One foot in front of the other

Last day of March Break.  It all started out very well but has gone downhill this weekend.  Not all has gone according to plan.  I am operating on little sleep. 

Today I am taking care of a very sick little guy who has been tossing all night.  I am taking care of a husband who has come home from a business trip with ear infections and a nasty cold.  I am doing what I can for my MIL who is in hospital with heart issues.  I am entertaining my daughter, who is healthy, as my energy and time permits.  I am figuring out how to make big lifestyle changes for us all so we can be healthier.  I am trying to put more order into our home to reduce the stress that comes with lost papers and too many dishes.  Ack!  I’ve run out of steam. 

I am looking forward to Monday.  Life will get back to “normal”.  Hopefully everyone will be feeling better and no new crises will emerge.  Some days you seem to cope hour by hour, sometimes even minute by minute.  This is one of those days. 


  1. I hear ya. Sorry to hear about Owen, and your MIL. Hope tonight is better (I used codeine and Actifed last night, but I am actually sick). I'm available for tea and sympathy this week.

  2. Sorry the March Break has been a bit of a bust. So frustrating when cold bugs get in the way of plans.

    Hope your MIL gets better soon.

  3. Oh Pam! I feel your pain. Hang in there!!!
