you know things are bad when you forget to eat breakfast, especially when you've prepared it already!
Today was Kelley's (hubby's) birthday, so I decided to get up this morning with Tessa and let him sleep. While he's been unemployed, he's been watching Tessa some in the morning so I can eat my breakfast and drink my much needed morning coffee. This morning, Tessa was up bright and early, 6:30 AM and running at full steam. Eventually, I did make my coffee and I put some frozen pancakes in the microwave and nuked them and then succeeded in forgetting to eat them at all or eat any breakfast for that matter other than a cup of coffee. I honestly thought I HAD eaten breakfast when I left home for the gym (our one luxury expense while hubby is unemployed), and I had so much trouble with my workout. I chalked it up to just being tired and probably about to start my period, but I really struggled and couldn't manage weights at all and did think I felt unusually hungry afterwards. When I got home from the gym, Kelley said, "I went to the donut store & got you some coffee & donuts. I saw you didn't even have time to eat your pancakes." I was about to say I'd eaten breakfast, but then it occurred to me I didn't actually remember eating it that morning and that I probably hadn't eaten. Apparently, I'd left the pancakes in the microwave, totally forgotten. Truly, I hope this is just fatigue and stress and maybe some forgetfulness due to PMS or something. I've never so totally forgotten to eat a meal I'd prepared, even to the point where I thought I'd eaten it! I'm sure having a high needs toddler such doesn't help matters any!
