I was recently sick for an entire week. As a working mother of two, it was very stressful.

But because my children go to daycare, it was also — a vacation!

Thank you, bronchitis gods.

I got to lie in bed all day. I tried on all my clothes. I reorganized my front porch deck and also reorganized my kids’ bathroom. I even got caught up on the Bourne movies so I can see the new one!

It was amazing. I was so happy to just be alone.

So moms, when you get an opportunity to be sick, take it!
