Still Sick

Over the weekend I had a terrible headache that just would not go away. It probably didn't help that I barely slept at all Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. QT was up every half an hour to an hour crying because his nose was so stuffy and he was having a hard time breathing. Of course, cleaning out his nose is a huge feat. You just wish that kids would understand how much better they'll feel after you have to do something to them that doesn't feel so good. Anyway, in part because of lack of sleep and in part because of the weather pressure, I had a horrible headache. In desperation I took some Tylenol with coedine and boy did that make me sick. I spent much of Saturday running to the bathroom and being sick.

The fun part of Saturday was taking QT to Trainfest. He loved watching all the model trains and just keep saying "choo choo" over and over and over again. The not so fun part of Saturday was babysitting my two nieces that night. Maybe it was the headache and all the vomiting but everything they did seemed to annoy me. It's at times like that when I question my desire to have even one more child much less two or more.

At some point Sunday my headache went away and I started feeling much better. Then this morning it was back to throwing up and then throwing up breakfast. Right now I am just anxiously awaiting to see if lunch will stay down. I still haven't really gained any weight. I've lost around 20 pounds and will sometimes gain two back but then I lose it again right away.

I've done a pretty good job sticking to my meal planning, coupon clipping and grocery shopping despite this week's plan getting a little off because the husband and I went out to dinner one night and his work schedule changed so that he'll be gone more nights than normal. Here's the big plan for next week:

Saturday - Picnic chicken made in the crockpot
Sunday - Tuna parmesan noodle casserole
Monday - Pizza
Tuesday - Pork chops and apple slices made in the crockpot
Wednesday - Beer cheese soup
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Frozen prepared meal or perhaps pasta
Saturday - Fiesta meatloaf
