I am sick. Again. I just got over a three-week long virus last week and now have caught S’s cold. Usually, my mom watches M two days a week so I can get stuff done, but she is preparing to have surgery in a couple of weeks and has been instructed to stay away from our germ-fest. So, I don’t have any help during the day.
I have a lot to do. Deadlines I have missed, laundry that needs to be folded, bills that have to be paid. And today, I am cutting myself some slack. I am giving myself permission to not get everything done. I am giving myself permission to feel crappy, write a half-ass blog post, drink some tea and go to bed. Sometimes, as parents, I feel like we don’t give ourselves this sort of permission enough.
There it is. That is all I have for you. Cut yourself some slack sometimes. Goodnight.
