As if I didn't have enough to do, the kids are home sick. They aren't very sick, just getting sick and with all the germs running around , I thought quarantine would be best. I have to admit I am guilty of using a little throat tickle to spend more time with them. Mommy's prescription for a soar throat - extra cuddles in the morning and after lunch while watching cartoons and playing video games. There are some real benefits to being unemployed and stuck at home with no money. I'll take whatever 'joy' I can get from being cooped up in the house by myself.
