I was just sick and holed up at home. I was barely (about 10 minutes a week) on the computer. We had all kind of interesting viruses going through our house. Amazingly enough...we all had something different. I had the flu plus a nasal infection. Christian (2yr old son) had the flu (horrible horrible stuff!) my daughter had the fakes (more to come on this later) and my husband had a cold.
So basically, we have a cocktail of yummy meds going on in our house. cocktail hour is at 6pm...it's okay if you come in your sweats!
Currently I am attempting to pack for vacation, get work done, manage my ever busy children and get the house cleaned. Mostly because when you come back from vacation, you want your house to be cleaned.
Here's to hoping I complete one of the tasks i listed above.
well truthfully, i have never understood that meaning. "sick as a dog"? What does that really mean? That dogs are sooo sick all the time and i am as sick as one? I see this is going to give me a headache, trying to make some type of sense of this expression.
Since being sick, my cute Hubby has been doing it all. Bless his heart and the women who ends up marrying him when i one day take my last breath. He was Betty Crocker, Mr. Dad and Mr.Mom all rolled into one. I wish i could flip the switch and make myself get better, so i could help out more. I am feeling a little bit better, i switched whatever i had before with a cold. Basically, my nose is stuffy, my throat is sore and I have a headache. I strongly believe the girl i was sitting next to in class on Friday based her germs on to me. She did inform the class that her and her boyfriend suffered a 3 day cold.
Jumping onto a new ship. Maybe you remember my confusion in past blog posts about if i should vaccinate our family for H1N1 or not. We were DEAD set against it two weeks ago. The something happened to me, and i realized for safety issues i at least need to have it, but without the mercury. Then i started thinking of my husband and our children, and realizing the environment that we are in and the germs everywhere. Maybe we will get the H1N1 and my kids will still catch it and somehow be sick, but for me...i think it is something that my family and I need to do.
I hate that there isn't enough time for me to really sit back and look through every single non-biased report to really get a good grip on this. I hate that i don't know what this will do to my kids in 2 or 3, or even 5 years from now. What mom wants to say, "yeah okay, you just made that in the lab and ran a couple of test? yeah sure, go ahead shoot that up in my kids". You want to say, "okay tell me what are the possible long term consequences that my child will have to face? Can we see all the studies, even the ones on babies (which as far as i understand now are extremely few) so we can make a better informed decision instead of feeling the pressure gates close on us to make a decision". I just wish there was time, but there isn't and so i have to hope and pray that what we have decided is best for our family. I pray i don't have to find out the hard way that i made the wrong choice.
- My husband is a better cook than I am.
- Legally I have not changed to my husband’s last name. I keep thinking I’ll do it…but I really like MY last name…I mean I had it for decades, I have a hard time with change. Maybe for the 10year I’ll officially change my last name to match my husband’s…maybe
-I am such a homebody. Although I always liked going out and doing things here and there and everywhere prior to marriage and kids…I really am just comfy being wherever my family is
- I need and enjoy my vacations ALONE. When I say alone..i mean, no hubby and no kids. I love them all very much…but I am seriously so much more refreshed and nicer to be around when I have reacquainted myself with me again.
- No matter how hard my husband tries I will never love any of the Rocky movies, or be able to sit through a John Wayne movie without looking like I am in pure pain.
- The longer I am married to my husband, the more I love him. When I think of how much I loved him when we first got married it felt like a ton then, but when I really look at it from then to now, I think it was just a small bit compared to how much I love him now
- Playing sick every once in a while is beneficial to you. Don’t overdo it though
- You can teach a dog new tricks. I have only had to deal with the toilet seat being left up 2 times in 5 years.
- My husband likes to be pampered just as much as i do.
- Money doesn't grow on trees...i was devastatingly shocked by this news
-Perfection is highly overrated and unnecessary.
**I wonder what 10 years of marriage will teach me, what has marriage taught you?***
Hello everyone, I would like you to meet my family...
Still feeling pretty sick...but i wanted to get this up and out, since Halloween is seriously around the corner. I went to a website called True Random Service to enter in all numbers. Well actually i just entered in 1 and 113 ( i know it shows 116 enteries...but 3 of those are me responding to people) . So..countdown from number one to number 12 and skip any entries from me. If you are the winner you can contact me by leaving a comment on this post and then i will contact you to get your costume of choice and mailing information. Otherwise you may have to wait until later in the week when i get around to it.
Thanks for playing everyone!
Numbers you should know by heart: Poison Control number.
You would think that after 3 years with 2 kids my husband and I would have poison control on speed dial, or know that number by heart anyway...but alas, we don't.
We are the family that has the ER on speed dial, because my son likes to run up our medical bills and frequent the nurses for some undivided attention.
anywho...back to my story. So when my daughter was what I thought safely tucked into bed sound asleep...she apparently wasn't.
After hear what i thought was her bedroom door closing, My Dh called her downstairs so she could come out of her room from her nap. She was dillydallying and about 15 minutes later brought her self on downstairs, grabbing her tummy. I noticed that she has toothpaste all over her...like she trying to take a bath in it! More like she was trying to rub it in like lotion actually. She had it on her arms, legs, face, and hands.
Then my daughter grabs her tummy harder and says,
My children...whom i love, don't mistake that, always seem to pull the best "stunts" when i am sick. I have currently been on a sick bed for 2 weeks. Sick as a dog! They colored on the carpet...for kicks amongst other things.
So any who, after talking to the Poison control person on the phone, he tells my DH to give her some milk and just monitor. He says she should be fine and if she vomits then we need to bring her in to the ER. So far she has kept everything down.
My daughter I believe has a love for ingesting things that can be poison. She has consumed perfume, lotion, and shampoo in large doses in her 3 years of life.
What this all really means: is that tomorrow i will be busy once again reorganizing things out of her room or out of her bathroom and into mine so she can keep her busy body self out of things she shouldn't be in. Have your kids ever consumed something that was poisonous or considered poisonous because they took it in large doses?
