You Know You're Sick When...

1. Your State is severely flooded and you ask, "Has it been raining?"

2. Your kids stop referring to you as "mom" and start referring to you as "that sick lady."

3. You don't remember what food tastes like, you've lost 8 pounds in 6 days, and your husband refers to you as "the tiny person."

4. You characterize your illness in phases, and have made it up to Phase 7.

5. You are too weak to shower, but are forced to by the disgusting events of Phase 5.

6. Your house smells as bad as you do.

7. You are convinced there is no way you could possibly sleep another second, and then fall asleep in the middle of playing a board game.

8. Your kids aren't even tempted to wrestle with you when you're sprawled out on the floor.

Awww SHUX! I'm so sorry to hear that you're sick. Hope you are up and around again soon. If I were you I'd go ahead and call a maid service now to come in and clean what your 'helpers' 'cleaned' while you were out of commission. Otherwise, you're just gonna get sick all over again. ;-\ xoxoxo

This was written 2 days ago. Are you any better yet? I certainly hope Phase 7 was the peak.

Forgot to mention in my other reply...are you going to tell us the stages? I think it would be very educational for everyone!
