As the sheer exhaustion sets in my shoulders I am left having a hard time feeling thankful at the moment. Which of course means that I need to sit down and thank my lucky stars and get out of my grumpy momma aint had no sleep mood! So here I am writing my Thankfuls in the kitchen out of site of the 2yo. If he sees me then he is going to want me to sit with him and after holding him non stop since Friday, I just can’t. Just can’t.
For those who are not regular’s of the blog my 2yo started having fever on Friday so I had to call in to my new job and stay home with him. Afraid he might have the flu I took him in to the doctor despite the lack of insurance and they didn’t feel the need to test him as he was outside the window for tami-flu. He has been extremely congested, so we did get some good prescription cough medicine with some antihistamine in it. Which means the trip was not a total waste of time or money. (Thankful #1)
The Hubby and I had to cancel our Date scheduled for Saturday night since the boy was sick and I had plans to go to dinner Friday night which he agreed to let me still go. I told him to text me and I would come right home if 2yo needed me at any time but I was glad to get a minute away. Diner was amazing and I haven’t laughed that hard in ages. Two friends and a total of six margaritas between us make Thankful #2,3,4,5,6,7,8, an 9! – Yep that dinner equals 8 thankfuls in one!
Dreading having to call in to work in my first two weeks I texted the boss lady. Her response reminded me that I was in the right place. She said to please not worry and take care of my son! It has been awhile since I have worked in such an understanding environment and for that I am Thankful! ( Thankful #10)
Yes I cheated this week, but it is all I have to give. Did I mention that the 5yo woke up at 2:30am throwing up her insides! yeah this is the other reason for my exhaustion. It’s been a long weekend and I hope you all have had a better one than me! Here is to hoping tomorrow is another day and all kids are well enough to go to school. After this weekend, work will be a vacation!
