I have a double what??!!!

OK, so unfortunately, I do not have a race report for the Zooma 5K this past Sunday. I'm really bummed that I couldn't do it. As you see from my previous post, I had entered into a three to four week laziness/sickness/doctorness (is that a word?) hiatus that kept me from training as much as I would have liked to. And I can't even remember what my bike or my swim suit looks like. I thought that my icky nose was simply a cold that I had gotten from the boys. I kept taking all the "over the counter" meds I could find, but nothing would shake it. So when I woke up this morning and I couldn't hear, I figured..... better go see the doc. And guess what she said...... "You, my dear, have a double ear infection." What!!?? Am I two years old?! Do adults get ear infections?! Yes, my dear, we do!

So I told myself to look on the bright side, at least I didn't skip the Zooma 5K because of plain laziness. I was really sick! And the doctor has loaded me up on all kinds of good stuff to kick this little buggy bog (does anyone watch Wow Wow Wubzy?) in its little rear-end. I really do hope to be back on track (for real this time) very, very soon.

On the mommy front, the boys had their 3 year dr appt today and they did absolutely fabulous! Every doctor visit for as long as I can remember has been nothing less than a nightmare. For two years, every visit consisted of shots (times two), poking, prodding, and the occasional naked pee fountain. When you have twins in daycare and you visit the doctor a multitude of times, it doesn't take long for a child to realize that they are entering a world where needles are a preferred method of communication. But today, something was different. Something happened. Today, they grew up just a little bit more. Today, they turned into big boys.

Happy training everyone! And please........ try to stay well.

Oh my, I'm sorry about your ears. I've got the never-ending cold too - into week 3 now. Sigh.

Hope you feel better soon!

Hi! I just found your blog through various tri blogs. Other than triathlon what really caught my eye was your twins! I have twin sons who turn four this Sunday. Can't believe it!!! Twins at doctor appointments are always an interesting visit. My boys have realized if they sit still for the doctor they "earn" a lolipop and sticker. This even includes their recent shots. Yes, it is quite neat to see them go from baby/toddlers to "big boys". Take care of yourself and hope your healthy soon! Jennifer in Indiana :)
