Back to square one

I just finished my course of medications for my cough, sore throat and cold. When I was taking it, I was ok. Had good sleep. Nose was clear, cough was manageable, sore throat gone, had good sleep. I run out of medication today. This morning I woke up and the sore throat is back. Chey!

I changed my bedsheets on Friday. It took 3 rounds of washing over the weekend to clean them all. Last night the girl woke up at 1.30am and coughed non-stop….till she vomitted all over my clean duvet cover. Of course the comforter underneath got all wet and smelly too. Her daddy tried to carry her to the bathroom and that left a trail of vomit on her pyjamas, the floor and the kids playrug at the foot of the bed. The girl cried and rub her vomit all over her face leaving more mess. I was too tired to clean up last night so I did the best that I could and left the pile of sheets at the foot of my bed smelling the sweet smell of vomit throughout the night.

So now its back to a few rounds of washing again. Chey! Plus I have to clean out the floor and the rug. Chey! Looks like I won’t be doing any blog hopping today. Chey!

I’m beggining to sound like a tired old housewife. Yikes! All of my recent posts have been ranting, nagging, complaining posts. And I vowed at one time, never to rant on my blog. I only wanted to fill it with positive, happy things. A fine job I am doing with that! Hahaha. However, I must say that at least I remembered to hug my girl instead of scold her for making such a mess and that is a good thing. 🙂

  1. Given it is raelly hard to remain happy and cheerful and postiive while cleaning up a pile of vomit!

    What more you are ill!

    But if for no other reason, a mummy is the pillar that holds up the whole family! And for that, give yourself a huge pat on the back and take a deep breath…

    And then chant…”You can do it! You can do it” YOu can do it…smilling!” Take care.

    I can do it! I can do it! I can do it! Yes! Hahaha. Thanks.

  2. Yeap, it is tough to take care of kids even when you are sick and they are sick. Take care and hope all of you have a speedy recovery.

    What I will do is send all the laundry to a third party to wash. Rest more, recover faster.

    This bug is extremely long lasting, its annoying.

  3. It’s o.k to rant once or twice…just be positive, time will pass. I whine too but try not to post too many of them on my blogs, coz I don’t want to remember them…hoho…

    When Ur maid comes, you will have someone to share the housework, so that you can concentrate on your kids.

    Hope your girl recover soon, poor thing.

    She’s mostly recovered. The vomiting was due to the bad coughing that is all.

  4. Hope both you and your girl will recover soon. I guess life is like that, for all the downs you are experiencing now, rest assured that the ups are just around the corner. Hang in there, ok? 🙂

    Hanging on real tight. 🙂

  5. oh dear.. just as you were getting better ya… sigh.. really hope this won’t last long.. take care and rest whenever you can..

    I’m better now, thanks, its just the lingering sore throat that keeps on coming back!
