TT - Things I didn't manage to get done this week, and why


Here are thirteen things I should have accomplished this week and didn't, because I was too busy having bronchitis, followed by a severe allergic reaction to the bronchitis medication. It's been a barrel of laughs around here lately I tell ya...

This is what I should have done this week - thank heavens for a terrific husband who brought the kids to school each morning and came home early each afternoon to get them:

1. Worked something vaguely resembling my normal number of hours (I work from home by the hour - I don't work, I don't get paid)

2. Grocery shopped

3. Taken Maya to speech

4. Taken Itai to soccer - twice

5. Taken Maya to the doctor to have some birthmarks that seem to be growing looked at

6. Gotten my hair colored - I'm starting to bear a distinct and very unflattering resemblance to Pepe Le Pew

7. Gone to the gym - twice

8. Finished the laundry I started 3 days ago, and kept up with the rest

9. Taken Maya to her sports class

10. Gotten the right headlight on my car replaced

11. Dealt with an outstanding tax issue

12. Paid Itai's school insurance (in person at city hall)

13. Any one of a thousand other things that a mom does each week

Next week's got to get better, right? I have to be due for a break already.

I hope you feel better now! Healing vibes coming your way! Don't worry to much about what you didn't do; it's not your fault. Hooray for your hubby!
Thanks for visiting my TT. I think Tel Aviv made it to the Top 50, if I remember right. You can find the complete list at the link I posted.

Oh how I need to go to the gym...Feel better.

MamaToo said...

Seems you had a hefty list of things to do! Hopefully you're feeling better and back to your normal schedule soon.
Fun list.

Yikes! Sorry you were sick! I hope you start feeling better soon!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

No, no, you should NOT go to the gym when you're sick; you'll only feel worse and cough harder. Trust me.

I'm just glad you're on the mend.

Holly said...

Feel better!

And thanks for visiting my TT-13 - it feels good to be back!

Happy TT-13!

Smiles,

Holly

That's 1013, technically. LOL

What's this about school insurance? I never had to do that.

ellen b. said...

Boy that's a lot to do even when you are well. I hope you feel 100% very soon!

Sandy Carlson said...

The gym will be there....Get there for yourself ASAP!

Nicholas said...

We all have long lists of things we should have done but didn't. No need to feel bad. And I hope you get better very soon.

Yikes, I hope you feel better. Maybe you need to go back to bed and put the covers up over your head and hide.

Mich said...

Hi! i'm a new T13er. I hope you feel better soon--life is just that much more crazy when you don't feel well enough to deal with it!

Oh, and I signed your Mr. Linky and didn't delete my WFMW plea...apparently Mr.Linky has more of a memory than I do. My list has nothing to do with digital photos--it's all about chocolate!

Phyllis Sommer said...

Gabriella Hewitt said...

I read the post below on your allergic reaction. Sounds like the week from hell. Isn't it a fact that mom's get sick there just is no slacking off. I hope you're all recovered now.

Happy TT!

Darla said...

{{{hugs}}}} Sorry you've been so miserable. Try not to feel guilty about what's undone--just concentrate on feeling better!

Head Gaggler said...

Wow, good for you for getting that all done and I am impressed at going to the gym twice!

tickledpink.nicole said...

Hope you feel better soon. I'm home with a kid with pneumonia. Being sick is no fun.

Uisce said...

uggh, that doesn't sound so good. and what a terrible feeling of getting behind when you're not able to get stuff done!

colleen said...

I hope you get to feeling better soon!

Janet said...

Hope Maya's birthmarks are ok...and hope you feel better! I can relate to #6 LOL!

Harlekwin said...

Sometimes, there isn't anything we can do except take care of ourselves and get well. It's good to know you're starting to feel better.

Happy TT!!

julia said...

That list of didn't-get-done just shows what you normally get done when you're feeling well. Pretty impressive. Hope you feel better soon, Robin.

pussreboots said...

I've been busy too. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

L^2 said...

That's a lot to do even when you are well! Hope you're feeling better soon.

vixensden said...

Well, get better fast and don't try and take on the entire list until you are well healed.

Happy TT

Julia said...

Sorry that you end up with bronchitis and allergic reation of the medication. I hope in due time you will feel much better soon :) And I pray that you'll be able to finish all the stuff that you need to finish by than :)

Have a Happy TTs - try to have a good day/weekend ahead :)

Linda R. Moore said...

Oh dear...feel better soon. *hugs*

I have three TTs this week. (I know you've visited at least one of 'em already.) :)

Raven's Rides: 13 places I went on my motorcycle yesterday
Raven's RV: 13 things we did in the RV when the power went out
Raven's Range: 13 thoughts about Thursday Thirteen

The link above has links to all three. :)

Shesawriter said...

I would've done a list like that, only I wouldn't have been able to stop at 13. :-)

Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Sharon said...

I hope that you are feeling better now, and so sorry that you had a bad reaction to the meds. Blah.

I just had to leave you a note. The comment that you left here cracked me up. Also, "Your baby's right to eat when hungry trumps an adult's need to feel comfortable looking in every single direction they choose at every moment" was very well worded. I think sometimes people are too obsessed with themselves.

Hope you can get caught up with the laundry before it takes over the house (I hate that!).

Pieces of Me said...

Hope you're feeling better and were able to get a good night's rest. Sleep always changes everything. I should probably take my own advice. I like the Pepe association.

cajunvegan said...

Productive week. I had one too, but I am so happy that tomorrow is FRIDAY!

Happy TT!

Shannon said...

Don't you know that moms are NOT allowed to get sick because all hell breaks lose and the life as your family knows it ceases to exist??! I hope that you get better VERY soon. I know how hard it is to be out of commision and see all of those chores and what-not add up.

xakara said...

We all have those weeks just when we don't need them. I hope you feel better soon, I'm on my way to well and will leave plenty of room for you to follow. :)

tasha said...

Good list -- I could do "13 things I didn't get to today" everyday. :P Moms shouldn't get sick -- that would be a good rule. Thanks for sharing your list -- enjoyed it!

Mo said...

Wow, I hope you feel better soon. When I get sick, I curl up into a ball and sleep, and don't get anything at all done.

Christine said...

Awwww...Robin, I hope you are feeling better.

I've got to get my hair done badly too.
I hope everything is OK with Maya and her birthmarks.

You know what don't worry about all the things you didn't get done, you definetly deserve a break!

HUGS
Christine

Rims said...

Hope you feel better!!

I can understand 1, as I am too a freelancer working from home though not a parent yet....actually not even married so I am spared off the other activities that you need to manage :D

Thanks for sharing and have a great break - a well deserved one :D I have just returned from one and am dying to get back to work for a change!!!

Happy TT!!

Malcolm said...

I periodically suffer from chronic bronchitis so I can relate to your situation. The image of you resembling Pepe Le Pew made me laugh... maybe you could start a new hairstyling trend.

By the way, I provided the answers to my TT about Jack Nicholson movie quotes in the comments section of the post.

Laura said...

Hopefully you're feeling better now! I can identify w/ not getting it all done... Happy T-13!
