A Pounding In My Head…

This morning I pretty much had the same kind of morning that I had yesterday. I was half awake/half asleep, lying in bed with a massive sinus headache! Ug!! I took some cold medicine and stayed in bed for a while. When I finally got up, I had some earl grey tea and some oatmeal. Then I made a grocery list, our cupboards were beginning to look like Old Mother Hubbard’s, they were really quite bad! I’ve been hearing from the kids for days, “we have nothing to eat!” So, I made a list and, despite my pounding headache, I went to No Frills, then Sobeys, then I got gas in my van and finally I finished off by picking up my and my daughter’s prescriptions at Shoppers. Then I finally went home. Once I got home, I put all of the groceries away, then I made homemade chicken soup. My hubby boiled the carcasses yesterday and took the bones out this morning. So, I just had to add the veggies, rice, spices, etc. and voila! Chicken soup with rice!! Perfect for all the sickos in my house!! It took some time though, so we ate a bit late tonight… So pretty much after supper I had to get my son off to bed. Now I’m going to get ready for bed as well. My head just won’t stop pounding…

Volunteer Duty Evening!!

This morning I slept in, sort of. I didn’t sleep well last night and I was sort of half awake half asleep for most of the morning. I stayed in bed for a while. My son went downstairs around 10:00 to play video games with my hubby. I laid in bed feeling sick for a long time. Then I got up and had a long shower. Afterwards, I dried my hair and got dressed. Then I went downstairs and had something to eat. I talked with my kids for a while and went on my phone. Then I had to go to Colonial school to do my soccer volunteer duty. We signed up late for or volunteer duty, so we ended up with the final tournament that our son isn’t even in!! It’s for the older kids! I had to be there from 5:30-9:30, sitting in front of a big inflatable thing that had four huge holes in it that kids tried to kick soccer balls into. I had to make sure that they didn’t jump on it and that they were careful, no one got hurt and took turns, etc. Fun times I tell you! At least it finally stopped raining! That would not have been fun in the rain, no sir!! At 9:30 I was freezing cold, it started getting cold at around 9:00 and by 9:30 I was super cold!! I went to Timmy’s on my way home and got an earl grey tea (2 milks, 1 honey!!) and then went home. My oldest daughter was already in bed, because she works early tomorrow morning. My hubby went to bed when I got home. I made myself something quick to eat. Then I got my son into bed and now I’m going to to get to bed as well. I have a massive sinus headache and have had it all day, it just won’t go away!! Argh…

Another Day – Another Sick Me…

This morning I still felt crappy. After I dropped off my son at school, I went to Sobeys and bought some groceries that we really needed. Then I came home and put everything away and had breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen. I did some laundry, you’d think that I would be caught up by now, but I don’t know if you ever catch up with a family of 5…It’s a never ending cycle!! Then I went upstairs to get some rest. I took some of the cold medicine that I bought at the store and then I tried to sleep, but of course I couldn’t…So, I just rested for a couple of hours. My hubby came home from work and went and picked up my son from school. I got up and made supper. After eating my daughter and I watched a couple of episodes of Bones again. Then I played a game with my son. Afterwards, I got him ready for bed. Even though it’s a Friday night, and he usually stays up a bit later, I got him into bed fairly early, because I wasn’t feeling well and I wanted to get to bed early myself. Which is what I’m going to do now!!

Still Feeling Sick

Today was practically a repeat of yesterday…it rained all day. I woke up feeling crappy. I got my son off to school and came home and did all of my usual things. Had to get the blue bag out today. Had my son’s laundry to sort through. Didn’t lie back down until early afternoon. Was feeling pretty yucky. My hubby picked up my son from school today, it was too rainy for him to walk home. After supper my daughter and I watched some old episodes of Bones, one of our oldest favourite shows. It’s one that I’d definitely love to own. One day…Then I got my son into bed. Now I’m going to get ready for bed also.

A Sick Day

Still feeling sick when I got up this morning. I got my son off to school, in the rain. Then I came home and did my regular stuff and some of my son’s laundry. Then I came upstairs to get some rest, since I wasn’t feeling well. I couldn’t really sleep, but laid in bed, for only about an hour. Then my daughter texted me when her math final was finished and I went to the school to pick her up. We came home and made her a hair appointment for next week. Then I drove her to her friend’s house. Then I came home and went back to bed. This cold is really kicking my butt! I couldn’t really sleep, but I rested. It rained all day. My hubby picked up my son from school. My oldest daughter came home from work and made supper today. After supper I helped my younger daughter with her laundry. Then my daughter and I watched a couple of episodes of our show. Then I got my son into bed. Now I’m going to go to bed too. I’m feeling pretty crappy.

My Turn To Get Sick…

I slept horribly again last night!! I hardly got any sleep at all! I got up feeling like crap, tired and sick. I’ve caught the beginning stages of the nasty cold that both my hubby and my younger daughter have been fighting for the past week! It’s in my sinuses, my throat and my nose…yuck. And, having zero sleep certainly can’t help! I got my son off to school and then I came home and did all of my regular morning stuff. I washed another load of towels, there were a bunch all over the kids bathroom floor that I assumed needed to be washed. Then I came upstairs took something for my burgeoning cold and laid down in bed at about 12:00! I was feeling pretty crappy and exhausted, but of course I couldn’t actually sleep, but I just laid there. I’m sure that my body could use the rest though. So, that’s what I did. I just relaxed. I set an alarm for when I had to pick up my son, just in case I actually did eventually fall asleep, but I didn’t. However, my hubby came home and went and picked him up from school, since I really wasn’t feeling well. I stayed in bed until supper, although I didn’t really sleep. Just didn’t feel well…My hubby made breakfast for supper. Afterwards the girls and I cleaned up. Then I checked the laundry. My daughter and I watched our show for a while. Then I got my son into bed. I’m still not feeling great and I’m sooo tired! I’m going to get ready for bed now.

2nd Last Soccer Game!

This morning I was feeling really tired when I got up. I didn’t sleep well last night at all. I was awake for half the night at least. I got my son ready and off to school. Over the next couple of weeks his class will be walking to the splash park in town on the hot days, so I had to make sure that he had sunblock, bug spray and swim trunks in his backpack with him. Once I dropped him off I came back home and had something to eat, cleaned up the kitchen and did some laundry. I was feeling pretty tired still. My daughter had her written portion of her english final this morning. She was pretty tired after the concert last night. Her exam started at 9:00 this morning. She said that she was going to text me when she was finished, but she ended up walking home at about noon. I decided to have a nap right around that time. I was just lying down when she came home, at about 12:15. Despite how tired I felt, I didn’t actually fall asleep until about 2:00. My son was walking home from school today, so I ended up sleeping until about 4:30. Then I got up and we had an early supper. My hubby BBQ’d. Then my oldest daughter, my hubby and I went and watched my son’s soccer game in the city. They won again. It was by a lot again, something like 7-1, with the mercy rule it’s only considered 5-1. We came home and I watered the sunflowers out front. Then my son had a quick shower. I helped my daughter organize some of her things in the basement. Then we watched one episode of our show. I got my son into bed. Now I’m going to get myself ready for bed as well.

Happy Father’s Day!

This morning I slept in. My son got up before me and went on his phone for a while. Then we got up and went downstairs. The kids gave my hubby Father’s Day cards and his present. Then I went to Sobeys with my younger daughter. We came home and had something to eat. Then I drove my younger daughter to her friend’s house, we stopped at the Dollarama on the way there to buy her friend a card. A few of them were going to the Shawn Mendes concert tonight. They were all meeting at the one girls house first and going from there. After dropping her off, I came back home and my son and I went outside and found 4 big pots and went through the old soil that was in it, to make sure that it didn’t have any old roots or anything in it. Once we went through it and “cleaned” it out we added new soil to the top of each pot. Then we planted a sunflower plant into each pot. These are from the flowers from my daughter’s bed program from her school. They have not all been claimed yet, all of the people haven’t gotten back to my daughter and the sunflowers had to be planted. They were not looking very healthy in there little pots! My oldest daughter was also going to the same concert with her friend, she left for her friend’s house while my son and I were outside! We came inside at about 6:00. My hubby BBQ’d smokies and hot dogs and we had air-fried potatoes with them. Then we watched the second LEGO movie on the box. Afterwards, I got my son into bed. Now I’m going to get myself ready for bed!!

PS. Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful dad! He’s an amazing father who’s always been there whenever I’ve needed him for anything, now and always and I love him so!! Thanks for everything dad💕♥️❤️

Ballet Exam Day!!

This morning, after not sleeping very well last night, my alarm went off at 7:00. I got up and had a shower. Then I dried my hair, got dressed and ready to go. My daughter had to be at the studio by 9:30 this morning. The studio’s ballet exams were all day today and my daughter was helping with the music for the little kids this morning. She also was helping get some of them prepared for their exam while the teacher was busy with the current exam! She had to be at the studio helping from 9:30 – 1:00. So, I dropped her off and then went to my mom and dad’s for that time. It was way too long to just sit in my van outside the studio!! My mom helped me cut out an inside bra-type lining out of an old bathing suit that no longer fits me and sewed it into a new bathing suit that I ordered online that doesn’t have one! We visited and also had lunch before I had to go pick up my daughter. I got her from the studio and we drove back to Beaumont. We went to Shoppers to buy hairpins for her bun for her exam later. They didn’t have a hairnet, so we went to Rexall and bought her one there, along with some dry shampoo and a card for her ballet teacher. We then went home. We had a few hours at home, we didn’t have to leave again until around 5:00 for her ballet exam! I quizzed her on the theory for her exam, she had me go over it a few times! Then I re-sewed the elastic straps on her ballet slippers where they were over-stretched and no longer looked very nice, because she can lose marks if her shoes don’t look neat and nice. She ate something small and then we drove back to the studio. I dropped her off and then drove to Timmy’s and bought my earl grey tea and muffin. I went back to the studio and waited for her there. They ended up being ahead of schedule, so her group went in early, so she came out about 40 minutes earlier than I expected! She did really well on her exam and received a “commended”, which is a score of 80-84%. When she was finished we drove home. When we were walking in the door, my hubby, son and oldest daughter were about to leave and go for a walk to check out the small midway in town, since it’s Beaumont Day this weekend. My daughter and I missed the parade this morning, because of the ballet exams. She and I warmed up the burgers that my hubby made for supper. Then I filled up the water bottles and let out the dogs. It was only about 9:00, but I was feeling tired. I was letting the dogs in when the rest of the family came back home. My son was feeling tired too. So, I got him ready for bed and now I’m going to get myself into bed, nice and early, because I’m sooo tired!

Sickos!!

This morning my hubby didn’t go to work again, because he’s still not feeling well. I got my son ready for school and dropped him off. I came home and tried to pay for his year end picnic order (his school has a picnic at the end of the year every year and the orders had to be paid for by today, I’ve been trying to pay for the past couple of days, but it keeps telling me that PayPal isn’t working!) so I called the school and they told me that I had to bring in cash or a cheque. I went back out and to the bank. I got out enough cash and then bought tea, so I had the correct amount of money. Before going to the school, I went to Rexall and bought cold medicine for my younger daughter, who seems to have caught the same cold as my hubby. Then I went to the school and paid for my son’s picnic order. I went back home and my oldest daughter was awake. I had my breakfast, then my daughter and I went to Walmart. We bought my hubby something very small for Father’s Day and I also bought a couple of groceries. Then we came back home. I picked up my daughter after her math test. Then I made grilled cheese sandwiches. It started hailing out so crazily that it looked like snow! It was wild, but short-lived, like hail storms generally are! I went to pick up my son, but he walked home!! When I got home he was already here!! After watching him and my daughter play a new video game briefly, I started supper. Apparently I didn’t start it soon enough, because my son and hubby had to leave for his soccer practice before supper was ready. We ate while they were gone and they ate when they got home. My daughter and I watched a few episodes of our show. My younger daughter suddenly called me at 9:00, remembering that we didn’t wash her tights, body suit or shoes for her ballet exam tomorrow!! So, I stopped what I was doing and put the body suit in the washer and did the rest by hand!! Then I hung it all up to dry!! Then I got my son into bed. Now I’m going to bed too!
