Like the tasty equivalent of a Red-Eye or wasabi, I am sucking down a tall, cold one, an original ColdBuster from Jamba Juice, trying to beat a nasty cold. If it doesn't let up by the mornin' I'll whip out the heavy medication...Sudafed!
Anyway, had to miss the kids today because I was too sick...sigh...the things we give up. I would love to give up work tomorrow, too.
But we know that's not allowed.
We know what's easy won't always work. Or, it may work for the short-term, and then REALLY mess things up for the long-term. There's at least four things I could do right now and backslide into the neediness again, especially when I am sick, but I feel so much better knowing that I'm not leaning on something that will suck from me after it's established that I am sick.
Robin was right.
I'm getting to the point where alone feels better.
