the green pill makes me sleepy

It's gotten to that point.

I have to be really sick to take cold medicine.

REALLY.

sick.

So last night my darling man brought home soup and orange soda and squirt and NYQUIL.

I have put myself under quarantine. I am not leaving the house. My darling Mr. Kaos volunteered to cancel band practice last night to take care of me. I only protested once before I saw the error of my insanity and said "yes" and "please" and "thank you so much".

After arriving home with my chicken Pho and seeing me he immediately held his breath in my general area.... I am carrying the plague... I am sure of it. I must look awful because he offered to work from home to deal with the child today too.

Why am I up now? The NYQUIL wears off you know. The last time I took it was at 9 last night. I am torn between taking it now and sleeping through the day or suffering this hacking coughing nightmare...

And when I say "torn" I should say "waiting for my kid to go to school so I can render myself unconscious"

It sucks being a mom and being sick. I hope you have taken your Nyquil and are sleeping now.

TAKE THE NYQUIL.
The dreams should be really good. And being sick isn't.
Mr.K is a good man and I am sure you will reward him well, much much later.

I hope you feel better. You are one of the most miserable sick people I know and it takes a lot of sick to get you there!

Take the Nyquil every time you can.

I have no idea what Nyquil is but I say take it.
And get better soon dear Camikins.
(Did that make you vomit? That's a good thing. Clears the airways.)

Hope you are feeling better.

CamiKaos said...

Lisa: Thanks... I am getting there

Jo: If I remember the old add correctly it is the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever so you can sleep and feel better medicine. It relieves a tiny bit of your symptoms and knocks you unconscious.

Kami: There was almost a vlog for tomorrow... but I saw my visage and heard my sandpaper and phlegm voice and decided to spare the world.

Julie: I hope your sickie is doing better too.

Flutter: I did. And I will again tonight and I'll be asleep by 9... and all will be good.

I never cared much for nyquil, it gives me crazy dreams... but since becoming a parent I've decided it is the only way to go when you are sick.

landismom: thank you

BW: you know it... but still better than K or Mr. Kaos when they are sick

123 valerie: ohhhh the feely... I feely better just hearing it

holmes: YO yo yo... you bring me that c yet man?

corey: oh the lullaby + the nyquil = blissful sleep

lindy: thank you

M, Syb: they are too messed up to recall properly

Lori: I does suck being a sick mom, and she is being SOO sweet drawing me pictures and bringing me movies...
