Things I learned while sick… 1


This weekend I caught a little something something that left me living on the bathroom floor for about 24 hours. I’m still not feeling 100% but have finally ventured from the world of saltines and being unable to move, to french fries and the Internet. After pouring my 5,000th glass of ice chips and ginger ale I had a moment of clarity.
Here are some things I learned while sick…
1. I am not invincible to germs.
2. I will never again say, “Oh, it’s okay, I NEVER get sick.”
3. Use hand sanitizer. Especially while  handling money and after doing hair feathers on students in a high school where the flu is running rampant. And then eating french fries. YUCK.
4. Don’t eat Chinese food at craft fairs. Ever. Again. You never know. You just never know.
5. Keep a paper towel in hand while eating Popsicles…unless you want a big, red stain on your favorite Grace Potter tee shirt.
6. Don’t drink water after tossing your cookies, no matter how thirsty you are. It will not end well. Stick with the ginger ale.
7. Facebook gets old.
8. Pinterest never gets old.
9. Comcast “On Demand” is amazing. While stuck on the couch I was able to catch the new fall premiers of Up All Night, New Girl and Pan Am. My favorite is Up All Night, which =my life.
10. My family is great. My hubby took over mommy-duty, my father-in-law brought me ginger ale at 7:30 am, my sister-in-law brought me chicken noodle soup, crackers, and Popsicles and my mom sent me text messages with get well tips from two hours away. I love you all!
So, this is what we do when Mommy is sick…
…spend the day in our stroller.Just kidding.

AJH begged me to put her in her stroller today and it worked wonderfully as a ten-minute babysitter while I recovered from bouts of nausea.

PS. And, no, I’m not preggers.
Don’t think I haven’t already been asked.

    I have to admit I was 1 of the people who dared to ask "the question". This was only after a couple pages of "Granny's advice" that my Mom used to give me & Granny herself, when my children were young. Being Priscilla's mother I was so relieved that she had so many considerate people to to help her out. Special thanks to my wonderful son-in-law for being an excellent father & taking care of Priscilla when sick. WARNING to anyone who doesn't know, if Cill can't eat, her evil hungry twin arrives.
