I take my hat off to single parents. Especially when they’re unwell. So in one way I guess you could say that right now I am taking my hat off to myself.
As day 3 comes to an end my head is stuffed, my body aches and all I really want is to stay in bed all day. But no. Today I have taken Anakin out to lunch to temporarily ease our cabin fever, cooked us a big vegan mexican meal, done laundry, dishes, vacuumed and given my little man a haircut. You gotta do what you gotta do, right? The only thing I have not done is any work. When Anakin sleeps, I sleep too, or at least rest. Work will simply have to wait until my face isn’t full of all things gross.
Anakin at least seems to be feeling somewhat better than I am. He’s still not top-notch and requires more tender love and care than usual, but who doesn’t when they’re not well. And we did end up with another night of co-sleeping midway through last night, a bit more successful this time.
Tomorrow, sick or not, we’re going to the zoo! I can’t wait to see the look on Anakin’s face when he sees the animals. I’m excited!
