Sick and Tired

You know you're sick when you have a dream about dying! I started coming down with something on Thanksgiving Day. And let me preface that by saying I NEVER GET SICK. I'm too mean to get sick! My kids can have sniffles and I purposefully will eat and drink after them just to test my immune system and I never get sick! I have my momma's genes! I can count on one hand the number of times my mom got sick during the 21 years I lived with her. But...I'm SICK! I took Tylenol PM last night which I had vowed to never take again unless I wanted to sleep through like a whole week or something. But my thought was it will help me fall asleep and I'll just sleep through the coughing right? Wrong! I coughed so hard I wet my pants 3 times! (The joys of a post pregancy bladder.) This morning after getting Lexi off to school, I went back to bed and woke up 2 hours later in a puddle of drool. I think I could go back to bed right now and sleep till tomorrow. But then who would pick up Lexi from school, keep Ashton from destroying the house today, do the 5 loads of laundry so that Daddy can once again wear undies under his dress slacks (ew), go grocery shopping because the pantry is literally bare, unload and load the dishwasher, do homework duty, and go buy slippers for Lexi's pajama day and a present for her student teacher whose last day is tomorrow??? WHO would do all of that??? Like TODAY. I need a wife. I'm going to go take some "sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever, how did I wake up naked in the bathtub" medicine. Tis the season. Hachoo!

Well said! That deserves an Amen!
I think getting sick is our body's way of MAKING us slow down. Hey, no more peeing in your panties until someone can do the laundry ;)

I certainly hope you feel better soon.

I'm laughing - seriously, that was perfect, "I need a wife". I'm so stealing that one.

tons of vitamin C, lots of liquids, and rest dear.

and tell your husband to go commando - he can wear underwear tomorrow.

I'm right there with you Heather. I took a vacation day from work last Wednesday so that I could go to my parents' house for Thanksgiving. Tuesday night I got a HORRIBLE sore throat and it was all down hill from there. I was too weak to make the drive so I missed my family's turkey day! :( I got some antibiotics this week so I'm getting better but I still have a cough that I can't seem to get rid of.

Take lots of vitamin C, drink lots of water, and slow down!
