    The Differences In Being Ill

    I'm definitely on the mend from my horrible bout of dating the porcelain god. My whole body aches and I can't laugh because every muscle is sore. I know I'm feeling better because I had to get up and tidy up a bit. I couldn't stand it anymore.

    That's the difference between Mr. Sign and me. As a mother I am expected to be on duty 24/7 no matter what I'm feeling like. The world doesn't stop when moms get sick.
    I had to clean up the mess I made in the bathroom because no one else is going to do it. My kids and Mr. Sign would have left it knowing that I would clean it up. That's what moms do.

    When Mr. Sign gets sick, he expects everyone to stop what they are doing and cater to him. He strategically places himself in a spot where he knows I will be so that I can hear his moaning and whining. He wants me to suffer with him. I have no patience for this. If he suffered quietly, I would have more sympathy for him.

    When I am ill the only thing I want is to be left alone. Please don't touch me or ask me if I need anything. I would rather lock myself away from everyone until I feel fit to be human again. I don't want to bother anyone with my symptoms or worse yet, spread my germs giving it to another member of the family that I will inevitably end up taking care of.

    Enough of feeling sick. I'm going to run away with a biker gang. Don't worry about me. They have promised to take good care of me *wink*.

    The Biker Gang

    Thanks to all who have made this an awesome year. You have made me feel great about myself. I never thought anyone would care to read what a boring sign making mom would have to say. I look forward to what lies ahead for all of us.

    Happy New Year!!

    Again, a perfect description! What you said about being sick, how you want to be left alone, how your husband is when he's sick...ALLLLL of it!

    BTW: do you think I could hitch a ride with the biker gang? Surely one of them has a side car for an old broad like me!!!! :)

    Happy New Year, Jenn!!!!

    I'm risking getting bitch-slapped here...but I can't stand those biker dudes. Too much rippled muscles for me. Gimme something a little less rock-hard...ahem...
    well NOT EVERYTHING...you know what I mean!

    Do with them what you may, chicks. I'll be here waiting to be regaled with stories!

    SignGurl said...

    Buddha~You are so funny. I'm also not into such hard (ahem) bodies. They just looked like fun and made me feel slightly better.

    i like them ripped with a teeny bit of flesh on top... but i don't like them big ripped i like them lean ripped.

    climbers, swimmers... you know :)

    dude i have to say that i didn't get past the words projectile vomiting in your last post!

    I think as a Mom you need to form a union and go on strike. I hope should I ever get married and find myself in a simular situation that I am a little bit more caring and thoughtful but then, I am only a guy.

    Glad you are doing better Jenn. Happy New Year to you and I hope your year is filled with fun things (the bikers, a Mexican or two, etc. *w*) and not just never ending kitchen projects.

    Jenn, glad you are feeling more like your old self.

    On a positive note, you can now make up for all that you have lost by eating everything in sight.

    I've never seen the Biker Gang before but I would sure like to gang bang them. (especially the one 3rd from left, yum). LOL.

    May you and your family have a Wonderful New Year and I'll be seeing you in 2006.
