Fa La La La Blah!

I’m going to try to make this a quick one. But then y’all know how long-winded I can be. It’s Boxing Day here in the UK. No, I don’t really know what that means. When we first moved here it was the day that all of the women in my husband’s family got together for brunch in the morning and then proceeded to have a drink in every pub in town. In heels. I can’t claim that I was ever good at that particular tradition and, secretly. I’m happy that we moved away and that thanks to Hunter (and especially Scarlett on the way right now), I have the perfect excuse not to hit the town. Ever. I’m more of a few-beers-on-the-couch-watching-NFL kind of girl.
So we’re at home today—DH, the monster and I. The boys have just beat me at Scooby Doo Guess Who? and the little man is now upstairs in his room, once again refusing to go to sleep. God only knows what I’ll do with him when school starts again. I’m munching on Doritos and dip waiting for DH to sit down to watch Lie to Me. All in all, it could be a perfect evening… if it wasn’t for this damn sinus infection. Yep. Here we go again.
Only a few weeks ago I was on antibiotics for a sinus infection and was up consecutive nights running fevers and cursing the world as they slept peacefully. Then last night I awoke from a fitful sleep and realised it was back for round two.
Oh the joys of pregnancy. I’m feeling like crap and can’t do much about it. I am a big fan of herbal remedies, but after no sleep last night and a truly rotten morning, I’m ready to pull out the big guns. I just can’t imagine hurting Scarlett in the process. I will say, though, that I was surprised with how quickly the warm saltwater gargle knocked out the sore throat. It’s still taking the edge off. I think I’ll take the salt shaker upstairs tonight.
I really hope I don’t start in with the fever again tonight. I also wish I could hook the vacuum up to my right nostril and just keep it on low through the night. More than anything, I’d kill to just get some sleep. I wish there was something I could do, something I could take, just to get a decent night’s sleep. So, I’ve spent the last few hours ‘Googling’ to find out what I can take which won’t hurt the baby. So far, it looks like Sudafed and Benadryl may be options. I think I’ll call the midwife tomorrow and see. Fingers crossed.
