A post that is highly laced with sarcasm. Tread wisely....

Ooh! Ooh! Guess what? Guess WHAT?!?

All 3 of my kids are sick simulaneously!!

And!!!

AND!!!!!!

I am sick, toooooo!!!!

But the best part? The piece de resistance?!?

It is GOR.GEOUS. outside!!! Like, a beautiful, sunny, rare, 70 degree March day in Illinois! With tiny tulip bulbs, and baby grasses poking their heads through the wet dirt. Where the ground is warming up so the air is filled with that wonderful, earthy smell that makes your insides sing. There will be children riding bikes, swinging and sliding, and naked little arms will be baring their pale skin to the sunshine for the first time since October. The neighbors will be waking up from a long hibernation of solitude in our own homes, and conversations will surely last until the sun goes down tonight, as they all catch up on the months that have passed.

So the fact that we will all be miserable inside, with 2 feverish little ones and the eldest still hacking all day won't rip me apart AT ALL.

Neither will the fact that Patrick's unemployment money isn't coming through properly, so he drove in this morning to try and figure it out! That will be such fun!!! Especially when he comes home, feeling even more down, thanks to having to talk to the helpful and courteous government workers at the Unemployment office. I can hardly wait to hear his delightful description of THAT novelty!!

I hear my BEST patient whining for Moooommmmeeeee upstairs right now. I am SO HAPPY!!

Rumble, grumble, gurgle, roar...

Awe damn! Not a fun day -- but it will get better!

Hang in there ^_^

Leah said...

I feel for you. I do hope everyone gets better Quickly!

Gettysburg Mom said...

I'm so sorry. Perhaps you didn't get the Mommy Memo that says you are not allowed to ever be sick? It's just not feasible with everyone else sick. You could try to schedule in a sick day for you in April maybe.

Ohhh, I know all too well what you're going through....my two have been sick (feeling better now), but now I'm sick and the weather is gonna be sooooo nice today!!! It was nice yesterday....didn't get to enjoy that....and now today, I still feel like crap, so I won't get to enjoy it today either!!! I HATE BEING SICK!!! Hang in there...there'll be more nice days to come. :o)

I'm so sorry Tracey. If I could bundle up a bit of sunshine and warm weather to keep until you all feel better, I would. It'll be here to stay soon enough, though, so just focus on getting better.

If it makes you feel ANY better, I was in bed most of the day Sunday, thanks to a migraine that totally kicked my hiney. And, of course, it was BEAUTIFUL outside - a rarity for Ithaca.

Kami said...

Ugh. Hope things looks up soon!

Oh Sweetie. I'm sorry. If it helps, I can hear your sarcastic tone just perfectly...:)

Kristi said...

You poor thing. I would be VERY resentful too. I hope you get a solo walk on your own at some point today.

Tonya said...

can you take them in the back yard for awhile just to get outside? That totally stinks women. Get better soon.

Hannah said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry, and hope you ALL get better soon. Surely a little bit of time outdoors wouldn't hurt the patients? Bring out some blankets to lie on, and let them soak up a few of the sun's rays. Could be quite medicinal?

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

Oh honey, I am so sorry. It doesn't rain but it pours. ugh.

Heather of the EO said...

I don't get why life is being SO incredibly NOT nice to you right now. But you're not a horrible mother. It's just really really really hard to be all patient and loving and kind when life is piling poo on your head.

Peace,
Heather

Wellness thoughts coming your way. May the sun keep shining for you.

We've got some of that nasty business around here, too. Feel better!
