Roller Coaster

Yesterday was not a good day. I didn't have time to blog about it, but Sophie woke up with a stomach ache & then threw up before getting on the school bus. I was thankful she got sick at home instead of school, at least. She came into the office with me & was an angel, and luckily she didn't throw up again. She did have/still does have diarrhea now, but it's not horrible and I'm guessing she's almost done with this virus.

Work is crazy, since we are doing annual reviews with clients. So I'm not getting to have my blogging time like normal. That always kinda bums me out a bit.

After work, we had to go to Walmart to buy bread & other essentials and the kids were very well behaved. But after we got to the car & had everything unloaded, Sophie's diarrhea kicked in and we had to go back inside. It was around 10 degrees last night, so we were cold cold cold. And we were in the Walmart bathroom for a good 20 minutes (poor Soph!). We still had to pick up Mark's dry cleaning & didn't get home until after 7 p.m.

It was a frozen pizza night, obviously! We had dinner around 7:30, and I was just fried by then. Didn't clean the kitchen, didn't give kids baths, didn't workout. Basically I pretty much just gave up.

Which is usually when my food goes to hell too.

So today, I'm feeling down again. Sophie was still sick this morning & is with me again at work. She should make it to school tomorrow. It's still really cold but tomorrow it's supposed to be warmer & as God is my witness, I'm going running. Tonight if life doesn't blow up in my face, I'll do the Shred DVD again. I'm still sore from my first time through, which is a good sign. Those 20 minutes were very effective--I think it's going to be an awesome muscle building routine.

I'm pretty much in just-get-by mode. I'm hopeful for the future, but getting tired of living there instead of in the here & now.

I am so sorry Laura! It's so hard when the kiddos are sick -just drains your energy.

Hang in there, it will get better eventually!!

And, BTW, I hate being a whiner. I almost didn't post anything today--I feel like a broken record lately. But it's my blog & I'll whine if I want to. Still, I do appreciate it if you took the time to read & comment.

Sorry about Sophie. I hate that poopy/throw-up virus when the kids get it. (I used to lay out beach towels from their room te through the hall to the bathroom . . . can sneak up on you). Poor baby.

I hope you get your run tonight.
