I am tired…really tired…with my health, the weather, everything..for the past 10 days, I have been on medicines suffering from severe body ache, and then 3 days ago the throat ache started and it just leaves me so weak…I have no fever, no cold, no cough, and yet the tiredness of the body seems unbearable…
RD left for Vaishnav Devi on Friday morning..he asked me whether he wanted me to cancel the tickets but I told him to go ahead, knowing how they had planned everything etc etc..
so it was me and R over the last three days alone..
Friday was at work, I spent it pretty badly, doing nothing constructive honestly 😦
Picked up R, and then reached home too sick to do anything..the doctor changed the meds to take care of the throat ache..and then I was too tired…
Saturday R had a parent teacher meet at 11ish…I got up really late at about 7.30…the poor kid was awake since 6.30 but then kept telling me to sleep saying ‘Amma aapko fever hai na, thoda lie down karo’ Ah! Well, I love being a mother just for this alone..
I had plans to stay overnight with two of my old office friends along with R, but I realised I was too sick and at risk of spreading the infection…R was a bit disappointed since she wanted to meet her masis, but she said ‘its okay amma, you not well, we no go’
I didnt have plans to drop her to the daycare, but I was so sick, I realised I couldnt really take care of her…so dropped her to the daycare lying that I had to go to work since I had taken the Thursday off…yes yes, I felt horribly guilty about it 😦
Went to her school, and well, her exams start from August 27th and this was about what is going to be asked….I dont know how they expect 4 year olds to do so much, but thats another post in itself! may be I am only underestimating the kids!!
I came home and made my own food and then realised the importance of having someone at home for you…for all that I have written about managing alone, etc etc, I realised when you are sick you need someone around..if not anything, just to give you hot water for gargles 😦
Okie, I am feeling really sick, thats why the sentimental lines 🙂
Anyways, rested, picked up R in the evening and came back home…had the same rasam rice and slept early..infact R told me that she wanted to sleep early…I finished reading the HP-6 (yes I am re-re-re-re reading the series!)
got up with a bad throat ache..:( managed to convince R to stay alone while I had a bath..which is a big achievement…especially when it didnt involve TV,…she was doing her colouring while I had a bath…
I made her watch a lot of nursery rhymes on youtube..yaa yaa…I resorted to that because I had to cook and I was feeling too sick to sit with her…so did that and then we slept in the afternoon..
RD came at about 3 and honestly I dont think R was sleeping because no sooner the bell rang, she was like ‘Amma, appa, appa, appa’ screeching into my ears…!!
Thankfully he came…..he had his adventures in Vaishnav Devi which he didnt tell R and me, (Guess he didnt want to scare us) but one of his friends called up and both R and I over heard his story of the landslide and the cloud burst and him getting stuck for 8 hours while coming down..etc etc…
I guess,I just need a better day soon!!!
Most importantly, recover my health..for the first time I realised what they mean when they say ‘Health is wealth’
