I've Got Nothing

Oy.

The Mayor and The Rooster were sick throughout the Thanksgiving holiday.

Post-holiday traffic yesterday made what should have been a seven hour drive take ten and a half hours.

[Aaaaaahhhhh!!!]

K took both children to the pediatrician this morning only to learn that they have raging ear infections and, trumping that, freakin' pneumonia.

PNEUMONIA!!

Oh, yesirree.

The Joys.

Well this totally borks your Mother Of The Year chances.
There's no way those kids can hit the campaign trail with you now. You might have to go "maverick" and bring aboard someone completely unqualified and embarrassing to be your Vice Mother Of The Year. I nominate myself.
Oh wait - that strategy didn't seem to work either.
Never mind.

Um, yikes. We've got the plague here. Fighting valiantly, I might.

We are. Not the plague, that is.

It's going around... Try to get some rest yourself so you don't wind up in the same boat as the little people.

Gah! Misery. It is so dern embarassing when you have been (or worse, are) on a trip and the kids are diagnosed with pneumonia. Bad Mom squared.
Best wishes for speedy recoveries winging your way.

What is up with everybody and their offspring pulling up ill'n' over Thanksgiving weekend?!?!.

Ear infection and colds here...I think/hope we've done our dues with pneumonia, kid and I both, for a while...

Hope your household pneumonia is short lived and well resisted.
