Do you want to hear me whine?

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

This week is school vacation and I envisioned taking my children to the park and the movies, and I wanted to drive to the ocean and collect shells and climb on rocks and just hang out with my boyfriend and two girls, but things haven't gone as planned.
Saturday night my smallest was up most of the night throwing up. We didn't go to church the next day. I had several extra blankets and clothes to wash. (sigh)
Sunday night my smallest woke up crying that her head itched. I found lice.
Both my children had lice. So yesterday was spent picking through their hair and doing treatment and collecting bedding and bagging stuffed animals and MORE laundry.(sigh)
Last night, I was up with my oldest. It was her turn to be sick. Oh yeah and my boyfriend spent a lot of Sunday night at the emergency room and is passing kidney stones even as I type this.
SOOOOOOOOOO yesterday, I gained 2 lbs back. (sigh)
I still exercised on the wii except for Sunday.
I am confessing to all you sparkpeople out there that yesterday I ate kraft mac-n-cheese and two ice cream sandwiches. I think I was tired weak and wanted comfort food and my comfort food is pasta and ice cream.
Im thinkig that it is my turn to be sick and hope not. My mother was supposed to take both my children tonight overnight so I could be with my boyfriend with NO children. (sigh)My mother is a school teacher and works very hard so it is rare for her to babysit.
Usually when I fail to do something the way I want to like exercise or eat right, I shrug my shoulders and continue to do what I used to do which is give up completely.
I am not going to do that this time. I realize that all this is just stuff and it will pass and this time I am not alone because I have all of you sparkpeople out there and this blog makes me accountable. (sigh)

    That is a start to a school vacation to remember. Brings back memories of when my kids were younger. I am sure at some point in the future you will look back and laugh just not right now. A one time occurrence of reaching for mac'n cheese or ice cream for comfort is just that. You had it, hopefully it made you feel better and now you can get back on track. I hope everyone starts to feel better and you can enjoy the remainder of time off.

    Roll with the punches. Take the one or two minutes you get now and again and take care of yourself. Good luck, I know how tough it is in your situation.
