What a weird few days we’ve had. Schools were closed Thursday and Friday because we had 2 probably H1N1 flu cases (one now confirmed) which has had us all in a weird holding pattern as the state decided to close some schools until May 14th. (Not ours! Yay!) On top of that, we’ve had Armageddon level storms that have brought tornadoes and flooding all over our area. We find ourselves torn between coating our hands with antibiotic gel and hiding in the bathroom with mattresses over our heads.
MrZ and I went out on our first real date since AndyZ was born. We went to dinner and a movie at a restaurant in an outdoor shopping area that had us eating at one end of the complex and seeing a movie at the other end. We walked between the two in the rain. I was in flip-flops and Honest To God lost my footing over five times. The only reason I didn’t bust my ass every time was because I was forcing MrZ to let me hold onto his arm while I walked. He hates that stuff – so that’s a clear sign that he was worried I’d break my neck. Which I almost did. Several times.
So, between 2 days of being a SAHM (how do some of you do it every day? I was so tired!), everyone talking about the flu and germs, tornado sirens going off 4-5 times a day, and seeing my life flash before my eyes as my ass heads to the ground in front of 100 people at the movie theater Saturday night, it’s not wonder that I’m completely thrilled to finally be heading back to work this morning. Not only am I thrilled to finally be able to hand my kids off to someone else (SERIOUSLY – how do you SAHMs do it?), but I’m also glad to be rid of Mother Nature, damn her and her destructive winds and her flooding sidewalks.
(Let’s don’t talk about the fact that it’s supposed to continue raining ALL WEEK.)
So – how was your weekend? Did you spend any quality time in the bathroom with your family? No?
