|As I typed this, it occurred to me what an odd word Spring is. Think about it. Spring. That's the best we could come up with?|
Welp, two weeks ago I wrote about writing more.
And then life happened.
And by life I mean seasonal allergies.
They happened so much so, in fact, that I wound up with both a sinus AND ear infection. Because apparently adults can still get those.
I swear- since becoming a mother, I have gotten sick more often than I ever did before.
And you know what? It is hella hard being sick as a single mom. If I didn’t have rock star friends who were willing to hang with Little Man while I lay miserably around, I don’t know what I’d do. There are a lot of great people who care about us, and they have come through for me over and over and over again. So shout out to them! Because they are the best. Truly.
|You know who you are.|
My illness reached its peak last weekend, so I decided to tough it out and fly solo during the evenings this week. And, ultimately, I made it work. But man… it was tough. One day in particular I got bad vertigo, which I’ve discovered can be a side effect of ear infections. I also learned it's not as funny as Liza Minnelli makes it seem on Arrested Development. (Learning is so fun- yay!)
Suffice it to say, poor J-Bear had to do a lot of independent play this week. And he maybe had to do a few early bedtimes. Thank goodness he’s (usually) pretty easy going!
So, long story short, I didn’t get a lot of writing done this week. And by that I mostly mean I got none done. I didn’t write at all. I was too busy running through boxes of tissues like a boss.
But I’m starting to get a bit better, so I’m hoping to get back in the groove of things this week.
I still have a few things I want to write about, and I got some really great ideas from you guys! Thanks for that!
And then of course there’s a pretty big life event possibly, hopefully, happening in 20 days. Nbd.
So forgive the absence. All is well. I’ve just been pretty under the weather. If I had to write it as an analogy, I’d say
the depths of the ocean : the sun :: Kaley : the weather
And I’m allowed to be that dramatic about it because I’m the one who’s been sick. (That's how it works, right?
Thanks for sticking with my in spite of my inconsistent writing! Hopefully I’ll have some more exciting things to share soon!
In the meantime... All of you parents out there- how do you make it work when you're sick?? Do you have any tricks that work for you? I could use them for the next bug I catch.
