Sounds Worse?

I have been fighting a cold for a week now and as colds go, it has not been too bad, makes me sound much worse then I actually feel. Got that sexy, hoarse thing going on. Today, however, that hoarseness gave me a good excuse to go home a little (only 15 minutes or so) early.

I had to make an announcement over the p.a. and in doing so, realized just how rotten I sounded. Hmm ... I thought ... the entire building just heard my hoarse, cracking voice. No one will think less of me if I go home right now.

And I did. Hung up the p.a., grabbed my purse and jacket and came home.

To do many loads of laundry and make dinner. A mother's work is never done.

(Dinner, by the way, was tasteless but the kids humored me and ate it anyway. I am seriously out of practice in the kitchen.)

Mucho thanks to Felica who found me via Sprite and sent yarn and needles for my kids. Thank you!

And one more aside, my knitting guy came in during lunch today and I got him going on dpns, making his first sock! Woo Hoo!

Woo!

Aren't the kid big enough to cook dinner? That might help at times like this when you're not feeling well. Plus everyone should be able to make a couple of things...

Not that I cook or anything....

But I could if I had to! :p

Feel better, sweetie.
