Weekend update: 5/5/13

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. . .

And when it rains, it pours. . .

Originally, we were going to be headed to WI for the weekend to hang out with family and to do some repairs on the dock before putting it in the water.

Then, WI got about a foot of snow. . .

So, we changed out plans for a low key weekend at home. I had some blog stuff I wanted to work on, a couple of longer runs, teaching body pump, chasing Luke around, etc.

And then, we all got sick. Scott with a wicked cold, Luke has another ear infection and I have the worse strep throat I have ever had! I had strep a lot as a kid, but never this bad. . . one trip to Urgent Care on Saturday morning because I had been in tears most of the night before because it hurt so bad to swallow. . . 2 antibiotics, steroids, and pain medicine. . .and I am just now starting to feel a little better. My weekend diet has consisted of ice cream milkshakes and popsicles. And my exercise was from the couch to the bed. And this was the view for most of the weekend – Abby is such good couch company.


Thankfully, with a sunny 60 degree day here in MN today, we were able to take a family walk to the park –> the highlight of my weekend.


Anyway, not more more to share from our weekend. . . hope yours was better!! Smile 

**We did make it to the grocery store. . . and I am hoping to have an updated post on the grocery challenge tomorrow. Smile

      thank you!! Thankfully Luke doesn’t seem too affected by his ears and Scott is just super stuffed – annoying but not taking all his energy like this strep throat of mine!

  2. It sounds like your throat feels TERRIBLE! I am so sorry all of you got so sick. Hopefully in the next day or two all of you will be feeling closer to 100%.

    Oh no!! Strep throat is the worst 🙁 I’m glad you weren’t in Wisconsin when you got sick. That would’ve been an awful drive home!

      me too! It was hard enough just to sit on the couch, I can’t imagine being stuck in a car.
