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.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

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.

Saturday Evening Post

I was reading through this blog and noticed that there were somethings that I'd forgotten. It's amazing how time changes things without your even noticing at times.
