Feeling a Bit Puny

Grandma always said, "Mothers aren't supposed to get sick."
Unfortunately, they do.

While there are countless cruddy components to being sick with tots running around, here's my list of good things:

• Piping hot eucalyptus bubble bath
• Steaming mug of peppermint tea
• Husbands who put kids to bed
• Freshly laundered, cozy blanket
• Hot buttered toast with honey
• Friends who check in on you
• The Cosby Show
• Small hands which rub your face sweetly

I'll be feeling better soon.


  1. I hope you feel better! It's funny, but I was feeling sick yesterday too and I had a steaming mug of black tea, a husband who put the kids to bed, a cozy blanket (maybe not FRESHLY laundered), watched the Cosby Show, and I had small hands rub my face sweetly.

    These things really are good things when you are feeling puny!

  2. I just love your new blog and am so happy that you are blogging once again! Hope you feel better SOON!

  3. Are you feeling any better this evening? I hope so, I've been thinking about you!!
