i do not like to admit to illness. i like to pretend it never happened.
but the strep that was so awful for Caden-8yr and Seth-6yr came back for Ethan-12yr and for me. my mother jumped in and helped take kids places and pick up prescriptions. Ethan-12yr and i went to the doctor yesterday and now we’re popping pills and keeping a pretty low profile. (low, as in flat against soft horizontal surfaces)
i’m getting there. today i put on a pair of FABULOUS new shoes, courtesy of a Christmas gift card, and decided to look a thousand times better than i felt (not hard) and really just fake the sickness away for a few necessary hours. i told my mom it was ‘shoe therapy.’ and it worked. and then i came home and faceplanted for a few hours. shoe therapy is always worth a shot, but it has its limitations.
i have a very quiet weekend ahead. yardwork if i’m up to it. faceplanting while wearing bunny pajamas if i’m not.
that’s what’s up with the short, slightly weird blogs lately. i wasn’t admitting illness.
okay, i’m still really not. i mean, it came and it was gross and i’m still tired… but i’m in the getting OVER it phase. i don’t HAVE strep. i headed it off at the pass. yes. that’s what happened here.
i’m fine. that’s all i meant to say. hi. and, ‘i am fine.’
Ethan-12yr is attempting to ‘get on the leaderboards for a clone wars adventures tournament.’ that’s what he said. he’s at the computer at my desk.
so if i’m ‘fine’, then Ethan-12yr is probably ‘way more than fine.’
and ambitious in a really cute, geeky way right now.
this is more ‘nothing’ than my usual brand of nothing blogging. I KNOW. but denial can easily do that to you if you’re not careful. i will be careful.
