A Sick Day for Mom
I caught a cold. Runny nose, sneezing, congestion, body aches, etc. I'm taking sudafed and ibuprofen. I had to cancel our date night tonight, which I was really looking forward to. I'm grateful I'm sick this week and not next week during Christmas. I feel bad for my kids. They've watched a lot of movies the past two days, while I held the couch down.
JB was a champ and came home early from work yesterday, bundled up the kids and took them shopping, to "Old Macdonald's", and then to look at Christmas light displays. I sat in the quiet house, watched TV, snuggled in my favorite sweater that Heidi gave to me, ate chicken noodle soup and munched on grilled cheese. JB returned home with our rosy-cheeked and happy kids, put them to bed and brought in a huge box of oranges, which we happily ate while watching the Bourne Ultimatum. He also rented Harry Potter 5 for me. It's nice when moms can have a sick day, too. I'm feeling much better today.
