Today, as I opened my eyes and pondered starting my day, I was very tempted to just pretend that all my responsibilities had disappeared and I could just go back to sleep. Those who know me and my workaholic tendencies know that that would actually be a punishment, but I digress. The reason why I was struggling to get out of bed was that I reckon my body is fighting off some variation of a cold, cough or flu.
So I got to thinking…what if I could stay in bed and someone else other than my husband could get the kids ready for school, make breakfast and do my chores for the day? Because I had recently engaged in an interesting conversation about polygamy over the Thanksgiving holiday, the thought of it came to my mind. I thought, what if there was another woman in the house who could do everything that I did and I could, just this once, have the luxury of staying in bed and resting for a while longer?
