When sickness comes

Tina Here,

Feeling pretty under the weather today. So much so that the first sentence sat alone on this page for no less than 15 mins. The biggest obstacle in becoming sick is that I just don’t have the time for it. With a 5-month-old puppy, a 5-year-old boy and my 11-year-old visiting for the summer, I am expected to entertain and be present for the day. No lounging in the bed all day to recover for me.

However, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Sick as I feel it stinks that I can’t be more energetic for them and let them run around like the crazy people they are, but I am just in the dumps. I can’t take anything that would help me feel better because I can’t point to one thing and say, “Yes, that is what is wrong with me.” I have to just get up, get dressed and put it all in my brain.

The slow feeling that has invaded me seems to be infesting other parts of my life as well. My once tidy little kitchen has dishes piled high. My living room is a picture of chaos. The poor puppy is also running out of places to poo because I haven’t had a chance to clean up!

My amazing husband does the best he can to take care of me.  Unfortunately, he is at work for 11 hours of the day. However, I am holding out hope that tomorrow I can sleep in a bit. Maybe go to bed early tonight.
