Ready to be healthy
I made it. I didn't want to miss my not writing already for my new year resolution. This week seems like a blur to me. I began feeling rather sick on Saturday. I thought it was just because Laura kept me awake most of Friday night.
By Saturday night, after a full day of playing, Jeff told me to lay down in bed. It felt good to just lay down and watch Love it or List it. I think I dozed off 5-10min. After feeling better, I came out and Jeff made me dinner. We watched tv after putting the kids to bed.
I slept ok but my throat was scratchy. I taught prep anyway and almost lost my voice a few times. I planned on taking it easy the rest of the day but Laura and I were busy. Jeff took the tree down and before I knew it, 8pm was here. The next day was early wake up because Jeff and Laura went back to school.
On Monday, I felt weaker and draining. But I pushed through with playgroup and errands. Jeff let me relax that night again and had an earlier bed time. I took nighttime medicine and slept too good that I didn't want to wake up.
I was really out of it Tuesday. My energy level was about a zero and everyone said I didn't look very good. I slept during the day which never happens. My nose was stuffy and just felt miserable. That night I managed to help with homework but after dinner, I went straight to bed. I slept 8-5 straight then off and on til 6:30.
I felt immediately better on Wednesday. My attendant was relieved because I worried her. My student came and I did good teaching. Toward the end of the day I was sleepy but nothing like before. Last night Laura told me to email her teachers to request more homework. Silly girl.
My husband was a great help to me. I often push and push myself until he says go lay down. When he says he has it, I believe him. The house was clean, kids fed and I felt comforted. I'm sitting here now with the kids as he studies. I think, if nothing else, our marriage represents teamwork. We pick up where the other leaves off and plays to our strengths.
I'm still not great yet, but getting there.
