When Mommy's Not Feeling Well

By Thepracticalmommy2 @PracticalMommy2
Today did not start out too well. I have something akin to 'vertigo' or a stomach virus of sorts, as I found out at 3am... I was so dizzy I actually walked into a wall! I couldn't see straight. It was pretty terrible. I'll spare you the extra details.
So here I am now. I have my two kids and my niece here by myself. I am well enough to at least monitor them, not necessarily play or do any chores. I tried doing the laundry, but I thought I was going to pass out.
Sometimes, mommies just have to 'be'. The kids are sitting here with me, just chilling and watching some Word World. At least it's educational, right?  We'll just spend the day relaxing, and I think they're fine with that. We're all still winding down from the busy holiday week.
If I were still working, this would be doubly bad. I'd have to deal with work while ill and then take care of the kids and house when I returned home. Ugh. I don't miss those kinds of days.
Relax. That's about all I can do at this point. That and pray my husband doesn't have to stay late at work....
