Yes, indeed, a sick mom is not a good thing. I have been stricken with this icky tummy thing that has been going around. I just want to go to sleep.... I just am hoping that the kids don't get this, coz a mom has to deal with sick kids, and can't just go outside and play, like the kids can when the mom is sick! I'm so sick I haven't knitted! I did read this book (and I think I have the strength to find a link) Debs At War. It was pretty good, but as another reviewer points out, it's hard to keep straight who is who. But, interesting none the less.
And now I'm going to have a wee lie down.
