On Children and Pets

The older child was a hellbeast all weekend. Hyper and whiny and refusing to do her schoolwork.

The little child was sick all weekend. Nose running like a faucet and screaming when we laid him down.

Now of course, I'm sick. Nose running like a faucet, head like a heater, feel like death served cold. If my weekly deadlines hadn't been pushed back a day due to the holiday, I would be home in bed today.

Why didn't I stick to a cat? I never got sick from my cat.

There's still schoolwork?

My 5-year-old has been a pain the last few days as well. I'm hoping that there was a full moon or something and it will stop soon. Today was MARGINALLY better.

fiona - we homeschool, so there's always schoolwork. And she did nothing during the week, so she had to do some over the weekend.

I hope there was a full moon, too. That would make me feel a LOT better.

I never got sick from my cat! Hilarious!

Wait, you HOMESCHOOL? How did I not KNOW this? MORE ABOUT THAT!

I also want to know more about homeschooling - it fascinates me.

If it makes you feel better, one of our cats puked on the other cat this morning. And then both of them ate it. The end.

Argh. Feel better soon because I need your address to send you a book!

Shelly said...

Tessie - thanks!

okay, I'll write something about that.

Shelly said...

Shauna - alrighty!

Shelly said...

Alice - HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Yep, he certainly has.

Shelly said...

Overthinker - hi and welcome! Valid point. In the immortal words of Goldmember, "That's just gross."

Hot - you now have it. Sorry for taking so long. Was at death's door.
