I can’t get it off my mind.
It’s been a bad week at home.
My son has been sick since Monday. We had our second doctor’s visit yesterday and it’s still a virus. Ears are fine, lungs are fine, throat is fine. He does have a bad cough and a runny nose. They even swabbed him for the flu and that is negative. Just a constant fever and cough and now a rash on his face. All viral. We were sent home with instructions to call on Sunday if the fever is still there.
My husband is now sick as well. His fever hit 103 in the middle of the nigh! It’s now down to 99.9 (they were both 99.9 this morning). So now, I have two sickies to take care of. It sucks.
This morning, when going for my cereal, I thought to myself that I won’t measure, I’ll just have a nice big bowl of chocolate cheerios. No one will know, right? I definitely had to force myself to measure.
My husband and I talked about me going out with friends tonight after our son goes to bed since he is probably just going to sleep anyway. What is the first thing I thought of? What can I go out and eat?
Will I ever get to a place where leaving the house doesn’t involve thinking of food? Will I ever get to a place where food isn’t the cure for boredom? happiness? sadness? depression? etc.?
I do have appointments at noon and 1 PM today that I’m going to. Even then I was thinking about what food I can get while I’m out.
I have to keep repeating to myself that food is nutrition and is not going to help the situation or make anything better.
I did promise my husband that I would take the overripe bananas and make him banana bread today so I am going to look up cookinglight.com recipes and see what I can find that won’t be so bad.
Wish me luck!
