Are you one of those people who imagines that you can control the state of your body with sheer mindpower? I am. I always truly in my heart believe that I can will myself to stay well, even when people are dropping around me like flies. Starting last Tuesday family members began..oh, lets just say...vomiting. Not everyone all at once. It crept up on us. First the baby, poor little Miss Personality. By the time she was recovering her mama was sick. Then by Thursday night, Handsome Lad was down hard, it was ugly. Kick Back Dude got it too, but was able to slough it off after a good night's sleep, sort of. By Friday evening, when they were on the upswing, Girlie Girl was aching and feverish. During all of this I was making pacts with any force that cared to listen.
I CANNOT BE SICK!
I WILL NOT BE SICK!
IF I SERVE EVERYONE SELFLESSLY, I WILL STAY HEALTHY!
That should work, right? It didn't. I spent Saturday night dead sick. Passing out on the cool, cool bathroom floor sick. Without the fun of being drunk before...
Luckily, I was able to get lots of rest on Sunday. I put everyone on notice and took to my bed, getting up only to run a load of laundry or two, and help the kids keep it together mealwise.
By the time I got up this morning, I was tickety boo.
In conclusion, even though it didn't work out this time, I am pretty sure that next time I can keep from getting sick like everyone else. Don't ask me how. If I told you my method I would have to kill you. bwahahahaha!!!!
