On Sunday, both of my kids woke up with a runny nose and watery eyes. I was fearing the worst, but they both seem to be fine. The runny noses have persisted for several days, but otherwise they have been happy as clams.
Yesterday my husband started getting sick. He is a complete wreck. He has the same symptoms as the kids, but he looks like hell. And he is not happy as a clam. I am sitting here praying that I don't get sick too. Can you imagine? Coughing would probably kill me. My back is really fucked up. I have to hunch over when I walk, otherwise the pain in unbearable. I have shooting pain down my left leg that radiate around my knee cap. Sometimes, it literally hurts to laugh. Yes, coughing would kill me.
So, my family is sick and I am broken. My house is a disaster. I have made no progress on painting the bathroom. I have very little patience with my children. And finally, I am having trouble sleeping - what with all the back pain and my husband's snoring. Blah. I need a stiff drink and a bottle of Percocet.
