It's been a while since I've journaled here. Lately I've been feeling way strung out, too many family illnesses, too many functions, too many people, too much, too much.

It's all caught up today. Last night was a very late night with fireworks (should not have done that), and baby was exhausted and daughter woke up sick this morning. Husband also has a stomach/intestinal thing, so we are all home today (except baby, I took him to day care). I am so out of sorts. Slept for about 4 hour nap. Haven't tracked food yesterday or today. No running for me today. No working either.

I don't have a solution yet, just complaints. Hoping to get a shower (it's 4 p.m. and I haven't even done that yet), go get the baby, and start fresh tonight with some non-crazy house cleaning or laundry and get ready for tomorrow. IF daughter is well. IF I don't get sick (as if that's allowed). IF baby stays healthy (please God).

So sorry to hear husband and daughter are under the weather. I know you are exhausted - I can read it in your last sentence. Hang in there.

Laura, the one thing I do not do is make time for just me. I know you have written about your struggles with this also. Please promise yourself that you will do that tonight (if only for 15 minutes) after kids go to bed and husband out of the way. Maybe some light yoga stretching or just quiet reflection in a dark room. I will be thinking of you. - Alicia
