Day Off

The teachers here have been on strike - well rotating ones - since before Christmas ... it would be nice if the damn government would wake up ...... but that's another whole topic.

The lil one is off today and tomorrow.  I did have plans for these days off - like a trip to the library ... it's impossible to keep up with her reading..... eg she got 2 beautiful books from eldest daughter for Christmas and she finished them in 2 days ... le sigh.

However the lil one came home from school yesterday complaining she was REALLY tired.  She curled up on her bed and fell asleep.  When she got up she had fever spots on her cheeks -- temperature 101.  (le sigh) The only good thing about her getting sick is that we have an appointment to see her doctor today to check her sugar / weight levels.  (We're very proud of her -- she was 25+pounds overweight a year ago... we have all been working on healthy food choices and she has been doing a lot more exercise.  It has all paid off... she has lost almost all that weight -- she looks so much healthier........ and hopefully the threat of diabetes has all but disappeared!)

I stressed all night..... I used to stress when my girls would get sick (which was a lot!!) - nice to know some things don't change (NOT) ..... Sir Steve gave her some tylenol and she slept all night - woke up this morning with a helluva cough but no fever! 

Needless to say our plans had to change.  'Santa' gave her an embroidery kit ... and it hasn't been opened.  When we get back from the doctor's I'll see if she's up to learning some embroidery stitches.

Now I think there was a more direct point to today's post  but for for the love of me I can't remember where I was going with this................ 

ahhh well ....

Life is good when fevers break  and we have a doctor's appointment........


  1. i hope the appointment goes well!

  2. Morningstar,

    These rotating strikes are fun aren't they? Stupid government.

    Sorry to hear that lil one is sick, but happy that she can be checked to make sure it isn't anything more than a winter flu.


  3. Teacher strikes suck for parents, so stressful.

    I think it's wonderful that you made plans for the days off school. Sorry to hear the lil one got sick. At least the up side is she won't miss school? For a couple of days anyway.

    Glad you managed to get a doctor's appointment. He weight loss is awesome. Hope there is positive news from the doctor on the diabetes front, which by the sound of it there should be, and that she recovers quickly.
