By the time DH got home from the airport last night, I was pretty much a puddle on the couch. I guess I've come down with a cold (I thought it was allergies) which probably contributed to my total lack of composure yesterday afternoon...
DH convinced me to wait until tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon to go to the floor place with Nancy (the original friend, whose opinion I really want.) His point? "You're sick and you're pregnant and the guy said most floors could be had within a couple of days."
Basically, I should be able to find SOMETHING that will be "in stock" and at hand within 2-3 days, even though some less common floors might take a week. We can live with limiting our selection somewhat to keep the crazy, mildly ill, preggo woman from total collapse.
I'm a real phlegm-ball today.
: Sore throat, painful throat-clearing and coughing all night, sneezes and fatigue. Luckily, I don't feel too cruddy in my nose/ears this time, so I'm less worried about infection than with my two dreadful February colds. I hope Cory (my acupuncturist) can treat me for the cold and do the blood-building points. She tries not to do too many points at once for a pg lady.
I'm going to try to find someone who could cover for me at work tomorrow morning. It might not be necessary (let's hope for a quickly clearing cold!), and it might be hard to find anyone (since they scheduled me due to having trouble getting someone else in the first place), but I know it will be a relief not to worry about it (because of my cold) and I am sure I'll have more energy for the floor expedition if I don't work the first half of the day. Oof.
Wombat-- so sorry life is getting so stressful for you now.
I gave you my cold-fighting tips in your other thread about it. That is really tough about your dad. My grandma has Alzheimers (sp?), but she is living in a care facility now... She did well in assisted living until she fell and broke her hip, then required more care. Basically, she can't remember why she's being forced to do painful physical therapy, so she kind of gave up and is now confined to a wheelchair, mostly because she just won't do any exercises.
It is so hard, and so weird, to deal with someone who is the same person you grew up knowing and loving, but... well... not really them anymore...
We've got a cloudy/rainy morning today, but then things are supposed to get nice again here. I'm hoping for a nice pollen-clearing from the rain, then a lovely dry stretch to melt the mucus out of my head/throat/chest!
I'm going to concentrate on sending out every kind of blessing and goodness to everyone today. Maybe if we all do it, we'll all have better days today!
