That stomach bug just won’t give up! It made the rounds again this week – this time to my other son. It’s very sneaky – you get sick for just a short time and then think you’re better – then it comes back! He was home 2 separate days. After my bout last week, I couldn’t stand the thought of food for a week – lost 5 pounds!
Needless to say not a lot got done this week. Since I became a stay at home mom, I’ve had new respect for those mothers who must balance work and children. Trying to start a home-based business with the kids getting sick and staying home from school nearly every couple of weeks makes me think even more about how working moms must struggle. I don’t know if this has been a particularly bad school year for illness or if now that I have another objective for my time that it seems that much worse. Their health and comfort obviously takes precedent over my ambitions, especially since I don’t expect to feed the family from them! But it’s only the 17th – I might still make my goal to have something by the end of the month.
