So Tired: A day in the life of a sick Mommy
I have been hit by the cold bug and with it laryngitis. It is not fun. All I want to do is lay around and watch t.v., sleep, or read. The house and my little guy have totally different ideas. Things we have done today since today was a no school day: 6:15am Charles wakes up. 6:20- Feed Charles, change his diaper, and brush his teeth. I eat after he is finished and take my medicine. 7:00-8:00am watched Curious George 8:00-9:30 Play toys with Charles 9:30 He decides he wants a snack 10:00am watch 1 episode of Dinasour Train (PBS is Charles favorite channel) 10:30-11:00 Play some more. I am ready to collapse and wish he would have taken a morning nap. 11:00 I eat a little lunch which Charles wants to try some peasse(his version of please). I also decide I need a break from PBS and watch Rachel Ray. Yes, a lot of t.v. for one day but what can I do--I can't talk and I feel rough. 12:00 Feed Charles his lunch. 12:30-3:00 Charles naps!!! CUE: angles singing in my head because I am ready to drop. I finally get to nap from 1-3. 3:00-4:00 I feel even worse. I sit on the couch and watch Charles play. Then I start looking for soup because something warm on my throat sounds nice. 4:00 Give up the search and decide I must brave the 29 degree weather and go to the store. 4:15-5:00 Picking up groceries 5:00 Feed Charles Supper. He decides he doesn't want to drink his milk so we put it up for later. 5:45 I get to eat some chicken noodle soup. 6:30 It is medicine time for both of us. Oh I forgot to mention the doctor put Charles on medicine too. 6:30-7:00 Watch Big Bang while Charles plays and come back and forth bringing me toys. I'm sure he wonders what happened to my voice. 7:00 Give Charles his milk and brush his teeth. 7:30- Take him upstairs and get him ready for bed: Diaper change, read a story from his picture Bible and say prayers. Thankful he went down without crying. 8:00-8:45 On pinterest and checking out blog updates. 8:45 I decide to bore you all with my day. You are very welcome. It is 9:15 and I am going to bed!
