Festival Of Trees

Last night I slept about the same as the night before. I slept when my son slept. When his medicine wore off and he started coughing again it woke me up too. Then I had a difficult time falling back to sleep. He was up quite a bit. His fever was not as bad as the previous night, but it still wasn’t great!! This morning my alarm went off at 9:00. Even though I already paid for my son’s entry fee to The Festival Of Trees and I already bought all of the tickets on the App for him to play all of the games and participate in all of the kids activities, he was finally sound asleep, so I didn’t want to wake him. I didn’t really think that he would be up to it anyway. My daughter had to be there by about 11:00, her rehearsal started at 11:15 and they started dancing on stage at 12:05. So we planned on leaving the house by 10:15 at the latest. My hubby stayed home with my son and my girls and I went. We dropped my daughter off by the rehearsal room, then my oldest daughter and I checked our coats. We looked at all of the gingerbread houses first. Then we walked through the gift shop. We looked at the Christmas trees. Then we watched my daughter dance. We pretty much left after she danced.

These were the best photos that I could get. We drove back to town. It was snowing a lot, both on the way there and home, but also it wasn’t really cold out, so it was pretty melty and wet, so I went through a lot of wiper fluid!! We had a couple hours at home. I had something to eat, which my tummy just plain didn’t like, I just felt sick for the rest of the day!! My oldest daughter and I did more cleaning up in the living room, we’re trying to clean and organize it in the living room so that we can start to decorate for Christmas. Then at about 4:30 my daughter and I had to drive back to the city for her production rehearsal from 5:15 – 6:30. I went to Winners while she was dancing and did a bit of Christmas shopping. Then I picked her up and drove home. We stopped at the Shoppers in town to pick up my prescription and a couple other things, before going home. My hubby hadn’t even started supper, even though it was almost 7:30 when we got home!! My daughter and I did more cleaning while he cooked. Then we had a late supper of chicken fajitas. I only had one small one, because I wasn’t too sure what my tummy would think of that. Then my hubby brought up the tree. We didn’t actually decorate or anything, we just put it in place. We are going to start tomorrow morning. Then I got my sick son into bed. I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to get ready for bed myself.

Night All! 💤😴

A Sick Kiddo

I slept for some of the night last night. My son was really sick last night. He had a fever of 104 at bedtime. He slept until the medicine wore off, then he woke up again and started coughing again and his fever went back up again. So, I woke up again. I gave him more medicine. It took him a while to fall back asleep. It also took me some time to fall back to sleep too! My son didn’t go to school this morning. His fever was still pretty high and he was still coughing a lot. I gave him more medicine and he stayed in bed. I didn’t really fall back to sleep this morning. I did lie in bed, but I didn’t sleep. Turns out that my hubby has to interview for this position on Monday. He thinks it’s more of a formality than anything, hopefully he’s right. He doesn’t really have all of the details. He’s pretty sure that the pay is a bit less than what he’s currently making, which isn’t great, but it’s better than making nothing! He also got an email about a different job interview Monday morning at 11:30. So he’s going to go to that one as well. My son and I got up at about noon. We went downstairs. I got my daughter up. We had some tea and something to eat. My son just laid on the couch in between us. When my hubby got out of bed my daughter and I went to my mom and dad’s house to dry her big comforter in their dryer. It’s a better dryer than ours, with more settings. We visited with them while we waited for it to dry. When it was finished we went home. We stopped and got gas on the way home and once we were in town we got a few groceries at the Sobeys. My son wasn’t much better when I got home. The medicine does work to bring his fever down, as long as I stay on top of it and give it to him on time. When I got home I made supper. We ate supper, then my daughter and I watched the sequel to a Christmas movie that we watched last night. Then I got my son into bed. Afterwards, I had a shower and then I got ready for bed myself.

Finally Some Good News…

I actually slept again last night. I fell asleep a little late, but when I finally did fall asleep, I stayed asleep until my alarm went off, which was nice! I got my son off to school. Then I slept until about 11:30 – 12:00. Then I got up and woke up my daughter. We had some tea. I had my plain toast. We watched another Christmas movie on Netflix. I talked to my mom on the phone. I also called Dr Hauptman’s office and had them fax a new Suboxone prescription to Shoppers, since Rexall can’t transfer that prescription to Shoppers. Then I got the kids from school. My son has had a bit of a cough and scratchy throat all week, but today when I picked him up he really wasn’t feeling well. His throat was really bothering him and he felt really hot. I drove my daughter to dance. When I came home I made supper. My son seemed to get worse as the day went on and he hardly ate any of his food. After supper he laid down on the couch really lethargic and out of it. My daughter and I cleaned and organized the living room. We watched a couple more Netflix movies while doing so. I got him to bed. Then we finished what we were doing. Now I’m going to get ready for bed myself. My tummy isn’t feeling that great still. My hubby called me from work with some good news. They are firing their data entry person at his work and they need a new person. They were asking if anyone knew of someone who could do that and his friend Don said my hubby’s name. So they asked him and he said yes. So, on Monday he starts data entry from 2:00 – 10:00 Monday – Friday. That’s a huge relief! That means that he will have a job! Which means that we can breathe again…so maybe if I wake up and my tummy suddenly feels better I’ll know that it was stress!! Anyway, I’m going to try to get some sleep.

A Semi-Normal Day!!

Last night I finally slept! It’s a miracle!! I think that my body finally gave into the exhaustion and just had to sleep. Yay!! I still don’t feel good. Nauseous, diarrhea and the damn migraine, but it helps not being completely exhausted. I even laid back down after I dropped off my son and slept for several hours. I know that I needed it. When I got up my hubby picked up the kids from school. Then I drove my daughter to dance. I drove back home. When I got home I made supper. Then my hubby ate quickly and left for work. The rest of us ate supper. Then my daughter and I watched a Christmas movie on Netflix called The Holiday Calendar. Afterwards we watched an episode of Charmed. Then I went and picked up my daughter and her friend from dance. When I got home my daughter had gotten my son into bed already. Then my daughter and I watched a couple more episodes of Charmed. Now I’m going to get ready for bed.

Sleep Deprivation Sucks!

Last night was not much better then the night before. I actually fell asleep when I went to bed, but I woke up about an hour and 15 minutes later. Then, as per my usual, I couldn’t fall back to sleep. The rest of the night I just laid in bed like I did the night before. I got no sleep again!! I literally have had 1 hour and 15 minutes of sleep in the last 48 hours. Which is just really really bad!! I know it’s super unhealthy and it certainly can’t be helping with the way that I’ve been feeling, my nausea and headaches definitely aren’t improving!! So frustrating! I did lie back down after dropping off my son, but I just wasn’t sleeping. I got out of bed at 10:30. I woke up my daughter. We had some tea and I had plain toast again. Because my tummy can’t handle much more than that!! We watched a couple episodes of Seal Team and made a grocery list and meal plan. Then I dropped her off at work and went to the grocery store. I went straight from the store to pick up the kids from school. Then we went home. I unloaded the groceries. My hubby put them away. My son had to come with me to the city to drive my daughter to dance, because my daughter worked until 8:00 and I stay in the city on Tuesdays and I’m not usually home until about 6:45-7:00 and my hubby leaves for work at around 6:15. We dropped off my daughter and then went to my mom and dad’s house. My dad hooked up his diagnostic thing to the van again, since the check engine light is still on. He said it looks like it needs a new thermostat. That’s a good thing, because it’s easily fixable and cheaply fixable. We played a game with my parents. Then we picked up my daughter and drove home. When we got home I made a quick supper for us. My daughter took hers with her and her friend picked her up and she went to her house to watch a movie. My son and I ate quickly, then picked up my daughter from work. When we got home, watched a show, then I got my son into bed. Once he was asleep I watched one show with my daughter and then I got ready for bed. Now I’m praying that I actually sleep tonight because I’m so damn exhausted!! My eyes are sore and hurt to keep open…I feel like I desperately need sleep now, it’s no longer something that I want. I would beg for sleep tonight, but who exactly do I beg for it? So damn frustrating…

Well, here goes nothing…yet again!

Zero Hours Of Sleep…Grrr!!!

Well, last night has to be the worst night yet… I literally didn’t fall asleep all night. I just laid in bed feeling sick and having a migraine, and going to the damn bathroom every hour and a half. I was so bloody frustrated!! My hubby said that I should have gotten up and done something, but I just really didn’t feel well. I kept thinking, I’ve got to fall asleep soon! But, nope! No such luck!! I tried to go back to bed after dropping off my son, but I just continued to lie there. So I got up at 11:30. I woke up my daughter and we had some tea. I had some plain toast. I was even more nauseous than usual and super dizzy. I was gagging and dry-heaving all day. I don’t know if it was the zero sleep, but it probably was. We watched a show while we ate. Then we did some cleaning (I was a bit slow-mo because I felt so shitty!!) until I had to go pick up the kids from school. I brought them home then I drove my daughter to dance. I stopped at the Shoppers in town on the way home. I finally got the 3 injections for my migraines that dr Hauptman prescribed 2.5 weeks ago. They did one into the back of each of my arms and one into my tummy, to show me how to do it so that I can do the rest myself. (Looking so forward to that!!) Then I came home. My hubby made rice to go with the leftovers for supper. He already ate and had to leave for work right after I got home. I warmed up everything for my daughter, son and I and we had supper. Then my daughter and I watched a couple shows, while my son was on his Switch. My hubby texted me from work. They moved up his last day of work. He now only has 3 weeks (counting the rest of this week) of work remaining. Great news…(note the rampant sarcasm!!) When our show was finished I did some laundry, then I got my son ready for bed. I went on my phone for a bit. However, I’m bloody sick and exhausted. I’m going to get ready for bed and I better damn-well sleep tonight!! And on that positive note…

Mom And Dad’s House

I didn’t sleep well again last night. That’s not really surprising though. It really doesn’t help that I have to go to the bathroom every hour and a half or so. It’s kind of difficult to get into a deep sleep when that’s happening! I didn’t get out of bed for a while this morning. I wasn’t really asleep, but because I felt so tired I just laid in bed half asleep. I finally got up. I got dressed. Then I did some laundry. I woke up my oldest daughter. I tried to have something to eat, but I couldn’t really eat much. I’ve lost more weight. We got some things together to go to my parent’s house. My younger daughter was at her friend’s house working on a school project, so she didn’t come with us. When we got to my mom and dad’s my hubby and dad took the van into the garage to hook up my dad’s diagnostic thing to it to figure out why the check engine light is on. My daughter peeled the squash for my mom. My hubby and dad came back inside, they think they fixed the problem, fairly quickly too!! Fingers crossed!! We played a few rounds of spoons, because my son loves that game. Then we Monopoly Deal card game. That game ended up being pretty short, my son got pretty lucky and won fairly quickly, even though he couldn’t even read his cards and got help for the majority of the game!! Then we started playing Phase 10. We played about 5 rounds until supper was ready and we had to set the table. We ate supper. After supper we had coffee and a few people had some ice cream. Then we just talked for a while, until we had to go home. When we got home I did some more laundry. My daughter gave my son a quick bath. Then I got him into bed. I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to get ready for bed and hopefully get some sleep.

A New Pharmacist

This morning I slept in for a while. I didn’t sleep lots last night, again, and this morning I stayed in bed and kind of tossed and turned for a while. My son slept in as well. He did wake up before me though. When I did get up I didn’t go downstairs right away. My son and I played a couple games together upstairs. I talked on my phone for a bit as well, to my daughter and my mom. I called the Shoppers to talk to the pharmacist and left a message for him to call me back. I went downstairs and had some tea and something to eat. I went on my phone for a while. Then I got dressed and my daughter and I drove to the city for a dance meeting. When we got out of the meeting, I saw that the pharmacist had called me back. So, when we got back into town I went to the Shoppers to talk to the pharmacist. I ended up transferring all of my and my family’s prescriptions to the Shoppers. He is going to do the injections tomorrow. He said that he knows Dr Hauptman well. We came home afterwards and my hubby had just started making supper. My daughter came home from work just after we came in. We had supper. After supper the girls and I finished organizing the socks. Then I went upstairs with my son. He laid on my bed with his Nintendo Switch and I had a long shower. I fell asleep putting him to bed!! I just woke up at 2:00 completely disoriented, wondering why my bathroom light was still on. Then I realized what happened and that I hadn’t written this yet! I can’t believe that I actually slept…strange! Hopefully I can go back to sleep!!

A Bit Of Broke Person’s Black Friday Shopping

This morning after dropping off my son at school I went to Sobeys and grabbed a few groceries. Then I came home and woke up my daughter. Then we had some tea and some breakfast. I talked to dr Hauptman’s office. His nurse/receptionist talked to him and he was furious that I haven’t received my injections yet. Apparently he has replied back to the pharmacy more than 3 times in the past 2.5 weeks regarding how to proceed with the injections. He really wants me to change pharmacists. He knows one of the pharmacists at the Shoppers in Beaumont and wants me to use him as my pharmacist. It wouldn’t be a quick transition, because once you have a prescription at a pharmacy you have to have all of the refills filled there. You can only have new prescriptions sent or bring them to a new pharmacy. However, he believes that even though Rexall already filled the prescription for this injection, the Shoppers pharmacist will be willing to give me the injections, because the pharmacist at Rexall isn’t trained to give deep, sub-cutaneous injections and the Shoppers guy is. I called him after my daughter and I got home from a bit of Black Friday Christmas shopping, but he wasn’t in, so I’m going to try again tomorrow. After I talked to Dr Hauptman’s office, my daughter and I drove to West Edmonton Mall and we did a little bit of Christmas shopping. Christmas is going to be extremely minimal for us this year. I wanted to go today because of the good sales. We did find some good deals. I didn’t have much to spend and wanted to be careful. When we got back to town I got a couple things for supper and then we went home. My girls organized an overflowing sock bin that has been taking up space in my son’s room or somewhere for far too long. I got supper cooking. We ate supper. The girls continued to do the socks after supper. We had Jeopardy playing while they organized socks and my son and I finished drawing our Cindy Lou Who pictures and then colouring them together. My son’s ear was really hurting him. I really hope that he isn’t getting an ear infection!! My stupid head hurt all day and my tummy and diarrhea still won’t stop. When we finished our pictures I was falling asleep sitting up on the couch. My son wanted to play something, but I just didn’t feel well. I really just wanted to get to bed. I couldn’t keep my bloody eyes open!! I only got about 4.5 hours of sleep last night and I was definitely feeling it. My son kept telling me that he was bored, but he slowly got quieter and quieter until he started to fall asleep with his head on my lap. Then I got up to carefully let out our dogs. (Our biggest dog is limping. My hubby said that he doesn’t know what happened, but when they were coming out of the bedroom she was ahead of him and he heard her skid at the top of the stairs then tumble down the stairs and cry and now she is limping.) She usually jumps up onto our back step to get back inside the house, but had a difficult time doing so tonight. She did eventually do it though. I got the bed ready and my hubby carried my son up to bed. Then I myself ready. I’m just exhausted right now. Let’s see if I sleep. I’ve been exhausted all week and it hasn’t seemed to make all that much of a difference sleep wise. I guess I’ll see!!

A Cold Night Last Night

Last night I actually got about 3 hours of sleep, instead of 2! Wow! I’m moving up in the world! Our furnace wasn’t working all night, so we were pretty cold all night. I put my heating pad on my son and I used a bunch of extra blankets. My hubby fiddled with it this morning and got it going. Then he went to bed. The problem was, as he called it, he “red-neck rigged it to work”, so it didn’t shut off until he got up at 2:00 and actually took the time to really fix it correctly. I tried to go back to bed after dropping off my son. As usual I only sort of slept. I attempted to call dr Hauptman, but I couldn’t get through, so I have to try more tomorrow. I picked up the kids from school. Then I drove my daughter to dance. I talked to my old friend from school while I was driving home (via Bluetooth in my van). When I got back to town I bought 2 things at Sobeys and I filled up my van with gas. Then I went home. My hubby had put a new filter in the furnace and was pretty sure that he had it working. He was testing it, by turning it up to 24 and making sure it would turn on and heat up and then turning it much lower and making sure it went down and then would go high again. He’s just worried that this will be a temporary fix and that something bigger could be wrong with it. Fingers crossed. I made my hubby and son supper and just had soup for myself, because my tummy and everything is still really bad. Then my hubby went to work. My daughter was at West Edmonton Mall with a friend, but she came home while my son and I were eating. I made her a couple grilled cheese sandwiches. Then we started watching a show together. I couldn’t finish it because I had to leave to go pick up my daughter and her friend from dance. When we got home my son was asleep on the couch. He had a bad headache and didn’t finish his supper and my daughter said that he fell asleep right after I left. I got him into bed. Then I finished watching the show with my oldest daughter and we watched another show. Now I’m going to get ready for bed and try to get some sleep. My fingers are crossed for a different outcome then I’ve had the rest of the week.
