i shared the situation with The Facebook this morning:
so yes, today was our anniversary. and we spent it intermittently cleaning up whatever nash expunged from her stomach and sleeping.
9:00am. i made myself some breakfast. this was supposed to be a pumpkin-protein-pancake, but something changed in the chemical makeup of the pancake with the addition of the pumpkin. so it turned into more of a "sweet scramble". but it was still good.
|sweet pumpkin scramble. strawberries. water.|
and we went through 2 pots of coffee today.
around 10am, nash said she wanted to "nuggle" with me and watch a movie.
|this after insisting that i put on the movie 'brave' for her.|
i dragged a chair into the bedroom, hooked up the laptop, got the dvd, turned it on,
and she promptly fell asleep.
1:00pm. i fixed myself some lunch.
|again with the sweet potato hash.|
and sriracha. i.p.t.s.o.e. (i-put-that-shit-on-everything)
i would've liked to have gotten in a workout today, but i didn't. i'm pretty exhausted from everyone being sick last week, the insomnia of this week, and the vomiting of last night. so instead of going out for a run this afternoon, i took a nap.
nash wouldn't eat or drink a thing all day other than a few sips of water, and then all of a sudden around 4pm, she decided that nothing had happened and she was fine.
kids are amazingly resilient. and mine will likely still need therapy as adults.
so i guess she didn't really rally. at all. it was a very brief foray into health until about 5pm when she vomited again. at 5:30, she said she wanted to go to bed, and neither she nor i were interested in trying to feed her dinner. her because she's sick, and me because i don't want to clean up any more vomit today.
6:45pm. dinner. homemade chicken noodle soup. zeke gobbled it. nash slept through it.
|lots of leftovers.|
today's triple triumph's:
- i did not get on the scale today. on a day like this, who needs it?
- i slept when i needed to, even though my training plan said to run. no one is gonna die if my training plan isn't crossed off completely as scheduled. i needed sleep. i listened to myself.
- i drank a lot of water today.
