I said I wanted to be quarantined, when the kids had gloopy snot pouring out of their inflamed little eye balls. I wanted a mini vacay, hiding in my room, enjoying the quiet, having someone wait on me hand and foot. I wanted to avoid the cooties, the icky eyes, the aggravation of it all.
You don’t always get what you want.
Here I sit, at my computer at 3am, squinting between gloopy eye boogers. I’ve been infected. Not cool.
It started with terrible allergies that I believe turned into a sinus infection. I don’t know if it was a natural progression from the sinus infection, or if a rogue kid cootie attacked me when I wasn’t looking. But I am most definitely hit.
There is no hope left for me. Don’t look directly into my eyes, it may very well cause nausea. Let this be a lesson on how incredibly dangerous being a mommy can be.
Go on now, save yourself.
