Sick days for mom

What I don’t need is another sick body on the couch.

Mine, this time.


I feel some symptoms but hope it’s just fatigue, maybe a little virus, not that nasty flu/strep combo that is making the rounds around here.

“The worst in 20 years I’ve seen as a GP”, my doctor said as he wrote prescriptions for the kids.

My kids have suffered from viral infections before, but never strep. That was a first for them.

Hope it’s not strep for me. I don’t have time to lie around on the couch all day, we’re in playoffs and there’s school hockey, there’s endless snow to shovel and a million other things going on…

Everyone know moms don’t get sick.

Let me rephrase that:

Everyone knows moms don’t take sick days.


But lucky for me, my man offered to take one kid to the faraway rink tomorrow so I only have to go to the much closer rink with the other kid. Lets me sleep in and everything. 😊

And I’m resting tonight while he’s out at, you guessed it, a rink with a kid.

Hopefully by tomorrow I’m back in regular, normal hockey-mom form.

  1. One day you’ll be watching that kid skate out across the TV screen though, and will think they don’t remember those times when you weren’t well – until they are interviewed at the end of a game, and thank you for it (that’s the daydream anyway lol)

    1. One can dream…☺

      They just cancelled the far away game due to freezing rain. It hasn’t stopped snowing since Fri, so weather will be treacherous tomorrow….only one rink tomorrow instead of two, and a local one. 😉
