Should have known...

With all the crap going on in my life right now, I should have known today would be no different than the last. But first, let me just tell you that I woke up yesterday feeling fine and then on my way to get my morning mocha, I had this urge to cough and to my surprise, I coughed up some yucky stuff. Then, I continued coughing, and continued coughing, and continued coughing and more and more yucky stuff. I couldn't believe that there was no build-up to this. There was no kind of "I'm not feeling so great" forewarning that something was coming up...nope! Just a cough and yucky stuff and I am sick. I have so much congestion in my chest and have coughed so much that it hurts to cough. I woke up in the middle of the night last night struggling to breath, I couldn't get any air in.

Which leads me to today. I woke up this morning feeling like - well, uh, you know. And I am in a bad mood because I feel like crap and I have to go to a training today and I am paying a nanny to watch Jovanna. How much am I paying, you ask? Oh, only $120 dollars! Much more than what I will make today. I had to do a nanny because Jovanna doesn't do so well in childcare settings. One-on-one works best for her but I had no other options. Oh and her dad told me he can't help because he fell out of a tree. Uh ha! That's what he said. He fell out of a tree. What were you doing in a tree, I asked. I was watching the sunrise or some crap like that. He is supposed to have Jovanna for his summer week with her beginning this weekend. Oh, and he missed his spring break week too for some other reason.

So, back to the day. So I feel like crap, I'm paying $120 for childcare today so I can go to a training I don't feel good enough to go to, and I climb into my car. It is raining. I can't remember the last time we had rain - it's been awhile. I turn on my wipers and... My driverside wiper blade goes flying off! It's broke. So, I am already leaving 1/2 hour late and will be arriving to the training late, but now I have to drive in the rain with no wiperblade. Yeah, that made my day.

Well...yuck! I'm sorry you're not feeling well. That's pretty crazy that you had no warning for the cold crap. It's hard enough to deal with daily life, let alone when your not felling well. I hope you get better quickly!
