BritMums blogging network sent out a tweet today, asking followers to sum up their feelings at the end of half term in one word.
My word: guilty.
Guilty that my stupid leg chose this week to come up. I know in the grand scheme of things it’s not a massive issue – bearing in mind how much the Caribbean, USA and Canada have been battered by Hurricane Sandy – but we had such brilliant plans for this week, which had to go completely out of the window.
Our trip to the circus on Monday and a planned cinema trip. And I had a whole heap of things I wanted to get done around the house. I wrote a list on our blackboard wall, D rubbed it off (bless her) and now I can’t remember half the things on there!
In the end, our week was ok. T and D seemed to appreciate that I wasn’t 100% and they “got on”. No school runs and the fact T was at football camp for three days really helped. When they were together they seemed happy to just potter and do their thing whilst their Mumma sweated it out with her anti-biotics.
What I’ve learned from this, life is unpredictable. Whilst I’ve been annoyed about the situation, there was nothing that could be done. It happened and like I say to T, D and Hubbie: move on.
Things could have been a lot worse, although I’m used to getting this infection about twice a year, I know that one time the pills may not work as effectively and it may be hospital time. I cannot imagine how that would pan out with autism, anxieties and routines.
So, here’s another word: GRATEFUL.
