Missing Out

I contracted Strep Throat late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. As soon as I woke up in the middle of the night with fever, chills, headache, body aches, and a severe sore throat I knew. I wasn't very happy. I have missed out of a few things because of this sickness.

First up, Jake and Candice's wedding gift:
We always give a group gift among the Jensen siblings when one of them gets married. It is always fun to try and find the perfect gift and it is even funner to watch them open it. This happened Sunday morning and, unfortunately, I stayed home and got to visit Insta Care instead. And do you know what else is missing. A cute wrapping job!

Second thing I missed out on: Young Women's.

I know most of you are thinking this is no big deal and it usually wouldn't be, but I worked on our Young Women in Excellence project all week to have it done on Sunday. I made a scrapbook with a pic of each girl and a spot for them to write their testimonies. Very bummed that I couldn't be there to witness the unveiling.

Third: The Museum.

The boys had a field trip on Monday morning at the Children's Museum. I think it is such a fun place and the great part of it was the adults didn't have to pay and each kid was only $3!!! Such a deal. Well, Trent, being the good dad that he is, stepped in and took all 5 kids. He was the only dad there AND the only one taking pictures. Isn't he the best?

Last, but actually a good one: Calories.

Since I can't swallow very well I haven't eaten too much in the past two days. It has actually been great. Perfect way to get back on my diet. Although, our good friend Kristen was nice enough to bring us a meal last night and I couldn't even eat very much of it. Sad. Kristen is always thinking of us. You gotta love amazing people like her! Thanks Piggy! ;)

I am starting to feel somewhat better. Trent went back to work today, so I actually have to get out of bed. I think we will be watching PBS kids and a few movies. And maybe making some hot chocolate to 'celebrate' the new snow. Not too excited about the start of winter, but what can you do.

Way to look on the bright side Amy! I hope you're feeling better now!

p.s.s. Are you taking your kids to DFCU on Friday? We should go at the same time!

That's awful news about your strep! I'm so glad Trent could step in and help. How miserable. Hope you're making it through the day today . . .

Seriously?! Trent stayed home from work while you were sick? That's awesome! I was sick this week too and kept thinking how nice it'd be to get a "sick day" and stay in bed! Glad you're feeling better!

Steph said...

Well at least it wasn't the swine flu right? Hope you get feeling better, it's so not fun to be sick and still have to do all the mom stuff. Glad Trent helps out!

Being sick is zero fun, I'm afraid I'm fighting a few germs myself! :(

Andrea said...

So sorry you're sick. I hate strep throat.

Seriously, get rid of the creepy pic of you and Trent. It's freaking me out. (I'm not joking!)

Kim said...

Sorry that you're sick and that you had to miss out on all the fun. It's a good thing Trent helps you out so much and that you have such great friends that are always willing to step in when you need it. Looks like your kids had a great time at the museum. Is that always the price of admission? Very cool!

love that not only did Trent pick up the sick slack, but he takes pictures too! glad you are feeling better. i hate missing out on things you are invested in (awesome idea on the scrapbook...might have to use that one sometime).

also, in answer to your soccer question (i know, random), registration usually starts in may for the following year. i'll try to remember to let you know when it gets going.

I'm with you about getting sick. I hate it, but I secretly love that I'm not eating more calories.

You did miss out on a bunch. I'm glad you have so much support from your hubby and neighbors and family so you could get better and your kids didn't suffer too bad. I hope you are feeling all better now. Hurray for PBS kids!
