Wordy Wednesday

When I do not feel well there is a lot that goes undone around my home. It's not as bad now that it is just me and my child without any other adults (those over 18) in the house that could have, but did not do anything that needed to be done.

While getting tons of rest is not an option with a small child to care for we are starting to cope. I nap while she is at school when I do not feel well. I make sure to set my alarm clock for an hour before school lets out in order to give myself time to wake up completely.

Altered Routines

When I am sick the routines all change. I do not get up at 5 a.m. and drink my coffee instead I hit the snooze until I have no choice but to get out of bed. We manage to get ready for the school day, unless it is a weekend then I am awaken by the baby.

I hold onto counters to get things done, and of course do far less than I normally would. I do not care that I do not accomplish anything while I am sick. My body calls for rest, and I attempt to give it as much as I can.

I drink all day when I am sick but eat very little. It is difficult when it is hot because I drink hot tea when I do not feel well.

We eat convent items, or leftovers because there are days when I am too sick to stand and cook. The baby seems to enjoy these days because I typically keep snack items and things she can fix herself. 

That wraps up my wordy Wednesday. Until next time I hope you have something pleasant to talk about and that you remain in good health.

Twenty Years of Lessons

The last twenty years have taught me things that I never learned in school. The lessons make me wonder what the big deal about finish this degree or that vocational program is. So what have I learned?

Starting Over. Again.

Life never goes the way we plan and that's okay. We just had a major change that I tried and tried to plan for only to have my plans fall apart every. single. time. It was when I stopped with the obsessive planning and pulling my hair out that it all came together. We're doing pretty good while we make the adjustment to home. Here's hoping that we'll be completely back on track soon.



Until next time, never listen to the voice that says you can't. Find the voice that says Fuck it I'm doing it.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
