suck on this

That's what I was told as I was given a lollipop to lull my nausea. I knew it was going to be a bad Monday.

I seriously feel like I'm going to wretch.

I don't feel sick. My stomach just isn't right. Hasn't felt right in a few days. Last night's dinner consisted of wheat toast and butter. Tonight's feast was brown rice served in broth. Yum.
Aunt2Amara: Are you OK?
Mom2Amara: Yeah, I think it's my new meds.
And the days aren't any better. I'm a little flighty. I drove a mile from the Yellow House before convincing myself I left the garage door open. Of course, I get home and it's locked and secured. Kinda like when I put the toaster in the fridge, because, duh, that's where it belongs.
Aunt2Amara: Are you pregnant?
It's just after 8 p.m. I tricked Amara into thinking the best way to spend the evening would be to take a bath, get into our pajamas, and lay in bed reading trashy magazines Dr. Seuss.
Mom2Amara: Um, I hope not since I start a new job next week. But why the heck won't my Tums work? Fauch.
But then my stomach hurt just looking at the pages of her American Girl catalog.
BTW, Aunt2Amara, since you've put thoughts of maternity clothes and labor into my head, I thought you should be warned. Amara says Santa can't afford this for Christmas. But she insists you can.
It didn't help that I logged on as my alternative activity. Who knew blogging would be detrimental to my health? I watched video of a former coworker's desert safari and I got motion sickness.

So here I lay, in bed, with Amara's head buried under the duvet and her flashlight shoved into my calves. I think she's doing emergency surgery. Maybe she can find a cure for Mom2Amara's-itis.

I'm crawling into bed. Tomorrow has to be better.


  1. Sorry you don't feel good. I'm just starting to feel better ...
