I am sure some single moms can relate to this.  The morning you wake up feeling sick as a dog and just want to stay in the bed all day BUT…YOU CAN’T!!!!  It is what comes along with being a single mommy.  I can’t lie….I have a strong desire to have a great man that will be a great helpmate and step up during times like this to take care of the daily needs.  It can be so hard sometimes.

Yesterday, I woke up about 3 AM dripping sweat and my throat felt like it was on fire.  I tried to take some medicine and go back to sleep but failed.  Thank God I have a caring boss who I called at 5AM in the morning to say “I can’t make it in today”.  She even asked if I needed anything.  What a blessing.

I laid down for another hour and then got up to take my daughter to school.  That’s when the fun began.  I couldn’t stop going to the bathroom.  I was completely dehydrated.  The night before I hadn’t even eaten because I wasn’t feeling well.  But I still had to cook her breakfast…still had to pack her lunch…still had to drive her to school.  I was just happy that she was feeling better because a few days before she wasn’t feeling to well.

I ended up going to the hospital up the street later yesterday only to sit in a hospital bed with an IV for about a half our.  They gave me a steriod too. Afterwards I considered playing in the Texans game!!! LOL!!

I tried to rest a little while as was at home and Alani was at school but you know how that goes.  I ended up washing the dishes…cleaning the sheets and wiping down the whole house with anti-bacterial spray.  I am a Germa-Phobe FYI!  I did take a nap eventually and ate some soup, drank some tea and OJ!!


It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.  I yearn for the day that I don’t have to do it alone.  Until then…we keep pushing!  SINGLE MOMMAS STAND UP!!!

**I feel much better by the way! :)
