Blog called on account of Sickness


Wouldn't it be nice if when we were sick we could just take time out and slow down the whole world until we were feeling better? The kids would be entertained, fed, clothed and bathed. Mom would lounge around in bed resting for as long as she wanted, laptop would be at the reach of her fingertips loaded with her favourite chick films. Tea, hot soup and nibblies would magically appear by her side.

Ahhhhh.

Then there's reality. Moms just don't get a break when they are sick. Let's face it unless I am completely comatose I still attempt to keep the house at least moderately tidy. The laundry got folded because it was sitting there on the couch half finished from last night. Just the site of it was driving me crazy. Folded I put it, basket and all, in my bedroom and closed the door. Hubs can help me put it away later.

Soooo my lovely bloggy friends I may be away a day or so. This cold that has lingered for weeks has finally sucumbed to the flu. I went to bed last night with lovely fever and chills while I dreamt of completing crochet squares. Do you ever get that when you have a fever? Dreams of mundane tasks that suddenly rise up to torment you in your sleep> I ended up awake after a scant 1 1/2 sleep to sit and watch t.v. cause I couldn't sleep. Add to this that E definitely has had a fever for the last several days and J keeps saying her head hurts. O, so far has been a trooper. The poor boy is soooo bored.

So like I said I may not post for a day or so. It just might be a good time to catch up on my reading though if I could get my butt off the couch. ;)

  5. UGH, I hope you all feel better soon! I just got over a cold and it was like pure torture to have to take care of the kids while I was so congested and achy.

    I totally get how you'd love to be able to just lay in bed and recover in peace and quiet. I was recently talking to my ob/gyn about a hysterectomy and she said, "Well, one thing to consider is how long you'll be in the hospital recovering and then what your limitations will be once you return home". I was like "The longer I'm incapacitated, the better". She looked at me as if I was crazy. Is it obvious that she does NOT have children?

  8. Hi! I'm a new follower of your blog. I absolutely relate to this post! I've been sick the past week or so and just wish I could call in sick. I finally told my husband on Saturday afternoon that I was going to sleep and just slept for 3 hours straight without worrying about anyone else. It felt good, but the cold or allergies or whatever keep lingering...ugh. I'm looking at the laundry and dishes and article to be written (I write part-time for a weekly paper) and I just want to veg and turn on Netflix Watch Instantly.

  9. Last week was my first time being sick since my daughter was born 5 months ago. I had both the flu and strep throat, ugh! Fortunately baby didn't get sick at all (thank you breastfeeding) but that meant she was still wanting to play!!
