I'm HOT!

Not just hot because it feels like a sauna outside, but hot because I just had to pick my son up from school for a fever that he doesn't have! They said he had a 101 deg. fever, but when I got him home it was 97.3. He stood outside for a fire drill for 15 minutes in 100 degree heat with a black shirt, jeans, and black sneakers. When he came inside, he told the teacher he "felt hot" and she sent him to the nurse, who took his temp and came up with 101. Um... if you had stood baking outside you'd be hot too! Plus, children with autism sometimes have trouble regulating their body temperature... which he does. He's ALWAYS too hot - even wears short sleeves in the winter. SO... he can't go back to school until Friday b/c of the "24-hour fever free" rule. Give me a f*cking break!

Today I have felt very "blah". Had to take my mom to the dr. this morning, then as soon as I got back to work I had to leave again to go get my son to take him to my mom, then come BACK to work. I have NOT eat well today because my day has been crazy. I think I'm going over to Jessica's tonight b/c she wants to cook dinner for my daughter (who turned 12 yesterday). I love Jess b/c she always makes sure to cook something low-fat/clean for me to eat, too. She is totally supportive of me losing weight and I love her for it.

I am almost over this cough, so I am going to pack my gym back and will try to go after work tomorrow. I MISS the gym, and I really need it right now. I never thought I would miss the gym... go figure.
