They Call Me Nasty...Nasty Nose

I have been sick. Sick, sick, sick with some kind of summer flu. We have been battling pinkeye which seems to have taken over the daycare. Chloe had it first, then Jack, then Chloe again. Then Chloe came down with a sore throat and cold, then Jack....then me! I am taking the longest getting over it because unfortunately I cannot spend much time taking care of myself and relaxing. Dinners must be cooked. Butts must be cleaned and clothed. Money MUST be made so I am trudging along trying like hell not to drip snot into my customers food. Trying not to look like death warmed over as I shiver, sweat and pop up cold sores. Ech!! It's been fantastic!

On the bright side of things, I am going to Boston in August with two of my girlfriends to visit my wonderful friend Jenn before she moves back down here. Yay! A vacation! Things have been super stressful around here with money being tight (daycare costs me a whopping $280/wk) and other misc. things that life loves to throw at you. Whatevs, bitch! Bring it ON! I can take it! Ok...so some rambling. Everything is looking up on the money front. We will be back on track soon enough and life will be clear sailing for a little while at least, thank goodness. I DO need a break...this trip couldn't come at a better time for me. It will be nice to not be so freaking responsible for a few days and just have some serious girl time. After kids, you learn to appreciate it so much. I never realized this before. It's a good thing. A very good thing.

Sorry about the cold. It's been going around every where. A vacation sounds so good, though I'm sure you'll miss your babies. Every good mom deserves a break.

Have fun on your vacation! You're right, those girl times are precious. I'm taking a little break end of July. I'm SO looking forward to it!

I knew they called you nasty, but I didn't know anything about the nose! JK:)

Hope you're feeling better & I miss you.
