When life throws you a curve ball...

Make sure you have anti-bacterial wipes on hand! Ugh.
*Picture from here.
Let me backtrack... My typical work day is supposed to be 11-7, but ever since I joined Pure Barre two months ago, I now go into work between 9:30-10am and then go to PB at 12pm for my "lunch break." I'm not a morning person. Never have been, never will be. So, when I discovered the 12pm class and realized all of the teachers at that time were FABulous, I was hooked. So, with that being said... I got to work this morning at 10am only to discover that Little Man* was home sick with a stomach bug. Sick boy = no Pure Barre for this nanny. Boo. Hiss.
I decided to make the best of it because, honestly, there really isn't anything else I could do. I picked up their container of Clorox wipes and went through the entire house and wiped down every inch that could have possibly been touched/licked/breathed on by anyone carrying that icky virus. I then proceeded to wash my hands 5739284032 times today. If I touched my leg, which touched the couch, I washed my hands. If I rubbed Little Man's back, I washed my hands. I carried the container of wipes around with me like I would carry my purse through the mall. It was a necessity.
This is the reasoning behind my blog... Living a healthy lifestyle, while living a normal life, is definitely difficult at times. But you can't control life's little obstacles. So if you hit a road bump today, just brush it off and get right back into it as soon as you can! Let's hope I can make it to my PB class tomorrow... And let's hope that I don't catch any nasty bug.
*Little Man is the six year old I nanny for. Big Brother is the ten year old I nanny for. I'll never use their real names and you'll never see pictures of them. Mainly because, even though their parents wouldn't mind, I don't think it's my place to post their handsome little faces on my public blog. Heck, I don't even post them on my private Facebook or Instagram account. :)
