I woke up sick today. I had a bit of a runny nose yesterday that developed into a full blown case of “the snotties” as my son would call it. It snuck up on me in the middle of the night and really came on strong. My head hurts. My eyes feel hot and watery. I didn’t feel like doing my usual Week in Review post today because I felt more like whining about being sick.
With a husband out of town for two weeks and no family near by, getting sick is just a special kind of misery because I don’t actually get any time to “be sick.” I just have to push through and pretend like I’d rather not just crawl into bed and stay there until I’m not dripping snot and my ears don’t feel stuffed with cotton.
So that’s about it. I’m not even turning this into some article like “10 Tips on How to Deal with Being Sick” or something because I don’t even know…I could probably use some tips myself. So far putting a pillow on the floor and lying in the center of my son’s play area while telling him “mommy’s playing while she’s resting” doesn’t seem to be working. I don’t think he’s buying it.
I need to get myself to the store and find some good cold meds. Actually, screw that, I need to place a Shipt order on my phone and have someone just bring it to me. Hoping this is just a short little bug and it passes soon.
So if anyone needs me I’ll be lying in this pile of toys here trying to convince my son I’m pretending to be a mountain so he can drive cars over me.
