Dear Mr. Cold Virus,
We have been together a little over a week now, and there seems to be no signs of you leaving. I still have a runny nose, fatigue, and some achiness. I truly feel like I am going to have this cold forever. And I am sure you enjoyed the visit from AF this past week, too. You two seemed to get along well, and enjoyed making me feel miserable for the past week.
I know you were excited to be with me when I got you within a few days of getting over GI Bug. The GI bug was slightly more romantic, as we were together over Valentine's day. In fact, it took me a week to fully get over him. I felt normal for a few days, and then you show up.
I really tried to take it easy with you. I moved slow all week, and tried to be as lazy as I could. I even took off a day of work and sent baby to daycare so that we could be together. Just the two of us. This came on the heels of me taking off two days of work for GI Bug.
I will admit that it is difficult as you spread your attention everywhere. The baby is spending time with you as well. I suspect that is part of the reason you are sticking around so long. We need to get up once or twice a night to tend to the baby, so I am rather sleep deprived at the moment. And now you want to spend time with Hubby, too.
And I am fine with that. But in order for you to spend quality time with Hubby, I need you to move on from me and the baby. You see, man colds need a lot of TLC. I think you will like that, and you will like it much better if I am more in a mood to give you the attention you deserve.
So consider this your eviction notice from me. I do not have time for you any more. I gave you a little over one week, and your time is now up. It is time to move on to greener pastures.
