Therapy Thursday

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I am home today with Bean - he has been running a fever for two days - on an antibiotic - and just plain feeling poorly. Bug went to school today - he was home yesterday with a slight fever, but he is better today. DH stayed home with them yesterday, so today is my turn. At least I am only missing half a day of work, as that is all we work on Thursdays.

I made the decision last night to sleep in this morning. I knew my body and mind needed the rest. We were on-call yesterday and it was crazy busy - over 9 hours on the phone with sick people would stress anyone out, and I was stressed to the max.

Last night though, I tried something different to combat the stress...I sat and rocked Bean to sleep. It was wonderfully comforting to hold a warm baby (OK-OK-toddler) in my arms and watching him sleep.

Even though I slept in this morning, I will get my workout done this afternoon.

Bean and I will go shopping this morning, come home, eat lunch, and then he is down for a nap, and I am down the basement doing my abs training and W2D3 of the C25K on the treadmill.

Food is planned just like I would be going to work.
Exercise is planned.
R&R is planned.

I do believe that this unexpected day off is just the therapy I needed.

Have a Sparktastic Day Friends.

    Nothing like having an armful of baby to soothe the soul and put everything in perspective.
