About nine hours after I said I was fine, I discovered in no uncertain terms that I was not. I guess cuddling with a sick kid has it’s risks. Today I’m still feeling blechy but not nearly as bad as yesterday. It’s a fever and a headache that are my worst problems at the moment. […]Read More: I spoke too soon
I should have learned that procrastination doesn’t pay. So often, when I decide that I can put off a pile of tasks, something unexpected happens. Days like that require me to put aside birthday shopping and black-pants-finding plans, and instead spend the day, from 4am on, holding a barf bucket for a poor little person […]Read More: I really should have learned by now
Oh, poor me. I was finally feeling like I was at the end of my cold. It had been two weeks and I just had a bit of a cough left. And then WHAM! BAM! POW! I had a sneezing fit this morning and have been congesting up more and more as the day progressed. […]Read More: Holy relapse, Batman!
So I got up this morning with the intention of doing the bare minimum to make myself presentable for the bus stop. Still feeling the pressure of a congestion-filled head, and planning to spend my day taking care of the various sedentary tasks I have to complete, I put on a pair of grungy sweats […]Read More: Say cheese
I guess illness is never exactly convenient, but I do feel like this pressure in my head, this congestion, this sore throat, and this fatigue really could have come at a better time. Truly. I mean, geez! I have to leave for Baltimore in 2 days and my to-do list doesn’t look much better than […]Read More: Woe is me

It’s bringing out the ham in me, and I never realized that she existed before. Kind […]Read More: It’s a sickness, I tell you.
Some days when the boys are home from school, I get all domestic and get in the mood to take care of laundry, clean up the kitchen, maybe catch up on some business email. This is not one of those days. When it became clear to me that the guys were hunkering down for a […]Read More: This is not one of those times
I dropped Eamonn off at preschool this morning and decided to take action and do something about my desperate hair situation. My bangs were down past the tip of my nose and I’ve been grousing for a month. I went someplace different than my usual, and on the way home I passed the Salvation Army […]Read More: The Accidental Thrifter
So, I went and got myself a head cold. It’s not my favorite thing in the world, that’s for sure. I’ve pretty much wanted nothing more than to curl up under a rock all day. I’ve shirked all responsibility except that of the motherly kind today (I actually did alright in that department – we […]Read More: Curses! Foiled again.
