Taking a sick day

By Jill Pertler

I hardly ever get sick. I guess I’m lucky that way. Besides, I’m a mom. Despite what the commercial says, we don’t get sick days. It’s easier to take care of others when you don’t need anyone to take care of you. So it’s convenient to be in good health – robust and well with a constant and never-ending supply of acetaminophen and throat lozenges to dispense to the young folks living with you.

I’m tough, but unfortunately I’m not totally immune. I found this out last week when I got hit with a bigger-bugger of a cold. A common cold for goodness sakes. Usually I can barrel right through a batch of the average and ordinary sniffles. This time the sniffles conquered my entirety in an overwhelming manner.
