Pet Blogging Friday
Pet Blogging Friday11:09 AM
I was too busy getting myself back to health to take a candid pic this week. If my pets even did anything candid in the first place (not that I remember).
So, this week I give tpyou an older picture of Mittens hiding among the plants on my balcony. She loves going there when she doesn't want anybody to pet or disturb her. The flowerbeds are hard to reach.
In other news, I am getting my energy levels back. Slowly, but surely. I need to work up the energy to go grocery shopping this weekend, because stocking the fridge hasn't been my priority while sick and DH figured out that he and Ishita could survive on noodles, pasta and take out food while I was guzzling my weight in Gatorade and juice.
The problem is that my appetite came back on Sunday and there was nothing to eat. So I gave in to take out options as well. So much so, that I really need to get the troops back to eating normally.
I already cleared the fridge of all the rotten veggies that DH had no idea what to do with while I was drifting in and out of sleep and I need to figure out next week's menu. I think Vikas Khanna's Young Chef is a very good place to start. Ishita needs to get a few cooking know how so that the next time I am sick in bed she can at least fend for herself.
Don't get me wrong, DH has been a great help and took time off work to be able to take care of Ishita, but he didn't have much of an idea about meal time, what food to cook for Ishita or even realised that there is such a thing as a bedtime routine or even bath time. It probably dawned on him that My SAHM schedule is a brutal and demanding one he had trouble grasping and balancing with his attempt at working from home for office. This is where years of experience comes in right? I didn't even realise that it would be that hard for him to figure it all out. And, I was in really too much pain and discomfort to think of making him a check list to guide him through it (now that I am better, yeah sure the thought is crossing my mind!).
He wasn't even helped with the fact, Ishita's school is still only 3 hours a day long as part of the transition phase. So he went in cold turkey on that whole tight time management in the morning, he is the guy that is used sleeping in. And there he was suddenly having to get her dressed, pack her tiffin, and drop her in the bus only to come back up and drive me to the hospital for my blood test, quickly enough to be back to pick her up from the bus and get some food into her system while I dragged myself and a few bottles of Gatorade back to bed.
Speaking of Gatorade? I am sick of the taste, and I am hoping Ishita decide to finish the stash that DH made for me. Now that I am feeling better, there is nothing strong enough to compel me to drink it. Except maybe fridge space...
Have a nice weekend everybody!
