Back to Normal-ish

This weekend was busy and tiring. I am one of those people that after a holiday are over I CAN’T WAIT to put the house back to rights again. All the decorations and furniture needs to go back to where it was pre-festivities.

Our ‘Yule’/’Christmas’ tree was the first to come down. We enjoy real trees but the needles! We kept that sucker watered and taken care of all month but the needles were relentless. The tree is now resting behind our garage drying out for our next year’s Yule log burning. I learned about this while attending our first Yule with the kindred. I’m super excited to be able to do this-saving the tree for next year. All the evergreen trimmings and lights were the next to go along with my Christmas village. It was such a breath of relieving fresh air to have the house back to normal again.

This morning my son (poor little guy) came into our room crying about his stomach hurting. You guessed it-he caught the stomach bug. Just when I thought my house was no longer ground zero for this nasty thing it decided to rear its ugly head. It survived my chemical warfare of Lysol and Clorox. My husband has today paid off while I had to come to work. I’m so thankful that he can stay home with our son. He’s even helping clean up our room and house so we don’t go into the next year with procrastinated chores. Tonight, I have some planning to do with writing, trying to nail my 365-day project (also boosts portfolio) and finish developing my simple comic character. I will be ringing in the next chapter of yearly time with a sick little guy, clean house, pizza and hopefully creativity.

Is your house back to normal? What New Year traditions are you gearing up for? Happy Monday Y’all!

Weighing in on Weighing in Post Stomach Bug

I accept it. I accept it. This is my mantra after standing on the scale this morning. After having the stomach bug and only being able to sustain myself with toast, water, mashed taters, and anything else that was soft and starchy-I’m ok with that. I accept the 2lb gain as I couldn’t get on the treadmill and do my 20 minutes, didn’t meet my activity points; I accept the 2lb gain. What I will not accept is the continuation of not using the treadmill and introducing clean foods back into my diet. I’m slowly getting there but my stomach wasn’t quite ready for the sugar snap peas from yesterday.

On the home front, on the other hand, the stomach bug plague is making its way through the family. My husband is just now getting over it and my oldest daughter started sometime in the middle of the night. My youngest son had stomach cramps but my youngest daughter has taken a vow of quarantine until the coast is clear. I will be heading after work for Lysol and Clorox wipes and BOMB the house with chemicals.

Happy Thursday guys!

Being to sick to even drink my coffee sucks! After getting my family through the stomach bug it’s only natural I get it. I managed to get to work through the foot of snow only to get sick. It took all day to write that piece for the #AtoZChallenge because I couldn’t sit up. I’m peck typing this. I would like to say thank you to all my awesome readers. I will get to comments and emails soon.
