I felt a lot better today. I managed to get more sleep anyway. I do worry about my fatigue and pain since the garden this summer is critical. In some ways it makes me incredibly nervous and in other ways I'm okay with it. I have such a fear of failure that it paralyzes me. If I could be aware of my limitations and be okay with them, then maybe living within them could be more productive. Instead of curling up in a ball and shutting myself off from everything I'm afraid to try.
But Zach woke up really not feeling well. He had sharp stomach pains and could barely stand up so I gave him a hot water bottle some Pepto Bismal and had him lie on my bed on his left side with his knees drawn up to his chest. After about an hour he felt much better and is perfectly fine now.
Home remedies. Gotta know when to use them and when to go to the doctor. I did think about him not having insurance and might...just might...have thought some evil thoughts. But only briefly. If he had continued to have problems we would have gone to the doctor. Or Urgent Care anyway. I doubt his doctor would have seen him without insurance.
I ended up ordering the thing I really wanted after all. I got all four seasons of Farscape at more than half off the price. I wasn't going to but it's difficult to get them from the library and there were only 14 of them left. Down by 12 from the last time I looked. Tom was okay with it since I rarely spend money on dvds anymore. But he also knows that I won't do anything like that again for a long, long time.
We didn't make it to town today because of Zach's stomach problems and tomorrow I'm expecting a phone call but I'm going to try to get there either after the phone call or Thursday. Boston Legal is in so I'd like to get it so Tom can watch it for the weekend. I'm almost done with House, season 2 but I have 2 series of The Last Detective and Midsomer Murders, set 11 to watch. I'm still on hat 15. Sigh. I think I'm burned out a bit. I do need to get back to it but maybe 40 hats was a bit too ambitious. Maybe I should just knit the hats as I feel like it and not put a deadline on it. It seems like that's another limitation I need to pay more attention to.
Supper dishes are screaming at me. I'm most likely going back to washing by hand. They don't seem as clean and I'm always running out of dishes I need. It won't be so bad. I'll just try to keep up better.
Off to clean the kitchen and then knit on the blanket and hat.
