Recovering

So you know how I said Ben wasn't feeling good on Saturday (conveniently) while I was busy unpacking? He apparently legitimately had a stomach bug of some sort, because he gave it to me. And apparently, he had picked it up from someone at work last week. Phooey. And because I was so stressed out from the moving stuff, my immune system was weakened and I got it good yesterday. I started feeling bad around 8:30 before taking the kids to school, and by 11:15 I had put Connor down for a nap and gone to bed myself. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't stay away more than about 30-45 minutes straight for the rest of the day, so I basically slept from 11:15 am yesterday to about 6:15 this morning with some minor interruptions. And though Connor did demolish the family room around me yesterday, he couldn't actually do any damage to himself while I was dropping in and out of consciousness. And then because I barely ate (or drank) anything yesterday, I almost passed out in the shower twice this morning! What were the chances??

I think I've caught up on my sleep now.

Take time to get to feeling better...when you plan something like this...add a fudge factor..to take care of Illness...etc...

Remember as you get OLDER...you do not have as much energy and ability to do things as fast...

Go out and smell the roses...

Take Care....

Do you want me to punish Dad in some really inventive way for that "older" remark? I can do it you know. Drink lots of fluids today and save the hard work until Saturday. Love
