Well May has to be one of the worst months in my history books. My family and I were attacked by the Norovirus TWICE! That is cruel punishment. I can honestly say that luckily the second time around was a bit easier in the most important ways but worse than others. My son was sick on Sunday before Memorial Day, then my husband was sick the following day then, my stomach was upset all through the week and then I had the virus on Friday through Saturday night but I had Zofran. Yaaaay!! I can't think of anything worse than vomiting and this time I refused to let it happen.
Our poor kid had to go to the emergency room. He only had mild dehydration but that's where the zofran came from. Yeah, I took his meds, only because he was better of course!
I have lost a good bit of weight because of this virus and my taste buds have been all over the place. Out of no where I've grown an aversion to chicken. I mean not all forms of chicken, but I kinda hate it unless its a fried nugget which we both know isn't a good idea. So I don't know how I'm going to deal with that. I dunno, its just now I'm trying to find ways to eat it hidden. Like chicken and dumplings or soup or fried. LOL! I'm just over baked and grilled and even poached seems gross lately. I can still eat it but its not the star of my meal I guess which doesn't make eating easier.
Despite all that I'm really ready to try again. I think these viruses have made me just want to be healthier because I feel if I'm going to get this sick, it might be easier to deal with as a lighter weight or maybe I'd bounce back easier. I'm not sure but food doesn't seem so high priority when you've spent days without eating. So I'm going to work on tracking my calories again. I'm going to try and get in more water and cut out the sugary beverages.
Joey this month has become impossible some days. He has meltdowns all the time. And I'm talking yelling, kicking, spitting, crying, can't breathe meltdowns. We're working on a regular routine of wake up times and naps. Its tough when I'm up late like this working on eBay but I know that if I can't get him rested regularly, it might clear this up some. We're just trying to be positive about it.
It's getting hot here in GA and I'm craving beach time. I don't even care how I look in a swimsuit, usually because its covered in shorts and a shirt. I just can't wait til my next beach outing. The water feels wonderful!
I'm also a little disappointed in myself. We way overspent this month and blew through our savings. We had gone from 380 to 800 down to 100. It's clearly irresponsible of us and my sales haven't been nearly good enough to get those numbers back so I don't know what we're going to do right now. Are we better than before? Yes. I haven't used my credit cards nearly as much. Once or twice. So the amounts are going down but we aren't even close to having one paid off because our steady income only takes care of the minimums. It was my fault because I messed up on finances. I won't make that mistake again!
So now on to June. I hope its a bit better.
