No sick days

*scratch, scratch, cough, cough* That is me. It seems that I have come down with a little cold/ear ache of some sort. It started yesterday with a slight irritation in my throat and now, it REALLY hurts to swallow, drink, etc. I'm also really hot and dizzy. As much as I'd love to sleep all day and wallow in self-pity...moms don't get sick days. So, I must plow on. I have Weight Watchers tonight though I'm not sure if I will gather up enough energy for the 30 minute drive to the meeting site. I'm sincerely hoping that both girls will be good to me today so that I can take it easy. I will, however, have to make a trek to the market to get some cough drops or something. *sighs* I hate being sick. I'm just praying that neither of the girls gets what I have. Nothing more pitiful than sick kids.

Awww..... :( I'm so sorry that you are feeling sick. It's hard enough to be a Mom, let alone a sick Mom. :( I hope too, that the girls take it easy on you today. I am soooooooooo impressed with you weight watchers success, you motivated me!!! You go girl! :) I hope you can get to your meeting tonight, but if you need the rest to get better, just stay home and heal up, there's always next week's meeting. Hang in there and feel better!
Love,Lauren :)

Poor baby! It is hard to be sick and take care of the kids too - hope you get as much rest as you can...weight watchers can wait.

Are you a tea drinker? The reason I ask is because it seems whenever I have a cold or cough - a cup of hot tea with lemon and honey in it seems to help. The steam from the tea helps my nose clear up a little and the tea itself seems to help my chest. Tea doesn't get rid of anything - but it is soothing for a little while. (It's my allergy relief sometimes too)
