Hey baby, I appreciate you spending so much time chatting with me yesterday when I was on duty. I don’t know if you enjoyed it, but I did immensely! I miss being able to do that kind of thing.
I got my picture taken. I take horrible official photos, but it is better than the one I took last year, so I guess that is something. I got back here and talked to you for a bit and then went to sleep. I think I crashed pretty hard! Which I guess I needed. I woke up not too long ago and was starving. I wanted something fresh since I have been eating pasta or soup or some variation seemingly forever. So I got a sub with a LOT of veggies on it and now I am back being with you and writing this.
I am puzzled by what I can do to take some of the stress off of you. I hate that you are stuck there again. Taking care of things again and I would like to find a way to help. I have been thinking and not really coming up with too much that was useful. Which sucks. But there HAS to be something I can do!!
Concerns with Recommendations:
I am concerned with the kids not doing anything and as a result you getting the shaft and more sick. The kids like to think that they do a lot and they do I guess (school, job, brother/sister and house stuff), but they are missing that they have to do stuff at home too. Otherwise, the whole house would look like M’s room when she has let it go for a month. I don’t know how to get the point across to them that a clean and organized house is key to a healthy mom and a happy mom (and everyone else). I am no neat freak by any means, but having things at least KIND of organized is a huge help. You would think J would be on board with that, sigh. I sound like I am just bitching now and I don’t mean to. I guess I will have to think more on that one too.
Wishes, Hopes & Dreams:
I hope you are feeling better today. I bet you are going to have to mark the lasagna leftovers or else J is going to nibble them away! I wish I were home waking up with you right now. I love you and miss you!
