Life Weekend

Weekend Wrap Up…Sick Mama Edition

Happy Monday,

I hope your weekends were filled with Christmas shopping and all of the pleasantries of the season while I laid in the bed overtaken with the worst cold/flu that I’ve known in at least the past 5 years.

I was/still am very sick.

mothers don't get sick


Thursday I got that scratchy feeling in my throat and within hours I was in the bed shivering like Smokey in the chicken coop. If you don’t get that reference don’t even worry about it.

Lawd. Being sick sucks, I normally get a little congestion here and there but this right here…..took me completely out of the game. I am so thankful that my husband works from home and has been able to be at my beck and call otherwise my children wouldn’t have eaten or bathed in the past 3 days. I literally couldn’t get out of the bed.

So let’s talk about how being a sick mother is tantamount to taking days off of work and dreading coming back to an inbox full of emails. Well that’s how I was feeling the entire time, I just knew he wasn’t going to stay on top of things and when I finally made it into the kitchen I was happy to see it was clean but this laundry pile tho. I’ll get to it this week sometime.


Enough of my moaning and groaning. How was your weekend? Did you get your Christmas shopping completed?

    Girl, if I get sick my whole house turns into a mosh pit. There’s unexplainable smells in weird places, people looking around at each other like “WHO GON COOK” and my personal favorite I get NO SLEEP!!!!!!

    LMAO at that pile of laundry. That’s what I met when I came back from ATL. Men! I spent the weekend cleaning water out of my basement and attempting to not let it mold. Oh the joy!

    Hope you feel better soon! I don’t like getting sick, I rather have a break when I’m feeling good and can take advantage of it. I hate getting sick and know that when I’m back in the game, there is tons of stuff for me to do.

    That’s the worst part about getting sick. In my house it’s like time stands still until I’m better. My daughter just got over something awful and I’m praying that I don’t get it.

    Mimi!!!! Girl, me and you both. I have had a head cold that only goes away for a couple of weeks at a time (Pregnancy Rhinitis). I feel so bad for my family because I just want to bury myself in my covers. I can’t taste my food either which is a major problem for someone like me who loves to eat!! LOL! BTW, great photo of your pile of laundry! 🙂

    Hope you’re on the mend! No fun being sick this time of year I know and when mama’s out it’s totally different than anyone else in the household.
