Being sick sucks. The whole family being sick at different times and having to deal with it at all times sucks. It amazes me how much a household relies on the mother/wife/lady of the house aka ME. I have a mountain of laundry. I’m hoping to scale that mountain later on today. I haven’t cooked dinner in…2 weeks??? Wait, that can’t be right. What have we been eating? Have we eaten? It’s been a long 2 weeks out here. Granted half the time we were at my parents house, but still.
It started with Jenin. Passed to me and Rami. Then poor little Maysoon got it. We’re 95% back to normal. It wasn’t H1N1. Just a nasty stomach bug.
So Eid Al-Adha came and went while I was still out of it a bit. I feel bad because I didn’t get to decorate the house or do anything really special for the girls. Jenin kept asking me afterward when we were going to put up some lights. I’ll have to make it up to her next year in a big way. If it wasn’t for my little sister bringing them outfits from Palestine, they wouldn’t have had anything new to wear for the Eid. I didn’t even make any cookies or anything. Not a good Eid at all. The only good part was that it was Black Friday so I scored some good deals on their gifts.
