Oh gosh, I have so many blog posts in my head, and just haven't been getting around to finding the time to actually come and sit and write them!
We've been through a rough time again (still!!!) with us all being ill. Since the stint two months ago when we all had terrible coughs, I never really got completely better, have had a constant cough. Then Mia started two weeks ago with a bad cough, coughing terribly at night, sometimes only for an hour, sometimes for two, and then a few nights where she didn't stop coughing the whole night!!
After going through numerous bottles of different cough mixtures and anti-histamines, I eventually took her to the paed last week Thursday. So she's on antibiotics again, and I'm so terrified that it causes vomiting like it did in June... her tummy is already upset. The paed reckons I must give the probiotic supplement an hour after giving her the antibiotic and that's what would make all the difference in her getting sick from the antibiotics... So let's see...
Then Ella started with a cough on the weekend too. Poor baby.
We go on our White River Pine Lake holiday this Friday!!! Gosh this has snuck up on us so quickly! I'm not ready yet at all, need to still make my pack list and pre-holiday to do list and shopping list, eeeek!
My weight loss mission is at a bit of a stand-still at the moment... I am eating quite well, bar the ever-present glass of vino and piece of Lindt chocolate... And I'm not going to the gym much at all, I've either been sick or else too busy with kiddies, clients, home stuff, etc. I have, however, been trying to fit in some body weight exercises as much as I can: squats, lunges, planks, push ups, and kettlebell exercises. I know I should do more, but at least it's something and not nothing at all!
I feel anxious and overwhelmed by the way that I have so much in my head that I'm wanting to do and just not getting around to. My usual excitement for the festive season, this year, is bordering more on a feeling of neurotic frenzied insanity! I am behind in all my usual craft-activities that I do with Mia, I owe visits to friends who had babies recently and I haven't even met them yet, I hate how cluttered my house is feeling.
Ella is growing up so fast it's crazy, I'm trying so hard to savour these moments of babyhood because it's just passing in the blink of an eye.
Definitely need to calm down, get myself organised and procrastinate less...
This holiday is coming just at the right time!
