Sorry I have been out of commission for the past few days. #3 had not been feeling well so I have spent a lot of time on the couch with her. I started to write a post titled "It hurts when I swallow" but I felt too bad to get past line 2. My throat suddenly started hurting. I have been dealing with this for a few weeks--my throat would hurt a little in the mornings, then my husband would complain about his hurting, then mine would hurt. Then yesterday out of the blue, it started hurting for no reason. It felt fine if I didn't swallow, but as soon as I did, it felt like a million HOT razor blades escalated down my throat. Not fun. I couldn't find any Zicam or any decent Zinc Lozenges, so I went to bed. Today, it still hurts. Since I felt fine otherwise, I purchased Ricola drop but that didn't help. I finally bought some more Zinc lozenges. Maybe I should've bought some Zicam because I don't feel well now. #3 was sick today (no idea whats wrong...sleepy, fussy at times...fever...could be teething) so I brought her home to Clint and went back to work then came home early so he could go to work. I ended up taking a 3 hour nap with her on the couch and woke up feeling like death. My head hurts and I feel tired. This CAN'T happen to me (getting something more than a sore throat) because we're going to San Angelo tomorrow to spend the weekend with #1 and #2. I want to eat at this GREAT Chinese restaurant. There's no decent restaurants around here, so going to this place is the highlight of my trip (besides seeing the girls). Besides runnign the other day, I haven't worked out all week. Like I said, I've been dealign with a "sick" baby for most of the week now I feel like crap. My intention was to workout tonight but that won't be happeneing unless the pain reliever I took kicks in. Oh well, I have 12 weeks from Sunday to get in GREAT shape for the marathon and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO looking forward to it!

Now on to the complaining. When did people stop being nice? When did society stop thinking about themselves and did things for others for a change? When did it turn into me, me, me, instead of you? Why is it that you can't get people to do things unless it benefits them? I will not get in to the full story here. If you want to know, ask, and I will tell you but I am not typing the whole thing here. But it comes down to this: People aren't willing to help others with weight loss if it's not going to benefit them. I think these type of people are ASSHOLES. I mean, it's one thing if you're asking me to do something that's totally an inconvience to paying for a babysitter and driving 28 miles to go to they gym with you. It's not going to happen. However, I WILL do my best to work with you. Maybe I will suggest we go during our lunch hour or something like that. But I am not going to flat out abandon someone that needs "help." Yet recently I see that people won't contribute to the successful weight loss of others unless it benefits THEM. And it's not like they're asked to do something really inconvienient either. Asshole.

That's all I have. I'm off to wash clothes! Oh, spell check isn't working and I have a bandage on my finger so you will find typos. Sorry.
