Since Faith doesn't understand complex directions like "Leave Daddy alone", I tried to keep her busy with going for a walk and then going for fun errands like the bank. I don't know what's wrong with our Navy Federal branch, but they didn't give out lollipops. That's the whole point of going to the bank as a child. Luckily, I always have fruit leathers in my purse, so I was able to keep her reasonably happy as we waited.
|They wouldn't like me when I'm angry|
I intended to run today, but I had a bad night pain-wise (even with painkillers) and then when I tried to run, it was just really painful so I downgraded it to a 2 mile walk instead. I haven't been doing a super job of taking it easy so far this week and it's probably biting me in the butt, or it could have just been the bad night. If I get instructions to rest more at the doctor's appointment tomorrow, I will scale back accordingly.
|Mommy, your problem is probably that you don't stretch enough|
Since I'm an amazing wife, I went out and got my husband soup for lunch. He has the same sore throat virus thing that I had, so I know how much that sucked. Plus, I got lunch for myself so it wasn't totally selfless. I split chicken lo mein with Faith and she went nuts eating it, saying "SO GOOD!" repeatedly, something she has never said about food before. I don't really blame her, it's amazing lo mein.
|Food in take out containers is so much better than what Mommy makes|
I let Faith spend most the afternoon outside playing in the sprinklers. Wearing her out is going to be hard when it gets too cold for water stuff outside. We haven't been able to use the backyard for over a week because the back door is still shattered (but taped up), but now our side lawn looks awesome from the near daily watering.
Faith's patented nursing style seems to have worked and I think my husband is well enough to go back to work tomorrow. I think he might actually find his desk at work to be more quiet and restful than being at home with a toddler.
|Daddy, I'm not hugging you, I'm Tebow-ing|
I now have a theme song for my rib (or gallbladder) issue. I'm embarrassed to admit how many times I've listened to this (it gets in my head!) or how many times I've said "ain't nobody got time for that!" since I first heard it.
What's your go-to food when you are sick? My husband is all about PB toast for breakfast and soups for other meals, but I can't think of anything specific that I like, other than ramen if I feel queasy.
