Desperately Seeking Nap

I would never whine without permission cough cough, but since y'all are ASKING... yes, I am still sick. Even worse, the husband recently contracted The Dreaded Plague also known as influenza. Poor, poor man. Please pray for me him. And there is totally no need to concern yourselves with me - truly - because I am fine as long as I don't do anything except lay on the couch. Which is oh-so-possible with a pathetically ill husband and an active preschooler.

These past two days I've spent my time dreaming of days when napping came much easier.


Much, MUCH easier...


Yet again, thanks for documenting that, Tonggu Grammy. And for more embarrassing walks down memory lane, check out Sincerely Fro Me To You at The Glamorous Life Association.

Sorry you are still sick and even sorrier that your DH is sick!! Its always hard when our hubbys are sick - hard on us.

Hugs,
Carla

Oh my! Y'all need to open up your windows and air that house out! Get out the Lysol and spray everything down!

If I lived close, I'd do it for you.

Is it Thursday already??? "Fro" thing again.

You know, falling asleep during your haircuts may have been a way of coping with sensory overload. Quatro used to zonk out at the beach, the circus, church, birthday parties...anything that over-stimulated him. It was kind of an inside joke to see how long he's stay awake before flopping over like a zombie. I have pics of him snoozing all over town.

Anyway...I hope all you sickies get better before the weekend. The flu stinks! Go take a nap!

Geesh, I hate it when people post duplicate comments! I didn't do that! The comment fairy did.

Michelle said...

I am so sorry to hear you are still sick!! And TH, too? You just rest on that couch and think back to circa 1980 and getting your hair cut. ;)

happygeek said...

Gotta hate the flu.
May you all be up and at it as soon as possible.
If you lived in the neighborhood I'd make you soup. Instead, I will send you soup-y thoughts.
You're welcome.

Andrea said...

So sorry to hear that the flu is still at your house. Prayers that you both recover soon.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Ooh boy. Sick men are so pitiful.
I hope y'all are all better soon!

The Glamorous Life said...

Okay that is hysterical!

I love that the 'unscrapable' photo actually came from a scrapbook- complete with commentary. That Tonggu Grammy....the original blogger!

PERFECT FRO post!

Brooke said...

that's great!! :D how funny. my hubs swears i have car-induced "narcosleepy"

Tammy said...

I sure wish I could fall asleep as easily and soundly as a child laying on bleachers or in the beauty parlor chair! :-) And that Tonggu Grammy is a riot!

Hoping your household is germ free very soon!

Upstatemomof3 said...

Oh that is too funny!! I could use a nap myself. And it isn't even 10am. What's wrong with me? So, sorry you guys are not feeling well.

prechrswife said...

Love the pictures, and take care of yourself! Sorry your hubby is sick, too.

Patricia/NYC said...

I'm so sorry to hear that you are still sick...sending healing vibes your way!

Wendy said...

Yuck! It's not fun being sick for this long. I am praying for you guys! All of you guys.

Polar Bear said...

Goodness this one is really nasty! I sure hope you all are feeling better soon!!

Aunt LoLo said...

LOL...that's hilarious! To this DAY I still get sleepy when I get in the car for more than half an hour. When I was a baby (remember, I'm a twin), sometimes that was the ONLY way Mom could get us down. She drove round and round our Idaho block...with two screaming babies in the back.

So glad there aren't pictures of THAT!

Jenny in Utah said...

It is so much harder when hubby is sick! Hope you all get better soon! And I can't believe you could fall asleep during haircuts!

Janet said...

I LOVE getting my haircut! I think I could fall asleep too, except I'm pretty sure my hair stylist would not approve. ;-)

Kayce said...

Your 70's pics always make me smile!
It's time to get better!!!!!

Peanut said...

A few months back, when we were all sick here (me included), I couldn't believe how hard it was to care for my children and my husband (who climbed into bed and stayed there for 36 HOURS!) I didn't realize my vows to care for him in sickness and in health also meant in MY SICKNESS!

I too have some pretty good spontaneous nap pictures from my childhood. Dog's dish, birthday cake...

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Really? You fell asleep during HAIR CUTS?!? You must have been tired. ;-)

Quirky Mom said...

LMAO!!! We are very different in this respect. I don't fall asleep anywhere that isn't a bed, in a bedroom. I've slept in a car, hmmmm, once. And in a tent when I had to. When I was a toddler we had to all pack in the car in the wee hours of the morning to take my (Navy) Dad to meet a plane for some important duty thing, and I never went back to sleep. My big sister slept through the drive, but I was wide awake. Fall asleep in a barber's chair? Hahahahahaha, not in a million years.

CC said...

I've never been a good napper. Really is quite painful to be on a plane for 12+ hours and be unable to sleep. :(

Shawnstribe said...

Noooo, now you really won't be able to get lots of TLC, men are dreadful when they have a minor cold....now the flu.....surely T daddy must be very hard work ; ) just kidding!!!

i will be praying for you, and of course T daddy : )

and thank you so much for praying for us, i'm trying to spread the news....can i use a lil bit of your space, or is it too cheeky???

Please pray everyone, here in the UK we dont have enough social workers to start a home study and i need one like....yesterday, please spread my prayer request, please.
Thank you TM (((HUGS)))

You fell asleep getting your hair cut??? Whoa, laid back child. Or exhausted.

I'm sorry you're still sick and trying to keep up with sick husband and busy child. EW.

RamblingMother said...

Sorry you guys are still so sick. Love the memory lane pic and comment. I fall asleep when male hairdressers wash my hair, no explaination or reason for the gender distinction other than more masculine hands washing my hair puts me to sleep.

Briana's Mom said...

Ick! I am so sorry you are still sick. My sister and her family are all sick right now too. Strep throat, ear infections and fevers. Maybe it will help a little to know you are not alone. :)

Muthering Heights said...

I hope you feel better soon - and that you get a nap! :)

PIPO said...

I am going to go do some mojo dance so the plague leaves your environs. Enough already.

Of course, I am doing the mojo dance too because my kid is sleeping like a lamb right now.

Jboo said...

Hope and the little one and your Hub are feeling better very soon!! We've been again at our house too -- little M caught a virus on top of her sinusitis -- I'm probably next as she's been glued to me for the last couple of days!! The weekend has GOT to be better, doesn't it!

Oh if your hubby is sick you need LOTS of prayer! ;)

Colleen said...

I'm sorry you are still sick and that Hubby is too : (
You do post the cutest pictures LOL

mommy24treasures said...

Saying a prayer for you all and for Ms T who probably is ready for you both to feel better too!
