No Rest for the Mommy

I’m fairly certain I have a cold. It’s no surprise, really, considering I have next to no downtime and the craziness of holiday travel just added to my weariness. I’ve been going to bed so early the last few nights — like 8:30 early. Today I have a runny nose, scratchy throat… this is not good. I had a glass of Airborne and have been trying to drink a lot of water (as well as tea) today, hoping to ward off the germies. If only the wee ones could understand that mommy really doesn’t feel like crawling all over the floor today, nevermind being used as a jungle gym. Oh well. It’s just as well that I can’t take a couple minutes to rest because then I’d be done for the rest of the day and I need to run to the grocery store, plus continue cleaning up mess after mess after mess. I will be very happy when it is 7:15 and the boys are both in bed and I can just collapse. Of course, it’s not even noon which means I have a very long day ahead of me. Crap.

    Carol, please don’t shoot me … I think that *I* was the one to give you that cold. 🙁 I came down with the same thing the day after I left your house! And Jeff has it now, too. Thankfully it didn’t last long for me ~ hopefully yours will be the same!

    *hugs* Hope you feel better soon. I so hear you on the “don’t want to crawl all over the floor” thing. Kids just don’t understand that it’s not as easy for us to bounce back from being sick.
