This past week has been the snottiest of snottiest weeks around this house. Tissue after Tissue full of you guessed it SNOT. It is SNOT a lot of fun, sorry for the pun. I looked at Brian at one point and said, I don’t understand how their can be anymore snot left in my nose? He replied with disgust, yeah I know.
The hardest thing about being sick and being a working parent is not having the time or space to rest properly and get better. I still have to get up and do all my parent responsibilities and I still have to go to work and do all my adult job things… I’m sick, but not sick enough to stay home, nor can I stay home every day, I have to pick and choose my sick days wisely, never knowing what is coming up on the horizon. Even this past weekend I was only able to lay down once an rest- definitely not enough time to call it a “sick day.”
My fear whenever I am sick is that I am starting a new cycle in the house… first it’s me, then Tommy, then Brian…maybe even Skyfox might get in on this one. Oh geez, please let it end with me. To be honest this one started with Tommy- snotting all over me two weeks ago and getting my snot ratio to an all time high… so look out Skyfox you might be next!
I hope at some point to be snot free- at least for a little while. I forget what it feels like to breathe and think right. The other day while teaching my class I had a moment where I got lost in my thoughts, now my older adults that I work with would call that a “senior moment” well I was honest with my class and let them know I was having a “DayQuil moment”.
Well it’s Snot that Bad in the long run I guess….just a major inconvenience and messy situation.
How is your house… Snot Free or Full of Snots?
