Shaking Off Last Week

It's been way too long since our last chat!  I hope everyone is staying warm out there in this Arctic blast we're having.  Here's a little ditty about what's been going on in my neck of the woods....

I though I would fancy it up and give it to you "Tay Tay Swifty style."  She is, after all, who I modeled my new hair cut after!   


Feel free to sing along to this sick beat.

----------------------

Last Monday I spent at my least favorite place, Wal-Mart, picking up all the stuff for the school party.  Yes, I was still in charge of the school party.  We had a house showing smack dab in the middle of nap time so Baby Girl slept in the car and I aimlessly drove around.  


Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

Baby Girl was exhausted and gave me major attitude on Tuesday and got in big trouble.  When she cut her eyes and started slamming things I realized she was copying me!  The refrigerator man was back at the house since he never really fixed it the first time around.  Over $400 later he damaged my kitchen cabinet, was rude, and maybe fixed the fridge.  Baby Girl missed another nap because we had a second showing that afternoon. 

Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

I woke up on Wednesday with a slightly scratchy throat and spent the morning with a needle in my hand getting my infusion.  I came home to rest and woke up with the worst stinking cold.  I said "Oh My Gosh", but I'm just gonna shake.

Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

Thursday was the big day of the school event.  We had around 300 people coming and hardly any volunteers.  I left for the school to set-up with a fever of 101.  Everything turned out great and the party was a success.  Some mamas chipped in to help and everyone (especially Baby Girl) had fun, even when the jump castle deflated with all the kids in there.  


Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

Friday I woke up and was oh so sick.  I had to drive to pick up my girl from school with my head on the steering wheel.  I actually spent most of the day on the couch, which I never do.  I could tell this funk was going to my lungs.  

Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

The weekend was pretty quiet, I tried to look alive.  We went to a party, but had to leave early because I was feeling pretty bad.  I don't think I've ever taken so many cold meds in my life.  I managed to wash a ton of laundry, but couldn't bring myself to fold it. (Still haven't, actually.) We got an offer on the house but it fell through the next day.  


Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

By the time Monday rolled around, I was coughing up a lung, couldn't talk at all, had a horrible headache, was sleeping with kleenex up my nose, and felt pretty stinking awful.  I went to the doctor and she said I had bronchitis and a sinus infection.  Ugh.  

But I keep cruising,
Can't stop, won't stop grooving,
It's like I got this music
 In my mind
Saying, "It's gonna be alright."

Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off.

So, what song would you put your week to?  

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?   Because I'm going to have to fold those stinking clothes.  Tonight.  Boo.  Shake it off girl, shake it off.
