today's only monday

Three hours ago I took my last dosage of ibuprofen. I’m allowed to take this dosage every six hours.

I’ve been awake for a hot minute now (no pun intended), with fever and shaking and so much soreness…so much…, and there is a helicopter whirring in my ears (I promise that’s the closest I can think to describe it), and I finally got up to check my temp. Well, that’s a lie, I got up to use the restroom and I checked my temp while I was at it. I have, what is the equivalent for me (because my resting temp is an entire degree below ‘normal’ resting temp), a temp of 103.2*F.

I am so damn miserable.

Tmi, but just lying here I can tell that my vagina feels really hot.

So I looked up acetaminophen dosages for BFing, got a big ol’ ‘fuck you’ in my haphazard googling, and decided to just take the dosage that is allowed when you take two percs. I mean, that makes sense, yeah? And I can take this dosage every four hours as needed, too.

At least my brain is somewhat working.

I hope I can get back to sleep. :( I’ve been awake for a while now…

Edit: I just figured it out. The sound? I can hear my own blood circulating in my damn ears. Fucking hell…

Hrrrnndkgjlg. Curse being sick. Curse work.

I just wanna write.

Summer is here and it’s time to venture into the great outdoors and explore all that nature has to offer. It’s not just us humans that like exploring though, so this week’s #NTchallenge is *Animals doing #50things*. We want to see dogs, cats, squirrels, birds, seals, deer, owls, insects, and more, taking enjoying any of the following; climbing a tree, jumping over waves (or perhaps puddles), climbing a really big hill, building a den, making a trail with sticks, rolling down a hill, making (eating) a mud pie, going swimming in the sea, tracking wild animals, camping out in the wild, and any other #50things activity you can think of J Good luck! Just add the #NTchallenge hashtag to them from today until Monday. Only photos uploaded to Instagram from now until Monday are eligible - any photo taken and tagged is eligible to be posted (along with the copy) on both our Instagram channel and our other social channels; like Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr. Worth noting that we give preference to photos taken at NT places! Watch out on Monday for our winner and five runners-up. No prizes, this one’s just for fun!

Hopefully this week’s #NTchallenge theme of *Chase the sun* won’t jinx the weather for the weekend ahead (sorry in advance if it rains where you are…). As it’s the third weekend in July *fingers crossed* the skies will (might) be blue and the sun will shining bright - perfect for you to capture sunrises, if you’re up early, or splendid sunsets like this one in Cornwall. If the weather isn’t on your side we’ll let you have photos of sunflowers and anything else sun based that you can think of too J Good luck!
