All last week I was sick. In fact, I spent the entire four day weekend in bed. Besides feeling sick, it was kind of wonderful.
I stayed in bed.
I didn’t shower.
I watched TV shows.
And I slept. so. much. I was smart enough to save this sickness for MLK weekend. Note to moms: get sick over the holiday so that your husband–or friend who is off work 😉 can take care of the kids and YOU can get a break.
To be clear, I was very sick. But beyond the fever, aches, and gallons of mucous coming out my nose–the most annoying thing about the ordeal was losing my voice. I HATE not being able to talk. It kills me.
I felt like Ariel in The Little Mermaid. Some big, fat, hideous octopus of a flu came and snatched my lovely little tune. And I just wanted to be part of your world, ya know?
I mean, I could talk a little. But I sounded like a mouse. A strangled, whining mouse. I made a video to show you, and I want you to know that this video cost me quite a bit of voice to make. If you look closely you’ll notice my neck gets really red and veiny by the end. Cool.
