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.
