Whew. 1pm of a holiday Monday of a long weekend and I’m am itching for some quiet time. All weekend my poor wife has been sick as a dog. Fever, hot, cold, tired, sore… all that crap. We all managed to make our Saturday plans seeing friends we met during our cruise, but yesterday for her was a complete write off. It hurts her to swallow… food, and liquids… but she only could manage to eat a muffin for breakfast and some won ton soup that I grabbed for her for dinner. She ate not even half the bowl of cream of mushroom soup and noodles for lunch. It’s sad.
And as much as I would like to be there for her, we still have 2 boys… 2 energetic boys who would tear our house apart if I wasn’t around to take them to the park, for a long walk or to the flower store. Yesterday, for example, was very cold and windy but we walked and walked to a park, to a store and to Tim Horton’s for coffee (me), bagels and yogurts for them. They seem happy, but we all miss Mummy. The three of us went to friends house last night for BBQ. Poor Mummy stayed home and slept.
Today she’s not better at all. No doctor’s clinics are open and we are not going to the emergency room for her suspected strep throat. So she is sleeping and I just brought the boys home from the park and trip to the flower store before I made us lunch. This afternoon after their quiet time the three of us are going to plant some herbs into our garden. Maybe our peas too as they are taking over inside.
We were supposed to have plans this afternoon with friends but doubt we’ll make it… Just a feeling.
Planted herbs and peas.
Played soccer in front of the house with neighbours we’ve never met and neighbours we like.
Went to the park… 2 parks actually.
Stopped for yogurt… Man the kids lucked out this weekend with Mummy sick… Strawberry Yogurt Sat night, Mint chocolate chip ice cream cones Sunday night and Monday night, yogurt.
I cooked up dinner, gave them a bath, then into bed.
This afternoon the doctor came and gave UM a check up – not sure it’s strep but suggested she have a throat swab tomorrow.
I ran but my heel was hurting so I only got 10 minutes, then I had to stretch it out, then 15 more and more stretching, following by a 5 minute sprint and icing the sore area. Don’t think any marathons are in the cards this year… Not looking good.
