Still sick.

Still really sick, if I am to be completely honest.

Zinabu just topped off his afternoon with 3+ hours of computer time. Normally he gets 30 minutes a day. It has not dawned on him yet that I am letting his time go on and on to infinity. His eyes must be incredibly bloodshot and tired. I can only guess, though, since I am upstairs in bed.

I got Lily and Carver set up with things to do after school so they don't have to come home and listen to me hack and snuffle. Last night Lily started crying and when I asked her why she said, "Are you going to die?" I assured her I wouldn't, but even now--based on how I feel--I suppose it's a possibility. David would not miss the wads of tissues littering the floor on my side of the bed.

And yet, despite my weakened state and horrible appearance, I still have the gumption to tell Lily we are naming the dog Mr. Darcy.

Ack, I hope you feel better soon. Wish I lived close by so I could help! Sending virtual chicken soup and a huge hug. (sure sounds like more than a cold to me :( )

I shudder at the amount of screen time my kids put in over the last 2 weeks. But you gotta do what you gotta do to survive this time. Your junk definitely sounds similar to what we had here - it is HORRIBLE, isn't it? Like the worst I've felt in a really long time. It takes you out at the knees for daaaaaays. Hang in there. This too shall pass.

I am so sorry, I hope you feel some relief soon. Hope Z is enjoying the computer and shows his appreciation by eating what he's supposed to and going to bed good for you.

Good luck and get well wishes coming your way.

you've got to feel better soon ... if we had any healthy vibes at all we'd send them to you, I think it's better we all just keep our vibes to ourselves. I'll send good thoughts.

So sorry that you are still sick. That stinks!

But, I LOVE the dog name. Who doesn't love Mr. Darcy????
