down & out

I had never had chills until this morning from approximately 1-4am. Moose kept waking up, hollering out (his heater was up too high). I couldn't pull myself out of bed, I was so darn cold. I had to wake up Big A and push him out of bed to check on our son.
Then around 6, I realized I was HOT. Too hot (I mean, I know I'm hot but phew this was too much LOL). I again pushed Big A out of bed to get me the thermometer (seriously, I couldn't have gotten up myself). 100.6 - I don't even remember the last time I was sick OR ran a fever. I just don't get fevers. I don't remember being this sick since long before Moose was born.
I was achy and every muscle hurt like I had just gone through the first few days of two-a-day volleyball training. Aerobics wasn't THAT hard last night, for pete's sake!
I wanted nothing more than to lay in bed and sleep. Big A made me get up to take a cool bath (well, it was supposed to be cool but when I stuck my foot in it was too cold so I blasted the hot water). I finished reading "Water for Elephants" (so good - go read it now). Then I got the baby ready for the day.
I'm just zonked today. I did make myself walk with the boys to get the mail but couldn't drag my feet to the park, despite the gorgeous weather. Instead we watched Blue's Clues (Moose has been talking about this show for a week), I fed the baby and put him down for his nap, and I tried to lay down. Moose kept coming over and tickling me - thanks kiddo.
Now I am going to warm us some yummy vegetable soup (I'll post a recipe next week because it's good!) and put him to nap early so maybe I can take a nap (yeah right).

Yuk, hope you feel better soon! The girls and I came down with that TWICE this past fall. We didn't get flu shots either...hmm... Hopefully the only kind of hot you'll be in a couple of days is what turns the hubby on! ;)
