I’ve been ill for so long I’ve forgotten what it feels like to be well. 

Mainly I’ve been sleeping and feeling sorry for myself. “The house is a mess!”  “Why won’t someone wait on me?”  “My husband must hate me!”  The one thing I have yet to fret over, though, is the lack of schooling happening around here.  I’ve been happy with a routine in place and the kids getting dressed and fed.

Plus, I reason, if they were in school-school and the teacher was sick, they wouldn’t be getting all that much anyway.  What does a sub do?  Show movies (not happenin’ here!!!) and assign the wrong homework.  Sweet.  I can so do better than that.  Even on my death bed.
