The weekend went by so quickly for my household. I’ve had so much to take care of in such a short amount of time:
- My partner’s birthday
- My daughter’s still recovering from her surgery
- My partner was sick with a cold (and gave it to me!)
- I am sick with a cold
- I had to do my mom’s taxes
- My mom has gone away on vacation
If you’re lucky, like me (I say this while rolling my eyes), you have no assistance when you’re sick. That means that everyone you know acts as if you aren’t sick, and expect you to do everything that you normally do, without offering to help! Yes, it doesn’t matter that I feel like an eighteen wheeler has run over me a couple of times; oh no! Sick, or not, I still have to clean, grocery shop, cook, do the dishes, do the laundry, get this, get that, etc., etc., etc.
Yesterday was my first break. My daughter finally went back to school, my partner went to work, and I got to sleep in for an extra hour! I hate being sick.
