I really don't have time for being sick... it is really cramping my style. It ruined all my plans for a fun weekend. Today I had lunch plans with a girlfriend I haven't seen in months, had to cancel. I was then going to go decoration shopping (fun!) for some clients, couldn't go. There will be no date night tonight, sorry hubs... and no church in the morning, sorry Jesus.
And then, if I'm not feeling any better tomorrow there will be a very annoying trip to a surely very crowded doc in the box (since it's Sunday my doc's office is closed) where I'll probably pick up some more germs from a waiting room full of sickos. Yuck.
If I'm lucky I won't pass this to the Deuce (child 2) or the hubs, (I think I caught it from the Ace (child 1) so hopefully he is safe from the germ monster, aka; me).
Unfortunately, I'm sick on the weekend so it ruined my weekend and my hubs too (sorry honey). But fortunately, I am sick on the weekend so hubs has been home to help take care of the boys. Because, as all you other moms know, moms do NOT have time to get sick, ever. And if you are a sick mom, you have to suck it up and get your job done anyway... 24/7. It was nice to have the hubs here to help and I actually got to take a nap. (Thanks honey!)
So, I'm not trying to have a pity party for myself. Just wanted to give a shout-out to sick moms everywhere with ruined plans and runny noses.
You do your job 24/7 even while feeling like (and probably looking like ;) total poo. You know what, that makes you awesome. You probably don't hear that enough, your little kids aren't telling you that, heck, they might not even realize you're sick.
It is darned hard work to take care of your kids when you are sick but you do it anyway. It may not always be pretty or perfect but you get the job done. So give yourself a pat on the back, someday your kids will thank you (maybe not until they have their own kids) for all of your hard work. It's not easy, but it's so worth it. :)
