I'm Back!

I wish I had an exciting story to explain my blogging absence, but I don't. I was sick. And when Mama's sick, everything goes crazy. I've been out of commission this week and it hasn't been fun for any of us. The weekend was crazy because Hubs was out of town. Then late Sunday night I started feeling really tired and just yucky. I thought it was from running after the kids all weekend. I was wrong.

Hubs had to stay home Monday and Tuesday. Unfortunately, he doesn't get a lot of PTO so he had to take both days unpaid. Yuck! There was no way I could have handled the kids (I could barely get out of bed) so we didn't really have a choice. I actually thought I was better Monday night. But then I was up all night getting sick. By 6am we knew Hubs would have to stay home Tuesday too. It was rough on everyone.

Hubs is not used to so much time with the kids. Patience was wearing thin very quickly. The kids aren't used to Mommy being tucked away in her bedroom all day so they were more difficult than usual. I think Little One had it the worst. I breastfed her as much as I could but since I could barely hold down water, my supplies were low. Now that I'm (sort of) back up and running, she has been a little more clingy than usual.

I still have a headache that just won't stop. But I'm functioning again and I feel worlds better than yesterday or Monday. So that's it. That's why I've been gone for so long. Aren't you jealous?

I was wondering where you were....sorry to hear that the sickies found you. You're right, when Mama's down, nothing is right.

Glad to hear that you are starting to feel better....and that you lived to tell us about your weekend without Hubs. ;-)
