I have the congested, hacking, aching, bit of nastiness that is sweeping the land. Every little bit of me aches.  And I cannot stay home today because of work stuff going on.  … Well I could, but it wouldn’t be right.

I have also discovered that Moms do not just get to lie around the entire day and get better when they’re sick.  They are still on call for a wide variety of things, like finding the snacks, keeping everyone on schedule, and soothing broken hearts. 

I really need to go back to bed.  But perhaps some cold medications will help.  It’s going to be a long day.

    Moms are not allowed to get sick! Stop whining!

    Of course, I am kidding. I agree completely. I hope you are able to get a good night’s sleep and feel better tomorrow!

    I hope you’re feeling better. You’re right about the injustice of never getting to really be sick and take the time you need to get well when you’re a mom.

    We all have it here too. And yeah, moms don’t get to sleep late and veg in front of the TV all day. We get to fetch blankets and ginger ale and cough drops.

    Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. I’m sending you some cyber-chicken soup! BTW, I like the new header and Sock Girl. She’s very, um, curly.
