Still Sick.....Ugh

I am still feeling pretty rotten today so I haven't really done much. I have spent most of the past few days just relaxing and taking it easy, trying to get better. It's been awhile since I have had something this nasty. My throat is just absolutely killing me and nothing seems to be making it any better. But I have been on the antibiotic now for a few days so I am praying tomorrow is a better day!!!

You know, it's funny. I was thinking about it last night as I was taking my kids to soccer.......being a Mom is rough. When we get sick, the world doesn't stop turning. Nothing changes. Everything stays the same. The kids still need fed. The house still needs cleaned. Kids still have soccer games. Baby still needs changed and fed and played with.  The laundry keeps piling up. And we never get to stop!  This is my husband's long week at work so I have very little help from him.  I still have to get up at 6 a.m. all week to make sure he gets off to work with everything he needs and I still have to get the kids ready for school, make sure they have their homework done and everything in their backpacks. Make sure they get a good breakfast and make it on the bus when it comes at 7:30 a.m. Then I spend the rest of the day taking care of the house, the laundry and the baby. Then the kids get off the bus and I have to make sure they get fed and all 3 of them get to their soccer practices/games 3 days/week.  After that, hubby gets home and needs fed and the kids usually want to have a snack before we start showers and our bedtime routine. 

It's no wonder Mom's take so long to get better!!!  When my husband or my kids get sick. I take care of them! But when I get sick, nobody takes care of me. *lol* I am on my own to keep things together, regardless of how bad I feel. It would be great to just climb into the bed and stay there for an entire day having someone wait on me hand and foot!!! 

Is it like that at your house too?


  1. You totally sound like me last week! I was having a hard time adjusting to my kids being in school and I was so sick to my stomach. I told my husband the same thing, that it's not fair when the mom's sick because no one takes care of her! I hope you feel better really soon! If I lived close to you, I'd come over and help you out.

  2. Thats right when Mom is sick she must carry on! When dad is sick ...well lets just say its straight to bed or on the couch till hes better. Some wome are lucky to have a mother or sister that lives close & cares enough to come help a sick mommy out but thats not my reality.. wish it was. I hope you feel better now.


I love comments!! Thanks for taking the time!
