dilly dally or really rally

We don’t feel good today.  Parker’s been sickly since Friday and it seems the germs have found their way over to me.  Hello… come on in, germs.  You are most welcome here.

I’m currently faced with this dilemma:  give in to the sickness…stay in my pajamas and nap while Parker naps, or shower and put on makeup etc. and hope the whole look-better-feel-better thing applies to this situation (it can kind of be hit or miss, but in my experience it typically works).

I have a bit of a to-do list, so the second option would probably be the wisest, more grown up choice, and I am nothing if not wise and grown up.

And after all, I’m the mom now.  Moms rally, right?  I can rally.



1 [ral-ee] 

verb (used with object), ral·lied, ral·ly·ing.

1.to bring into order again; gather and organize or inspire anew: The general rallied his scattered army.
2.to draw or call (persons) together for a common action or effort: He rallied his friends to help him.
3.to concentrate or revive, as one’s strength, spirits, etc.: They rallied their energies for the counterattack.

I think #3 is the one I’m looking for.  The rally of the energy.  That’s the one.

Hey, at least we have this cool cow:


Plus I have book club tonight.  I didn’t finish the book, but I did read about a third of it.  Ok that’s a lie, I read four chapters.  I really tried.  It’s called The Real Lincoln, by Thomas DiLorenzo, and I just could not get into it.  I hope they don’t kick me out of the group.
