tired woman


Whew!
Maybe you knew, maybe you didn't, but in between my resolutionary activities
I've been nursing kids with a nasty stomach virus.
I was going for the "Mom's aren't allowed to get sick" scenario.
Things didn't quite play out that way, but we're on the flip side now.
One day down, one day in recovery.
I have to laugh when I remember my thoughts as I was bent over the bowl;
"Good thing I've been working on my inner core strength"
and
"This makes the abs and back routine look like a cake walk"
Then like a gift from heaven, the skies will open up this afternoon, and cause all evening activities to be cancelled. One more evening of REST. Thank you, snow.

Sorry that you didn't escape the stomach bug. Guess when one gets it, it travels through the entire family. Hope everyone is feeling better now.

oh, I am so sorry. Being sick is no fun... and moms still have to be moms when sick! Ugh...
Glad you are in the way back.
I have a horrible cough (not complaining.)
But hard to teach seminary while coughing the whole time.
My poor class...
One more day of seminary then we are off for 10 days. if my cough isn't gone... well, it better be!
Thats all, it just better be.
Get better... and keep the bowl clean, just in case... nothing worse than going to throw up, and lifting the lid to find that your 8 year old son "dribbled" on the bowl... and you have no time to clean it first...
oh, been there, done that... hope you didn't have to!
Happy being snowed in...
this is starting to be a monday thing I think.

I'm a bit torn right now. I am really enjoying our rather warm weather here in Utah, but I can't help but wish to be snowed in for a couple of days.

Hmmm...Maybe instead of P90X, I should have given Alana the flu...

Get better fast! Hope your resolutionary included clean bathrooms.

Dang! I'm sorry to hear you got the bug. Glad you get one more evening of rest--be sure to spend it actually RESTING! Here's wishing you a speedy recovery!
