I miss work.

It doesn't happen very often, but occasionally I miss work.

I miss the paycheck.
Those are cute shoes...

I miss the adult interaction.
Did you see Survivor last night?

I miss clear and concise goals every day.
We need some help with these spreadsheets.

I miss sick leave.

You heard me. I miss sick leave.

I miss taking my kids to daycare, calling in sick, taking NyQuil at 8 am, and crawling back in bed.

Now, it's just another day, except Mom feels like crap.

Yea, I was going to post the other day about how I don't get sick, blah, blah, blah. But here I am, coughing so hard my kidneys hurt. Snapping at my kids during dinner last night because the only place I wanted to be is in bed. Trying to figure out what meds we have at home because today is a "Mommy Day" for the toddler and I don't want to drag her out in the -4 F weather.

Every so often, my old life comes back to haunt me, and today is one of those days.

Now... Off to raid the medicine cabinet.

Oh, sweetie! If I were there, I would come over and take care of both of you.

I hope you feel better soon.

I totally understand. Mom's need a number to call in sick to.

I feel the exact same way!! You are not alone, it get hard sometimes when the only people you have to talk to out of the day are a 1 year old and a 3 year old!

I too find myself missing the financial part of working, and the adult time.

I really miss the shoes, etc though.

I hope you feel better!!

Poor baby! Rest, rest, rest.

If I was there I'd wrangle the kids so you could sleep.
