Gardening with my co-workers
Quick and easy food
White coating on my tongue
Swollen, dark under-eye circles in the morning
Minor redness and bumpiness on forehead, nose and chin--actually looks a little clearer today
Stomach felt bloated today after yesterday's cooked food
Trouble with elimination, not feeling that I was totally emptying out
Exhaustion at the end of the day
The little guy had such a painful runny nose that he went on a mini-nursing strike. None of my children have ever had a nursing strike so it was a bit freaky. I got really full of milk. Luckily he nursed himself to sleep finally and nursed during the night.
My other 3 children tag-teamed me this evening because they wanted to do things that I had told them I would not allow them to do. There were three crying children and one annoyed mama by the end. Funny how it's most difficult to practice Non-violent Communication with the ones you love the most.
