Lock-down drill at school today saw Shelly and I sharing the storage room with our least favourite teacher and 21 hot, stinky Year 7 kids.
Even better when the
stupid young teacher thought I should squat down to be more out of sight (for 10 minutes – I think not). I couldn’t sit down as there was not enough room on the floor … I would have done this.
But squat? no way.
So I stood up. Still out of sight. Citing a non-existent dodgy knee.
I’m glad I knew about it and warned K&H it would be on as the alarm is quite loud and scary.
In other news, I stayed at school all afternoon and hear all the year 1s read from H’s class. I have to say that he is really quite good. … and he *likes* reading which is even better.
Then Mum took the kids out to buy my birthday present. I shall see the delights of the $2 shop tomorrow.
I must be more stressed than I think I am….
…I’ve had acne rosacea break out on my chin on Feb 27 … and linger. The face wash and acidic cream are not helping it much.
I only get this when my body is stressed, but my mind tells me I’m OK.
The first time was during Honours year at Uni. It cleared up (finally) when I took a course of antibiotics for some other infection.
The second time was 6 weeks before we were married. The &^*( old doctor I saw in the small town where we lived was very unhelpful … but luckily the local pharmacist (and neighbour) was much more accommodating and my face was blister-free within days.
Then I got it when I was pregnant with H. The pregnancy that followed the miscarriage at 10 weeks. The pregnancy when I was stressed out of my brain that *something* would go wrong. No antibiotics that time…
Then nothing until now … a year after you died.
So while I really do feel OK in the wider scheme of how completely horrible this year has been, my body obviously is not feeling the love.
I have a few blisters on my chin and just as soon as one lot heal, another lot bubble up.
I’m persevering with OTC cream, but fear that I may need the dreaded antibiotics before much longer…
A hug from you would fix this.
I know it.
I need you.
I miss you.
I love you.
