Yesterday was kind of rough. It’s allergy season here (early because of the warm winter) and more than one of us is suffering! For at least two of us that means that asthma kicks up, and since we haven’t had to deal with it in a few months I didn’t recognize the signs at all.
With the children asthma almost always means weepiness while I just feel completely stressed and easily annoyed. Add to that situation that there were a bunch of things that needed to get done yesterday, a change of plans (and yes, F gets most of his difficulties with that from me)and the usual tiredness that comes with this stage of pregnancy and I was a mess yesterday!
Thankfully S was home, and recognized the signs of asthma, dealt with the children, made dinner and generally coddled me until I could get my head straight again.
Hopefully this week will allow me sort things out from last week- I have a number of half-finished projects. I’ll be keeping a close eye on my breathing and taking an allergy med which should bring my breathing back to normal. I’ll also be careful not to over-schedule myself and the children which I think I did a little last week even though I chose not do a number of things!
When I stop and think about it I realize that I’m really not in bad shape for a new baby in six weeks. There are a number of things that I need to do still, but most of them are fairly small. There is also a list of things I’d like to do, but that of course is different from needing to do them so I can leave them for later!
Anyway it’s time to lay out the Sunday clothes, do Su’s hair and get everyone ready for church…
