I Almost Made It

Summer is ending for us in 3 days.  We have had a great summer and just like everyone else, I feel like it flew by.  It really does feel like Kamryn got out of school last week instead of almost 3 months ago.

One of my biggest fears of the summer is the dreaded summer cold.  It always feels worse in the summer.  Late yesterday afternoon, I started to feel that unmistakeable feeling in my throat that signals the start of a cold.  It’s been so hot lately, though, that I thought maybe I would just sweat it out.

I have been burning the candle at both ends for about the last week so I went to bed early last night and slept like a champ.  However, when Rory came in this morning at 6:30, I knew I was in trouble.  I had just had 9 1/2 hours of sleep with only one wake up and I was still exhausted.  In fact, when Ryan got up at 8:00, I was falling back asleep on the couch.

I eventually got up and went out and laid by the pool while Ryan and the kids swam.  I was sweating profusely and dipped in the pool to cool off which resulted in me getting the chills so I got back on my chair in the sun to warm up.  After about an hour, I had had enough and went back inside, ate some lunch and fell asleep on the couch.

The rest of the day I held down the couch and watched a movie.  I’ll be spending the rest of the night with my two good friends:
