a sad little birthday and 4th of july

sooo...remember that one time i got sick on my birthday and then it lasted through the 4th of july and lots of fun plans got scrapped? yeah :( i started feeling sorta crappy monday night, but i didn't feel like i should take a sick day when i was only working 2 days this week. so i powered through the work day tuesday (my birthday). i felt okay except my voice was nearly gone. i went out for lunch with a bunch of my co-workers and out for a quick drink at the end of the day.

my parents were going to have us over for dinner and cake and we went but i turned into a huge pathetic mess. i had no appetite, so i didn't eat one bite of the yummy food (including the cake thatcher made - which pretty much killed me). instead i laid on the couch with a blanket over me, shivering from chills, while my fam celebrated my birthday in the other room. sad huh? i did sit up for a while to open a few cards and gifts. this is my only picture from the night. it's totally necessary to take a picture of the cake i didn't get to eat, right?

i did get to have some tonight and it was so good!!

we got home from my parents' around 8:00 and put azalea down. i was supposed to be leaving this morning with azalea for my best friend's family's cabin for the 4th, but i had to call her last night and tell her we couldn't come. i told her we might be able to come on thursday. after that, i fell asleep on the couch for 2 hours. happy 28th birthday to me!

i woke up still feeling pretty awful this morning, so i went to a walk-in clinic as soon as it opened. they tested me for strep and it came out negative, which sucks in a way because i couldn't get antibiotics. they are going to send the test to the lab, but the nurse thought i might just have a virus. so lots of rest and ibuprofen was advised. my parents offered to take azalea for a while this morning, so that was nice! then azalea and i spent the afternoon taking naps (azalea was quite resistant for a while, of course on a day when we really needed her to nap). thatcher worked on the basement for a while. tonight thatcher is playing games at some friends' and i am watching a 2012 made for tv titanic movie. i know, try not to be too jealous. i'm bummed i'm missing fireworks, etc tonight, but it's ok. i'm feeling somewhat better and azalea and i are headed to the cabin tomorrow (just for the day), so i'll have a post on that later!

i'll end this with a little flashback of azalea last year on the 4th. she was 3 months:

Hi Melissa,
Great blog and cute picture. Hope you are feeling better now. Swimming is great cardio exercise to lose weight by burning calories and regulating metabolism. Swimming improve muscle strength and makes hips, shoulders, back and arms muscles strong.
