Slacker Mom

I guess I asked for it. I ended up taking the weekend off. Saturday was partly intentional, but I came down with a stomach bug* in the afternoon.
I spent the rest of the day on the couch or in bed leaving the kid wrangling to Tim. Today has already shown much improvement; I can hold down water.

I’ve received an illustration of what I normally do in a day, becuase it hasn’t been done and it shows.

The house is a wreck, but it’s going to slide. It will be a day of cereal, frozen pizza, and whatever I can toss together for dinner. Days like today are when I miss having cable. Movies and naps are the only thing on the agenda and if my stepdaughter dares complain about being bored, well, she’ll learn a lot about the art of housekeeping.

*Stomach bug is such a mild term.

So what you’re saying is that everyday you’re the household hero? I hope you feel better soon.

Meant to include a big ol’ 😀 after that first sentence. Darnit.

Poor thing… hope you’re all better now!

What a cute pic of Tim and Mark!
I hope you’re feeling better now.
