Yesterday I woke up with a stuffy/runny nose and just a slight scratch to my throat. Today it's definitely a head cold.
Yesterday was Halloween, which required much to do on my part, including walking around in the chilly weather with little kids for an extended period of time. (When it got really cold I took Noah and some of the younger kids home and Josh stayed out with the bigger kids).
Yesterday I ate candy. More than I probably should have.
Last night, after putting the kids to bed and getting started on the cleaning, packing, organizing that I have to accomplish before Thursday morning, I finally went to bed at 1:40am. I woke up this morning with four hours of sleep.
Yesterday was a total fail in "how to get ready for race day".
Today will be better.
Today I am staying home all day. And wearing sweats.
Today I am not eating any candy. (Not one piece of the 26 POUNDS that is sitting in a Hefty bag in the closet).
Today I am resting as much as possible.
Tonight I will go to bed nice and early.
This is the official start to my "kick this cold to the curb and get rested up" plan.
Wish me luck!
