I’m thankful that my little Swee’pea II is feeling better today. He was vomiting for three days – some terrible stomach bug – but the vomiting has stopped, thank God! Doesn’t he look like a little Cupie doll?
Well, I didn’t fall asleep until after 3:00 this morning, so I was exhausted. This menopause is killing me. I may start to fall asleep and suddenly my heart will start to race and sometimes I break out into a sweat and other times I don’t. I am so tired of this! I just had another one – one good thing is when my heart starts racing, I know the flash is coming and I have about 30 seconds to start tearing off my socks and sweaters.
So, I finally fell asleep on the downstairs couch and slept until 10:00 AM. I read for a while and then had my annual feast of chocolate chip apple pie for breakfast. I then read for a few more hours and then Daughter and I took a brisk walk around the neighborhood for about 30 minutes. We had some leftovers for lunch and then I slipped into a tryptophan nap and slept deeply for 3 hours!
Hub was at work which was a great thing. For some reason I can’t completely relax when he’s home and I think it’s because he feels guilty when he isn’t doing something. I could be laying on the couch, wrapped in a cozy blanket and reading a great book and he’ll take one look at me and then say, “Do you want to go to Home Depot with me?”. If I say no, he looks so disappointed and then I feel guilty and then there goes my relaxing day. So, I was very happy that he was working today!
So, today was a very relaxing day. I deserved it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now…if I can just figure out how to get my grandchildren up here for Christmas…
