Good news, no concussion for Kiddo, just a nasty case of the flu. A full day of rest for her and some SEVERE Tylenol Cold and hopefully tomorrow she'll be up and at 'em again.
I had a horrendous night for sleeping. I woke up at about 1:30 am with a headache that made me want to rip my head off. At first, I thought that I was dehydrated so I got up and had a glass and a half of water and tried to relax myself enough to get back to sleep. After about 20 minutes, I laid back down and fell asleep. But not for long. 4:30 rolled around and I was awake again. Seriously, I thought my head was gonna come OFF. Seeing as how I didn't want to wake Lovey, I went down to the kitchen to get even MORE water. Somewhere after about another glass and a half, I touched my face and realized that it wasn't a dehydration headache, but a sinus one instead.
Do you know how long it takes for the hot water to get to the faucet when I don't know where the hot water heater is and it's all of 4 degrees outside? Longer than I wanted to wait, that's for sure. When it finally got there, I managed to get a hot washcloth on my face to try to tame my out of control sinuses.
Sidebar: I couldn't find my sinus meds so I took the last of the Tylenol Go-Tabs. If you've had this, you know. If you haven't, please be warned that it is one of THE most disgusting things I've ever tasted in my entire life. Gross, gross, gross!
I managed to get a couple more hours in before we went out to the grocery store and to the Sports Authority. Woot!! I got new snowboard boots! My old ones, circa 2002, were really killing my feet and my mom had just given me a couple bucks so I splurged. And get this, brand new K2s and I got them for $94!! On top of all that, they're so super comfortable. It's like sex on my feet! Added bonus, it gives me way more control on my board and I feel like I might go crazy and ride a blue!
Anywho, I'm beat. There are new pics up at http://www.flickr.com/photos/miamishyner. I'll leave you with this:
