It’s been quite the week. We went to the grocery store EIGHT times! The reason for the craziness has been illness. It went something like: Kid gets a cold, Parent 1 then gets a cold; kid develops horrendous GI virus a few days later (middle of the night, of course) while Parent 1 now has painful cough. Parent 2 then gets horrendous GI virus, but worse than Kid!
It’s been a week of buying Pedialyte, Kleenex — anywhere, any price — and overpriced bottles of 7-Up at the check out because of fatigue. It was too far to walk the whole store!
It’s rare for me to do laundry outside time-of-use-rates, but all bets are off this week.
One small victory, and I mean very small… I made rhubarb muffins from last year’s rhubarb. I also won a really neat picnic bag and two pounds of Starbucks “limited edition” coffee during teacher appreciation week.
My other accomplishment this week was decluttering some of the English home magazines I tend to not want to let go of. My mom is going to England soon so maybe a fresh supply will come my way. It was a good feeling to take care of a pile while I was keeping sick people company on the couch.
I hope we are through our rough patch and next week will be easier. I plan to come up with some mild, light dinners for the coming week to ease everyone back into eating, and our Flylady zone is the Kitchen for next week. With a little luck, we can get our grocery shopping back to normal!
