I got a small lesson in wanting what you've got today. Yesterday I would have paid someone to go to work in my place. I wanted nothing more than to be out playing with my kids. Today I woke up sick...Sit on the toilet with a bowl sick. Bone-hurting, fever sick. I would have paid someone today to take my place at home and gone off happily to work.
Thankfully the ex had and agreed to keep the kids for me. He had to get my little man's meds so they brought me diet Coke. I slept until 4 this afternoon only rising to puke or more and now feel remarkably better. I can keep down the Coke and hopefully will some soup. I want to go to work tomorrow...because that means I'll be feeling better.
You may remember J got sick last week. I shunned her like she had the plague and heard many times that I am not nice to sick folk. I know this, but I do take care of their needs and try very hard not to catch whatever they have. Hell, I even stopped in the snow for soda and crackers when I wanted nothing more than to come home...Boy I sound like a bitch don't I?
Z got sick on Monday. I stayed up with her and gave her soda a cool rag and put her to bed with me. She was fine going to Dad's yesterday. She was fine today. I'm hoping for recovery like that too because all I want when I'm sick is to whine in a silent, dark house. And now J is home and wants to chat.
