The back to school germs are in full force this year. Not even a week into the school year and I get the funk. Which figures…we had a full week of getting back into the swing of things. We were on a great schedule and BAM. Knocked on my ass.
But, I think I’ve found a huge upside to all three kids being in school. Because for the first time in 11 years, I was actually able to take care of myself when I was sick. I actually got to rest, let my body take care of itself so I could get rid of the funk.
And it was amazing. I know..just last week I was telling you all about how I hated the kids being gone. That it was too quiet. But guys..I’m telling you, last week was perfection. Minus being sick of course.
And I’m starting to think guys have the right idea. We are all well aware of the “man cold” and I’m starting to think being a super drama queen about being sick so the men in our lives will take care of us might be the right idea. No more trying to take it all on myself. I got a taste of what it was like to actually relax while being sick. And I gotta tell ya, I don’t think I’m ever going back to “mom sick.”
You know what I’m talking about..mom sick…when mom’s get sick but still have to do everything for everyone including cook dinner, clean the house, take care of kids and husband. Yeah…I’m never going back. Sick days have a whole new meaning for me and I’m kinda loving it.
