Whole Lot of Nothing
Starting To Sense My View of the World May Be Slightly Skewed

The Ides of September

Can't blog. Busy clinging to bed for dear life, pleading with room to stop spinning and for bathroom to stop being so goddamn far away. And to also stop spinning. 

I spent most of the morning in Am I Sick? I Think I Might Be Getting Sick. limbo, not sure if I was just extra kinda tired, or queasy from too much coffee and not enough bagels, and then. Okay. Yes. Sick. Glad we cleared that up. Everything is nice and definitively terrible now. 

I'm not sure which child brought home the pestilence -- my money's on Noah, who said he felt like he needed to throw up on Sunday but did not actually throw up, because that's how it works. Their mild discomfort is your wishing for death. They sneeze once, your sinuses set themselves on fire and explode out your head holes. 

Wait. Why am I still talking? Why am I even trying to type right now? Everything on the screen looks like a spiraly black-and-white soup right now anyway, probably full of typos and delirious nonsense about karate kaftan tampon popsicle. Harpsichord! Whatever, ceiling fan ocean farquat tomorrow, zzibbt.

Remember that little girl you were talking about never having, yesterday? Yeah, you're totally pregnant...

(just kidding!! And possibly projecting the pregnancy scare I had when our own third child was a couple of months old...haha...erm...please forgive me?)

Also, get better!!

Awwww! So sorry you are under the weather! Hopefully it's a speedy pestilence and resolves quickly.

I'm so sorry! I also know what you mean about sickness affecting the parent in a MUCH more "meaningful" way than the child who so thoughtfully brings it home.

My son and I just went through that. He had the sniffles for about two days, and I think he may have sneezed a couple of times. Me? I developed a sinus infection that took two rounds of antibiotics to kill, and bronchitis that's still not completely cleared up three weeks after the fact.

Kids better be grateful they're so dang cute, is all I have to say at this point.

Rachel

Get well soon!

Karly

Even sick and spinny you manage to crack me up. Feel better soon!

"Their mild discomfort is your wishing for death."

My exact words yesterday when trying to explain to friends why what I thought was a mild case of the spit-ups with my son on Friday turned into me, prone on the bathroom floor through most of the wee hours on Saturday...discovering that I don't clean underneath and behind the toilet nearly as well as I should. WHAT IS THAT?

Oh dear. Feel better soon!

Amy-Hamlet's Mistress

You are surprisingly witty when so sicky. Feel better!!

Sally

The most unfortunate two word combo I've seen on the internet today: "tampon popsicle."

Thank you and feel better.

I just projectile vomited green pea soup while my head spun 360 degrees after reading this post. You post the flu, I get the Exorcist.

Feel better, I remember once watching the baby but being too sick to do more then lay in front of the stairs to be sure she didn't escape.

Rebecca

Can I just say that I can't wait for the post where you say that someone got to your site by googling tampon popsicle?!

Hope you feel better soon!

Jessica

Feel better soon!

Feel better soon! Gute Besserung!

Marie

Oh, honey, that is just miserable! I once got something similar while my daughter was still nursing. It was by sheer force of will that I got myself upright enough to go nurse because I was that determined to not give it up. Yeah, and last year when she got a cold, I got pneumonia. Good timez.

Hopefully, this too shall pass and soon!

ella

sounds a lot like vertigo

Michele

By the end there, you sounded like you were evolving (devolving?) into an REM song - Good Work!

Robin

How are you still awesomely funny when you're sick? I can't even write when mildly grumpy.

Dona

Sorry you're feeling sick.

One good thing about having been a teacher is that I rarely got my kids' illnesses because I'd had them all. My husband got the illnesses though and I was left to take care of everyone.
