Before this school year started, I rarely got sick. I mean it. It never mattered who was sick around me, I never got anything. My family would jokingly cough on me. Nothing. Mini and her father would come home sick. Nothing.
All that changed this school year. I've been sick twice already! It certainly doesn't help that the weather has been insane. It's 45 one day and 70 the next. At night, we have already hit the 30s. I'm freezing when I go to bed, but boiling when I wake up. All this is a perfect storm for getting sick.
The biggest thing that is bothering me at the moment is that I have yet to go pumpkin or apple picking yet. I'm so incredibly disappointed! The first two weeks of school I was dealing with something emotionally that led to my lack of sleep. The next two weeks, I was sick. By the time my cold was gone, I had sprouted a new wisdom tooth. However, this new tooth came in both impacted and infected. Let me tell you how much fun that was! After being in ridiculous pain for a week (the pain spread to the side of my head and was causing migraines and facial swelling), I went to the dentist and begged him to pull it. After that, I was on meds for the pain and the infection plus a soft-food-try-to-have-mostly-liquids diet. When I was done with the meds and my gums had healed, I got sick again.
In short, I have gotten NOTHING accomplished since school started. Still.
I have always loved the Fall. I love the changing leaves, the excuse to bust out my extensive sweatshirt collection, more reasons to drink coffee during the day, pumpkin bread/muffins/cake/cupcakes, football and basketball starts... You get the idea. This Fall, however, has not been my friend. I hope things will start to look up in the coming weeks. I hate being sick!
How is YOUR Fall going?
