Calling in Sick

As my husband left for work this morning I said, "I could really use a sick day today."  We both laughed.

Mamas don't generally get sick days.  Oh well.  We press on.

I have had tougher new born nights.  But it's been awhile since we have had sleepless nights so when one pops up it can really throw me off.  Three hours of laying awake and tending to a restless baby don't make for a restful night.  It's not that I am just not feeling well but neither is Miss L or Miss A.  Although, I think Miss A is doing better than the other two ladies in this household.

However, appointments must be kept, meals must be made, training to continue (with added dose of grace when all are sick), medicine to be dispensed, naps to look forward to, and more.

I am wiped out.  I had hoped to write about weeks two of new habits but I am not feeling the motivation.  It feels like Friday and we still have the whole week to go.  I had grand ambitions for today but we are barely getting the basics done today.

We're sick.

And that's okay.  Bodies need rest.

To those that are in far worse shape than we are... we are praying health and strength for you this day as well.

  1. I'm sorry you guys are all under the weather. Elliot has been sick as well and was awake from 3a-4:45ish and yes, it really threw me off being awake now that I am use to sleeping through the nights again, but I am thankful I am not sick. I will be praying for you and your family.
