Last night cough cough it became apparent that cough cough my "ignore it and it will go away" stance cough cough with my daughter's non-cold cough cough was not going to do the whole cough cough go away part.
It dawned on me that if it kept the same patter then this mother dragon may well have to accede to her wishes of a day at home.
It not cough cough cough only kept cough cough cough the same cough cough cough cough patter, it cough cough coughcoughcoughcough heeee hack cough sort of accelerated and got gross.
When I awoke this morning, not only did I have that serenade but the ashen face of V with the news that he and his back were in agreement on not doing too much in the way of lifting, twisting, bending or stretching today - as his job is all of those factors continuously for up to 8 1/2 hours it meant that I would be blessed with his presence also.
But do you know what? I call this pronoia - never before has the multiplication of illness in my house been such a blessing - because they can keep each other company while I do what I gotta do!!
(Oh, add to that the fact that I got a phone call this morning from someone willing to pay me money (see last post)!!! Thank you universe.)
