I am starting to recover from yet another nasty cold. I have no idea what is going on with my immune system, because this was my third viral illness in 3 months. And it was the Whole Package (throat, congestion, fevers, sooo much fatigue, blah blah blah). I haven’t worked out since Wednesday (Thursday was already starting to feel like @*(&@) and I spent most of the weekend lying around and feeling guilty about not helping enough with the kids.
Last night I was up tossing and turning with a) fever and b) anxiety about the fever continuing, because there is no room in my work (or home) life for rescheduling a full day’s worth of patients. Thankfully I woke up afebrile and honestly my job is not all that taxing physically. OTC medications help a lot and I am functional.
I am hoping (hoping!) that life will start to feel normal soon. I feel like I’ve been in a harried sprint since our air conditioner broke – and that was nearly a month ago! I want to have energy back so that I don’t feel like going to bed every night basically 5 minutes after the kids, and I want to feel like I am really experiencing this phase of life, not just surviving or racing through it.
On a totally unrelated note, because why not:
Meal plan for the week:
M – salmon, sweet potatoes, green beans
T – broccoli chevre soup from Run Fast Eat Slow, bread
W – leftover soup & possibly Amy’s pizza for kids (I have a work dinner out)
R – shrimp & tomato linguine from Run Fast Eat Slow, salad
F – leftovers
S – out (date night)
– playdate/dinner at our house – TBD but I may make stuffed chicken breasts from RFES
I am participating in LV’s time tracking challenge
! (On paper, because paper rules in my world). Hopefully I will be back to normal soon or there will be a lot of lying around recorded . . .
Evidence the weekend wasn’t aaaaaaall bad. Annabel w the class pet “Sharkie”. She had to document their adventures together (in pictures). Her first homework!
