Rip Van Winkle

I awoke this morning to Joe calling me “Rip Van Winkle”, the guy who slept for 20 years. I literally hadn’t moved from the bed since Friday night, except to attempt the grocery store. I cannot believe the amount of pain my body was in.  I had the heating pad on my back and the ice pack on my neck and head. Is this the flu? Sinus infection? Relapse of the cold? I still don’t know. In my stupidity, I still attempted to meet my friends at the Festival today. It was hard to get a picture where you could see everything, but it’s basically 8 streets of art vendors and fried food like sausage sandwiches, fried oreos, etc.

We stopped at Ralph’s for some italian ice. I got peanut butter and nutella mixed together with sprinkles on top. The nutella actually had hazelnuts in it. AMAZING!

This then led me right to my bed. My soreness and head hurting came back in full swing. The same thing happened yesterday when I ran to the grocery store. The second I got back, I was bed ridden for the night. When will this end? 😦

It comes and goes, and I am having a good hour at the moment, but I am going to rest some more so I don’t have to waste another vacation day tomorrow at work.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Miso Sick

Last night after work, I met my friend Kristina and we got mani-pedi’s at a new nail salon that had a Groupon special!

This picture was obviously taken from the bed today. I started feeling sore all over my body last night while at work and during our salon session. I ended up going out to eat anyway because we had plans with our friends Mike and Carrie (who are engaged and Kristina and I are both in the wedding this summer) to goto a new Hibachi place in town. We had an 8:00 reservation but did not get seated until 8:30.

I ordered soup to start, hoping that it would make me feel a little better.

Then, I ordered scallops and shrimp. I know they always give you 2 appetizer shrimp but that’s not enough for a shrimpaholic. I dug in before I got this picture. They were a little stingy with the veggies if you ask me.

I wish I didn’t feel so sick because I would have enjoyed it a lot more. I stopped in the restaurant to see Joe after because he was closing, and rushed home. I literally plopped right into bed with the heating pad and fell asleep at 10:30.

I woke up around the same time today and still felt like I could sleep for days. Luckily Joe was able to sleep in with me and since he was tired, we both skipped the gym. I can’t believe I had a relapse that now feels like the flu! I probably should have taken it a little more easy the past few days.

Tomorrow, there is  the Hoboken Art and Music Festival, which happens twice a year and I don’t want to miss it! It’s so nice to walk around, especially when the weather is nice (70 tomorrow!). Plus, there is a cake ball stand that I can’t get enough of! Carrie and I had plans to goto Brunch at Joe’s restaurant and walk around, so I am resting up all day today so I can go tomorrow.

Luckily, I am having a cleaning lady come on Monday while we are at work. That got me out of doing laundry and cleaning today so I can rest. I still have to run to the grocery store though. How much do you think I would have to pay her to do that too??? 😉
