I stayed home all day Monday and Tuesday--didn't leave my house for anything and barely even got out of my bed. Today I felt a little better, but still not enough to be running around town.
But I forgot one important thing...
I'm a mom. I'm not allowed more than 2 sick days in a row.
My hubby has been great--he's been handling getting the kids to and from school, etc. and fixing me soup--even picked me up a Sonic Sprite last night. But it's now hitting him and he's trying to work on top of all of it.
And THEN, the child who shall not be named, decided to try to push an old argument today of all days and when I asked her if she REALLY wanted to go there today, she had the audacity to tell me that I had not said anything positive and had only been negative in the car (yes, the very same car that picked her up and took her to get dinner and let her sit in it while I walked into CVS in my current state). SERIOUSLY???
So, big surprise, I lost it.
And after I went to my room and folded a load of laundry and got my anger out on those stupid socks and underwear (because we rebel moms STILL fold clothes when we're sick), I started thinking...
I'll bet other moms have experienced this. There are probably some really great stories out there.
What's the best (insert sarcasm here) thing your family has asked you to do or you have just done on your own when you were sick?
I might even share some of my NyQuil with the one who has the most outrageous story...
