Unfortunately, none of us are going to be bouncing back to our happy-hyper selves anytime soon. As much as I’d love for things to be back to normal NOW, I know that slow and steady wins the race.
I lasted until halftime last night, and then it was gulpy-gulpy cough syrup and off to la-la land. Nina was up way before the codeine wore off. Livi decided she wasn’t up for going to school. By 10:00, Gabe decided that she was going anyway. So he took her. Ava got on the bus at 12:30. Nina down for a nap at 1:00. Gabe down for a nap at 1:30. And I’ve had 2 hours to myself for the first time in 3 weeks. Very, very nice.
The food issue is getting frustrating. Nina has been living on strawberries and popcorn. Very little sounds good to me (or anyone else). The thought of cooking makes me want to hurl. Gabe has been picking stuff up for us here and there as things sound appetizing. Leftovers make us gag. No fun.
I cleaned off my desk. That feels good. The windows are open. That feels good.
Poor Gabe is so wiped out. I don’t know how he’ll ever get caught up on all these websites. And I’m leaving him with the kiddos Thurs at 4:30 p.m. and not coming home until Friday afternoon. We’ll make it all work somehow, eh?
I think that’s all I’ve got. Stay healthy!
