Long time no write…

Hello there, is anybody still reading this blog (seeing I never blog)?

Anyway… hm, I’d like to blog more about my little wild almost two year old (baby) boy, but then on the other hand I don’t want to share too much information about him online. I probably could just blog and not share pictures though. Not sure.

So, life is good but I’m sick way too often. It started in the beginning of December when I had a pulled muscle, then a laryngitis, then a cold, and now a cold. I called sick into work so often the last 2,5 months I feel bad.
This time, about a week ago, Q had lots of yellow stuff in his eyes. I had to put in eye drops five times a day and clean his eyes a lot. It wasn’t a conjunctivitis, luckily, but still it was catching, as I got it three days later. The same thing – everything behind the nose is clogged, the tear fluid which is being produced cannot run through the nose so it just comes out of the eyes – yummy! I haven’t had something like that in 35 years but now, with a child, it’s never too late for the first time.

Q and I stayed home one week now, his eyes are pretty good now and I think I’ll put him into child-care tomorrow, so that he can play a bit with his friends. And mommy (me) will RELAX!

I always wondered how mothers do it – to be sick with a child. My answer is: Advil! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not a fan of taking medicine but when I’m sick I pretty much take them all the time. Don’t blame me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Q’s play corner in the living/dining room is finished now, here’s a photo
Q's play-corner in the living/dining room
I moved it around differently but that’s all I wanted for him – a little table with chairs, a book shelf, a bench (which is also a shelf – whoa) where he can sit and read ๐Ÿ™‚

How have you been?

Hello Virus

And hello Website! Haven’t seen you in a long time!

It’s somehow funny, last year, December 19th, we were all sick with the stomach flu. This year, December 16th Q started vomiting, luckily only four times that evening until he finally fell asleep.
The boyfriend didn’t feel too good that night and I didn’t feel too good Saturday, but I went out and did my things and felt better after breakfast and two big cups of coffee.
Sunday however I got a headache, took some medicine and in the evening I didn’t feel good at all and thought ok, that’s it, hello stomach flu. The boyfriend didn’t get it, he only felt bad that one night.
But, instead of getting the stomach flu, I got a laryngitis! It somehow felt different from the regular I have a cold sore throat so I was a bit worried and went to the doctor on Tuesday. The disadvantage of a laryngitis, other than that it sucks, is that it can take up to ten days and seeing it’s a virus you can’t do anything against it, other than to drink lots of tea!
Oh, today is day three, on day six we have a big family dinner, on day seven as well, on day eight we drive to the boyfriend’s family and on day nine we have a big family dinner there.

Oh, I wish the virus wouldn’t always wait so long until it says “Hello, here I am” ๐Ÿ™
