This has been one crazy mother of a weekend!
I had been mopping around the house, feeling sorry for myself... mostly because I got ANOTHER cold! Which reminds me to thank all those careless parents out there who take their kids to the store sick, send them to school with the swine flu, or drag them to church sneezing and coughing with green snot running down their little faces. News flash: It doesn't make you look strong, more spiritual, or dedicated to education or your own career to expose your sick child to the elements, other sicknesses when their immune system is down, and flat out unfair to expose other children and adults to it either! No, it makes you look like a complete self-centered idiot. Can you tell that is a major pet peeve of mine? Good grief!
While I was shopping the other day, my kids in the cart, with a girl friend of mine, a mom and her kid pulled up next to us. The kid was coughing uncontrollably all over us! The mom just acted like nothing happened. Even though I disinfected us all after, it was too late. ALL of us, even my friend woke up sick yesterday morning. Erk! Can you feel my frustration?!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE parents, keep your sick kids home!!! And yourself if you are sick too! No one wants your cooties!
I had my girlfriend come over and watch the boys this morning to I could venture out in the snow and cold to run to the store to stock up on cold meds, nasal sprays, and cough drops. As I was headed out, there was a lady in front of me that was a dead ringer for my friend that was supposedly watching my kids -- what the heck?! She was coughing and sneezing all over the place no mouth bothered to be covered... I knew it wasn't really my friend, and my suspensions were confered when I looked at her feet and she was wearing flip-flops on cold-red toes. Any wonder she's sick, huh? Anyway, I could never be friends with someone who wore flip flops in the snow... Common sense is important to me.
