Ugh. This past week was so hard. I’ve been sick since last Friday (not this past Friday, the 22nd, but since the Friday before, the 15th), and I’m still waiting for the health fairy to come take my sick away.
Keeping up with this blog, the house, my job, the kids, and the millions of other things that crop up in a week is hard enough. Doing so when sick is impossible.
Okay, so things aren’t as bad as the list above… and the electronics are always simultaneously running anyway. But I get this amplification affect when I’m sick where everything seems ten times worse than they really are. Come to think of it, it happens around that special time of month too. Hmm.
I’m not always the most organized person, but you can always tell when I’m sick, or so busy the house suffers.
When I’m sick it looks like a pharmacist took up residence with us and is illegally selling Dayquil to meth heads.
Then there’s the rest of the kitchen.
I couldn’t bring myself to take pictures of the rest of the house. Being more adventurous and trying new things is one thing. Letting everyone see just how badly my mail needs sorting and my floors need cleaning is another!
My poor family has been living off frozen burritos and pizza the last week while I tried to keep broth down. We did go to a family dinner the other night, and I thought I was on my way to feeling better. But after a busy workday on Tuesday, and then trying to go grocery shopping (Why did I think I was up for that?), I quickly realized I’m not quite on the mend as much as I thought I was. Before anyone starts calling me, panicking, I am on the mend. It started out as the stomach flu and turned into a really bad sinus infection, but I am getting better. It’s just taking FOREVER!
It’s so frustrating when my mind is focusing on all the things I want to do, but my body just can’t. I’ve given myself post deadlines of Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. And I’ve been keeping up with that ever since I opened my blog for public viewing. Admittedly that hasn’t been very long, but it’s still something I’ve been proud of. But because I haven’t felt very well, we’ve finally reached today; where I’m scrabbling for a topic because my post on the pros/cons of keto isn’t done and I know I won’t be able to give it the attention it needs in time for my deadline. Ugh! I don’t have time to be sick, dammit!
So, here you are, looking at my messy house and reading about my chaotic life. Well…this is Jess’s Mess.
So I hope you don’t mind me venting a little. And hopefully I’ll find the time, and energy, to work on the pros/cons post in time for Friday. Until then…
Please don’t mind the mess… um, literally.
If you enjoyed this post, I’d be grateful if you’d help me by emailing it to a friend, or sharing it on Twitter or Facebook. Thank you!
