Woe is Me..............

Well, for the last few days, this has been a sick house. I came down with some stomach bug Saturday night and it still is kind of with me. The Little Princess got hit with it as well a couple of days ago and she has not been her usually happy go lucky little girl. We have just felt lethargic.

Now here is the part I just don't understand. Why is when I get sick, the entire house just sees to fall apart within 24 hours? How can that possibly happen? What's worse is I have done a ton of laundry and have done the dishes and have picked up a bit here and there throughout being sick. Let's face it, we can't help ourselves. If you are the woman of the house, it is just your nature, sick or not, to still pick up and do this or that. I just haven't been doing my "normal" everyday level of stuff. And it shows! It looks like my home gets sick when I get sick.

I think we, women, need to put together a "sister network". When one of us gets sick, we put out the word and a "network sister" comes in and takes over our home while we rest and get better! LOL Yeah, right! Most of us are umm, well, control freaks and would be straightening up oursleves before we would let someone come in to clean the mess up. LOL

Okay, so I need to work on this plan a little bit more. In the meantime, I need to straighten up my surroundings otherwise, I will never feel better!

  1. Diann I hope you and the Little Princess are feeling better soon. Yes our homes fall apart when we are sick. I even get amazed at how much I do in a day and don't realize it until I Don't do it!!

  2. Oh, honey!! I SO understand! This house was hit last Thursday and 6 of us got it-I'm the sole survivor left standing (just barely-I haven't slept for washing sheets!) I haven't gotten a post together in a couple of days and was going to aim for tonight- we'll see. Mamas aren't allowed to get sick- we're the Super ones. Feel better- wish I could help

  3. Tell me about it! We had the stomach bug last weekend and it was a doozy and my house looked like it had been hit by a tornado come Monday morning.

  4. It's so true, we rule the roost in everyway!!~ Girl POWER!!~ Feel better soon!!~

  5. I used to have to make time to be sick! In other words, if my son was in school and I was by myself, I knew I had so many hours to be sick and the minute he came home, sick time was over whether I liked it or not.
    You are so right, we need someone to step in and take over. I guess this is what being a woman is all about.


  6. Sorry you are all sick! Feel better soon!!
    Hugs, Lisa

  7. I'm sorry to hear that you are sick :-(
    I know it's hard not to get up and do things around the house but try to get time for yourself to get better.

  8. Aw ... sick is no fun at all! Hope you're both feeling better soon.
    Hugs and blessings,
