“The Sick”

We’ve been battling “the sick” in our house for what seems like weeks. It’s gross, ugly, and turns patient mommy into frustrated mommy when she is woken up by insistent coughing and cries for medicine in the middle of the night. But no matter how tempted I am to run to the clinic over a…

Losing Empathy

After a week of being sick, with what I would describe as shards of glass and tiny knives stuck in my tonsils, I informed my family that we would all be going to the clinic. None of us were getting any better and I was tired of drinking tea and eating soup. I missed tasting…

When You Turn 31…

I caught a cold this weekend. I know! So what. Mom’s get sick all the time, deal with it. I took Tuesday off to recover, blow my nose 100 million times, snort, smear Vaseline all over my raw nostrils, and take exuberant amounts of meds. But I did not feel rested. My hubs’ boss thought…

Zombie Love

I’ve heard the theory that the world will end in the year 2012. I’ve watched my fair share of zombie movies, with thanks to my brother. I’m cautious about washing my fruits and vegetables, hand sanitizing, and ensuring I get my family checked out if I suspect one of us is ill. I’m certain I…
