I don’t have time to be sick

I don’t have time to be sick or catch a cold.  What Mom ever does? Right?  In my last post titled Attitude is everything and I’m still smiling, reminds me to continue to think positively and NOT get sick.  With go-live of the Epic electronic record at work taking place at 3 am on Saturday morning, I can’t afford to be ill.

My daughter Kristen, otherwise known as “the assassin” started to feel like she was catching a cold over the Memorial Day weekend.  She complained of a headache while we were away and rather than sleep in the loft with all of her fun but noisy cousins she wanted to be sleep with Mom in the bed.  And being a good Mom, you know that  I said of course.  BIG MISTAKE~~~ACCCCKKK!!!

Fast forward to Wednesday morning I began sneezing and you know that special tickle you get at the back of your throat right?  Check – got that going on too.  UGH, GROAN. Woe is me, nah, I’m still going to beat this thing!  Lots of vitamins, fluids and going to bed early has to help as I have to choice, but to plow through it.

I am extremely grateful that my family is pulling together during this really crazy time at work for me.  They are taking care of one another and me all at the same time.  Our nanny is on vacation ( I know bad timing-but she is so great she deserves a break too).  So my college aged daughter home from her freshman year is playing the part.  She is making lunches in the morning, getting the kids ready for school, the wash and then preparing dinners too.  I’m so blessed to have such a great family-one that pulls together.

So I will continue to ward off these evil germs that invaded my terroritory, push through and get the job done, just like any other Mom would do, because that’s how Moms like us roll.
