Zombie Mom

Sounds like it could be the title to a new sit-com, huh? But I doubt it would get the ratings it needs to survive. Especially if it mirrored what was going on at our house today. 😉

I am the zombie mom.

There, I admit it! Last night I took Nyquil. Nyquil is not my friend. I’ve known this for many years now. I used to take it when I was sick in college. I’d take it right before hall meeting and by the end of hall meeting (15min later) I couldn’t even walk in a straight line back to my room!! So I got a little smarter and started taking half doses. That usually works okay. Last night was the second night in a row that I took a ‘half’ dose, so maybe that’s part of the problem. Or maybe the fact that I’m going on day 5 of this nasty flu is the real problem. Either way, this morning I was a zombie.

I somehow managed to get the baby fed, the lads fed, and Ella put back to bed for her morning nap before I put a “show” on for the lads and collapsed in a semi-comatose state on the couch. I dozed on and off, in-between times that the kids commotion demanded my attention till 11 am when I had to get up and feed Ella again. Blah! I feel like I could just “drop off” again at any moment too. In fact I’m quite sure that my body would sleep for a full 12 if not 24 hours and be content to do so. Ahhhhhhh!!!! 🙂

Anyway, I’ve sworn off Nyquil from now on. I don’t like feeling all hung over and out of it. And for now I’m a bit dizzy, probably because of all of the nasties swimming around in my head, and I have no appetite, and am still sleepy. So I’m going to do the zombie mom thing and put on a movie to entertain Qade and crash back on the couch for a bit while the other two are sleeping. Call me a bad mom if ya want to. 😉
