Here we go again..

I am not which is worse : getting chicken pox during the school holidays or as school starts? It totally sucks either way.

Ash, for some reason, got the pox just last weekend; the weekend before starting school. She'll be out for at least 2 weeks. It's a bummer really because she's totally bummed out staying home. As it is, we totally didn't do anything during the second week of the holidays except to a friend's place for a swim. Even then, it is not as though we did anything significant during the first week either.

Our school holidays for the past 2 weeks have been extremely subdued. The only major event was hopping by Pavilion to watch the Penguin show on a Saturday. That was it. No traveling, no adventure-type outing, zilch. So where and how did she get it? I was told not to ponder, wonder..because, we all have to get it at least once in our lifetime. So, ok, I shall stop the wondering process this instant.

After the bout of HFMD tragedy, I'm just taking it easy. Well, 'easy' as in after the initial shock that is because apart from the spotty look on her now, she seems pretty chirpy. Perhaps the itchy feeling hasn't settle in yet, i am not sure. But, as of right now, she's bored out of her mind. I've sent Mini over to the inlaws. I am not sure how much that'll spare Mini from getting the chicken pox since they were inseparable. But...whatever, lets hope she will be (spared).

Ash totally misses her sister whenever they are apart. She even got me to call Mini just to check on her. Mini also got her grandma to call us. They just can't stand being apart. It's truly heartwarming to see them together and to have that sisterly connection between them. It's nice...when they are not trying to chop each other's head off...:-D.

Honestly, what on earth am I going to do for 2 weeks? I can already see cobwebs on her head and on mine. I should start counting sheeps or look for backyard cabanas. May God help us!!
