The Joys of being sick

Actually I have yet to discover any joy from being sick, although...

Some people might say:
  • At least you get to stay home with your kids for once -- but I get to stay at home with my kids all the time.
  • It gives you a chance to ignore the housework -- I frequently ignore my housework, any recent visitor here can testify to that.
  • You can wear your pajamas all day if you want -- I do that too sometimes, so that's nothing new here either.
  • People will forgive you for typos -- true enough.

I'm feeling just sick enough that my mind isn't functioning very well (okay, when does my mind function properly anyhow? It's just a fact of life of being a SAHM!) and I can't seem to remember to do things that I need to... and why I'm even posting right now is a mystery to me too when I could me emailing Holley & writing that paper out for Deputy Chase.  Maybe if I listen to the KSL 5 Noon News, my brain will wake up.
An hour ago, I started cooking supper... it's a 2 hour Vegetable Beef Stew -- supper is at 5 pm... oh well at least the beef stew meat chunks will be well cooked.

Anyhow, tiem to go...  life calls...  Just because you're a sick Mommy doesn't mean that you can really not do the work to take care of your family, if you do skip it then your house will start looking like mine.

I do regret that I won't be able to attend my Quilting Guild meeting tonight but I'd prefer not to make any of them sick and besides I think my bed sounds better today.

Oh I jsut remembered why I feel extra tired & sick...  Taw (boy#3) cried most of the night because he was so constipated -- I got to give him an enema at 11 pm and he'd passed most of the blockage [I think] by midnight but he still woke up & cried whenever he was asleep and I put him in his crib.  I spent hte night in my rocker recliner holding him except for: when I was changing his diaper or when he was throwing up on the floor from crying so much -- I finally gave him some Benadryl around 4 am to stop him from throwing up (did you know that Benadryl stops vomiting & nausea?) and I was able to put him into his crib at 5 am and I crawled into my bed a few minutes later.  Dh woke me up around 6:30 am to talk to me, then I was able to go back to sleep until 8:30-ish am when Taw woke me up (he was hanging over the end of his crib talking at me, he has quite the chatty personality at times).
After I finish that witness paper for Deputy Chase, I plan to sleep as much as I can until my boys (1 & 2) get home from school.

Sounds like you are real sick, girl. Things will get better any time, right?!?!?!

I'm thinking of you and how things are coming along with the house.l Is everything still moving forward?
