David is sick. Again.
One week of school left, and he’s sick. We couldn’t make it one more week?
I’m angry. I really am. Not at David. Just at the world. I’m so tired of everyone being sick.
The boys eat their fruits and veggies, take their vitamins and get the daily recommended amount of sleep. Why do they keep getting sick?
It’s. Not. Fair!
Yes, I know I know life’s not fair. I tell David that at least once a day. But I’m having a pity party so leave me alone.
If I knew which kid at school gave this to him I’d…well, it’s a good thing I don’t know who he caught it from.
David’s missed something like 11 or 12 days of school this year. I’m seriously waiting for the truant officer to show up at our house. I think Michigan is one of those states that puts parents in jail for not sending their kids to school. Women’s prison might not be so bad. There probably aren’t any sick kids in there. If I played my cards right I could even get solitary confinement. That would be relaxing.
If David isn’t better by tomorrow he’s going to miss a really cool field trip to the beach.
Yeah, that’s what I thought. That teacher must be crazy dragging 24 kindergartners out to Lake Michigan. But she is. And David will be so disappointed if he misses it. (To relieve those of you who are worried, they’re not allowed in the water. They’re building sand castles. I think that falls under the science category.)
Now I’m waiting to see if the rest of us will get sick. I tried to keep Wade away from David. I’ve washed my hands a thousand times today. Would it be wrong to spray David all over with Lysol and bath him in hand sanitizer?
I don’t want to be sick again. Not when I was just getting caught up from the three weeks in May I was sick. Not when the weather is finally nice.
I’m not kidding when I tell you that I’m mad. I want to shake my fist at the sky or kick something or scream maybe.
I’m just so sick of sick.
Remember the boy in the plastic bubble? Where can I get one of those? The bubble, not the boy. The only question is do I use it to quarantine David, or do I move into it to keep the germs away from me?
