The Best Laid Plans

This was to be a weekend of fun events and fantastic workouts. We had the big bowling party tonight, a 35 mile hilly ride tomorrow with a potluck after wards and then The Shamrock 15k on Sunday. As I previously griped, I was already feeling pretty yucky at Wednesday's track w/o, then yesterday I had some major trouble at the pool. I finished all 3200 yards, but constantly coming up for air and not being able to take anything in due to throat snot did not make for a pretty swim. By the time the 6th graders finished whooping up on the teachers at the PTA basketball game last night, I knew I was done for.

Today I just feel like poop, so I'm calling this weekend a wash. Besides, look who joined me in my misery today...

Before, he just had his sock clutched in his right hand to comfort him....


...now he has a blanket. He's passed out cold. Poor kid.

My hope is he'll wake up feeling better and we can cuddle the weekend away.

Everybody feel better soon! The bathroom floor is a popular place to pass out. It's so cool and inviting when you have a fever...

Wishing you wellness!

Michael said...

Man you guys can't catch a break. Next week everyone will be well and healthy!!

Terri said...

Terrible! Hope you're all on the mend soon!

Jill said...

Awwww, poor kiddo!! Does he wake up easily if you pick him up and put him in his bed? I had one that you wouldn't touch if he passed out otherwise he'd be up for hours. Hope he, and you, feel much better soon. A weekend is NOT the time to be sick, save that to call in sick and stay home from work :).

Julie said...

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!!

The kiddo is better - HOORAY!!
Jill - nope - my kids have never been ones that you could move from place to place. He was in such pain just prior to falling asleep there that we knew it was best just to leave him. He woke up 30 minutes later and puked his guts out and then was on the mend.

I, on the other hand, am not getting better that fast :-(

sorry for the illness! The only good thing about your kids not feeling well is that they actually WANT to cuddle! Hope you get some good snuggles in!

Jen said...

Oh, man! That poor kid! I hope you're feeling better by now and that you can get back to normal life!
You and your comments always make me smile! Thanks!
