What I’ve Been Up To

I’ve done pretty much nothing this week!  I have been a little under the weather this week.  The strep throat I had last weekend turned into a sinus infection, so all I have really wanted to do is just close my eyes!  It always makes me feel so tired, but I can’t sleep!  Plus, if I don’t catch it early, this time of year a simple cold or sinus infection will always turn into a really serious respiratory infection.  And then I’m down for a long time.  So, I caught up on my shows (NCIS: Los Angeles and Law and Order: SVU) on the DVR and have spent a lot of time resting and napping trying to get well.  I’ve also been drinking a ton of extra water and taking lots of vitamin C!  

I have really tried to eat healthy.  I haven’t had much of an appetite, but when I am hungry I’m craving things like hamburgers and donuts.  I don’t know why I do that when I’m sick.  But, I resisted and have eaten yogurt and granola bars.  I also had a peanut butter (with real peanut butter) and jelly sandwich for lunch one day.  That’s comfort food for me!  Jeremy made me a grilled cheese one night, and ham and eggs another night.  I’m not real big on ham, but I ate a little bit and it was good.

I found a new game on the app store and it is really addicting.  You should try it out.  It’s called 1010!  It’s kind of like Tetris but instead of the pieces falling, you have to strategically place them on the board to try and clear lines.  I like it!

My insoles for my shoes came in, but I have not felt like running.  I did try them out and take Jake for a walk.  They were really comfortable and I’m excited to get to run in them! As per my doctor’s recommendation, I got the orthotics for my running shoes, and the other pair for my regular tennis shoes.

I have noticed this week that I have had very little pain!! I’m so excited about that!  I woke up yesterday feeling much better than I had all week, so I’m hoping this weekend to get out and get a couple of runs in. 

Yesterday when I woke up, I felt really good!  I took Jake for a walk, and I was surprised at how hot it was.  It was 91 degrees at 11 am!  This is October – where is the fall weather!?!?  At least it looks like it’s coming soon.

On our walk, I noticed that the trees are finally starting to change colors a little bit.  The reds and yellows are really pretty.

We walked for almost an hour, and I was sweating!!

After our walk, we went home and had lunch and got ready to go hunting.  We are 15 days in to the hunting season, and we haven’t been one time!  I was really excited!   


We got to our blind around 4:00. We sat there until 7:30 and didn’t see anything! Partly because it was 95 degrees and partly because when it got cool enough for the deer to come out I had a coughing fit and couldn’t stop! But oh well, there’s always next time! 

It was so hot that I had to lose the camo shirt! 

The sky was beautiful when we left! 

We are visiting some family this weekend and will probably be hunting some more. It will be a fun weekend! 

What are your plans for the weekend?
