Some days it is okay to take a break from life. Take yesterday for example I had a busy day planned but I spent a rather sleepless light with chills and a headache. The kids weren't feeling good either so I cancelled their dentist appointment for the SECOND time. The first time being when I had jury duty. I think they think I am a total flake.
Every time the kids have a dentist appointment something comes up and I have to reschedule. I hate even calling to do it, but do they want a puking child in their chair. I would think not. I can hear the doubt in their voice as I give them the reason why I have to reschedule. I know it kills their schedule too and for that I feel awful, but hey I did not plan either my kids or me getting sick or jury duty for that matter.
I also did not run yesterday. I wanted to until I tried to do ZWOW #5. I finished it, but I was left feeling so weak and wiped out. So, I gave myself the day off from running. Not even sure why I thought doing the ZWOW workout was a good idea. Some days it really isn't worth it. Especially since it was also raining and really windy. Like really windy.
I also didn't cook anything. Not unless you count toast and reheating leftovers. I was tired, didn't feel very good and just wanted to lay in bed. Since I also had two sick kids I couldn't just lay in bed, but I could minimize how much time I had to spend in the kitchen slaving away. I don't like it on a good day and certainly not when I am sick.
Today I feel so much better and have plans to run. Sadly even though it is my DAY OFF I have to go to work from 10-2 ish for meetings.. Big boo. This will really cut into my me time today. But at least I am feeling better and so are the kids.
My legs are so ready to run! Can't wait!
