Started out as a mild cold and is now on the way to bronchitis. I don’t feel terrible – most of the time. As my buddy Jane would say, "meh."
Isabella is doing very well in school! She walks right up to the special door that leads directly to her class all excited to start her day. Isn’t that great?
One odd thing, though, is that she has been eating like three people. She’ll finish her lunch and start on another kid’s lunch. Thankfully, they always have extra. Maybe it is just a growth spurt.
Thanks again to Deb and Nikki for the encouragement.
I’ll start the falderal and see if I need to add anything later:
When you are sick, do you want to be left alone or doted on? Both. I love when someone loves me enough to want to take care of me. I also don’t want to be bothered. Also depends on how sick I am. The worse I am the less patience I have.
Do you have a favorite to food to eat when you are under the weather? Used to be pasta, pasta and more pasta. Now, I can’t think of a thing. Not even chocolate!
Do you know what a "mustard plaster" is and, if so, have you ever had one? Once that I can remember. It was before I was eleven and I must have been pretty sick because my mom set me up in hers and dad’s bed – right in the middle, put the concoction on my chest and let me watch the little black and white tv they had in their room. I believe I watched "The Monkees." I must have been really sick to be set up like that!
When were you most scared by a sickness? When the girl was in kindergarten, she had vomiting and diarrhea for days. She was so dehydrated she needed to be hospitalized. Poor kid had salmonella and we were in that hospital for four days. That’s a whole blog entry in and of itself. She lost one fifth of her body weight and spent her sixth birthday in the hospital. Thanks again, Mom and Dad, for taking us to the hospital and for all you did for us.
What did you have for dinner last night? Pierogies with fried onions. Wasn’t up to making much else and I didn’t want Himself to spend the money on take out.
I’m tired. I’m going to rest now. Hope all is well with you, gail
