Where o where have I been? Oh let’s see.
Last week, was clearly not keen on a ghost from my past trying to show its face. It wasn’t even Halloween… Again my apologies.
I also recently posted that I am trying to lose weight. So, I dusted off my Wii fit and decided to slowly ease into trying to get a bit more flexible, etc.
My back went out after two ten-minute sessions two days apart. *Sigh*
I also played a Trivial Pursuit with the hubs which caused leaning over and that might have been it too.
Sore back, no worries, have been there before.
My 8 year old complained Saturday of a tummy ache. I watched what he ate and all seemed well. Fast forward to Monday Morning. My 11 year old complains of upset stomach. I myself had some intestinal discomfort, I assured him it would pass, as mine did the night before. He would be fine, just take it easy.
I get a text seven minutes after he left for the bus, “I can’t take it, please come get me.”
I am thinking he is trying to get out of a Monday at school. I begrudgingly head to the bus stop. When I arrive, he is doubled over and puking. In front of all of his friends and a gaggle of High School kids.
In lieu of all Mother of the year awards, I will take a swift kick in the ass.
Because that is what I felt like, an ass.
Apologizing the ENTIRE way, I take care of him until around 1pm. That was when I started puking my guts out. And then again until 4pm when my Husband started puking HIS guts out.
So today is the first day since Saturday I have felt remotely human. We all seem to have flown past this fall’s inevitable stomach bug, (KNOCK ON WOOD x Infinity) and have come out the other end. No pun intended.
My back is still dicey, but I am sitting here typing so that says something about my pending full recovery.
I also made banana bread, and updated the 4 year old pictures on our electronic picture frame thing. I did this to update but mostly I am sick of seeing my formerly slim self. (Of which I might add, I thought I needed to lose weight then. Not so much.)
So, I am still on soup and bland foods and am hoping if nothing else this little adventure into hurl-land will help me get off the path of carbs, fried foods, etc. and spring board me back onto healthier eating, if nothing else by default. A diet re-set button of sorts.
Tomorrow Halloween. Another post altogether.
Tricks, Treats, and All that good stuff,
