The Plague

The plague has settled in on the Bio Girl household.  Well...either the plague or the common cold.  But with the amount of mucus we have flying around here, I am going to stake my money on the plague.  It's been a great holiday weekend, as I am sure you can imagine.

To make matters worse, I managed to have my back pain flair up again.  I can just hear the conversations now:

Caring Stranger: "Oh, you reinjured your back?  How did you do it?  Working out? Heavy lifting?"

Me: "Well you see, I was in the middle of the MAJOR sneezing attack..."

On the more adorable side of the plague, yesterday I put Henry down for his nap and was laying on the couch (reading of course... about 600 pages into Voyager) and I had one of the many sneezing fits of the weekend.  Once it was over and I blew my nose I heard a tiny little voice yell from his room. "Bless You, Mama!"

Good lord I love this boy.  Anyway, all three of us seem to be on the mend.  I can swallow without wanting to burst into tears.  I actually slept rather well last night.  It looks like the plague might be lifting just in time to get back to our busy lives.


  1. Sorry you've all been sick, that sucks! Especially the hurting your back. I pulled a muscle in my chest during a coughing fit once and gosh it didn't half hurt when I went to work the next day and had to keep lifting babies in and out of cots etc!

    Bless Henry, he's so darling xx

  2. Don't be embarrassed by hurting your back due to the sneezing. My supervisor cracked a rib from a coughing attack back in April. It happens. Feel better, friend.
