Last week became a step back week. Combined with Alex’s cold, me catching that cold and the fact that I’d just been building pretty steadily for several weeks, it was needed.
Especially considering how little sleep I got during the week!
I’m hoping that this week Alex will sleep a little more, thus I will get to sleep a little more. I also plan on taking another step back week. The cold seems to have worked into my lungs some and if I don’t feel better by days end, I’m calling the doctor. In the past I would have told myself that I wasn’t sick enough to need a doctor, putting it off and putting it off for weeks. That’s a yearly progression for me: get a cold, it moves to the lungs, turns into bronchitis, suffer for weeks, get antibiotics and be better in 4 days. But now, I know that I can’t take care of Alex if I’m not taking care of myself.
