That pretty much sums it up...the day I'm having and how I'm feeling.
I woke up this morning at about 5:30. This is not typical for me. Some mornings I will get up and say goodbye to my hubby, but then I go right back to sleep. But this morning, after I saw him off, I sat down at the computer with my cup of coffee. I was quite proud of myself for not going right back to sleep, and was looking forward to a productive day.
Very shortly however, I realized I wasn't feeling very well. Just kind of icky all over, and my stomach wasn't feeling to great.
I managed to make it until about 10:30 and couldn't do it anymore. I was feeling awful. So I went to lie down on my bed. And I fell asleep. A couple of times I could hear CJ whispering to Ruthi. I realized he was looking after her and trying to keep her occupied so I could rest.
Thanks to him, I was able to sleep for a while. I woke up around 1:00 to discover Ruthi had already eaten lunch (courtesy of her big brother) and was playing happily.
I was up, but still not feeling too great. I realized things were very quiet and thought maybe Ruthi had settled down and fallen asleep. But she was in CJ's room and they were watching a movie.
What an amazing son I have! Most days they are driving each other crazy. But when it counts, he really steps up and helps out...even without me asking sometimes! I really am proud of that boy!
So I'm feeling a teeny bit better. I still don't feel great - tired, and kind of icky, and sort of rundown, but I haven't done anything to be feeling rundown, so that doesn't make much sense. And my energy level is super-low today.
But I am so thankful for a wonderful son who can see when his mom needs to rest and takes care of his little sister so I can get that rest!
And on a funny note...I cracked up earlier when Ruthi informed me that sometimes I "aggabate" her! Too funny!
