Mommy Sick Day

Are mommies allotted sick days?

All day Thursday my head and my stomach hurt, but I pushed myself to keep going. After the kids and I spent Thursday afternoon at Murray Camp (one of our CarePoints), I tried to make supper. Halfway into it, though, I went to Ben and said, "I need you! I need to lay down!" I then flopped into bed in my clothes (which were filthy from being at the CarePoint--I didn't care), and tried to lay as still as possible. My body ached all over, and I finally succomed to the flu.

Ben at that moment took on my role and his. He's a good hubby and daddy. After feeding them eggs for breakfast Friday morning, he took all three kids with him to the office. Despite my discomfort, I was smiling when he left because I knew that what he was taking on was no small task. He then jokingly threatened to leave me alone all day (which he knows would depress me).

But they survived! Trinity found some scissors at the office and did a "craft" with a bank statement, but other than that everything went okay. They also went to the grocery store. Ben made supper for them that night: Nachos. What a guy!

So, today I'm at least able to sit and check my email. (Sorry for neglecting it so much lately.) I'm so thankful I don't get sick very often!

I'm also thankful for my man, for my kids, and for the way they banded together while I was out of commission. Thanks, Lord, for the "sick day"!

    Thanks for the wonderful hospitality you showed us while we were there. We all had an incredible time!
    I'm still thinking about your cake that you made! Any chance I could get the recipe? The spinach dip also. :o)
