Busy, Crazy, Sicky Week!

The writing of this post was done over a span of time.
Wednesday I wrote this:
My 14-year-old son came home from school last Thursday with a really bad cold. Then 16-year-old son caught it shortly after him. Well now, it is my turn. Although, I do not have a complete cold, I just have an all over achiness, headache, stomachache and crummy feeling from head to toe. Tuesday I was home sick. I literally called in sick, crawled back into bed, pulled the covers over my head, and slept until early afternoon. Neither of the boys has really missed any school. They are both in high school and feel that unless they are throwing up, they truly cannot miss any school. Me too, I am right back at work today. I long for the days when I was in elementary school, when I could stay home for a few days. My mom or my grandma would give me soup in bed, and my teacher would send home work and a note from the class saying that they hoped I feel better soon and get caught up on the work when I could. In high school there is no excuse for not having homework, even if you’re really sick. It is the student’s responsibility to find out the missing work and make sure they are all caught up on the day in which they return to school. For us in the working place, everyone wonders where you were and there is little post its all over your desk.
Sunday I write:
Well, I took care of all of the little post it notes on Wednesday. Thursday night at dance class my daughter had a great honor bestowed upon her. She and some of her friends were asked to join the dance competition team!! She is still beaming!! We are so proud of her. She works so hard. She wanted this so bad!
I spent Friday in an all day meeting. Saturday I cleaned the house all day :( I'm feeling a lot better now but my headache did not leave me until Friday morning. Today I am going shopping ALL BY MYSELF!!!!!!! My husband and I are going to a wedding in Manhatten next Saturday. It's going to be quite an elegant affair and I just don't have anything in my closet that is suitable. So as soon as I'm finished writing and posting I will be jumping in the shower, getting dressed and I'll be off to the mall- ALONE!! :)
It's been a crazy week and I've missed blogging!! I'm back! I'm still here! I look forward to reading all of the posts I've missed on the blogs that I follow.

So, here is today's affirmation:
"I am at Peace
Divine peace and harmony surround me and dwell in me. I feel tolerance, compassion, and love for all people, myself included."

Hey Maureen!

Glad you're up and around again. I know my family is helpless when I'm ill. I am sacred keeper of the food and socks. Everyone runs around bare foot and hungry when I go MIA. LOL

Ok... I'm off to the next post that I missed! See ya there.
