So, I stayed home from work today. But, with a little rest & some medicine, I'm feeling better, thank you.
While laying in bed, watching "A Wedding Story" & praying to the "Get Well Soon" Gods, I realized that being sick as an adult is NOTHING like being sick when you're a kid.
When you're a kid & you're sick, your mom takes care of you. She gets you your medicine, fixes your meals, makes sure you're not too cold, not too hot & brings you fun surprises to make you feel better. As a kid, you can lay in bed all day long & you don't have any ADULT worries.
When you're an adult & you're sick, you have to get your own medicine & fix your own meals. You can't lay in bed all day because the household chores still have to be done. Those dishes you use to fix your lunch have to be put in the dishwasher. The dog has to be let outside to pee. Laundry still has to be done. Bills still have to be paid.
Shall I go on?
I guess there is bright side to all this. I know I'll get some special treatment from Matt when he gets home from work. He'll fix me whatever I want for dinner & take over the "dog duties".
And, if I give him my best "I'm sick" look, he might even watch part of the Miss America pageant with me.
