I know, I know. I need to blog. I still have to talk about Carter's "birthday."
I'll do that once I have the energy to get up and get my camera and download the pictures.
For the time being I'll just have Bo do everything for me because i have the worst cold EVER.
Seriously.
You know those cold/flu medicine commercials where the actors are always over-exaggerating their symptoms. They've got there box of tissues next to them, they are way too stuffy, and you just think, "c'mon! No one is that bad!"
That's what I've got. I've got it so bad, that now I think, "wow, they really nailed it. Those are some AMAZING actors." No joke. As I'm typing, I'm having to breath out my mouth because my nose is so stuffed. My throat hurts to swallow. I keep having flashes between hot and cold, although I am getting a little better about that. I also have those darn aches. The achy legs, the ankles, the fingers, you know.
The worst part? All I get to take is Tylenol. Not cool. Not cool at all. And with my hips spreading because I'm in that last month, those aches make it so I can't sleep on them. That means I had to sleep part of last night SITTING UP in the recliner, propped by pillows, because that's the only position that wasn't painful.
I'm done. I'm done being sick, I'm done being pregnant. I'm like 36 and half weeks. That's good enough. Statistically he should be pretty healthy right now.
At least Bo has been around to pretty much take over both parental roles.

*Funny side story, Bo had a class for a couple of hours this morning. I was trying to talk to the kids, when right in the middle of talking to them, in a really husky voice I might add, I had to cough. Immediately after coughing I lost my voice. So here I am, in the middle of a conversation with my kids, and suddenly I can't talk. You should have seen Meg's face. She was so confused. Carter recognized what was happening and ran out of the room calling "You lost your voice! I don't want to be in the same room with you and get sick too!" I thought it was amusing. Luckily I got my voice back like 10 minutes later.
