I need a pick-me-up!

This is the first day I've been eating real food since Wednesday. Seriously, I feel as weak as a baby. I just loaded up the dishwasher from breakfast and the kids making Ice Cream Magic, and put frozen pizzas in the oven for their lunch, and I'm wiped out like I ran the New York Marathon. There's a week's worth of laundry mounded everywhere, the house is cluttered to the skies, I've got work deadlines coming up, and the kids want spaghetti for dinner tonight. Is there anything I can do to get a turbo charge of energy because all I want to do is crawl back in bed. There's no easing back into the land of the living--you got to hit the ground running. I tried coffee, but it only made me queasy again.

  • Not much to do but sleep it off I am afraid! Eat light- crackers, cheerios, banana... No coffee! lol. Try tea instead. It is a bit gentler and still has a bit of caffeine.

  • After your daughter goes to bed, take a warm bath. I hope you start to feel better soon.

  • My daughter lent me her sparkly star earrings to wear. She swears they'll give me princess powers.
