Doing good

February 14, 2009 § 3 Comments

It didn’t take long to get my body back in repair. I had help and drank a lot of relaxing tea. That tea blend seemed to help a bunch. Amazing. I’ve gotten myself into a little routine in the mornings of actually sitting down to drink a full cup of tea and miso, having a little oatmeal or something else warming and then starting the day.  It’s been really healing.

How do I manage it with two kids? One who is seriously teething? I tell myself that I won’t complain until I’ve had my tea. And I’m sticking to it. I was finding myself complaining a lot- though there was a lot to complain about. I’m now trying to limit the complaining. Especially the complaining that heads in bilingual papi’s ears.

Some days I get a dinner on before 5, the living room picked up and maybe some laundry or an outing. Other days I just focus on feeding us and turn my back on the amazing mess a toddler can make in just a couple of hours.

We don’t go out much with all the cold and snow and ice but we seem to manage. Bilingual baby doesn’t get bored. It’s great. She loves sorting and putting things into rows. Her little brother is teething but seems bothered by it very little- when seen with some perspective. I’ve been cooking a bunch and enjoying every minute. Made a vegan potato and vegan curried butternut squash soup yesterday…. but that doesn’t happen every week. Just a surge of energy.

Thanks everyone for your good thoughts and sweet messages. I’ll keep the blog in mind but may get distracted by life and

    Glad you’re feeling better and I hope you got to freeze some of the soup you made last week! Nothing like a nice hot bowl of soup (from the freezer) to warm you up on a day when you don’t have the time/energy to cook!
