Can you beleive it, I am dressed? Well barely. My hair is wet and I have no make up on but hey I put on an outfit besides yoga pants and uggs. This was supposed to be worn 3 days ago before I got sick so it was just sitting out already. The inspiration photo is below:

I picked this inspiration cause it was using a odd colored velvet blazer (which I have) and a white bead necklace (which I have). See it was a way for me to use these two pieces which has been collecting dust in the closet.

I also have not worn these work slacks in ages. Luckily they must have bought from a time where I was the same size so they fit perfectly. Yeay.

I like this white and white accessory look. I wish I had some brown booties as that would have been better.

This was right before I used every single ounce of energy I could gather to shower and get dressed to take the kids to the indoor play area. My motivation to get them going is pedialite popsicles.

Today's Activities: So woke up feeling still horrible and now with a bigger swell around my right ear. I took all the meds plus pain releivers and waited laying on the couch while my daughter filled every single cup of theirs with water and carried it over to me while spilling them everywhere to which my son kept screaming 'she is spilling'. Yeah, so very relaxing.
But then the pills kicked in and I made the most of this short lived energy burst to clean the dishes, shower and get dressed and get the kids ready and out the door. The indoor place was not much better for me as there are no couches to lay on but at least the kids were having fun and not jumping on me. Fed them lunch there and brough them home just in time for naps. And crashed as soon as they were down.

Unfortunately no help was in sight in the afternoon and I had lost all the energy to go back out again. We again broke the rules and popped in a movie but then my husband came home early and took them to the park before sunset so they can get some fresh air.

God, I hope I feel a bit better tomorrow. I am so tired of feeling so sick and exhausted and in pain.

Snapped some photos of the kids after my photos...

I told her to say 'cheese'!
