Hope everyone is having a wonderful Valentine's Day! I am personally stuck on the couch, sick as a dog. Pretty sure I've got strep or tonsillitis and will be headed to the doctor tomorrow since I have had a sore throat and can barely swallow since Thursday. The good news, I guess, is that I haven't had a fever since Friday. Right?
I have been alternating gargling apple cider vinegar, warm salt water and coconut oil to treat it and while I can turn my neck without excruciating pain, my glands in my neck are still pretty swollen and I have been pretty much living off of garlic broth and chicken noodle soup. Happy Valentine's Day to me!
We were supposed to go visit my mom this weekend and finally do Christmas but because I'm so sick, we opted to stay home. She actually told me to stay away so she doesn't get sick. With her health the way it is, I don't blame her one bit.
Alan and I didn't do anything for each other this year, which is totally fine - I'm horrible at being creative for these types of holidays anyway. Although, he did tell me that his gift to me is that he will run a 5k with me this year. Personally, I think that that's a pretty awesome gift. So, while I'm finally finishing The Tudors on Netflix today (which I started watching while on maternity leave with Ewan!), I'll be looking up 5k races.
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
