Day 2 of Mom’s “Sick Leave”

 (Originally posted on my old blog, December 4, 2010)

I did venture out to the grocery store yesterday.  It wasn’t too bad, however, it did wear me out and when I came home, I was ready to lay down.  I had sent a text to Kevin when I was ready to leave the store and by the time I arrived at home, he had the kids ready to come out and unload the car for me and then had them put the groceries away.  Which was sooooo nice.   He then, ventured out and picked up dinner for us.  All this, and he’s still sick too.

The ones who are feeling better and have the energy, yet still coughing, are the kids.  They’ve been having a marathon of sorts of their favorite shows.

It looks like our house may be selling.  We have an offer.  It’s looking like a possibility.  So we’re starting to look for a place to move to.

So, today is the second day of mandatory rest.  I did venture out to Weight Watchers but didn’t stay for the meeting.  I did have a favorable weigh in, so that was a perk in my day.

Today, I either have no voice, or when I do have one, I sound like a barking seal.  At some point today, I had to answer a question that my son asked and then he asked, “Why did you say that so softly?”.  I answered that I couldn’t answer loudly.

So for now, I’m camped out on the couch watching “You’ve Got Mail” (my son came out after his room time, saw what I was watching and asked, “Have we passed the swearing yet?”)
