My life as a woman, wife and mother.

For the love of GOD!

on April 14, 2013

No, this is not a religious post, I’m not all that religious. Instead, it’s an ‘oh maaaannnn’ post.

Let’s start at 3am. L comes into my bedroom says, “Mom, I don’t feel well” and then bolts from my bedroom into the bathroom. Hubby goes to check on her and she wants me. I go in and we get her set up on the couch with a bucket and towels. I got back to bed for a bit.

When I get up she’s sick a few more times and then sleeps on and off.

Later on C gets up and we are sitting by each other on the sofa. For some odd reason I decide to look at her hair, like really look at it. What do I see? Lice! Well, we’ve been down this road before, like July 2010 to be exact (I had to look it up in my blog). So I got out the lice shampoo and we went to work. After the 10 minutes I washed it out and set up combing through her entire head! Have I mentioned that C has extremely thick hair, it doesn’t matter that it’s long since the nits are 1″ or so from the scalp, it just matters that she has a lot of hair to go through. A LOT! It took around 90 minutes with a couple of breaks thrown in. Thankfully this infestation is nowhere near as bad as 2010. I only found 4 little nymphs, NO adults and less than 30 nits. I’m going to be rechecking her head in a bit. I’m just glad I caught it today because I was able to treat it and she won’t miss school. I did call 2 moms this morning of the girls she encountered yesterday. Not that the girls were touching heads or anything, but just an FYI.

L has been sleeping quite a bit and hasn’t gotten sick since around noon. She won’t be going to school tomorrow since they need to be 24 hours illness-free before they are allowed to return. She’s mad that she’ll miss school! 😛 I’ve scanned her head briefly and don’t really see anything, but I want to shampoo her anyway. That’s going to need to wait a bit until she can sit upright for the 10 minutes and hang her head over the sink while I rinse it out.

So, that’s my life! Blerg…

No workout for me today. I opted for another day off. The scale said 148.8# which is getting back to where I like to be.

My upcoming week looks like this….

  • Monday – exercise at home, Zumba, scan heads for nits
  • Tuesday – exercise, piano?, scan heads for nits
  • Wednesday – exercise, work at Weight Watchers, scan heads for nits
  • Thursday – exercise?, work at Weight Watchers, scan heads for nits
  • Friday – exercise, Zumba, early release from school, dance at school at night, scan heads for nits

Nothing too exciting, although if Lice is going to be the excitement I’d prefer my boring life!

    ARGH! Just…argh! I feel so badly for you guys. Lice + vomiting = too much for a mom and her kids to handle. 😦

    I hope L is feeling much better and that C’s parasites are done bugging her.

    Thanks so much! Things are a bit better now AND it could always be worse!
