I’m still sick.
(And by help I totally mean the Thunder from Down Under. Nothing says a”quick recovery” like gyrating Australian hips clad inSpeedos.)
Save my family from my ever-growing bad mood and save me from my perpetual and unattractive bedhead.
Two days of this crap leaves melonging for the days of my Dolly Parton hair and Tammy Faye Baker makeup. This infirm-induced au’natural junk is for the birds.
P.S. I must add, I think there is nothing more unnerving to achild’s psyche than when their mother is “out of commission.” My poor kids (and husband) don’t know what to do with themselves.
I crawled out of bed this morning to help Jer get Avery off to school and could sense a quiet discomfort from Jer at being guided through the steps of building a lunch and from Avery at watching her father manhandle the Disney princess sandwich holder. I had to scale Jer back a little as it appeared he was building a lunch worthy of a 200-pound lumberjack and not a 50-pound first grader.
And Jack? That little dude has beat feet into my bedroom no less than 50 times to peel back my eyelids and stare into my groggy, sleep-hampered eyeballs. Therapeutic. Really.
P.P.S. I’m totally serious about the Australians.
I say let them muddle their way through these days with an incoherent mom. It will help them appreciate you more when you’re back. Hope you’re better soon.
The Park Wife says
Oh, I wish you were feeling better. When mommas sick, everything falls apart!
Feel better, The Park Wife
I’d totally agree with Marley, except that never happens! I hate to be discouraging, but the appreciation usually only lasts roughly half the time you were sick.
I hope you feel better soon though! Poor Avery, she’ll probably be half scared to open her lunch now.
Hang in there. Hopefully the house is still standing when you get better.
You poor thing…there’s nothing like running a household while you’re sick!
The Lumberjack's Wife says
Get well soon! 🙁
Tammy Faye Baker makeup, now that is seriouly sick!
I feel for ya girl.
Sorry about the family, they are like drones without leadership!
Please get better soon!
You are too dang funny!!! Even when you are ill you make me laugh. Hope you feel better.
