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!


  1. So sorry you're not feeling well, Jennifer! Hope by the time you read this you're back in tip-top shape!

    But, wow, you're right...what a great kiddo you've got there! How wonderful that he just took care of everything and let you should be very proud of him!

  2. Well I'm glad you're feeling better this evening even if it's not all the way.

    I've had too many of that kind of day lately; let's blame it on global warming, shall we?

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon. When I read you were UP at 530 I was shocked!!! I know you love sleep as much as I do! What an amazing son you have. Can I borrow him?????

  4. Would you quit "aggabating" your daughter already...LOL that is hilarious.

    Way to go CJ. My girls are the same way. They can have their bickering moments, but when it all comes down to it they adore each other.

    Glad you're feeling better.

  5. feel better soon!

    kuddos to cj...and ruthi for giving mom a break!

  6. What a sweet son you have...
