He Said: “As Luck Would Have It, Part I”

January 29, 2010 by  

My better half is heading out for her 2nd of 19 girls weekends today.  (OK, I may be joking about the 19 girls’ weekends.  It will be closer to 12 for the year, but this IS already her 2nd of the year.  Awesome.)

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m all for Momma having fun – it keeps her refreshed and in touch with her friends, but it also allows some leeway on the things that I want to do.  Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned…

My head was killing me yesterday morning at work, and only got worse through the day.  Add a fever, the chills, and a cough and, you guessed – Dad just got a visit from the flu bug.  Great, super.  I tried to keep it from Kat as best I could, but I’m pretty sure she knew. Maybe it was my grumpiness, or the fact that I couldn’t stop coughing on the phone.  (Or, that I mentioned to her that I wasn’t feeling well during our first call of the day.)

Additionally, we have THIS coming our way – a nice, late-January snowstorm in central NC.  This is a place where school is canceled due to the THREAT of rain – the last two times schools were closed here, there were sunny skies and not a single snowflake in the air.  I can only imagine how this place will be over the weekend with 7 inches of snow on the ground.   Oh wait, I won’t know – I’ll be stuck in the house, sick as a dog, with 4 kids destroying our home.

I guess a girls’ weekend, the flu, and a snowstorm in the Triangle could be the standard definition of a Perfect Storm.  Enjoy your time away, babe…you’ll have your work cut out for you when you get home!

Part II of “As Luck Would Have It” will be posted on Monday…provided I survive the weekend.  I’m a big kid when it comes to snow (or roller coasters, the beach, bathroom humor, video games or banana splits for that matter), so hopefully I’m feeling up for sledriding and a snowball fight!  Details to follow Monday…
