Oy Vey

just when you think you have everything under control, G-d reminds you who is the Boss. He is. Big Time. The last few days i had been so proud of myself that i was not stressed, that i was on target with all the barmy plans. Ha, I say, Ha bloody Ha! Woke up Sunday morning with a major scratchy throat – by end of day fever was sky high, I was achey, cranky and totally hoarse! Now who’s stressed??!!

but sick or not, things have to get done, and get done they will. i am calling in my support army to help me, even tho i hate asking for help, but push is coming to shove and i cannot risk my health more than i have already.

my boys have told me in polite terms to shut up. my voice (or croak) hurts them. i wont hug them right now coz i dont want them getting sick before the BM. They, bless ’em, keep bringing me tea and OJ and keep telling me to get back into bed. i make a horrible patient – after 5 minutes of rest i am dying to get up.

the family invasion starts in two days – that means i have two days to get my act together, to get better, to get the house in order, to finalise all the BM plans, and to find a serene look for my face to wear – what are the odds that i can manage it all?

Have a good thought for us, ok? will try to check in soon.

  1. do you take a multivitamin every day? I used to get sick nearly every single time something stressed me out (travel, big deadlines at school, big stuff in real life…) but then I started taking a multivitamin every day and I haven’t been sick in like a year at least…

    otherwise, do what you’re doing…drink lots of things with vitamin C in it, and turn off the AC if you can…recycling air can make you sick or prolong sickness, and the heat will make you sweat some of the sickness out. If that all fails- well I once taught a class I couldn’t miss while I had the flu, by taking 3 dayquil right before class. I’m not sure if that’s the best idea though, as I kept forgetting some basic English words in the middle of my lecture that day.

    Good luck with everything! And mazal tov!

  2. Hope you get better soon… and good luck with the family, the BM, etc.
