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.
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. ;)
