about feeling sick is not okay because when she really is sick no one will believe her. Much like the boy who cried wolf.
Anyway, today she interrupted me in the bathroom to use the bathroom- which she didn't. Then a few minutes later she comes in and calmly says she needs to throw up. I kicked her out as she has lied about this in the past a million times... and then she throws up in the hall. So, okay, I'm pissed at both of us but whatever. Send her off to bed. A few hours later I go to check on her, she's sitting in her room with the light on. I asked why she wasn't asleep. She said something about needing to go potty but doesn't actually make any effort to leave her bed to GO potty. A few minutes later, I hear her throwing up again, this time in the middle of her room. WTF. Then again, she just casually walked to the toilet and spit a little into it.
I'm so beyond frustrated with the sickness in this house. I am Lysoling the ish out of everything before I go to bed.
Anyway... my diet/exercise has been non-existant this week but I'm okay with that. I've been counting calories loosely with a plan to start fresh on Monday. I need to figure out a style of eating and I just need to committ. Some days I count calories, other days I try to restrict carbs, some days I don't pay any attention at all, and it's a major issue. I'm not losing weight and I'm just confused about how I should be eating- even though I KNOW, logically, how to lose weight. I'm throwing myself 110% into this program with work since I'm PAYING for it, and it starts Tuesday. Might as well begin a day early. So Monday is a new beginning and the next few days I'm not going to go crazy but I'll probably eat a bit more than I will be starting Monday.
Anyway, I'm off to bed early! tomorrow is finally friday...been a long week. night night all!
