This weekend was a rough one for me. I came down with some kind of terrible cold. I also ended up losing my voice so that creates a lot of challenges when trying to talk to children.
I ended up staying home from work after a rough night that included coughing, chills, nausea, and a headache. Thankfully the chills and nausea were just in the middle of the night and went away quickly but the cough lingered.
I got up at 5:30, helped get the boys ready and out the door, and went back to bed a little before 7am. I ended up sleeping until 10:30! I tried to get some food in me and rest. I ended up going back to bed at 1pm and slept until 2pm.
Once the boys got home I had to be on my toes a little bit more but was still able to rest quite a bit.
Once the boys went to bed, I took a nice hot epsom salt bath and went to bed too.
I still wasn’t feeling the greatest but was able to get some good sleep. Joe went out hunting in the morning so it was me and the boys for a while. They did good playing together and individually while I laid low. Liam even did some “hunting” of his own.
When the boys went down for nap, so did I. I ended up sleeping for over 2 hours.
Then Joe was heading back out to the woods. The boys weren’t as well behaved in the evening as they were in the morning. Honestly, they both got away with more things than usual since my voice just wasn’t working and the energy wasn’t there. But we survived!
We tried to keep the boys up a little later because of daylight savings, but not matter my plan it never works. Owen was exhausted and only was up about 30 minutes longer and same with Liam.
I was off to bed shortly after them.
Joe stayed home from hunting and got up with the boys bright and early. Liam was up at 5 and Owen 5:30 (thanks a lot daylight savings!). I was able to sleep until 6:30am which was super nice.
I was going stir crazy so I ended up cleaning the house quite a bit during Owen’s first nap.
I also needed a refill on my asthma medicine. I ended up going to urgent care to get a prescription. It took FOREVER but I was able to get my medications and will hopefully kick this cough soon!
Liam went down for nap early so he was up shortly after I returned home. Joe was going to take him hunting for the first time at the hunting land in Cumberland. Liam was so excited. His cousin Luke and Uncle Joel were going too.
They left and Owen was still napping. I did some laundry and then sat down and watch The Holiday Calendar on Netflix (typical Christmas movie). Owen continued napping the entire movie! Tired boy!
When he got up he was confused about where everyone was but quickly adjusted to having free-reign of all the toys. He and I had a lot of fun hanging out together one-on-one.
Joe and Liam got home and Liam told me about all the fun they had hunting.
It was a very restful weekend for me and although I am not 100% I am on my way to feeling better! Have a great week!
