…Because LIFE ALWAYS GETS IN THE WAY!!!
I had major plans for this weekend and into this week, however, most of them are now foiled. Let’s start with Friday.
Friday, April 1st: I didn’t really have plans today besides the dentist. I needed 2 root canals, now I had had a root canal in High School and while I didn’t hurt after the numbing had worn off – I do remember being sleepy and taking a long nap. Therefore, I knew I’d pretty much be out of commision on Friday. Friday morning I woke up with a sore throat and a headache. I figured it was from lack of sleep (If I don’t get enough I get headaches and sore throats) and went about my day.
Saturday, April 2nd: I had planned to really do a good cleaning in the kids’ rooms and then if I had the energy in ours as well. Well I woke up with still a headache and sore throat. I also felt dizzy at times. I was upset that my plans were foiled once again! I spent Saturday sleeping and lounging around. Towards the end of the night I started thinking I wasn’t sick because of the dentist – something else was going on. My teeth felt mostly fine.
Sunday, April 3rd: Again, no real plans since it was Sunday. We were going to go to Eric’s parents home for dinner, but his mom got sick and so plans got cancelled. I guess it was a good thing cause I still felt like crap and slept most of the day.
Monday, April 4th: I was going to clean out our closets, get caught up on laundry and the other day to day things. Nate woke me up about 4:00 for a drink and I knew I still didn’t feel well. I told Eric he needed to stay home cause I didn’t trust myself staying home alone with the 2 little kids – I’d been falling asleep WAY too easy. I spent the day again, sleeping and lounging around.
After the kids got home from school we decided to go to Instacare. Why we went with all 5 kids when we could’ve only gone with 2 was simple. At the time when Eric left the house earlier in the day (with Ailey and Nate in toe), I didn’t feel like getting up or going anywhere. I still didn’t feel like going anywhere when we did, but we needed to.
I was diagnosed with Strep. Again! I swear I lived 28 years without major illnesses slowing me down and now in the past 3 or 4 years I’ve had Strep twice and a nasty bout of the rarer flu. Ay yi yi. I was given a wonderful shot in the butt so now I feel almost normal, although I’m still sooo tired AND I’ve got a sore butt as well.
As if that’s not enough…
– I’ve got dishes piled to the ceiling (Tanis, bless his heart is working on that now)
– Laundry is way, way, behind. (I’m surprised we all found clean underwear this morning)
– Our house looks like a home from HOARDERS … after a few hours of cleaning. (Okay, that’s a bit exaggerated, but only a bit)
Eric is AWESOME when it comes to caring for my needs when I am sick (He bought me Glee Season 1 on Blu Ray) and taking care of the kids and getting us fed. He isn’t a homemaker at all though – thus all the above. However, he did inadvertently do part of a job I had planned to do. Wasn’t that nice?
Still today I didn’t feel up to cleaning (my head is still everywhere but straight) and I am now like 3 days behind in my plans. It’s going to take more energy than I’m going to get this week to get it all done. Wish me luck – – or come on over and help me. Seriously. Help ME!
