I feel like the parent in those DayQuil commercials “Moms/Dads don’t take sick days.”
My smug ass finally got the flu. My mom and I have been in a war of wills for the past decade over the flu shot. I never want to get the shot, because I always feel flu-ish after I get it, and some years, they say the shot is useless. I got the vaccine while I was pregnant, and last year, too. But, this year I started in with my cries over how the shot makes me feel yucky and managed to slink away unnoticed.
But now I have the flu, and I’m like WHY DIDN’T I GET THAT SHOT?
I’m taking Tamiflu and I feel like I am on the upswing. *Fingers crossed* I haven’t had the actual flu in years, maybe decades, and I have never been this sick with a child. It’s the pits. Today I’ve been bailed out because my husband is working from home. I also have my mom who lives super close. K is tearing the house to shreds. I have taken up residence on our couch. We are a hot mess.
It’s K’s birthday week, and it’s already off to a rocky start.
