Bed Rest

Bed rest is usually something you hear when a woman is pregnant and has to stay in bed to keep the pregnancy going. It's also likely the only time that woman will ever have "bed rest". As a mother of three, and a wife of one, I do not have the luxury of bed rest. Is it because I do not allow myself that luxury? Am I not worth the time spent in bed to allow my body to heal so that I am stronger and able to care for my family? Well of course I am, but in the real world, moms just don't have time for that kind of vacation. And frankly, if that is how I get one I'd just as soon forget the vacation. Sometimes we simply do not have the choice and we have to perform the basic duties of the day because we are the only ones there.

I am not on my death bed...yet. Drama queen? Me? No way. I do have to be extremely ill to stay in bed. For one thing, I have control issues. See my previous post, "A Grand Adventure." I also know the house will fall apar…
