I just lived (barely) through FOUR long and oozy days of caring for a tot with the stomach flu, only to get double whammied one day into "wellness" when my oldest got the flu next.

Calgon, take me away!

I really need to get away sometimes. Like now.

I'm thinking I'd like to get in the car and drive a few cities away and meet my girlfriend for coffee and a walk and a talk and a long and leisurely dinner. I think I might have to send her a note and see what she's up to.

When you have a bad day or a bad week, do you fantasize and make an escape plan? Do you ever follow through on your plan?

health, sick days

I definitely dream about getting away but actually getting out involves me driving down the street to the coffee shop followed by the fabric shop, lol.  I don't actually get to go anywhere and when I do go to these two places it's MAYBE twice a month and NOT when I REALLY need it.  I'll definitely take what I can get, though!
