Home sick today...


For the first time in over two years, I am home sick today. Nothing major, and sure, I could have toughed it out. But I wimped out - really just needed some time. It has also been my first day alone in my home since before Max was born (2 years and 9 months, not that I"m counting).

Really, it has been just what I needed. I did laundry, dishes, cleaned the guest room, watched some daytime tv, and currently have Juno on. I also finally finished sewing Max a little cape I've been wanting to make forever. I can't wait to show it to him - he's getting so imaginative lately, and I can't wait to see what games it inspires! I'm sure there will be pictures to post....

I swore I'd take a nap, but for maybe the first time in my life I don't want to waste time alone by sleeping. And maybe today has just given me enough time to feel like I'm not drowning. Heck - I'd be sick more often if it meant I didn't have to be sick....

P. S. I have to confess feeling guilty that I am able to take a sick day - for all of my wonderful friends who are stay-at-home-moms, I fully appreciate that you don't have this option. And that stinks!

good for you, and stop feeling guilty!! Everyone needs a day once in a while.
And the cape sounds awesome!
