Happy Healthy Monday

OMGoodness what a week it has been. Sickness has struck our house. 2 weeks ago it started with little Cooper and moved onto Hubby. I started taking stuff to prevent me from getting it but no such luck. Thursday I got it bad and went to the Dr. He gave me nada for it. WHen I woke up Friday I could barely move and my throat glands were so huge my face looked swollen. I slept all of Friday and thank God for Momma she took Cooper for the night so hubby and I could get so much needed sleep. I feel better today but still stuffed up.

Weight wise in the past 2 weeks I have somehow lost 10lbs. Must be all that soup I ate. That is about the only upside to getting sick.  So with being sick I didn’t get much accomplished around the house. I barely got laundry done. We did go Sat and got a new light, sink with cabinet, and wall cabinet for the bathroom. I hope to get that installed next weekend. The guys come next Monday to start work on the basement and we get the new carpet in the living room.  2 week to go and I can get my house on the market and look at the one I want.

Well I need to get to work. Hope you all have a super day!
