"I cannot be a Mom today,"
said, Lisa-Marie Jensen the first.
I'm rarely sick, but this is a doozy,
definitely the worst.
My cough is all hoarsey
my throat is raw
Kendon suggests the doctor,
A few reasons why that just won't do
I'm not going anywhere, reasons one and two:
I can't leave the comfort of this old couch,
and take the kids with me,
I'd be a huge grouch.
Not convincing? You need some more?
Why I'm not going, reasons three and four:
I can't get warm, I've got the chills
I'll just stay home and keep downing IBU pills.
Last but not least, my hair's a sight
And I've still got pride, yea that's right.
So, I'll just stay home in the disaster the kids are makin',
when the house looks like this
you know I aint fakin'.
Thank goodness for Kendon
he's been in and out
only leaving for work when a call comes about.
So, why am I blogging I'm sure you'd ask
I'm trying to fake well,
but it's only a mask.
So for another day, maybe two,
you'll find me on the couch
Boo Hoo Hoo.

What's that I said about pride?
I must really like you, my bloggy friends, or I wouldn't post these horrific pictures!
My sisters and I always say, "Bigelow girls are NOT cute right about of bed, but we fix up alright."

Poor you! I am sorry you are not up to par today. Rest and drink lots of least that's what my mom used to say.

At leat your poetic brilliance is at its prime when you're sick! That was great!

Christie said...

You are TOO GOOD! Even when you're sick. I couldn't write a poem that well when I'm healthy.

Get better. Keep blogging. Ignore the house. :D

Stephanie said...

Hey Lisa- Wow, I saw your post on my blog and I had to check yours out. WOW, I think I have had it up for like 3 days reading all your past posts and looking at pictures. You sure have a lot of children...;D just kidding, but I was suprised that you had three. Not sure why. BUT, your children are adorable, I love how each one has their own distinct look, but yet they all look like a perfect combo of you and your hubby. Adorable.

A creative poem when you're miserably sick...amazing! Hope you're feeling better soon.

Jenibelle said...

Oh.....insert sad face.....
You're amazing, you composed "The Ode to Feeling Like Crap" when you actually felt like crap. Impressive. I wish I could help!
There will probably be some BIG news this weekend!! I'll call!!!

Lauren said...

You are so impressive! Such a brilliant poet while feeling like death warmed over!

Feel better, friend!

Oh you cute girl. I'm so sorry. I hope you get better really soon! I'll have Kendyl cast a get better spell on you (she's been casting spells on everything lately)

Anonymous said...

you are awesome! did you write that yourself?!

holy cow, imagine your writing when you're healthy!

Grandma W. said...

Honey, you should have gone to the Dr. like Kendon suggested! He could have stayed with the kids long enough for you to do that if he was in and out all day! I sure hope you are feeling better now!!!
It is awful when MOM gets sick - I remember so well!
We love you!
