I just got over a really bad cold. Yesterday we went to pick up our kids some new bunk beds because the toddler beds they are in are just falling apart. I felt bad before we even walked out the door. My mother in law keep the kids and that was the best part because I did not have to deal with them all day. It feels like a bad flu. My eyes still are bad. I use the eye drops at least 5 times a day for relief. On a good note, I found out about a patient assistance program for the medicine I need to help my eyes. It cost $222 a month! I could never afford that so I am glad I found out about the program. They will send me 3 months at a time, if I qualify, which I am pretty sure I do! So, I hope this goes through because I have been battling these dry eyes for way too long. They burn, and just irritate me. So, I am definitely looking for some relief.
I had a really bad day yesterday! I gave into EVERY temptation. What's wrong with me? I did really good until after lunch time. For lunch we went to the Taco Bell drive thru. I had two Fresco Ranchero Chicken Enchilada. It is on the light menu and only 3 points each. Then I stopped and bought some Girl Scout Cookies. They have some that are 100 calorie packs. They were pretty good. I also ate some of the Caramel Delights not so good. Then for dinner we went thru the McDonald's drive thru with the kids. Usually, I get the Southwest Salad with grilled chicken, but no I got a Quarter Pounder meal. I NEVER get that. I also had some of dh's chips while we were transporting the stuff. We never eat out that much. I try to avoid it! I guess I just felt so bad I did not care what I ate. My dh is sick too this time and this is the kind of flu where every muscle in your body aches so you fell like doing nothing but sleeping. But we got 4 kids to take care of so we might take shifts. Oh I hate being sick! Igot on the scale this morning to see how much damage I had done and the number looked a lot better than I thought. I am just going to have to be very careful until my weigh in on Tuesday. It is snowing really bad here today and all I want is spring and no more colds!!!!
