Yesterday I sat around feeling unwell and sorry for myself, feeling like I was wasting my life watching TV and playing with my iPhone. I did NOT take extraordinary care (as Sean puts it) with looking after my diet or water intake. Tim was pretty much better and looked after the kids and the cooking etc.
Today I am feeling mostly better, Tim is back at work, Jasmine has a bit of a cough but is otherwise fine, Aiden didn't even get sick at all, so we're back to real life. (Edit: by evening Aiden had got the runny nose, so here we go again.) Two weeks of winter school holidays have started. The weather is cold and miserable so it's strictly indoor activities. Today we kept it to a big grocery shopping trip and the kids have been fine entertaining themselves at home. But I'll have to start thinking of things to do! There are two good-sounding animated movies on at the moment, so that will fill... several hours. Hmmm... the indoor trampoline park, the library, the awesome but expensive motorised go-cart track, the science museum, the dinosaur museum... we'll find something.
Mental health: Ok.
I need to finish shaking off this illness, but in the meantime stop using that and having the kids home as excuses to eat poorly! It was only a week ago that I was using my glucose intolerance as motivation. That health issue hasn't gone away!
