I Surrender

This morning, I was awakened by my son trying to forcibly feed me a lollipop. Where exactly he found said treat is questionable. He took it personally when I refused.

Looking outside, it's a miserable day. It's cold. It's windy. It's snowing. Yup, snowing.

I am sick. I have a painful cough, which, while agonizing, doesn't have the right symptoms to warrant a prescription. I could really use some drugs. Not for me...for the kids. One is semi-sick and the other is perfectly fine. The semi-sick one is just sick enough (same cough) to be whiny, hog the humidifier and constantly burst into tears at the slightest slight. Not sick enough to medicate and therefore, send to a druggy nap for the afternoon. The other one is about to be sold to gypsies. They just need to raise their price a little more so I can afford that all-expenses-paid resort trip.

Did I happen to mention that the Man is gone? Yeah. Won't be back until next weekend.

The only thing keeping me from pulling on pjs and crawling back into bed for the rest of the week is the fact that tonight is Book Group. The book for this evening? Twilight. So of course I'm going. Even have a babysitter lined up. Just hope I can get out a complete sentence without coughing up a lung.

Take care of yourself! I'm glad you're getting out tonight just to have a break from your kids while Q is gone. Good luck!

I hope you make it. I am so sorry you are sick and the kids are being a pain.Did you like the twilight book? I hope you got a wee break. I love that you like a fully set table. My kids tend to sword fight if I actually put knives on. So I don't.

So sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. I have that same "lung hacking up" cough.
I have one word:


It's a beautiful thing. It saved my remaining lung.

Hope you get feeling better.

Ah, I'm sorry. Hope to hear how your book group went. I think Twilight always ends up being a good discussion.

I hate it when Mom is sick! And then when everyone else is sick and they still expect mom to take care of them! that is the worst!
Hope that the book club goes well! I am with you, no matter how sick you are, twilight is reason enough to get of bed!

I'm sorry you are sick, I have been surprisingly healthy since lily was born. I hope you get better soon. Let me know if you need some of my homemade chicken noodle soup.
