Run-down-itis Strikes Again

Note: this was supposed to go up last night, but my WordPress App seems to be having an issue with the Publish feature. Again. So it’s late. On the bright side, you just received two posts from me in one afternoon! You lucky, lucky kids.

Thanks to all of my irresponsible weekend shenanigans, I’ve been hit with a douse of run-down-itis. I think the last time I was actually sick, it was a year ago. And a horrible experience. This morning I woke up with some sniffles and a sore throat. Good thing I had a huge veggie-tastic dinner last night to help battle whatever I was coming down with. I made up another batch of Melissa’s Old-School Italian Meat sauce and topped it with a bag of frozen mixed Italian veggies.


The sauce is sort of a pain to make, but it is soooo good, and lasts for at least a couple meals. This one had chicken and Italian sausage links. We had a friend over to watch the Creighton game and all three of us had a hearty serving with plenty of leftovers for lunch today. To be honest, I really don’t care for basketball; it was more of an excuse to hang out and drink more beer.

I skipped my run (again) this morning. The alarm went off, and my throat and sinuses went, “oh HELL no!” so I slept for another hour. I’ve been such a get-up-early wuss lately. My alarm goes off and my brain just grumbles and rolls over. Obviously the solution is to go to bed earlier so I get the sleep I need to wake up on time, but I already go to bed at 9 pm. Any earlier than that and I’ll almost be going to bed earlier than Squishy which just seems not right. But maybe I need the same amount of sleep as my 15-month old.

For Bfast this morning Squish and I feasted on the egg bake I prepped yesterday. With my usual cup o’ joe and coconut milk.


Packed some leftover Italian sauce and a small salad for lunch. Never gets old.


Now I’m counting the minutes until I can snuggle down in my bed at home with my sweats and a cup of lemon tea. A couple of early nights and I think I can shake this thing.

Despite the run-down-itis, I still managed to cute it up this morning.


I’m surprised my modeling career hasn’t taken off yet.

Oh, and I got a mani-pedi this weekend. Hooray for being a girl!


Girls: you into any girly things lately?
Guys: are there any girly things you secretly want to have/do? There was a guy at the salon getting a MAN-i-pedi at the prompting of his girlfriend. He seemed to enjoy it.
