    Have you seen it?

    It would seem I have successfully hacked up a lung. I'm thinking I may need that later in life.

    I love being sick. I held this cold off for as long as I could, but after Team Keli left, and I entered my post family funk, it hit me full force. Last night I slumbered peacefully in my NyQuil coma, but as soon as my alarm went off this morning, the coughing began again. I've started to make a kind of game out of it. I like to see what color the phlegm will be. Hey, I always look on the bright side, you know that.

    Now my house has gone to hell, and my kids look like orphans, and I have no energy to care about any of that. I'm out of Diet Pepsi, and chocolate, and I need to go to the store. What's a girl to do? I guess I'll throw on the same clothes I've been wearing since Monday, stained shirt and all, and head to Wal-Mart. I may not even have to get the baby dressed. It is only Wal-Mart after all, she'll fit right in in her diaper and unsnapped onesie. On top of all that, I have to think about what's for dinner tonight. That alone causes a coughing fit, almost as if in attempt to bypass the dinner making all together. I guess I can always pick up a whole roasted chicken for dinner. That's always a crowd pleaser. Peel up some taters, and cook some frozen corn, and that there's a meal. I feel better already.

    I hope you have a coughing fit free day. And just in case you don't, check out the phlegm and think of me.

    So nasty!!! Thanks for sharing. I hope you feel better soon. I always hate when I'm sick because somehow I still have to take care of the kids and continue on with life. But when Jake's sick......that's a whole different story.

    I am sorry that you are not feeling well. I am glad that you had a great time with your family.

    FYI, I wanted you to know that I am going to start being a regular blogger. I just updated my blog and changed it around a little. I hope you enjoy it.

    Poor Keli. That SUCKS. If only you could call in sick and drop the kids off somewhere to have some peace and quiet. I guess you would have to be a man to be able to do that.

    Did you see the Man Cold video on Hannah's blog? Dude, it's so true. If only we could act like men when we're sick. I thought about using that as post fodder, but I just didn't have the time or word power to do it justice.

    I'm sorry you are sick. I have an idea, why don't I just come back and take care of you. That will give us both a break!

    I knew you were getting worse. You are so gross. I think being sick is a perfect opportunity for Sean to cook dinner. he makes a mean Pancake.
