Well good morning, friends! It’s friday, that means it’s time for our coffee date! It also means it is the 4th morning in a row I’ve stayed home with Poor Payt. She is definitely getting better it is just taking for-freaking-ever. I usually coach the 5am class on Fridays but Chris took it for me since we weren’t sure how Payt would be feeling this morning. I went in to check on her around 6 (normal mornings we are up by 5:30am and at the gym by 6) and she was still wheezing and so out of it. So I let her sleep. Until she popped up around 7 and wanted a shower. and peanut butter and jelly. and disney junior. And of course I’m a softie and give into her every whim when she’s sick… so I’m currently resisting the urge to pull my ear drums out from Disney Junior overload….
Anyway, if we were having coffee I would tell you I feel like I’m the one that has been sick, It is more mentally exhausted taking care of a sick kid than it is to actually be sick myself. I know many parents have it much worse, but this is hard for me! Especially still trying to take care of everything else. I feel like I’ve been absent from CrossFit for most of the week, even though we’ve been there for a little bit most of evenings. My training has been far more relaxed this week. I squeeze in a WOD or a strength set here or there, but not near what I normally do. It’s just a part of parenthood, I suppose.
If we were having coffee today I’d tell you I’m drinking out of the Disney Mug in celebration of our upcoming Disney Cruise. I’ve never been on a cruise before, but I’m SO excited. Adventures opened up this week and I’m already dreaming about my fire & ice pedicure, swimming with the dolphins, and parasailing! I even have a countdown going on my phone.
Can’t come soon enough.
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
