Sick and Tired. Literally.

I have a cold. I do not like being sick.

Especially when all the kids are sick, too. They keep waking up at night. And asking me for stuff.

My house is a total mess.

And my husband is busy digging massive trenches throughout our backyard. (Don't ask.)

And somebody ate the last orange creamsicle. Yeah, maybe it was me, what's it to ya.

I need some ginger ale and a cracker. And a mommy. Actually, two mommies. One for me, and a spare for the kids. And maybe a third one to clean the house. Anyone for hire?

Oh, wow. You poor thing! Feel better soon!! I just got chills at the realization that I will be in your exact shoes one day - I mean it's inevitable, right? I will need to call you for advice when that rolls around. I am such a baby when I'm sick......I hope your illness is short lived!

i can't get past the whole "digging massive trenches" thing.

hope you feel better!

I will be your mommy. I will bring you stuff and see to your comfort. Cleaning? Not so much. Kid-care? Did my share. Really, I'd go out and get you kleenex and a bottle of whiskey, that's how I roll.

Oh! I forget. The trenches? Yeah, my husband does that too. And I tell the neighbors the same thing,....don't ask.

Oh, I SO understand!!! I'm not for hire (because I'm so well-paid in my current position...bwahahaha!), but I'm sending healing thoughts your way. And maybe, if we squint our eyes and think really hard, another creamsicle will find its way to your freezer.

Feel better soon!!!

are the trenches GRAVES perhaps?
Hope you feel better soon. If we lived closer, I would totally send my son over to clean your house, he is great at it!!

Get well soon! And hope you explain the "trenches" later when it's less traumatic :-)
