It's Been a Rough Week

I can't remember the last time I felt so bad. For two weeks I've been fighting some kind of upper respiratory illness that has knocked me for a loop. I thought I was getting better Sunday but come Monday night I was so sick, I probably would have gone to the doctor if it hadn't been night time.
I've toughed it out, and I can finally feel some improvement.

After the cough has gone from constant to occasional, after my throat doesn't still feel like it's on fire, after my headache has lightened up, I still feel as weak as a kitten. Or "Weak as water" as my precious grandmother would say.

I haven't been able to do any sewing, and no visiting my little Klaire. I had to miss both my nephews' graduation ceremonies and cancel a much needed  hair appointment.

I did wind up keeping LMW two half days. And on top of my feeling bad, he is going through a bad stage. By bad I mean he is MEAN. Throwing things, hitting, arguing, disobeying, and talking very hatefully to us. We know it's a phase and it will pass. And we know that if we are firm and consistent he will learn. That doesn't make us feel better when it happens and we have to discipline.  We also wonder how much of this is natural, and how much has been taught by the bully in his Mother's Day Out class.
Yes, at three years old, he's having to deal with a bully. Sad isn't it?

I did finally get a block sewn today. It was one of my June BOMs, so I'll post it in June. I forced myself to get up and move around and accomplish something. Anything. SR has given me orders to take it easy and rest tomorrow. I'm so behind though.....
I hope I can gather enough energy to do at least a little housework, and a little sewing. Wish me luck.
