Tuesday night I didn’t have a choice: I had to take it easy. I was on the couch, covered with four blankets and no energy to move. I’m not sure that it was the flu, but I had all the symptoms. Early Wednesday morning, Savannah woke running a fever, too. Aaron decided to go to work on Wednesday, but I had instructions to take it easy and call him if I was desperate.
Here’s what taking it easy looked like for me yesterday:
—I did three loads of laundry.
—I read books to the girls for an hour (despite having a sore throat).
—I played outside with the girls.
—I made a double batch of Southwest Lasagna.
—I took Madeline to her last Parent-Tot swimming lesson.
—Madeline and I celebrated the completion of her class with ice cream!
Hmm … I’ve never been very good at the resting thing!
