Mother Torture

+ enlarge
 

I’m sick as a dog. Sick, sick, sick. When I talk to people on the phone, they feel like they should wash their phones, faces and hands after hanging up. Still, at least today I am alone.

Yesterday, I was this sick AND the kids had a day off from school.

I believe that there are few experiences more worthy of the title “Mother Torture” than the following combination:

  1. Very sick mom
  2. Kids’ day off school
  3. Day after Easter, rich with loads of Easter candy

Okay, if the power had gone out and I had lost my ability to use the TV as a surrogate mother, it would have qualified as Gitmo-certified Mother Torture. Luckily, we had power.

It’s nearly 2 p.m. I guess I’ll go to bed.
