Okay, I'm going to go to go record and say that before this month is over, there is going to be a lot more discussion regarding this year's flu reports. We have been hearing all flu season how the flu vaccinations given this year "hit the mark" and did "pretty well" at fighting it off. Tell that to my school. We had someone come in and vaccinate the whole school in November and today we had a less than 40% attendance rate. The culprit, the flu. And it's starting to trickle out into our community. This may be the worst season in a long time.
Yes, that's what I had. Not lung cancer...not some strange illness. The doctor I saw yesterday said my allergen levels are showing high and my white blood counts are showing virus, but other than that I look normal, so I must just try to find some time to rest. But could someone please tell that to my laundry...my dirty kitchen floor...my daughter's soccer team...the church choir and sunday school classes...my afterschool program....my preschool class prep....my groceries...ummm...MY LIFE!!! Everyone tells you to rest, but here's the thing, what do you give up to rest? You can't give up your work, because you have to make money. You can't give up your child, because she needs you to be a mom whether you feel good or not. You may be sick, but you still need clean clothes. What gives so you can rest? And yes, you can tell me lots of things I can cut out, but it'll fall on a deaf ear because I am the ALWAYS IN CHARGE AND TOTALLY ON TOP OF THINGS MOM/PASTOR'S WIFE/TEACHER WHO MUST NOT FAIL!
So for now I'll just be a martyr and whimper and suffer and make you all suffer with me. And no, we haven't heard where we're going yet.
