I finally got myself to the doctor to see what was up with my horrible cough and just seemingly everlasting sickness. She diagnosed me with sinusitis and pneumonia and prescribed me antibiotics and a cough syrup (basically, vicodin in liquid form). She offered to write me a doctor's note to excuse me from work tomorrow, but I already have the day off because our new sofa is being delivered, so I passed. However, I can't do cardio exercise or do anything too strenuous until my breathing is back to normal.
I've started counting calories again on the advice of Stacy and Bre, and am still trying to do limited carbs and sugars. Today was alright... I had a lot of coffee because I've been so tired. The coughing has been interferring with my sleep. Last night I took three of Joe's prescription sleeping pills and actually slept quite well with minimal coughing, but I was still sleepy all day.
Our new sofa is arriving tomorrow morning so Joe and I burnt our old one in the yard (yes, we live in the woods, we burn most of our trash lol)... it was kinda fun. I took some photos. :-D I loved my sofa but it was definitely time for an upgrade! Right now I'm sitting on the floor on the cushions we kept (we'll throw them out tomorrow). I've been using Pinterest pretty actively this evening and I think I decided on a tattoo to get in honor of Spencer! :)
Anyway... the vicodin meds didn't make me sleepy at all, nor did they help with my cough, so I guess I need to take some more. ;)
Happy Monday all....
