I didn't realize how much of a toll Mono would take on me. It's now been a week since I started feeling symptoms and I'm still unable to function normally. I did work yesterday, but I think I survived on pure adrenaline. By 1:00 or so, I was shaky and sweaty and ready to get out of there.

I thought I was strong enough to go to Walmart for some groceries last night. Big mistake. I was ready to pass out within minutes so Erik took me home. I crashed in my bed around 9 last night while he went back to get the things we needed. Then today I slept until...get this...noon. I have never done that!

This upcoming week is spring break, so I should be able to get all the rest I need. I hope I feel more like myself by the time I go back to work. Now, I think I'll go take a nap...

So much for my self-diagnosis...

It's not flu. It's mono.

I should feel better by my wedding day...right?

My teeth are chattering...

I got chills, they're multiplyin'...

I think I have the flu. Fever, chills, painful cough. The whole kit 'n caboodle (is that how you spell it?) I've had a flu shot, but when one of my classes came down with it, our school nurse explained to us that our flu shot covered a different kind of flu...we were still susceptible to the kind the kids' had.

I'm staying home from work today which I'm sure will just thrill my boss. I've already been home several days this semester with Bailey sick. Oh well, more time to work on wedding stuff. I scanned 175 childhood pics of Erik and I this past weekend, all for our slide show. Yes, I know I'll have to edit that number down or else our slide show will be an hour long...but his pictures are so cute! I want to use all of them!

Have a wonderful week everybody! 5 days 'til Spring Break...well, actually 4 days now.

Wedding Details!

Here is our tentative plan for the wedding:

We're going to start out with a slide show. Different songs are going to play while we show pictures of ourselves from childhood to now. Bailey even has a segment of the slide show. That will play as people are entering the church. Our music choices are still a little bit up in the air...I seem to be eliminating more of Erik's choices than mine. I can't help it...I'm just really picky.

A friend of mine will then start playing the bagpipes...he will play as Erik and his best man walk in and stand and continue playing while one by one our nieces and nephew walk down the aisle. Since they're really all too old to be ring bearers and flower girls we just want them to walk in so they can be part of it.

After that, my best friend and her sister will sing a duet that Erik loves as my sister and then Bailey and I walk down the aisle. Bailey is going to stand with us...he's as much a part of it as we are. I have no idea about the rest of the wedding...although I think our reception is pretty well figured out. We have a chocolate covered strawberry theme there. Erik is really excited about

I can't believe the wedding is almost here. Two months basically and I don't feel prepared at all. I don't even have a dress picked out!!! Maybe I should do that!

So what do you think? Is is a weird wedding, or what? lol
