You may be wondering why I’m so exhausted that I can’t make a simple sheet pan meal for dinner tonight? It only takes 30 minutes and a few simple ingredients after all.
The reason is that we have all be sick with the stomach flu this past week, well all of us except RyRy. She’s held out. I’m still waiting for her to fall to it. She’s got about two more days before I’d say she’s made it through!
We attended a family Christmas last Saturday night and a family showed up while battling the flu and shared it with all of us. All of us. Like I’m talking 45 out of 48 people or something ridiculous.
I’m scared for life.
I may never attend another family event again. Or large group event. Or anything.
If you need me you can find me wallowed up at home for the year. It’s HORRIBLE. HORRIFIC.
I’m the worst person ever when it comes to dealing with sickness. I do ok with colds and that type of stuff, but some to the stomach flu and I’m out. Gone. Running away screaming. I honestly need anxiety meds when it comes to that stuff.
If I hear our kids have been exposed to the stomach flu I’m laying in severe panic for the next week every single night. I’m scared to fall asleep because I might be woken in the middle of the night with the dreaded scream of a child getting sick.
Every sound they make through the night and I’m out of bed and into their room in a millisecond. Ready. Waiting.
Everyone is stocked with a bucket by the bed in easy range so I can grab it QUICKLY.
I say a lot of prayers. I use a lot of antibacterial hand sanitizer. My hands are raw from washing them.
And…. I still get sick!
The joys of having children right?
Am I weird? Or is this normal? My Mom is the same way. A few of my friends that I’ve shared this with seem to be the same way also. Please tell me this irrational anxiety driven fear is somewhat normal?
This makes me hope that my children grow up fast so they don’t get sick as often. That’s a thing right? Older children don’t get sick as often?? That’s what people tell me so I’m going for it.
Now, back to those resolutions to eat healthier. I’m right there with you. I have some baby weight that’s clingy. I need to get serious about this. The holidays did not treat my hips nicely. Not at all.
Those jeans are a bit snugger for sure. Plus, who wears jeans? I’m all for leggings due to this reason!
If you are looking for an easy dinner recipe that comes together in 30 minutes, is a bit healthier and still packs a ton of flavor then this delicious Sheet Pan Lemon Parmesan Crusted Salmon and Vegetables is what you are looking for! And if there’s leftovers, another recipe you will enjoy is salmon patties!
If lemon isn’t your thing then omit it. I loved this subtle flavor to top it off, but my husband isn’t a big fan of lemon. So boring.
