SELFISHNESS
Reason #34 Why Not to Have Kids

Because you can't coddle yourself when you're sick and lay in bed all day and have people bring you orange juice, tissues and chicken soup, and you can't sleep as much as you need to, and you can't be alone in a quiet house. Especially when they're sick, too. Although they're on the borderline of being okay to go back to school/daycare and I, on the other hand, am on my DEATHBED.

:) feeling sorry for myself makes me feel a little better. :)

well, terrible is relative, but I AM pretty grumpy. I'm smiling about it though, so it can't be that bad. :) Thank god for Tylenol Sinus!

I hope you feel better soon!
I was a total grump yesterday too due to my cold. BLAH!

thank you. :) I'm hoping to be better by tomorrow. Seems everyone I know, both IRL and LJ, is sick or has just been sick or is coming down with something. Ah, fall!

I've noticed that everyone is getting sick. Is this a bug mutated to be somehow cyber-ly contagious?? When my mom was sick, my dad got us to "play nurse" to her. We got to wear her lab coat and stethoscope. Of course, we might have bothered her more than helped her now that I think about it...
Hope you get the TLC you need and get better soon!!!!

That is just too cute. My son thinks that my stethoscope is the greatest toy in the world, I bet he would love to "play nurse" like that. *laugh*

Feel better soon! Sick moms are entitled to feeling sorry for themselves, it is one of the perks of the job. *grin*

Sorry to hear you're still not doing well... Hope you feel better soon. Maybe some Chinese hot & sour soup, if you're up for it tomorrow?

Mmmm...soup!! I've been dozing nearly all day while the kids have run riot. Keep your fingers crossed and thumbs held, I really want to come tomorrow!!

I had those 18+ years of having 2 kids through the sick days. I can sooooooo relate. No way do I want to go back to that now. It feels like heaven just to sleep in peace. I hope you feel better soon. hugs and sympathy pangs

Ditto. Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. I had glandular fever when my kids were aged 6 and 8. It was hell. Especially when the sassy 8 year old started on me for being lazy. Luckily for her, I didn't have the energy to throttle her. :)

Hope you get better, soon.

Don't you have a garage? For the kids...

LOLOLOL!! Well, Anders might have something to say about that...as the garage is HIS territory :)
