Bugaboo went back to school. I had such plans for today! Errands! Mopping! Laundry! Fabulously prepared dinner! Guess what I’ve done?
Nothing. Except sleep. I need it, yo. But it isn’t all out of selfishness. It seems I’ve contracted the second stomach virus in as many weeks. This time, however, it is accompanied by hives and a lousy headache. I’m going out on a limb to say that I’m fairly certain that these aren’t viruses, there is SOMETHING I’m eating that is getting me. When I eat peanuts I get this sick, so there must be SOMETHING that ain’t agreeing with me. Thing is that the past two weeks when I’ve been sick? The only thing I’ve eaten in common with those two weeks is Tomaters. As in, big, juicy, yummy, farm-fresh tomaters? If I can’t eat tomaters, I’ll be a very unhappy woman. VERY UNHAPPY. And if Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy, you dig?
The good news? Bugaboo is AT SCHOOL and I can actually SLEEP THIS TIME.
