Sick ... very sick

I woke up yesterday not feeling right ... and while I suffered through the morning taking the girls on a very big field trip that meant no break or nap at home, I managed to be OK. Then, at 2, when we got home and they were ready to play, I wasn't. All I could do is lay on the couch and close my eyes.

I made sure to open my eyes often enough to make sure they weren't doing anything too crazy. The house was a wreck and I managed to barely feed them dinner. Standing resulted in me feeling very, very sick to my stomach.

I slept most of the night and am now up, but barely. I am not even well enough to read your comments from yesterday. Boo-hoo!

I am looking forward to your responses, though. And learning more!

Thank you for visiting today.

This is the only time I don't feel guilty about letting Baby Einstein babysit, when even standing isn't an option. Hope you are feeling better by the minute and getting rest! xoxox

I hope you're feeling better soon.

And I just read the coupon/frugal living post below. I'm going to go check out that blog. I don't know whether I could get down to $35.00 a week, but doing things like going specifically to Karns for meats has allowed us to eat meat again; of course, as gas prices go up, traveling to two different stores for a full grocery order might not be practical, but for the time being, it's working.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather. I've done the laying on the couch & closing my eyes trick. It works, when you need it. Not as restful as having someone else to watch the kiddos, but when you don't have that option, it'll do. Rest, feel better soon.
