A Miserable Milestone
Well, I've done it. Couldn't be helped but it was bound to happen sooner or later. I've caught the first cold of the season. It's not a bad cold, mind you. It's one of those annoying half-assed colds that makes you feel all drug out and cranky but you're not really sick enough to get away with being the bitch you're being to everyone around you. I can still go about my every day tasks I'm just not happy about it.
The worst thing about this cold is I'm the first in the family to catch it. Usually everyone around me gets sick first and then, being the nurturing mother-goddess that I am, I eventually succumb. But the wonderful thing about that is you can, when asked, say that so and so gave it to me. And throw in a long-suffering shake of the head for good measure.
But no, this time I don't have that luxury. I am patient zero. I'm the one everyone else in the family can point to as the evil, germ-infested shrew who infected them. When they're lazing around the house, whining about their runny nose or achy joints I know secretly they'll be thinking it's all my fault.
