The aches and pains of aches and pains.

It’s times like these when the world seems to stand still.

It’s swirling all around outside, while inside, it’s stagnant.

The times when the parents of the house are sick.

The poor children are ripe and ready to play. They make plans to go here and there and everywhere, but the parents can’t even muster the energy to transfer the dishes to the dishwasher and repeat.

This is one of those times here at Messy House.

Things are getting even messier as the achiness and tiredness continue.

Note to the world: Mono sucks.

It’s confirmed that the husband is infirmed with it. It’s pretty much a given that I am as well. (I’ll be taking my 2nd blood test on Monday to confirm.)

These are times when things like “cereal for dinner” and “bedtime at 7” and “3-hour-long Spongebob marathons” happen.

THIS is the exact time when I wish to the heavens that my mama lived closer to take care of the children.

Damn. Now I shouldn’t have even thought that because I’mma start to cry about it.

Totally unrelated (but kind of related because we needs monies), my store is having a sale where you can take up to 25% off anything you buy until the end of September. It’s appropriately named the Super Sweet September Sale and you should totally tell all your friends. Pretty please?

Awww yuck, I’m sorry. Being sick is never fun anyway, but when everybody int he house goes down, it’s even worse. Have some virtual chicken soup?

So sorry… Had mono many, many (many?) years ago, and still remember how bad I felt. Wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Ok, maybe I could find a few people to wish it on… But I would never wish it on you. Get better soon!

I had that last year. But here we call it Glandular Fever. Sounds classier. You totally have that.

Rest up beautiful lady. Oh and Patrick too I suppose… 😉
