Today I woke up early with a wicked sore throat and my head feels like a balloon that's been blown up just a wee bit too far. And staying in bed with my trusty laptop, tea with honey, and a good book sounds pretty good to me.
Once in a while, there comes that dreaded day when my husband will turn off his alarm and not get up.
Outer calm, inner panic.
"Do you have a fever, are you throwing up?"
"No, I have a cold. I'm going to stay home and rest."
YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING! (This is inside my head). YOU'RE NOT SICK ENOUGH TO STAY HOME - I DON'T GET TO TAKE A DAY OFF WHEN I HAVE A COLD - GET REAL!
On the outside, I just say ok, and roll out of bed, close the bedroom door and let him sleep for a few hours more. I resign myself to spending the day working around the big baby in the living room who has the tv on all day turned up really loud and leaves kleenex all over the floor and wants to eat every 2 hours. Is this how it is in your house???
Why do we not take a sick day for ourselves when we need it? I know I'm not the only one who just keeps on keeping on - I find it nearly impossible to just take a day off and stay in bed.
I think I'll give it a try today for a change.
I'll let you know how it goes :)
