Right in the middle of......

-- Spring cleaning. STILL. There's too much junk in the house. I am wishing for three whole days with nothing to do but clean. It's official. I've turned into my parents.

-- Treating the kids for severe asthma. Each kid has to be nebulized FIVE TIMES A DAY. Nebulizer = My Best Friend.

-- The busiest time at work. Talk about HELL WEEK. Hopefully, everything will be done by Monday next week. Crossing my fingers, legs and toes.

-- Fantasizing about a day off. Just me and a book. No brooms, mops, and laptops.

You put me to shame with your spring cleaning. I need to do it too but I'm not going to! (I'm such a rebel!)

Is the asthma to do with the time of year/season? Hope that clears up. That's not nice. Poor kids :(

Good luck with work honey!

YOU NEED THAT DAY OFF WITH A BOOK DATE! Fix a day and focus on that. Hopefully it'll help you get through the week!

Thinking of you!

Don't talk to me about cleaning... I'm about to move out of a rental property, I've got a LOT of cleaning to do in the next three days! hehe

Pacha,

Well, it's hard to say if it's the weather. The kids inherited it from the hubby who is also highly allergic. They always have a cold.

And the cleaning, goodness, it's been going on for months. I'm quite sick of it. But the kids' allergies are really forcing me to look at everything -- am thinking of giving away all the stuffed things, fabric covered couches need to be re-upholstered, etc.

Stace,
at least you've got a new place to look forward to which you can fix up any which way you want. I'd love to move to a new place.

Sandy,
Yeah, I know you've probably done your share of cleaning and packing up lately what with the new move and all. :D

Sabine,
join the club honey. :D

Princess,
LOL! Better get to it then. :D

Ekta,
I hope, I hope, I hope..... :D

Darlin, I think we are living parallel lives here...aside from the asthma (which my son had but fortunately outgrew) we are having the same life experiences right now.

I wish you great luck with all of them, and of course, most especially, with the children's health.

Hugs,
Laurie

Menchie see if you can get hold of a Dyson hoover...I bought ours when Eli got diagnosed with asthma...I know how exhausting it can be to keep everything dustfree...good luck with the big spring clean and my thoughts are with u!!

Stace said...

Menchie, you can move in here... then finish all the cleaning I haven't done yet ;)

Menchie said...

Keshi,

Laurie,
I know! I realized that after reading your latest post.

Aminah,

Thanks for the recommendation! I will try to look for it over here but I doubt since I've never seen that brand. i've gone through at least 5 vacuums already.

Stace,
HA ha! you wish! :P

Chriz,
hey there! thanks for stopping by! :D

Oh Menchie, my heart goes out to yor littlie who have asthma, my Tomas had it but has now grown out of it. In our own home, the one we owned, we had floor boards exposed and got rid of the carpets and anything that would attract the dust. Other than that, swimming was the thing we did. Thing is, my little brother still gets asthma and he is in his 30's now. So, even though my mum did the whole rip up the carpet thing, he stayed the same. Predisone made him run circles around us all when we were little, lol.

Cazzie,
I've gotten rid of the carpets already. My sister had it and the hubby does too so i guess it is too much to expect the kids not to have it.

It's not that bad though, they are just both very prone to colds and cough but do not need an inhaler (crossing my fingers).
