Today I am extremely grateful for my husband and my mom!

London was sick with the stomach flu Sunday/Monday and I seriously thought I was going to avoid it... Until yesterday. 

I woke up feeling blah. I was nauseous, exhausted and just not myself. I managed to get in my 5 mile run and go to work and took a gravol to try and settle things. I spent the morning in court covering a trial but by 11 I was hurting. My boss came to pick me up and told me I looked horrible and should go home. I said I was fine. Fast forward half an hour, a bathroom trip, and I was in my car heading home.

I spent the next 30ish hours in bed and the bathroom. I was quarantined from my boys because I didn't want them to get sick. Thankfully, my mom was here to bring me water and gingerAle and check on me. Jarod handles daddy duties solo.

I had a horrible night and was sick all morning today. I ended up sleeping away the afternoon. I started to sort of feel like myself again around 5 and decided, because I'm stupid, to run a verrrry slow mile to keep my running streak alive! Yes, I know this was dumb and if I wasn't just 22 days away from my year goal I would have called it quits! It was the longest mile of my life. I finished the run (jog) and the boys got home. Jarod had taken London to Kindermusik for me! They had fun but London doesn't seem to click with the teacher and prefers playing on his own. 

While the boys had pasta I managed to down some chicken soup (about a 1/4 cup) and a few crackers and we spent the rest of the night on the couch. 

Jarod was a rock star and I'm so lucky and thankful to have him!

He is at hockey tonight so I just finished putting London to sleep. My stomach is still a little off bit I'm hoping to be able to make it to work tomorrow. There's no one else to replace me and we are short staffed as it is! 

Am I the only one who feels guilty when they're off work? 

So happy to hopefully be on be mend!! I haven't felt this sick in years!!

PS I am not pregnant for anyone wondering lol!

  1. I always feel guilty when I'm not at work. But this week I was feeling guilty being at work when Liam was sick. I just can't win!

    Glad you are feeling better.
