Moms don't get sick days...

How I wish I could call someone up and say "I have the flu and will be staying in bed all day". Then they would have to get kids up and dresssed, fed, lunches made and to school. They would pick them up, too and make dinner and get them to bed. But there are husbands with metings and babysiters recovering from surgery and no family near by. So I cry and get up and do what needs to be done. I hope I feel better soon. Is it safe to drive while taking nyquil?

Oh poor you! I hear you and feel for you too! I don't know what is worse..a sick kid or a sick mom. So sorry to hear you're puny! Hang there! Huuugs!

It is a burden we must bear, isn't it?

So sorry you're sick Lisa. Get some good meds and feel better soon.

Oh I'm so sorry! I wish we lived closer, then Rose and Marie and I would come over and entertain the kids while you got some much-needed rest. Sending feel-good vibes and hoping the relief shift (aka hubs) comes home early!

It is times like this I wished we lived closer. I am currently doing all of those things you listed because Braden has been sick in bed for two days as well. If you were here, I could bring you both trays of food in bed. I think my legs are about to fall off from running up and down the stairs so often, but I'd rather serve him on a bed-tray than have his germy self at the dinner table. Get well soon.
