Of infection and pretty cards

Dear Readers,

On the first day of Spring I found myself feeling aches all over my body and a strange pain in the throat.  It was a stormy and cold day so I blamed it on the weather and thought a good night sleep would make it all better.  The next day I was shivering in bed with a 102 F fever.  The doctor confirmed it was a throat infection and gave me antibiotics. 

The weather is warmer today and I am already feeling better although my throat still hurts.  At least the fever is gone but not the body aches and head aches.  Last week was plagued with baby's ear infection (yet another one but this time with pus discharge and a very distressed baby) and it was finally clearing out when it was my turn to get sick.

So I skipped work for two days, unable to get out of bed.  This is my second day and I think I am strong enough to return to work tomorrow.  I got really mad at my husband for giving the babysitter a day off yesterday because he thought I could take care of the baby since I stayed home.  O_o  Can somebody tell me if that sounds logical?  Even when I am sick with a bad cold, I still drag myself to the office.  If I have to take a day off, it means I am too sick to work!  But the top is my boss emailing me some works he needs me to do today.  Like really?  >.<

Somethings did cheer me up immensely though.  I received a pretty birthday card from Jennifer at PlushPussyCat.  Thank you so much Jennifer.  It is a really thoughtful gift!  This one is a photo of her Strawberry Shortcake dolls.  If I remember correctly, the backdrop is from the Hello Kitty dollhouse that Jennifer blogged about HERE and HERE.   I just love how she decorated that house!  One can usually buy postcards and birthday cards from Jennifer's Etsy Shop or you can get them from an actual storefront shop too.


This is all for today's blog entry.  I am back to bed so I can be up on my two feet tomorrow.  Let's hope the good weather will stay and we won't deal with stormy cold days anymore!

Have a good week y'all!

  4. Hope you are feeling much better now!! In Sweden, if you are home from work, you are not even allowed to take care of a baby too, if you're on sick-leave, you have to get another person to take care of the baby. My husband have had to stay at home from his work to take care of our kid when I have been very sick, but I never work (since I'm a housewife) so I have to say myself how bad I feel and if I want him to be home with the kid =) Hope you got some rest anyway, taking care of a kid while you are sick is no pick-nick... =)

  5. Hi Jane Cherie, So sorry to hear about your baby's terrible ear infection and your awful throat infection. I'm so sorry you've had to go through all of this. I'm glad my card might have given you a little joy during this ordeal. :-) I'm so glad winter is coming to an end. This is the worst one I remember for bad colds and flus. I was sick three times! Ugh! Thank you for this beautiful write-up--you're a doll! <3 xo Jennifer
