Howdi folks! Long time no communicate!
Wonderboy is still off school with a viral infection, Primadonna has had to go in school under protest this morning. The kid’s are breaking up really late this year, this is the last day of school for a lot of children in the area, but with only 4 days (including today) to go before Christmas Day, it’s driving a lot of kids nuts to be doing academic work in this season of joy…my daughter even has a french test set for today!
I’m grumpy. I’ve been stuck in the house for almost 2 weeks without reprieve, I know Wonderboy can’t help being poorly, but my fridge is bare as I haven’t had time to go shopping for food or even for christmas presents and there’s so very much to do, but still, I’ve either been doubled up with pain myself or caring for Wonderboy and taking him to numerous doctors appointments etc. We’ve scratched something to eat each day until now when there is literally nothing left LOL! And I’m such a rotten mum that I don’t even have anything in for our tea tonight 😦 I shall have got and pop out to the shop around the corner (hmmm, the shop around the corner is off one of my fave films if I recall, ‘You Got Mail’ – which is totally unrealistic if you ask me but there you go). I hate being this disorganised this close to Christmas but what else can I do?
Somehow I have to try to go to work tomorrow and over the weekend I have to do my grocery shopping and buy some extra things to make the Christmas Day Desserts and buy veggies and Yorkshire puddings to contribute to our Christmas Day meal that mum is cooking….I also have to go shopping for Christmas presents I have reserved countelss times at ARGOS and have not been able to collect over the last week or so, I also have to squeeze in a visit to family members, take Christmas flowers to the cemetry the other side of the City…and do a whole heap of other stuff I just don’t want to think about right now 🙂
Oh and as for the offending tooth I was making such a fuss about??? It got pulled late Monday afternoon. Which I was glad about apart from the fact that the whole thing was a nightmare. The dentist had no compassion whatsoever and just yanked it out and sent me out the door, I don’t know why people can’t just be friendly. He knew I was anxious as I needed my inhaler and had to stop him yanking at one point. I got to the car and started gagging….he had anaesthetised my gum in two places to pull the tooth out (thanks be to God that he did…but oh my!) and my absess burst and I had to swallow all the crap out of it but the numbness was on the roof of my mouth at the back so I was gasping for air because I find it very hard to breathe through my nostrils (rhinitis I think it’s called). So I went to collect my son and started choking in the car, when I got to mum’s I headed straight for the bathroom and was quite ill. My antibiotics have finished today and the pain isn’t keeping me awake at night anymore so I do thank God for bringing me through this because it could have been very much worse indeed.
Thanks for all your prayer and supportive comments. I’m sorry about the infrequency of writing and of visiting your blogs, I am trying to read you all through bloglines at the moment though as I just have to snatch a few minutes here and there.
Have a Blessed Christmas!
