Ultimate Illness

Today I'm missing Baby Boy's Ultimate game.

I don't like missing his games . . . his practices . . . his catching drills . . . his throwing drills . . . his running drills . . . his standing up . . . his sitting down . . . his snack eating . . . his talking . . . his breathing . . . his EVERYTHING!!!! I am the Number One Mom, I should be there.

But. I'm. Sick.

Something blew in last night and I woke up about 3 o'clock this morning in misery. Everything hurts: my eyes are burning, my nose is runny and stuffy depending on when you ask, my ears are hurting, my body is aching. I'm definitely sick.

I'm holding off on my determination as to whether I actually have a flu bug or if it's just cedar fever. The cedar has been pretty high for the past couple of days, so, if I'm lucky this could just last a day or two. I guess we'll see. I am highly allergic to cedar pollen, usually if I can get through January without getting sick, I'm home free.

Apparently I'm the butt of a little black-history-month-joke from the Universe. It bites.

I guess this all actually works out for the best. I had planned on taking next week off from schoolwork anyway. Baby Boy has to go to work during the daytime on Monday, so that day was already out. Mom #2 and I discussed tilling up the soon to be garden portion of the back yard on Tuesday so she can get started with the planting. The rest of the week has been slated out to clean the garage. So far we've been shuffling the stuff from one area of the garage to the other, but it really needs to be cleaned.

Now . . . I don't have to feel guilty because I don't want to do any of that stuff. Mom #2 and Baby Boy can handle it.

I want no part of it.

After all . . . I'm sick. Remember?

Until next time . . .

Uh oh. You poor thing! Indeed, you are too sick to work. Go grab a People magazine and a mug of hot tea and head straight to bed. The garage doesn't need you.

Way to find the silver lining in being sick!

Hope you are feeling better soon, but not soon enough to help with all the work. ;-)

(((HUGS))) So sorryyou're not feeling well.
Man, there is SO much 'going around' it seems like everyone I know has been sick within the past couple of weeks.
Praying you get well soon!

Well that sucks.

I HATE being sick. The older I get the more it sucks... so I'm uploading a bunch of sympathy.

Rest. Rest some more.

Well, I hope it isn't the cedar. As I recall from last year, you were really sick. I never thought I would wish the flu on you :-).

Feel better soon and enjoy your not cleaning :-).

Glad you posted a link to "Ultimate" because this one was a new one on me. Very cool! I had this weird 8 hour illness over the weekend. Hope that's what you have...but that you are Oscar-worthy enough to make it LOOK like it is a 100 hour bug, and get out of everything unsavory. Feel better soon...
