lunchtime thoughts



i'm currently under the influence of heavy doses of dayquill,
so if this post is extra random: tis why.

i'm sick.

yesterday, me, my fever, the comfiest pillow in the house, a roll of tp [the classiest form of kleenex], the trusty remote, and one of deb's famous flannel blankets chilled on the couch all day.

i'm lucky 'cause my kids are professional putter-ers & self-entertain well.
there were toys everywhere, coloring fests, and pillow/blanket forts streamed all over the house.

at one point livy emptied an entire bag of sunflower seeds all over the floor and none of us cared.
it was awesome.

myron checked in occasionally with us girls, while he was out working hard @ both his jobs.
and i think he wore dirty/semi-not-clean pants to work, without a word.
*love him for it.

after the tv-trifecta of sickdom {dr. phil, the dr's & oprah}
chloe said to me, and i quote:

"mom, a covenant is a two-way promise.
can you like, promise to get off the couch &
i promise to watch my show instead?"

{true story}
i died laughing.

***

in a few days,
when i'm all better,
summer officially begins over here.

*bring on the sunshine.

Oh my sweetness. The good news is she knows what a covenant is....of course the bad news is that you are sick. Bah!

Alison said...

Oh poor you! It's the pits when Mommy is sick. Hope you're up and around soon. If I was there, I'd make you dinner. :) (Oh, and nothing wrong with floor food. I seem to remember a time when two of my children ate a whole box of Rice Krispies off the floor while I watched from the morning-sickness couch. They survived just fine.)

Lori said...

Well she does know what a covenant is . . . I hope you can make this covenant with her soon and be able to get off the couch soon. Wish you lived closer and I could help you. Nothing is worse than being sick, but having to take care of someone else. Hope you are on the mends soon.

OMG! I can so relate to your Dayquil overdose! There is definitely something going around Arizona right now--doesn't seem right that we should have colds when it is 100 degrees outside!!

I look forward to reading your blog and "getting to know you!" Stop by my place and say hello when you are off the meds--or before! ;)
