The life of the sick mom is like that cartoon above. The kids gets sick, they lay around, get pampered, waited on hand and foot until they are better. The husband gets sick, he lays around, gets pampered, waited on hand and foot until he is better. I feel guilty when I get sick, like I am abusing or ignoring my family. Alas, when the mom gets sick, she:
1) makes school lunches
2) makes breakfast
3) get kids and/or husband dressed
4) does dishes
5) does laundry
6) cleans up after family who had the run of the house when the mom foolishly went to bed early due to said illness.
7) picks up first kid from school
8) picks up second kid from school
9) gets dinner started
10) cleans up
Then, the family will actually ask, "So, mom...feel better?"
Mom then goes insane and kills entire family.
All I asked for was ginger ale. Did I get any? What do you think?
Yes, I'm bitching. Petty, unnecessary bitching. I'm sick...I deserve it.
