what i have been up to

Since the husband got sick, I have been doing things I don't normally do like bringing the trash out or bringing groceries in. He used to be the pack mule but now I have to do it because he can't do anything else. It was hard at first, having to take care of the little man and then the husband, catering to their needs and then doing the household chores at the same time. It does not help that the little man has the sniffles which we don't know if caused by allergy or by a virus because he has had this for days now though thankfully he does not have fever. I am getting used to it though. I have worked out a routine which works perfectly well for us. I hope we will know what is causing the husband's pain so they can proceed with the right treatment soon enough. We are still waiting and just staying home all the time. I have not even been to the Flea market and I am dying to trade my books so I can have something to read when I am not busy. Yes, surprisingly, even if I have to keep up with my family's needs, I still find some alone time and instead of thinking (which only worries me) I read which prevents me from doing any thinking at all. My stint away from reality albeit for only a few minutes at a time. I hope this will all pass and then we will be back to normal again.
