Ok, so 2.5 out of 12 is not that great. One problem is that I don't actually remember these past January, so it's hard to track what I've actually set for myself. Maybe it's time to figure out some good goal-setting strategies.
(Graphic at times! Be warned)
We ended our 2014 with a whimper (literally!) - Vic got the worst case of the stomach flu I've ever seen and so we ended up staying in because he was in the bathroom 2-3x an hour. The bug he caught was pretty strong; even when the vomiting stopped, he still didn't fully recover for another week at least. The day I was supposed to go back to work (Jan 6), I had stomach spasms all night and then after my shower in the morning, vomited all over our bathroom. Yum. Emailed my boss and told him I wasn't coming in, then hopped back into bed.
Vic was going to make an appointment for himself to see the doctor because it had been a week, so I tagged along just to make sure baby was ok. When we got to the doctor's, I ended up projectile vomiting in the doctor's bathroom. Oops! I cleaned up, but it just made me feel that much sicker. I felt so horrible for the person who had to clean up. Doctor checked up on the baby and heartbeat seemed normal, so he gave me some anti-nausea medication and sent us back home for rest. I ended up sleeping on the ride home, napped for the day and then slept through the night. Both Vic and I ended up taking 3 days off each. It was definitely a bad stretch to end 2014 and start 2015.
Vic and I are feeling like our old selves again, fortunately, and back to the grind. Lots of things on the go for the next few weeks: I'm wrapping up a project at work for the end of the month, Vic's getting ready for his trip to Vegas on the 8th.
