I had such high hopes for this weekend....and it didn't quite turn out the way I expected. Arsen started getting sick Thursday night, and by Friday he was miserable. He went to the doctor Friday and they told him it was a sinus infection. He got some medicine and laid on the couch all Friday night trying to feel better. Since it was a sinus infection I wasn't worried at all....those aren't contagious, right? That's what I've always heard.
I went on like normal thinking I was in the clear. By Saturday afternoon, I was pretty miserable. By that night, I was definitely sick. I have had allergies and sinus problems my entire life, and I have never had a sinus headache as bad as the one I had from Saturday until late Sunday night. I'm still confused how this happened. Apparently sinus infections are indeed contagious.
I had some kind of horrible reaction to the sinus medicine I was taking and literally slept about one hour all of last night. I was still super sick this morning, so I stayed home and finally fell asleep about 9 this morning....and slept until almost 4. MUCH needed. So, needless to say it wasn't quite the wonderful Easter weekend we were hoping for!
However, we did go see my family on Saturday. So even though we were both sick that day, he was already feeling better and I was just starting to feel bad. We went by my dad's for a couple of hours to visit, and then we went to my grandparents for dinner with most of my mom's side of the family. It was really nice to see everyone...even though we all live within a few hours of each other, we really only get together on the holidays.
The most entertaining part of the evening, for me at least, was seeing Addie try to scare my Grandmother's cat. This cat is literally twice Addie's size, and he wasn't having it. Addie would run at him and bark, and he would arch his back and hiss. I think Addie knew she couldn't take him, but she just couldn't help herself. I was terrified the thing was going to tear her apart.
This upcoming weekend is the bachelorette party for one of my very best friends. We are having the bachelorette here in Dallas, and then her wedding is two weeks later in Oklahoma. Katie and I have been super close since we met at OSU (through very strange circumstances), and I adore the guy she is marrying. I'm so happy for her! She and I have seen each other through some not so great "boy problems", so I'm relieved we both found such wonderful guys. Arsen and Q (her fiance) get along so well that I always tease them about their "bromance", so it all worked out quite well. Now if I could only convince them to move to Dallas....
