The Odd Mom is Out of the Office - Just a head's up that I'm sick and would appreciate the opportunity to bravely decline your offers of attention

Last week I had sleepless nights while bringing down 3am fevers and wiping up puke as all three kids got a nasty virus/cold. Now, I sit here with head feeling like it is in vice grip, a throat that feels like it had a date with sandpaper and kids that now feel better.  

Do I get a parlay or something?
