Monday I learned a valuable lesson.
When your husband wakes up at 3am with an upset stomach, but decides to go to work anyway. . .
When your 3-year-old son decides to be more rambunctious than usual. . .
When your 2-week-old son decides to eat all day long. . .
When your husband calls to say he’s on his way home from work because the upset stomach is really a stomach virus. . .
When the 3-year-old decides not to take a nap. . .
When the baby wants to be held ALL day long. . .
When the husband sleeps all afternoon, and the 3-year-old doesn’t want to be quiet so Daddy can rest. . .
When the husband turns green just thinking about food. . .
That is NOT the day to forget to have a cup of coffee in the morning! I usually only drink one mug a day, but apparently I’m more dependent on the caffeine than I thought. Oh – and eating left over brownies for breakfast is not a good idea either. Yeah, let’s start the day with too much sugar, no caffeine, a sick husband, and a rowdy boy.
Adding a pounding tension headache to that mix does not make for a good day.
Next time I consider skipping the coffee so the smell doesn’t nauseate my husband – I’ll wait ’til he leaves for work, and then I’ll brew a pot of extra-strong coffee, just in case!
Boy, was I ever glad to go to bed THAT night!
