I know I only posted the other day but I have been trying since the new year to hibernate healthily. How am I getting on? Well, if I lived alone and could go out when I wanted and no one else ate my food, then things would be better. Still it could be worse. It was never going to be easy, I am pretty sure I made that clear in my post. Here’s how I am getting on with my healthy hibernation.
The non stop, mindless munching has stopped in the main. But it could be better. Mind you, I’m never going to be a perfect “my body is a temple type”. I’m far too weak where food is concerned. It really doesn’t help either that the monkeys have been feasting on all my fruit. Especially Little Miss who will eat half a plum then leave it in an obscure place for me to find later. There is no hope or at least no fruit left. (Sigh).
I am too tired and cold. Mentally I am struggling to get over myself. I did do parkrun on Saturday thanks to the lovely Rachael who didn’t want to go either. I felt much better afterwards. Maybe January isn’t designed for running alone. I must do something about that. Running date anyone?
This morning on the school run, I switched off the radio because there was a lot going on. However, I wonder if I should have left it on to drown out Little Miss whining that she was hungry despite her rejection of the bowl of warm weetabix she was offered before we left. Top was asking numerous questions about how old Roald Dahl was when he died and what killed him. Middle was crying because his rock star glasses, that had been in the footwell of my car for the last six months, had broken and his favourite rock, that he had just found, had fallen out of the car and down a drain. I may start bringing my ear plugs with me everywhere.
Doing lots of this but more angry panting than long drawn out calming breaths. The earplugs might help with this.
Little Miss has decided to push her bedtime back a couple of hours and continues to get up in the night. I have not made it to bed before 10pm yet. However, today she was refusing to nap so I took her up to my bedroom to play on the bed. After a bit of bouncing around she accidentally fell off. I caught her just in time luckily but it gave her a shock. Whilst I comforted her she fell asleep.
As she was lay on my arm I waited so as not to disturb her. I lay there thinking of the pile of laundry I needed to fold amongst a million and one other things I needed to do. Then I decided I would just close my eyes too. We were under the covers together for an hour and a half. It was total bliss. A great big pause while life carried on around us. In many ways it was better than an early night. Probably because it was such a rare and wonderful thing.
