Happy Valentine's Day (cough, cough)

We hope everyone had a Happy Valentine's Day this last week. We are glad to have this three day weekend to recuperate from our week. I got a cold on the 6th and still had it Tuesday when I got a sinus infection. I've never had one before so when my cheeks started to swell, my teeth were hurting, and I couldn't take the pressure anymore I turned to Google. My symptoms told me I had a sinus infection and I didn't know what to do. I went to bed early and my mother-in-law called around ten. She called me in a prescription for a 3-day Zpack, but I couldn't pick it up until the next day. I only got one hour of sleep that night at the most. I went to school on Wednesday and only lasted half of the day before I called a sub and picked up my prescription. I took the first pill at 2:00 in the afternoon and fell asleep until about 7:30. I felt much better.

Valentine's Day was just a regular day for us. I was still sick and Weston started getting a cold a few days before. I tried to tell him that kissing while I was sick is not a good idea. So, we spent our Valentine's Day coughing, sneezing, blowing our noses, clearing our throats, and other not so romantic symptoms of the common cold. Weston got a sinus infection on Saturday. His mom called him in some antibiotics too. It's really nice having a midwife for a mother-in-law. This weekend we've been taking it easy and trying to feel better. I'm done with my sinus infection and almost done with my cold. Weston is not so lucky yet.
