Chicken Pops

Recovering from the chicken pox with some chickens

Finally free of her “Chicken Pops” the girlie was thrilled to be out in the sunshine at the Forestry Farm Park and Zoo.  And what better way to celebrate getting over the Chicken Pox than to hang out with chickens.  LOL  If we couldn’t be spending Easter with family, I can’t think of anything I’d rather have done.

It’s not the plague! (chicken pox and electoral reform)

Okay…  so the girlie is almost over the chicken pox.  She still has spots, but they are healing.  She doesn’t have the virus any longer.  She’s not sick.  She just has some spots that still need to heal.  I’m still keeping her home from pre-k, there’s only one day left until Easter break anyway.  BUT she’s got some serious cabin fever, and so do I.  So we went out.  Not far, and not really in public anywhere.

We went to see my Mom.  She’s heading out of town tomorrow, and will be gone all weekend.  She and Lily-Ann are really close, and they haven’t seen one another since Saturday.  Figured we better head over for a visit before she leaves town.  🙂  Because if we didn’t, that would just be too long to keep them apart.

Afterwards we were outside at our place.  The girlie was still needing to blow off a little steam, so was running up and down the sidewalk.  One of the moms who was also outside looked at her like Lily had the plague.  I mentioned, casually, that she doesn’t have the virus any more… just has spots left that still need to clear up.  Just the same, she looked awfully relieved when we were a few houses away.  LOL  Oh well.

I also had a nice chance to chat with Mark (or Marc, not sure on the spelling) our neighbour.  With me being on lock down with the girl I haven’t seen him in a little while.  The two of us usually have great conversations.  Him having been formerly involved in a life political, and me being involved in the same.  We both agreed that the current national election has us shaking our heads.  While we may pull for different teams, he and I generally see eye to eye on the giant deficits our country and province face in terms of the broken electoral system.  Without reform there’s really not much point.  But we’ll both continue encouraging people to get out and vote.  Because if we don’t participate, what is already broken becomes devastatingly so.

Too tired to be interesting…

Yep, you heard me.  LOL  I’m just way too tired to be interesting tonight.  The chicken pox have a way of wearing out not just the infected person, but everyone around them.  I’m definitely looking forward to eventually being on the other side of this whole thing.  Poor kid not only has itchy ickies everywhere, but has cabin fever too.  She’s just dying to get outside and be somewhere – anywhere – but here.  All of which makes for a very long day, and a very tired mommy.

Chicken Pox

Well, we’re still battling our way through the dreaded bock pox.  Poor kid.  At least she got some real sleep last night though.  The couple nights previous came with very little rest – which makes everything harder, but especially so when you are sick.  So I hope you’ll forgive me for the short blog post.  The girlie is resting, so I’d kind of like to be doing the same…  but still lots of work to catch up on.  With her being sick, it leaves me little time for Camp fYrefly or TD Photography business.  She’s my priority, that’s just the way it is (and the way it should be too).

Scraptastic Saturday – Blog Train!

Hey everyone!  I’m going to be real quick here.  Poor wee girlie has the chicken pox…  or, as she calls them, “chicken spots”.  So I’m awfully tired.  Didn’t know it was possible to get them in all the places they’ve managed to show up.  I have to admit, I’m awfully glad the girl is asleep now.  She needed to get some rest.

Anyway…

Crystal, of Sugar Pie Scraps (selling exclusively at Polka Dot Plum), is celebrating her Designiversary this weekend.  She’s been working as a designer for a year now!  Hard to believe she has so many amazing kits when she’s only been doing this for a year.  Her stuff is absolutely awesome.
