My own advice.
Geesh, have I turned into " THAT" person?
Any of the regular spouseBuzz Talk Radio listeners will note I have been sounding very Brenda Vicaroish for the past 2 months. A bout of the more than common pneumonia/bronchitis/influenza of Spring 2008, and now allergies to all that is in bloom. Not fun, the incessant blowing of mucus, and the cough that seems to turn spasmodic when I least expect it. So long the sweet scent of Estee Lauder pleasures delight on my flesh , hello Vicks vapo rub and the greasy aftermath. So long the quiet of the night, hello humidifier. So long the weekly trips to the grocery store, and HELLO buying a gross of tissues every other day.
It is all viral, so frankly other than resting, drinking 2 gallons of water a day, and taking a supplement, not much can be done I am afraid. I decontaminate my children after they are exposed to their peers, but not well enough it seems. So, I am waiting it out, and mucunix and I are on a first name basis.
Let me add here, we are in the middle of a DITY move. And DH is not here. BWWAhahaha. Murphy's law and all of that you know.
The combination of single parenting, invasion of a killer virus, looking for a new home, schools, Physicians, packing and preparing to sell my home has left me...well it is worn me out is my guess.
I am realizing once again I am not Superwoman. (Although I may get the t-shirt to pretend I am on occasion.)
So while making beds and washing breakfast dishes, I stopped for a moment and thought.....
What would you tell anyone else to do?
I would tell them to rest, and that they would be better off taking care of themselves FIRST. The house can always be packed, painted, etc.
What a novel idea.
Oh and I am surrendering and crying out UNCLE here, I get it. I do not need or want any more lessons on Superwoman syndrome.
