A Day Off
Sometimes, when you're a mom, 28 weeks pregnant and fighting stupid persistent cough, and you take a day off sick, it can look like this:
Wake up, drive toddler to daycare.
Come home, shovel driveway and sidewalks.
Drive to lab to get bloodwork done.
An hour later, drive to walk-in clinic where doctor suggests cutting all foods that make life worth living to fight heart-burn which could be causing the cough.
Go buy two cupcakes at Sprinkles and eat them.
Two minutes after arriving home, get phone call to come pick up inconsolably cranky toddler.
There goes the day "off".
