Too Much Fun?
Wow I really disappeared huh?
First of all your comments were all so sweet, thanks for all the congratulatory comments on our engagement! I was so excited to share that news with you guys and your comments all made me smile from ear to ear.
I enjoyed the last day of vacation on Saturday and then Sunday we were in the car alllll day I took pictures of my eats but really don’t feel like recapping 4 days worth of food. Sunday after 8 hours in the car we were exhausted, we stopped by Andrew’s aunts house to see his family. They were all so happy for us, his family is fabulous and I’m very lucky to feel loved and welcomed by them.
Once we returned from his Aunt’s house we unpacked a little and then crawled into bed I was passed out shortly after 9, driving (for 3 hours this time!) and sitting in the car was so draining. Unfortunately I woke up at 3 in the morning with the worst pain in both my ears and my throat was completely swollen. I had a feeling I had “swimmer’s ear”. I was thisclose to going to the ER but talked myself out of it by reasoning that by the time I was even treated by the ER my doctor’s office would be open and I could save myself the $275 bucks. I fell back to sleep around 5, then woke up at 6:30 in even more pain. My doctor’s office was closed since it was Memorial day but the walk-in clinic they are affiliated with opened at 8. I woke Andrew up and asked him to go to the doctors with me, and we both sleepily walked out the door, I locked the apartment door behind me before I thought to check that Andrew had keys. Well he didn’t and we were locked out I started crying instantly I just wanted to get to the doctors and start feeling better. I called my dad and he saved the day with the extra key we gave them just last week. Talk about good timing, considering I’ve lived here for 2 years and I just thought to give my mom an extra key while we were on vacation. Weird.
So I get to the walk-in clinic and luckily got right in to see the doctor. Turns out I have a double ear infection and a throat infection! Are you kidding me?! It hurt so badly all day but luckily today I was feeling better and was able to go to work. I could not believe that I got so sick literally overnight but with the ear drops and antibiotics I’m already on my way to healthy.
The only thing that really sucked was because of the pain in my ears an throat I missed out on some delicious Memorial Day BBQing. Yesterday all I ate was a hot dog roll and an Italian Ice. Eating just wasn’t an option but that Italian Icee was better then any of the medicine I got for some instant relief. Everything I chewed hurt so I just gave up. Today although I was able to eat because of the throat infection everything either doesn’t have a taste at all or tastes down right disgusting. I forced myself to eat a little more because obviously I can’t exist solely on buns and Ice’s.
This morning for breakfast I had something I found on vacation!
I should have saved it until I could actually say whether or not it tasted good, but the texture heated up was easy enough to chew and swallow. Oh, the “that’s what she saids” I could throw into this post.
For lunch I went with something also easy to eat.
This tasted absolutely disgusting to me, I knew it was just because of being sick but both these items were waging war on my tastebuds. Ick. Even drinking water after this tasted wretched.
Later on I was obviously still hungry so I went with another soft bar.
This is an example of something that had absolutely no taste to me what-so-ever.
For dinner I was trying to think of things that were soft and tasted neutral enough to not inflict the nasty taste. I settled on eggs and cheesy toast.
I had 2 scrambled eggs, (another example of no taste), 1 sandwich thin with mozz cheese, and one with mexican blend. The mozz one had no taste but the mexican blend tasted disgusting. I took one bite and was literally chugging water to get rid of the taste.
I got some exciting mail today though! I won a giveaway on Erin’s blog, and was lucky enough to recieve some fun products from Doctor Kracker.
Just look at all the flavors of crackers I got!
I can’t wait to dig into these but want to save them until I can taste them! Thanks so much Erin for giving me the opportunity to try these products!
Well I’m off to get drops in my ears and chug some cough medicine. Have a great night!
Oh and just a note I haven’t really been commenting I have way too many blogs to catch up on but just know I’m reading and hope to get back to my usual commenting self soon.
