A post wherein I whine.

I have been sick! I am whining here because I am sure all of my friends and my family are sick of hearing about it. I am not a pleasant sick person. I feel like crap and I want people to know it!!!

***Hey, this is my blog, I can whine if I want!***

I hate being sick. My house has gone to pot, my children are being raised by the television. No one's hair has been combed in a week (I am sure rats have taken up residence) and I think my kids are resorting to wearing shorts, t-shirts and knee-highs due to lack of laundry being done. I have yet to see an end in sight.

Last Saturday I developed a headache late in the afternoon. I tried sleeping it off, but to no avail. Sunday my DH took the kids to church solo while I stayed home and shivered. I shivered for three hours...under my covers, with three pairs of socks on, a pair of sweat pants and a tank top, long-sleeved shirt and a sweat-shirt. I took my temperature...102. Then the plumbing problems started. Too much information, because lets face it, who really wants my details of how I lost seven pounds in one week.

I ache. My back is killing me, my knees get week when I walk, especially on stairs. Not a good thing since we have two full staircases of them.

If I stand up too fast, the world starts spinning. Hence, I park my butt on the computer chair if I am out of my bed.

Last night I started to get antsy to get out of the house, so I made DH take me and the kids to a nearby state park where they have a fantastic, kid-friendly light display. SO NICE, especially since you get to stay in your car and drive around to see the lights. Heck, it's Christmas time, they deserve to know it and they aren't getting it at home from their smelly mother.

This morning I felt half-way decent and I decided to try to straighten up my house. By 12:30 this afternoon, I realized what a huge mistake that was. I fell asleep at 1:00 and woke up again at 4:30. The headache is back, the chills are back and the plumbing started acting up again. Stupid idea to clean!

Yes, I know there are bigger problems in the world that I could blog about. War, famine, global warming, Brits partying problems. But I don't want too! I want to blog about me feeling like CRAP!!!!

Moral of this story, don't come to my house unless you want to catch this and become the next Christmas Scrooge.

Yuck. I can't believe you are getting a second round of it. I am SO sorry. How are your kids not catching it. That is a miracle. This too shall pass. AND THEN!!! You WILL get your house clean, you WILL get your laundry done, things WILL get back to normal. SO till then GET WELL!!! Don't rush it (I know that is easier said than done - I hate being sick too!) I really hope you feel better soon!!

Sounds positively suck-tacular. I think I had something similar a few weeks back. It was not pleasant for anyone that lives here.

Oh no! That sounds so miserable. I don't blame you for whining. You are entitled. I hope you are feeling better soon! Look at it this way, at least you'll be feeling good in time for Christmas and New Year's, right? :)

Poor you, man it sucks being the sick mom, nothing gets done, everything just piles up waiting for us to get better, it's horrible. On top of that, whatever it is that you have sounds like no fun at all and it has being going on for too many days.

:(
I weep for you

I hope you're on the mend. It's the time of year you don't want to feel crappy. :)

You have every right to whine! I hope you start feeling better soon, your plumbing returns to normal, you stop being smelly, your kids get the rats out of their hair, those 7 pounds don't come back, and you have the energy to do whatever you want.

Yucky! Nothing like being sick during the holiday season to dampen your Christmas spirit! I hope you feel better soon.

Oh, yuck! You poor thing!! Did you forget to get a flu shot? Cuz that's what it sounds like to me! :-( Hey, make hubby do some laundry.

In the meantime, get some rest and get rid of that crap! (no pun intended!)
