Sick and unfit has its perk

A lethal combination of gastritis and migraine attack sent me crashing on the bed for 4 hours yesterday. Unable to move, head splitting, bile up my throat. I kept vomitting until i just sat slumped beside the toilet. I made the mistake of taking my migraine med first and then remembered an hour later when my tummy ached and twisted that i SHOULD take the gastric pill first, ALWAYS. Oh god, the realization just double up the pain.

I also realise i'm so unfit because my tummy cramps when i heave and squeeze to vomit, like the muscle is jolted and shocked to suddenly be squeezed so many times. Muscle like i'm not already dying. I'm sure i won't have muscle cramps if i had done push ups. Regularly. Sick and unfit. Can i be more sad?

In my sadness though, my spirits upped by the show of kindness and maturity from the kids. Them and their cousins are all here. One immediately brought me water and made me sandwich, another collect the dirty clothes and put in the washer, the others tidied up the kitchen. They tiptoed around making sure not to bother me. They can actually do chores unsupervised. (tunggu sakit dulu la kan baru merasa). Its sweet though.

This morning the girls were up early wanting to hang the clothes but i've already done it.i'm feeling better. When i went down after shower, they were in the kitchen trying to make breakfast. One was frying the egg, the other spooning the rice out with the idea to fry it. She got the perencah nasi goreng out and the oil but wasn't sure how to proceed. (insert 'aaaaawwww' here for cuteness).

Once in a while i think its worth it to be sick and unfit. Don't you?

The excuse

I have neglected blogging because i have been maidless, and still is, so i'm a little bit bogged down with endless chores, and during the time that i'm not exhausted, i cherish the chance to curl up in bed watching tv rather than blog. I'm into Korea soaps these days. Luckily one has ended (i'm following 2 drama series). I don't intend to get hooked again after this but who knows.

I've got more time and energy to blog now since the school is over. Just some updates around here - the eldest is off on a school trip to Terengganu for the national scout event. The youngest misses him more than we do. He can't sleep in their room now that he's in there alone, so we got his cousin over to accompany him. He suggests that we all go holiday to Terengganu. (what can you do in Tganu anyway, other than visiting Sri's inlaws, dan apa kaitan?).

I dislike a post without picture but my camera is now with the travelling son and i hate taking pics on my iphone and transferring to this ipad.

As i'm writing this, hubby and kids are downstairs cheering on Malaysia soccer team against Indonesia. I'm the only one in the house who don't speak football. Even my daughter knows a bit about the national team. Me, ada aku kesah?

By the way have you all collected the cash from school? I've got the primary school's today, i'm collecting the secondary's tomorrow. I wish they hurry up about this. Luckily we didn't leave the country. We are doing cuti-cuti Sabah this time after Azim gets back the week after next.

Ok , that's all for now, as Najwa said, Got To Go.

Happy holidays! Have fun!

(They've gone quiet downstairs. They were cheering so loud earlier. Are we losing?)
