We need a sick day policy.

I am sitting with a stuffy nosed Spanky trying to swallow water. I have lost my voice, my throat feels like it is filled with razor blades. I. am. sick.  And wouldn't you know it's a crazy Monday with swim lessons, fashion design class and tutor lessons. 

Who do I notify to do my job of chauffering, making lunch, doing laundrary, cleaning home and watching four children?

I wonder if there is a temp agency I could call?

Here's hoping for a better post tomorrow ;)

you poor thing!

my health tip: eat GARLIC RAW...it will burn at first but it will really help your throat...seriously! take a BUNCH...like 6 at least of a capsule called IP6...it's an immune booster...no drug. DO IT DO IT DO IT!

I'm with ya, sister. I get tempted to bring all my kiddos to hourly childcare when it gets too bad :)

Feel better

Oh, I'm so sorry.

I'm all for sick days, but what about crabby days?

Hope the days goes as smoothly as possible.

I hope hubby plans to be home early! Start oding on the vitamin c. And, good luck. TV days work well when I'm sick.

Feel better! It's so hard to be sick and take care of everyone else. Where's Rent-a-Mom when you need one?

i am so sorry you feel so sick, I think you should brainstorm on a mommy's sick day agency!

On Elizabeths comment, I did the raw garlic and put it at the bottom of a bowl of soup and with in an hour I felt hugely better. And definately at least 6 -8 large cloves of garlic.

If only there was a temp agency, I'd totally abuse it! Especially if it were free!
