I don’t have time for this . . .


I felt pretty human most of yesterday – until about 8 pm and the splitting headache and body aches resumed. I slept most of today. My family cheered when I actually took a shower before settling back down on the couch. Tonight, I still feel blah . . . I’m waiting out the next hour so I can take more drugs and go back to sleep. Tomorrow has to be better, right?

I had plans to go to the movies with my mom tomorrow, but as she and my dad are planning to leave for Paris in less than two weeks, I am not going near her in case this is contagious. Talk about an opportunity for laying guilt on your oldest child! “Honey, remember how you ruined our lifelong dream to visit Paris? No. No reason for the call. Your father and I were just sitting here flipping through the blank photo album – you remember the one I picked up with the Eiffel Tower on the cover – wondering if you remembered what you had done to us and our dreams. Gotta run, sweetie. We’re off to Denny’s for the all-you-can-eat French creep special.” (You all might want to spray your screens with Lysol just in case.)

Anyway, please cross your fingers that this is almost over and everyone else stays healthy! That or send clean clothes and groceries.

  1. Oh dear. I hope you're feeling better really soon.

    Our family is skipping Paris this year. Next year, we're not going to The Netherlands. The year after that, we're evenly divided on whether to miss Acapulco or Austria.

  2. Ami & Mom #1, this is exactly why my parents NEED to travel. The rest of us can live vacariouisly through them for the time being. Hopefully by the time we all have middle-aged children, we can go on our own cool vacations.

  3. Our vacation this year is visiting the family up North. My in-laws are not getting any younger and I know my hubby does not have a lot of time left with them. We are also going to see his grandmother who turns 99 in November! I think we'll try to get out to New Hampshire or Vermont for a couple of days as well.
