I’m still fighting the cold/flu virus. It’s weird how much it affects my ability to think up great posts. Most would say that I never had that ability in the first place. I totally agree.
I won’t go into the details, but that virus and I have been battling since Friday. Sunday was my weakest day, but I rallied my defenses and re-launched my attack. I’m back to just cold symptoms now. Still no fun.
Yesterday I was wondering if I should be wearing a doctor’s mask. Not to protect me, but to protect my kids. Maybe gloves and a face shield…
“Mommy, I hit my head. Please make it better.” Sniffle, sniffle. I kiss the boo-boo and run for another tissue.
“Would you read me this book?” “Okay.” Cough, Hack, Wheeze. “One day…” Then run for a tissue and another hand washing.
“What’s for lunch?” “Here’s your hot dog.” Aa-choo. Eyes are watering. Run for tissue, wash hands, come back, cut food, sniffle, sniffle…
Maybe their immunity is built up because they had it right before me. I pray it’s so.
P.S. Are you wondering why I was running for tissues? I’m keeping the sole remaining tissue box in the bathroom so I can wash my hands right away. If not, the kids will ask for something and I will get sidetracked.
