Remind me...

Remind me not to eat Jambalaya the night before coming down with the flu.

Remind me to watch where I step...an incontinent old dog lives here too.

Remind me to guard the doors carefully or the declawed cat might get out and leave me searching in the darkness and rain for him, fearing he had run away and causing me to break down in front of my three year old son.

Remind me to stock up the house with throat lozenges (had to throw that word in there for Steve), because Sam doesn't care if I feel like crap and will still ask me a zillion "why" questions.

Remind me how lucky I am.

Remind me it's not all bad.

I'm turning on the cartoons for Sam and crawling back into bed, bucket by my side.

***Addendum***

I'm NOT pregnant. Got my period yesterday. It's JUST the flu and the normal accompanying digestive pyrotechnics. Though it's not all bad...I do get a very low and husky phone-sex voice as a bonus.

Well damn. I'm sorry you are sick! That just sucks. I'll remind you that you will get better and to try and hang in there.

Poor thing...

Heather said...

Oh dear. I really hope you are feeling better soon. After surviving 7 weeks of morning sickness I know how hard it is being "mommy" when you're sick. Hope you can gets lots of rest!

Oh, I'm so sorry you're sick! I haven't had the "bucket" sort of flu for many years, thankfully, but can remember well the last time I did. :(

Feel better soon.

Any illness that requires a bucket can't be much fun! Hope you feel better soon. And I like the dragonflies -- pretty colours!

Julie said...

I was sure I commented here this morning! Well I hope you are feeling better soon:(

also I had a dream with you in it last night/this morning. You and Stephen and Sam came to visit and the thing I remember most is that you laughed and laughed this big raucous belly laugh constantly. It was nice to think of you that way:) Be well.

I hope you feel better soon. I find that when I'm away from your blog I alwasy wonder what your up to. It is cool how these friendships are built. I hope you have a speedy recovery.
