Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen Things I Hate About Being Sick:
  1. I don't feel good!
  2. I'm hungry, but don't know what to eat that will not send me running back to the bathroom.  I mean, I know the B.R.A.T. diet and I'm sticking to it, but I'm hungry!
  3. My head hurts.
  4. I still have to be the mom.
  5. Our tv is downstairs.  Our one bathroom is upstairs.  You do the math.
  6. Did I mention my head hurts?
  7. I had to miss teaching today.
  8. I can't decide yet what to do about tomorrow - Should I get a sub and stay home again?  Should I suck it up (so to speak) and just get back in the classroom?
  9. Back to still having to be the mom, the children will be running through the front door in ninety minutes, at which time I will have to work with them to go through their after school routines, including doing all their homework.  And my head really hurts!
  10. DH won't be home until 5:30 tonight.  Does that mean I have to make dinner for those children of mine, even though I just started keeping down toast?!
  11. The Princess was coughing last night, a lot.  DH finally had to take her into the bathroom to run the hot water and fill the room with steam to help her breathe easier.  Did I mention we only have ONE bathroom. 
  12. DH tends to panic when any of us gets sick, so in addition to just feeling crappy, I also had to continually reassure him that I did NOT need to go the doctor OR the ER, that I know what to do for a stomach bug.
  13. Blech!

Ugh! It's never fun to be sick, but it especially sucks when you're expected to take care of everyone else. Hope you feel better soon, and thanks for visiting me today!

Too late to do it for this cold, but I like to keep some chicken soup in the freezer for when I get sick. That or canned chicken noodle on the shelf. Asking them to heat it up as much help as I can expect from my family.

Ah hello from one sick gal to another! I like your list too my favorite was, " I can't decide yet what to do about tomorrow" Isn't it awful that we have to spend so much time worrying about whether it is "OK" to take the extra day? I hope you fee better soon!

I know all those feelings! I hate being sick. And now I'm starting to get what the rest of my family has had. I'm a teacher, too, but I teach 6th graders. Hope you are feeling well soon! (And yes, you can imagine why I didn't leave my banking link! LOL)

I hope you get better soon. The worst part of being sick was always the never ending mom part.
