Sick and Tired

I just spent the last 7 days in a flu induced haze. It started suddenly with aches and pains and a strange headache that felt like cold fingers wrapping themselves around my brain. The next morning I innocently got up to pee, sat my butt down on the toilet and became so dizzy that I passed out briefly. I remember thinking how bad it would suck if I fell off the toilet and was found on the floor with my bare bum pointed who know's where. Knowing my partner, I'm sure there would be chuckling and possibly pictures to remind me of the occasion. Fortunately, I remained seated safely in position and only ended up falling forwards and clawing at the floor and wall to pull myself back up.

The next few days after that are all a blur really. All I know is that I survived it and managed to look after 3 kids at the same time. Not quite sure how I did it considering I ate nothing and could barely get off the couch, but we're all alive and well!

No one else has been stricken with whatever it was I had so I'm pretty sure it was a partial forced nervous breakdown. I was literally forced to do as little as possible and function on the small amount of clarity I had left. It was like a mini vacation without ANY fun AT ALL combined with a seven day fast - just like those Hollywood starlets do.

Anyway, I'm pretty much back to normal now. I feel refreshed and I've buried the past few horrid months under huge mountains of dirt, stomped fiercely on it to pack it all down and am ready to plant new, happy seeds.

It's time to start thinking about shopping for school supplies and getting myself organized for the new routine that September will surely bring. I'll have 2 kids in school - one full time and one for two half days a week. I'm also working on some new pendant designs for my shop. Here's a sneak peak:





Well, I've got laundry to fold, dishes to put away and hungry little mouths to feed. Hope you're all having a wonderful day. I am!
