humbling

Filed under: carmen, me — Jana @ 9:17 am

Being sick freaking sucks! Especially when your kid is sick too.

I thought for a moment that my life was pretty put together, I have a great family, Carmen is for the most part has been a pretty easy baby, and I have great friends. But then I get sick like this and you realize how out of control you really are.

I woke up saturday feeling like a truck had run over me. And I still feel like crap… I think I may have a kidney infection or something but I still need to go to the doctor. Carmen too has been sick for about a week. And in that time I have managed to lose about 4 months of work in a couple of days. Carmen has gotten re-hooked to a binky. I was way too weak to find another way to calm her down because all she did all day was cry and sleep. I’ve had her completely off a binky for months now (even at night) and now it’s like starting from square one. And the only thing she can drink now is whole milk (self medicating does not =nursing), so now she is attached to a bottle too. Not to mentoin she wont drink whole milk unless it has strawberry quik in it, so here come the cavities.

Anyway Lee took good care of us all weekend. And on father’s day even. I stayed up ’till 12 on saturday night to make him a carrot cake to bring to our friends father’s day beach cook out. Then I couldn’t even go cause I felt way too sick, and he didn’t particuarly love the cake anyway. And after a text fight with my brother, I went to bed feeling really humbled.

Well to close off this really negative post here is a picture of my sad little pixie:

  1. That poor little picture of Carmen is so sad (but kinda funny, too). Hope you guys feel better soon!

    Thank goodness for great husbands who take care of us and love us when we’re crazy and ill. I too have had some freaky illness and I about had a nervous breakdown this past week. Good times.

  2. I freakin love her face in this. I hate to see kids cry, but honestly, this is the most I have ever seen her look like you. Don’t get me wrong, you are not a pouty person, but for some reason, she looks more like you than ever before (in my opinion).

    I hate to hear that you are sick and having so many struggles. I hope you feel better. I know that I am far away, but if there is anything that I can do from Utah for you, let me know.

    :) Hang in there!

  3. Oh, poor Carmen and poor you! I hate that, I had the same thing going a couple of weeks ago. It’s no fun. So, I’m expecting sewing night is not going on tonight? I was actually going to email you and tell you I probably couldn’t make it. I’ve been crazy busy the past few weeks with my many callings and have left Clint stranded many nights. I feel I need to spend some time with him. Anyways I hope you feel better soon!

  4. Oh, I’m sorry you’re feeling so gross, Jana. Should we switch sewing to my house this week so you can cut out early or skip out if you are still feeling crappy?

    I was going to say the same thing as Misty about Carmen’s picture! She really does look like you in that picture. I have never seen you make that face (thank goodness) but there is something about that picture.

  5. Hope you feel better soon! I agree, being sick is the pits! I must have eaten something weird yesterday because I was up half of the night in the bathroom. Not a pretty sight! My sympathies!

  6. Saddy! It really is so hard to have sick lttle ones, especially when you don’t feel well. Don’t worry, she’ll get over bad habits. Just feel empowered as the Mom. I don’t have to live by you to know you’re already an amazing mother. Good luck and get better!
