Sick Day Schedule

My daughter was home sick today. This is exactly what she did all day.

Sick Day Schedule:

6:20 am - Alarm rings. Juliana says, "I feel sick." Father "harasses" her to get up for school. Mother takes Juliana's temperature. It's normal, but Mom still overrules Father. Juliana gets to stay home. But the agreement is she MUST go to school tomorrow.

6:24 am - Juliana goes back to sleep.

8:00 am - Wakes up, moves pillow and blanket to living room couch.

8:10 am - Begins reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Finishes Chapter 1.

9:00 am - Makes toast.

9:05 am - Watches first 10 minutes of Once Upon A Time on TV. Becomes bored.

9:15 am - Switches to watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on TV.

11:30 am - Father makes her french onion soup for lunch. Juliana asks him to strain it so it's basically onion broth with no "bits."

11:40 am - Watches more TV. This time Top Gear, an upscale car show on BBC America.

2:00 pm - Mom arrives home from work. Juliana and Mom talk.

2:30 pm - Reads Deathly Hallows.

3:00 pm - Friends are home from school. Texts friends.

3:30 pm - Reads more Deathly Hallows.

5:00 pm - Eats dinner and watches The Closer on TV.

6:00 pm - Mom takes Juliana's temperature. It's almost 101 degrees.

Oh no! Juliana will need to stay home again tomorrow (despite this morning's agreement) and follow this Sick Day Schedule all over again!


  1. I was sick yesterday too, but I couldn't even get out of bed or eat or drink a thing, so my sick day schedule was not quite as interesting! At least today I have enough energy to turn on my laptop...Hope she is better soon!

  2. Sounds like you've been very sick! I hope you feel better soon!
