Have You Ever Had One of Those Weeks?

Updated: Nov 9

By Alina Fridman -

Can't decide if I need a hug, an xl coffee, 6 shots of vodka or 2 weeks of sleep. Yeah, that kind of a week!


Have you ever had one of those weeks? I'm living it right now.

It all started when my son got sick. A fever spike of 103.4. I dropped everything and took him to see his doctor. From there, we went to get tested for COVID-19 (negative thank goodness). The doctor thought it was a viral infection and sent us home. His fever spiked again, this time to 105.1 and so we rushed to the ER. It's been a crazy, scary, and emotional week. He's on antibiotics and is doing well. Took it like a champ while his mama was a complete mess.

Everything stopped for my kid. I was only able to do the minimum. Work slowed down, appointments rescheduled and deadlines pushed back.

I just realized something. I'm exhausted. And not because of what I went through these couple of weeks. But because of what has been going on since March. Life changed! I've been juggling running a business in a totally different way, pivoting that business, homeschooling my kids, writing, recording a podcast and the list goes on and on. I used to sneak away in the middle of the day and go watch a movie in a movie theater. That was my escape, my detox. I haven't been inside a movie theater in over 8 months. I recently had a conversation with someone about how their crazy busy life had changed. For many, this time has given them a chance to be still, reflect upon their lives. For me, I've been busier than ever and it doesn't seem like I'm slowing down.

Well, today I'm slowing down. Not yet ready to be still, maybe over the holidays. But I am doing something for ME. What are you doing for YOU? Leave a comment.
