as I laid on the floor of the bathroom last night shaking and praying “Please God spare me!” over and over, I had a few interesting thoughts…. even came up with a “rotovirus, rotovirus” poem. Fortunately I remember some of it….or UNfortunately, depending on how you look at it. 😕
Chemotherapy for instance was one thought. I thought of my grandma and all the times she had chemo treatments and how sick they made her. I thought of Jake’s cousin who had chemo back in December and as a mom how helpless that must feel to be that sick and not do the things that make you feel like a mom.
I thought about the person who designed the first toilet. Really, why that shape? Maybe I just have an ugly toilet though… it is quite ugly. Why not something more asthetic, easier to clean, different colors perhaps? Ya know, white shows EVERYTHING. 😕
I was grateful that just two days prior I had cleaned the bathrooms TOP TO BOTTOM so the fact that I was now laying on the floor with a sheet, pillow, and blanket didn’t bother as much as it would have three days ago.
Toilet paper holders… since I stared at one for a better part of the night I realized that we don’t even USE ours. Any of them really. We’re not toilet paper holder fans. In fact, all the little spinner things that actually go IN the toilet paper roll are all MIA. I would like to just fill in those holes in the wall and put the TP on the back of the toilet. Or a TP stand. Or pay someone to stand there and hold it for me. No? Yeah, NO. SOMETHING other than the roller though. Hate those things.
I hate you.
you make me feel so blue
won’t you go away
just how long will you stay?!
You give me the urge to purge
the noodles I had for dinner
and hug this ugly porcelin throne
while saying words that would make me a sinner!
they say you’re the quickest way
to lost those last 5 pounds and make me 1 size thinner!
will all due respect
I’ll keep my 5 pounds and size 8 jeans
I’d rather lose that weight by eating salad greens……
or something like that!
and that was about the extent of it. Thank goodness right?! 😯
Now I will hopefully attempt to shower and get dressed today and take care of a few things. The world doesn’t stop just because you spent the night on the cusp of throwing up. No no… laying on the bathroom floor all night doesn’t get you out of Mom-Duty either.
Where’s my sick leave? 😕
