I've been cooped up in the house for the last few days, because Anissa and I have been battling a bit of a cold.Anissa seems to be over it but now I have gotten it. It isn't a bad cold, but feeling run down isn't how I like to feel. I know we got it from one of DH's friend's kids. They had invited us over for a pot luck last friday. Their 5 year old wanted to hold Anissa, and made a big fuss when we told him she was to big. So DH tried sitting her on his lap. DH apparently did not see this, but I sure did. He covered his mouth to cough(good boy), but this is where I shake my head. Right after he goes in to give her a kiss on the lips.I'm pretty sure this is where we got the germs from ugh! I know kids spread germs, but I prefer not this way. I've had conversations with his mother about kissing on the lips. DH and I don't kiss Anissa on the lips, it is always on the cheek, forehead, nose, but never on the lips intentionally. DH's family does do this, but mine does, and I'm weirded out by it in all honesty. I think it is mainly because my family were big huge smokers and then they would come in with their stinky smoke breath(yes I was the only non smoker in my family), but also I don't want her catching cold sores like I did when I was a kid(I am certain I got them because of this weird tradition). So we have our reasons.

So yesterday I just felt the need to just get out despite my slight sniffles. I went to the mall with out the baby in tow. I ended up getting 2 pairs of jeans, my pre-pregnancy jeans still do not fit. They are just a tad bit too tight. I want to start drinking tea, but just never really liked it. I sniffed out a lot of tea. I love the smells of some, but once it is made, I just don't taste what I smell and I'm disappointed. I had one made so I can try it while I shop, and I still didn't quite like it. So I got some liquid stevia to try, and it did make it a lot better. So I went back and got some tea to make at home. I then got some cream to attack my age spots on my face, some face masks, oh and some wonderful smelling bath melts from Lush. I got a quite a bit of pampering me stuff, I'm proud, I did not get one thing for the baby, which seems to be the norm lately. It could have been tied into how I've been feeling this past week with being sick.

I think on monday I will check out the gym with a babysitting service, so I can work on getting my mojo back.
