I’d like to put in a complaint to the universe. I keep getting sick and I’ve had enough! I feel like I haven’t had more than a few days in a row well in 6 weeks or more. I’m not sure if I’ve had several different bugs or if it’s just the same one recurring on me, I suspect the latter. I know my Grandma and my mum’s twin sister have both had a pretty nasty one that hung on for about two months. I’ve spent the entire school holidays with something that ranged from full-on aches and fevers to a mild headache and persistent cough and then back to fevers and nausea. Adam carried pretty much the full load of housework and kid-wrangling despite not being entirely well himself.
I’m in bed this afternoon with the dog, Adam came home early from work to look after the kids because after I dragged myself out of bed at lunchtime and went to do the grocery shopping I ended up sitting in the car shivering. I did manage to drive my mum and her sister to the station, pick up the kids and cook the beef goulash for dinner before I retreated but I still feel like that’s not enough and I’m all useless and stuff. It’s so bloody frustrating.
And speaking of the dog, she lured me outside before I went shopping today and tried to get me to chase her around the yard, I just couldn’t come at running and even a brief bout of tug-of-war left me gasping for breath. I haven’t been able to take her for decent walks on a regular basis for weeks, poor puppy.
So yeah, enough already hey? I want the headache gone, the tummy behaving, my sinuses clear and no more keeping myself awake at night coughing.
And while you’re at it universe, how about fixing my procrastination problem and my kids’ refusal to accept responsibility for their own mess.
Not too much to ask surely?
