OOC: Going to be a long summer

25 Jun

This summer ,we had so many ideas we wanted to do with the kids , especially since they will have august free from any prior activities.. however with this viral flu going about . that pretty much curtailed alot of it, as well as the Teacher’s Strike in British Columbia that pretty much ended the school year two weeks earlier than planned.. however I have nothing but the fullest support for our teachers, as they pretty much had to work with overcrowded classrooms, little funding from the provincial government,and no contract since last year. 

 With three out of five in the household having to do into emergency, my middle child having to go into ER this morning ; only to find she has a touch of pneumonia ;a result from the viral infection that has been going about .Thankfully her brother and sister ,have pretty much recovered from their bouts, but her dad, is on antibiotics , after having to go into ER himself,and being treated for pneumonia like symptoms which hadn’t quite developed into a full blown case.

So its lots of chicken soup, plenty of liquids and lots of rest for us grocery shopping pretty much  consisted of ingredients for chicken soup, juice, light meals ,and not much else.Not much point when no one has the appetite to eat, nor able to eat much ,so its been lots of broth… at least we got bills paid, rent covered,and some money coming in from strike pay.. tomorrow hubby can apply for Unemployment benefits to get us through summer.On the plus side however, at least it’s early enough in the summer, we can get over the worst of it, and hopefully do some quiet things as a family while everyone gets over this bug.
