Happy Birthday to me....


Thursday, April 12, 2012

Today was NOT a good day!

First off my daughter has had a horrible cough for about a week and a half so I took her to the doctors and found out that she has bronchitis that maybe mild influenza! Are you kidding me? This is the 3rd or 4th time this winter season that she's had this! He gave her a different medicine to see if that would help kick it for good...Man I hope so!

Secondly...My oldest came home early from school this morning with HEAD LICE! This is my absolute WORST nightmare! My mom had a nervous breakdown the one time we had it so I have been dreading and fearing this! I would much rather have her puking all over the house then this! I know its not her fault...that's not what I am saying. I just don't like the idea of it or all the cleaning afterwards. So I ran to the store and loaded up a treatment supplies. brought a new brush so I could just throw out the old one and new pillows so I can throw out the old ones as well. Came home and found that my other daughter (the one with bronchitis has it as well!) I freaked! I am sure that I look ridiculous but I just don't handle these situations well...My mom is freaking out already and its not even in her house! So needless to say she will NOT be helping me out.

Back to the topic of this blog...My birthday is tomorrow so what a wonderful day this will be. I wasn't planning on doing anything special really for my birthday. Just the usual friday pizza night at home watching a family movie sounded great to me. Well tomorrow and this weekends plans have been changed. I will be cleaning the house and all bedding etc from top to bottom. Happy Birthday to me!

    Do hope your dd gets better soon. Oh on the lice, I remember those days. Do hope you are able to nip it in the bud. My dd had it a couple of times, we finally put her hair in a braid for school and that seemed to help at least for her. emoticon

Do hope things calm down and you have a Happy Birthday! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Look up and read about tea tree oil, my daughter used it when her girl got head lice from staying with a cousin. She didn't want to use the Rid stuff as it is a pesticide.

Wash every thing in hot water. The hot water and the dryer will kill them.

here is a link on the oil

    Oh Charity....this is NOT the birthday I had just wished for you on your facebook page sweetie. Phooey! And I suppose that Brian is busy with farm "stuff" too. I am so sorry. Once you are finished with the washing of everything and the scrubbing of everything and the hair and your little one is on meds to make her feel better, please, please, be thinking of something during all of this that is going to be your celebration with something extra on top as a reward for all of this unplanned and totally frustrating and maddening and upsetting not scheduled life stuff k? Happy birthday dear Charity. And if this doesn't work out, then I suggest you reschedule your birthday and you DO do something special. A dinner date just you and Brian with your Mom sitting for the girls maybe. Something to look forward to! AND, Mother's Day is right around the corner and you, dear friend are the Mother of the Year!

    So sorry that you have this to deal with....I used to have it regularly when my kids were at primary school......I think I actually got to the stage where I was so used to them having it that it didn't phase me any longer....

Trust that you can have a nice relaxing special day for you birthday....
Enjoy it whatever you do....
Blessings

    I am sorry your birthday plans have changed.....I hope your daughter gets better soon. How awful that she has been ill so much.

Years ago, when our children were little (our youngest was still a baby - maybe 4-6 months old....she's now 29), we were living in another state than our families, and I had taken the girls and flown "home" while my DH worked out of town. As we walked into my in-laws home, the 2 older girls ran into the bathroom to see what all the commotion was. My sister-in-law was there with her 3 children, treating them for lice (not quite sure why she went to her father's house to do this instead of her own home.....LOL). I herded the girls back into the car and headed to my parents' home, where we stayed for the rest of the visit.
