The beach, a day off, and a cold...

Well, we just came back from an amazing weekend at the beach. We went with our friends to celebrate Christie and Andrew's birthday. Christie's blog (here) has some amazing pictures from the weekend. I am so thankful that we got to go. We had a blast and it has been way too long since we had been to Oak Island together.

Before we left I had a huge headache and felt really nauseous. I was exhausted from the week and stressed about school things. I felt better later on but Saturday night my throat was on fire and I couldn't talk. I took some cold medicine that made me really drowsy so I don't really remember a lot of Saturday night, but Sunday I was really not feeling good. We drove to Wilmington for lunch and had a picnic of sorts, although it was really cold and windy. But Joel and I got some coffee and I got to relax the whole way home. When we got in the door, I went to lie down and felt extremely sick-headache, stomachache, sore throat, the whole nine yards. Joel was so good and took care of me. At one point, I woke up to him putting socks on my feet because they were cold. I am so thankful for my husband :)

Last week I asked for the day off today to make sure I got everything done before going back to work. And I am so glad I did, but I doubt I'll get anything done today. Tomorrow it's back to the grind!
