The following is a recipe for a successful “gear up to moving week”.
#1. Make sure your children get Strep.
#2. The lovely 48 hour cultures, since my children never test positive on the rapid test. So the lovely Strep has 2 days to grow and torture, before meds are given.
#3. Get Strep yourself. Even when you don’t have tonsils. Which seems both impossible and like a cruel joke.
#4. Pack up large bins and leave them in plain sight of said “sick children”. Who rarely act sick, but can not go to pre-school.
#5. Watch children unload and throw items with wild abandon as you lounge on the couch nearly incapacitated.
#6. Have your husband have to be at work at horribly early times, leaving him tired upon arrival.
Need I go on….
There has been nothing.nada.zilch.zero accomplished to move this family across the country.
Including the things I have put on G’s list…just saying.
I will, however, commend G on tolerating me while I am sick.
Which is a fate worse than both children being sick.
I can be mean. And require A LOT of foot massages.
You read that right….3 years ago!!!
I miss those big chubby cheeks. And pink knit hat.
