It is a very good thing I went on a Blogcation last week. Not because I necessarily got any rest or relaxation... no.. last week was HORRIBLE. I had a sinus infection, bronchitis, pinkeye, and Atticus was teething and vomiting from sticking his fingers down his throat.
Picture this.... Monday I was sent home from work due to a violent cough (yay sinus infection turned bronchitis). I woke Tuesday morning with my right eye swollen shut from pinkeye. I resolved to stay home in bed and sleep while the kids were at school. Then Atticus puked.
There I was, lumbering around the house. Coughing. Right eye shut. Nose running. Unshowered. One or both boobs hanging out from constant nursing. Chasing a gleeful toddler who discovered a penchant for vomit. Tuesday afternoon was a bit better; after Atticus napped and I read Charles Dickens with one eye open Atticus and I played. He is quite fond of "line things up on the window sill" game.
Things looked better after Tuesday. Mostly because I tried to rest. I read a little on Wednesday afternoon. I skipped my knitting group to go to bed early on Thursday. I took Friday off and spent time with Hope (she was out on holiday), exercising, stitching, and napping. I napped on Saturday and then enjoyed Hope's birthday party. Sunday it was back to work. Not a lot of reading, but a whole lot of tea, exercise, and napping.
Okay. This week WILL be better. I did, however, finish the softies for Atticus' class. I made 8 (one for Atticus and then one for each of his classmates). I didn't get them done until Friday as I thought it best to not stitch things for toddlers whilst suffering from pinkeye.
On to a new week, filled with cautious optimism.
