One of those days

I know that everyone had had a morning like mine yesterday. It was one of those days that when you wake up you know that you are going to have a rough day. I didn't sleep well between the peeing, heartburn, back pain and cough (which I still have). I woke up around 6 which is when Bry usually gets up. He was up til like 2am working so he slept another hour. I finally got up at 7am because today I am doing my 24 hour urine collection crap. First thing I did was fill up my big water bottle and put it on my bed so I could go back to sleep for a while. Next I pee in a cup (brings back memories of TTC) and almost overflow the cup on my hand (yuck!). In the process of peeing I fling the nightlight off the wall. Then I take it to the jug and pour it in, while dumping some on my hands. I almost throw up in the process of doing this. I try to put the jug in the fridge cause it has to stay cold, but it doesn't fit. So I have to do a tilting balancing act to get it to stay put.

Then I decide to try to go back to sleep. It is then I discover I didn't screw the cap on my water bottle and all 24 ounces have spilled on my bed. At this point I am tired and cranky and almost in tears. It got on the comforter, sheets, pillows, everywhere. I strip the bed so the water will dry, grab another blanket and try to get some sleep. Can't sleep so I finally get up. I grab my morning pills (thyroid, blood pressure, GERD, etc.) and sit on the sofa to take them all. I then drop them on the floor and most of them roll under the sofa. I look under the sofa and have to blow the dust bunnies away to find the pills. I get my huge self off the floor (NOT EASY) and take my dusty pills. That way promptly followed by my second bloody nose is the past couple weeks. I haven't had them since I was a kid.

The day just progressed from there... another bloody nose, terrible heartburn, etc., etc., etc. Those are the days when you wish you could climb back into bed. Only I couldn't cause my blankets were in the wash. ;>)
