Well I… well, I was going to tell someone I’d be willing to pick up the slack on some of those memes now that I have a blog that can actual host linky widgets but I don’t know if I’ll have the time to really keep up with it. Sitting here back at work for the first time since the 21st of December, I realize just how insane my life is going to be very soon. The University begins again on Monday, my face to face class, Tuesday. I finish up one online class next week and begin a new one, along with another course for another school. On top of of all that, there’s a lot I want to do for the kids this semester, mostly helping Elliot to conquer reading, which I thought he’d be doing already.
While I’m… admitting things, I had a hell of a morning. Felt fine – flu-wise – all the way until about ten minutes from work. And then it struck: nausea. And the thing is, I know it’s not from the flu. Because I’m about 8 weeks pregnant. I had had some morning sickness already but this was particularly bad and I tell you, there may be no worse thing than an impending hurl while driving. I found a little baggie that had contained a Chik-Fil-A toy and used it, but sadly, it did have a hole in it. Sigh. I had to high-tail it into the work bathroom and see what I could do about my jeans. It’s not bad, just really lame. It’s not my first rodeo here and yet, that was a major fail.
Because of this and having been sick, I have not been working out at all. I feel crappy about it and crappy because of it. I can’t wait to regain a little energy so I can at least use the elliptical again. The flu had me on my ass so badly that I couldn’t do a thing, seriously. I lost track of time and things and had no idea when are where we all were. Which is such a bad way to be! I always say, moms can’t get sick. And it’s true.
I’m just trying to get my life back on track here. Hoping this weekend will see to that. Though, I did get all my Christmas decorations put away yesterday and got cleaning done. I felt so darn good about it. In fact, I even tried to take a nap but couldn’t because I was too riled up to clean. Crazy, right?
Well, there you have it. I’m going to try to get organized in my office before our Spring meeting, which always unsettles me a little, even though I talk to these folks all the time. Have a good weekend!
