I remember a commercial where a mom goes to the doctor, he tells her she's sick, she flips through her calendar and says "Not this week" (or something like that). This is exactly how I feel about illnesses. I don't have time for it.
I have time to care for sick children. I don't have time to be sick myself. Fortunately, most of the time, the bug waits to get me until all the girls are healthy again.
We have our schedule down to an exact science. A sick child makes me have to tinker with the schedule. A sick parent throws the whole thing out of whack.
Right now we have a cold working its way through the house. Nothing too traumatic. The girls are home from school today because they're hacking away. I figure today is a good day for all of them to rest and regain their strength so tomorrow they're ready to go back to school. Unfortunately, I woke up sniffling and sneezing, so I figure it's not long before I start feeling the effects of this cold, too. Oh well. We've been germ-free for a few months, so I suppose it's about that time.
