Ugh, sick. Kid A caught something a few days before he went back to Texas, and I must have caught it from him. All I did yesterday, after calling (more like croaking) in sick, was to read for maybe 30 minute increments, drink water and peppermint tea, and sleep. I charged up the laptop, thinking I might watch a movie in the evening, but there was no way I could stay awake that long at a stretch.
I’m not one of those brave sick people who hits the DayQuil and then makes it through their regular routine. Nuh-uh. This is my chance to rest, and I’m taking it. I don’t get sick often, but when I do, my expectations go down like a runaway elevator.
Better today. I’ve already been awake for a couple hours. I started a load of laundry (need more hankies), and gone around with Windex wiping off everything I’ve touched. I really, really don’t want to get Kid B sick. He catches everything so easily.
My big plans for today:
1. Eat something.
2. Go down to Walgreens for some Drano for the kitchen sink. Bad situation there.
3. Watch that movie.
Not yet, though. For now, more mineral water.
