All Highest Praises to Single Moms

I have the flu for the 3rd time this year. I have not had the flu for like, 2 decades before this. So obviously it felt it had some catching up to do.

And you know what? Karma socked me in the ass and I have a sore throat still. I don't think it ever got better from my hissy fit and just rolled right into a viral thing.

Teena was fluish about a week ago. Thankfully she has the decency to get sick on the weekend while there is a Husband to help out with either the sicko puke-o or the hyper unsick one. How do single moms do it????? I don't know!!! Now I am sick and he has dealt with the kids most of the weekend. I was fairly useless and had I been on my own, well, someone would not have survived this. Genea of course, rarely gets sick at all. She just brings the germs home, knocks us out with 'em, then steals all our candy.

(LMAO that's not true of course but it gave me the funniest image when I thought it and if it is not funny and just bizarre, well, blame the dayquil) (But it's true she rarely gets sick and seems to be a thing with kids from traumatic backgrounds).

Anyway, dragging my butt to bed. Hope I feel better in the morning.

Seriously, single Moms should get combat pay.

Dang, spell check doesn't like hissy, fluish or unsick. Stupid spell check.

NOW I am going to bed.


  1. Oh, you poor thing. Hope you feel better soon! Sore throat is not normally a part of influenza, so you could have something else - maybe even strep. You might want to get checked - meds could help, if that's the case.

    Funny about Genea. Come to think of it, Katya never gets sick either. I don't think she's been really sick, save for rare sniffly cold - ever. Must be all those good orphanage germs she was exposed to - built her a killer immune system.

  2. Yuck! Yuck!! Sorry you're sick. Dang it.

    Genea and the candy analogy. Too funny and so true. Amazing how they don't get sick.

    Combat pay.....I'd seriously go for that.

  3. get better, yes I think they should get danger pay. I had to do it this weekend while P was away and I was sick, it was not fun. Many movies were watched!

  4. I am so sorry you are sick!!! I hope you get better soon...gosh that sucks to keep getting the flu!

    I don't know how single moms do it either. I don't know what I would do without my husband.

    You are sick, but you still managed to make me laugh this morning!!

  5. I will totally go for combat pay!!

    My mom was a single mom with me for about 4 years and I remember asking her how she did it. She said you "just do". Now I am a single mom of three and have never experienced any different. She was right, you "just do". But when I am sick, I "just do" but I am VERY whiny!!

  6. I don't know how single moms do it either!

    Yes, incredible how our RAD kids can ward off illness.

    So sorry you're under the weather. Feel better.

  7. poor thing :(

    I dread getting sick because moms just can't get sick!!!

    Hope you're doing better now.

  8. sorry your sick, as for single mums, thank you its a nightmare when you are sick and they are too, as you are the only one they will go to, however you get to make all the dissions on things so thats pretty cool. :)

  9. Love the image of Genea sitting behind your door eating candy while you're perched, greenish, in bed cradling "the bowl" just in case you can't make it to the bathroom.


I love comments! If you agree or disagree, comment away! However if you are a butthead about it, you may be excised.
