I got some sort of horrible flu the day after we returned from Japan, and have been ailing ever since. It's all I can do to keep up with my very basic responsibilities (feed/clothe/amuse/clean R, keep the house from utter chaos) because I feel so terrible. I really want to write a bunch of posts on Japan but just haven't had the energy. Even surfing the Internet is often too much work and instead I lay in bed staring at the wall or dozing, and wondering when I will get better.
I'm also very glad R has preschool 4 mornings a week: she's happy and I can take to my bed (though what a waste of my child-free time, considering all the things I meant to get done then). Since she still naps at least two hours daily, if I wasn't sick my life would be pretty easy (with mostly free time until at least 3 pm). For the first time I can imagine having another child (don't get excited though! that won't happen anytime in the near future).
