Trying to be sick...



My body is trying to be sick right now and there's just no time for that and I don't want to make time for it! John seems to be the only one to miss this nasty cold/flu this weekend. Lucky him, sorta. We've been wiping snotty noses 24/7 (grossing me out majorly, even tho I'm a mom of 4, I should be used to it) I'm not. 

I don't play the "sick" person very well at all. Maybe it's because I'm the one always taking care of everyone? I don't know how to be sick. I also don't take many naps (maybe 5 a year) and don't like to sit in one spot too long. Maybe my body hates me right now because I was taking a 6am boot camp class 5 mornings a week and still getting up with Mason 3x a night. Working out is my therapy tho, it keeps me sane and gives me the strength to keep up with my brood of boys. But after just 3 weeks of this my body/mind were running on E. Now I'm sitting here this morning doing this... relaxing, catching up on emails, voicemails and blogs, holding a squirmy baby, trying to feel at least 80% again. 

With that being said... I still just couldn't spend an entire weekend dedicated to getting well. So I have our babysitter coming at 1 so John and I can organize the garage. Sounds like a good plan, right?!? We've been putting it off for like 6 months now. I can't stand it anymore. It should be a good time! Maybe I'll still be sick enough to just sit in a chair and point to where I want things moved to :)

I hope everyone starts feeling better soon. It is so hard to be sick when you have to take care of others. My youngest woke up with the stomach flu. I am crossing my fingers it stays isolated to him!

I wish I could come help you!
I hope you feel better soon.
Please take a nap.
Momma's must take time for themselves too!

Big Hugs!

Christa, I always read your blog late at night and wish I could pick up the phone and call you. I know this is from last week so I trust you're much better now. As always, YOU inspire ME.
<3,

OMG girl you are so speaking my language. It was like I wrote this. Sometimes I wonder how I do it as well. I have somehow been going and going with the kids and home with a fractured wrist. They always say us woman need more hands and then poof your down one and it gets real interesting. You think it stops me..nope. Guess I can't get on my Mom anymore when she doesn't listen to doctors or her body etc. Us women just have to keep on going no matter what. It's crazy. And I hear ya about the naps...that's why I can never sit and relax bc if I do I will fall asleep. Not sure how I do it with no caffeine
