My Aching Head

August 24, 2007

My apologies for not making my usual rounds lately. I’ve been nursing a head cold.

In fact, I’m supposed to work tomorrow but I’m sitting here contemplating calling in sick. Why is this something I have to think about? Because I feel I work harder at home than I do at work. Is that crazy?

If there was something in the Mommy Manual that says a Mommy is not allowed to get sick, I missed it. Don’t get me wrong, DH does try to help as much as he can. However, for some reason, the kids won’t go to him if I’m within a 100 foot radius.

Plus, it doesn’t help that our AC decided to go kaput during the hottest days of summer. I’m not sure if I have a fever or just heat stroke. In any case, I’m trying to visit a few blogs a day but I have to stop once my head starts pounding. I’ll catch up with all of you soon!

Until then, check out An Island Review where you can get info on how to win some of these fabulous prizes, not to mention $50 to Olive Kids!

The head cold seems to be going around right now. You are the third or fourth person to complain of it this week. I hope it passes quickly.

Sorry about the a/c. I’ve been there, done that, unfortunately. It is Murphy’s Law that it will malfunction when the temperature soars, of course! Hopefully, the repair folks are en route!?

Kailani - I’m so sorry you’re not feeling well! And I can understand the dillema of choosing work over staying home. There are days when I wish I had the choice of heading out for a few hours of work. I worked a little when Red was a baby. It was kinda nice…

Leaving tonight, finally, to go see new grandson.
I heard that one of my grandkids has that head cold etc going around. Blogs that I read have been complaining about similar symptoms.
It must be a nasty bug traveling the country.

Get well.

Well, I’m honored that you came to visit me last night, ill and all. I was under the impression, though, that airlines highly advise their flight crews NOT to fly if they have head colds and ear aches/infections.

Mommies don’t get sick days, didn’t they tell you that at the hospital when you gave birth? I got used to going in the bedroom and locking the door so that no little ones would walk in on me - they were forced to go to Papa for help.

I hope you feel better soon. Sorry to hear about your a/c , I hope it doesn’t take forevah to get fixed.

Yeah, don’t go to work, feeling like this. It’s one thing to be somewhere and can turn around and go home, it’s another to be up 10,000 feet, makes it harder to get home ASAP.

Take care.

I hope your aching head goes away quick! And that you have cool air flowing soon too. Both of those sound miserable! The pictures sure look enticing!

Be well! Sorry about your headcold and very sorry about the a/c. It should be illegal for air conditioner to go out. And a headcold at the same time..well, that’s just wrong! xo

I hope you feel better soon. I Mommy’s job is hardwe than any other job, in my opinion. Wouldn’t flying make a head cold worse?

You know what would make you feel better? How about a little R&R and a HSM marathon? I’ll be right over with a box of tissues and a couple of microphones~you know, so we can sing along!

Hope you are feeling better this afternoon!
