I am so miserably sick.
The sore throat progressed into congestion/sinus pressure/cold/stuffy nose. Pretty much everything you can think of. It isn't even like a "normal" cold-it's like the worse kind. I was up all night because I couldn't breath. I had to sit up a lot to breath, which meant I couldn't sleep. I took a hot bath when I got out of bed in the morning, and then read for about 3 hours with Landon. We then went over to Landon's parents to go baby shopping for Miriam & Mark. We found a 2nd hand store that had very very nice things. We got them a LOT of nice stuff for only 130.00. Probably close to 20 outfits, as well as a carseat and a baby sling for walking. They are going to be excited when they receive all the nice things we are all pitching in to give them.

Landon and I came home to find the Oil Can Henry check in the mail, which was a great relief. I was beginning to wonder if we'd ever see that money.

Tongiht, we went out with my family for Shelly's birthday. Everyone was about 30 minutes late, so Landon and I ended up sitting outside for a long time waiting. We were finally seated, and shortly thereafter everyone arrived except for Kristi & Zac. They showed up over an hour late, because they stayed behind to nurse the baby. When they arrived, Kristi got upset that we'd ordered without waiting for them. I got very angry about this, because Landon and I had been waiting (very hungrily I might add) for over an hour, and to have someone be so selfish really upset me. Not only that, but they didn't say anything to me about the photo album I made for them and sent to McMinnville, which really hurt my feelings. I put a lot of time and energy into that and other things I have done for them, and I feel like my efforts are not appreciated. It is not a good feeling.

After the Spaghetti Factory fiasco, we drove quickly to Sherwood to catch a movie. We saw Intolerable Cruelty, which was slow, and in my opinion not very good. It was okay. I guess it's worth seeing once, but not for $8.00 at a theater that doesn't hand out student discounts.

I was miserable all through dinner, barely touched my food. In fact, all I ate today was three fruit leathers and two or three tortellini shells from my dinner plate, and a few bites of my salad. I'm just not feeling well, and my appetite is completely gone. All through the movie I was coughing and wheezing, and I had taken medicine right before the movie, which didn't seem to help at all. I'm going to take some Nyquil tonight, and I am hoping this will help me to sleep (somewhat) soundly.

Today was a good day, aside from being sick, but tonight was not very fun. Waiting all that time at the restaurant when you are sick, and then having the people who were late get mad because we didn't wait longer to order really upset me. Yeah, I know-you can't control how other people behave-you can only control your reaction. Whatever. Tonight, my reactions (feeling hurt and angry) was pretty darn hard to control.

Regardless, Happy 22nd Birthday, Shelly.
