Still sick.

Oh wow. It has been a long week. I know it's only Tuesday, but I mean the last seven days. Ten days, actually. That's how long Jamie has been sick. He has only thrown up twice, but the other issues continue, and I have been struggling for what to feed him. (Thanks for your suggestions, Candy, on my previous post!) More than once we have had nothing but a pot of rice for supper. He still wakes up in a bad state, but during the day he seems to do all right. I think we're in for some rice again tonight. Mmmmm. Hehe, good thing I do like rice. All of us do, but it is still kind of pathetic.

Today was rough because Jamie is terribly grumpy and I had homework to finish (due today) and I got a migraine. I seem to get migraines a lot when I am doing my homework, though I'm not sure whether there is any connection or not. Migraines for me involve not being able to see properly. I seem to be okay now, and for that I am thankful.

Then there were the usual type of incidents, like Jamie pouring the liquid honey out inside of Radar's crate. Thank goodness his crate is located outside. Oreo's cage still reeks like parmesan cheese. Ew. Jamie also broke my cell phone charger, and something else that escapes my memory at the moment. I remember nearly screaming in frustration at the time. Oh right. I went downstairs to get some chicken out of the freezer and I had to get past a very large John Deere ride-on tractor/loader to get there. I turned around and looked back at it, because Cody said something about my "Belgians". Huh? I looked, and the bucket of the tractor was full of a tangled mess of Budweiser Clydesdales, all harnessed together. These were from a model that I painstakingly painted and put together when I was about 13. Now it is a pile of rubble in the basement. I suppose this is how things go around here, but all the same, I was very frustrated. Where did he even get them??

Oh well. That's okay. It is kind of a down day today, but hopefully tomorrow will be better. I will have to cancel my play date for the second week in a row due to Jamie's illness. I have lots more to report, but I just don't have the energy right now. I will attempt a better post tomorrow.

I am glad that the rice is working for you. Sometimes a big bowl of rice, butter, and soy sauce it all I want for dinner, so yummy!

I am sure that it is exhausting for you to keep up with with your cute little sick one. I will be thinking of you and praying that you get extra strength.

I get mirgaines too from time to time. I am sure you have heard this, but when I feel one appraoching I drink a cup of black coffee or a coke. The caffine and sugar are natural seritionin(the happy hormone) inhancers. This helps the migraine go away. Works for me when I have a minor migraine. I get blurred vision too, it's so annoyingly painful, especially when you are trying to work on homework or something that envolves seeing.

Hope you are feeling better today, and that your son is pulling out of the bug.
Love ya!
