Friday Ramblings

One of the side effects of being a substitute teacher and nursery worker is being exposed to kids' germs.  Yes, I'm sick.  I have a cold.  Cough. Sneeze. Sniffle. Ugh.

This evening it's caught up with me.  My wonderful husband picked up fried chicken for dinner.  I cut out coupons for a little while, but don't really have the stamina to keep it up right now. 

Hopefully I can get to bed early tonight. A good night's sleep might get me back on my feet tomorrow.  Unfortunately I just hit the worst part of my cold this evening, so I'm not sure if I'm still getting worse or if I'll start getting better tomorrow.  I'm trying to avoid my temptation of loading up on carbs.  When I'm not feeling well, carbs are so tempting.  

I had a fun conversation with my 6 yr old earlier.
6 yr old: Today is Friday. You know what that means?
Me: What?
Her: Tomorrow's Saturday!
Me: I'm sick. You know what that means?
Her: What? 
Me: It means I'm sick.  (I then proceeded to bust up laughing.)

Right now three of my kids are making forts in the living room with my dining room chairs and some blankets.  I really enjoy watching them work together, though I do have to admit I'd rather see them working on the dishes together.  *sigh*  Hopefully before bedtime.
