The Mama Cold

Also known as “no rest for the wicked”.
I’ve had a running cold now for over a month but due to the fact that I don’t have the time to rest, it lingers.
Lingers like the foul smell of your dog getting skunked.
It’s absolutely awful!
What’s even worse is that when I do get a chance to rest aka sleep, I’m usually catching up on some television or surfing the net like Tyler Wright.
It is moments like these that make me truly appreciate and respect all mothers out there.
Especially the ones that are running on pure adrenaline!
With all of the frustrations of being a parent and the emotions of trying to make things perfect it is impossible to take the time to truly heal.
I guess that’s what retirement is for.
