To blog or not to blog

I have been sitting in front of my computer all morning thinking of whether I should blog today or not... I am already running out of things to blog and after completing a post earlier and before I could save/publish it, it was lost! Blogger ask me to sign in and when I did, the post that I have just created was gone!

That was yesterday... obviously I decided not to blog...

Amazing Race 8: Family Edition premiers tonight on CBS at 9pm EST.

...oOo...

I am a night person, I can stay up as late as I want to (not partying though)... sometimes doing housechores, surfing, blogging, emailing, scrapping or just simply watching tv or a movie at home with hubby. And because I sleep late, I prefer to wake up late too. I'm definitely not a morning person.

On weekdays, I have to force myself out of the bed by 6:30am to get the kids ready for school. And on weekends, I tend to sleep till about 10am since hubby is here to take care of the kids... My alarm clock would be the screaming of my daughter out of frustration, the fighting over which program to watch, my kids jumping on my bed, or simply the loud tv.

The past week had been different though. The house was very quiet even on the weekends. I spent 10 days of sleepless nights waiting on my kids as they alternately got sick! Yes, both of my kids were sick!

They both have 2 different type of medicines to take and at different hour of the day... its especially hard for me in the middle of the night... cause as I was just dosing off, I have to wake up again. And once I'm up, I can't just go back to bed and continue my sleep. From midnite to 4am, I have to give the kids their medicines every hour. So I was basically up till about 4am (the next dose of medicine is at 8am)...

On the 8th day of this kind of schedule, I was beat, luckily it falls on the weekend. So hubby was here to attend to the kids and give them brunch. It's also a good thing that I left hubby a note (which I scribble in the dark at 4am) for the kid's next medicine time. Since both of my kids were sick, my normal alarm clock didn't go off -- no loud noise, no shouting, no fighting to wake me up in the morning. Hence I woke up at 12:30pm on saturday and at 11am on sunday.

Now everything is back to normal... they are both healthy and strong, active and hyper again! I'd rather have my noisy and messy kids anytime... rather than see them suffering from being too sick.

I totally agree with you.

If the kids are naughty, you want them to stop, but the only time that they'll stop is when they are sick, and by then you'll wish that they rather be noisy than quietly sitting on the bed. So many times (if not over) I let my kid shout to the top of his voice and let him play all his toys to the limit of even destroying the whole house.

That's I think is a happy boy.

Lam,

its easy for you to say that --

"I let my kid shout to the top of his voice and let him play all his toys to the limit of even destroying the whole house"

-- because you have a maid to pick up after your son! Sad to say, I have to control everything before it gets out of hand... but as I've said, I'd rather have them noisy and messy than sick.

Yes, I admit I had an advantage in terms of it, but that's only on weekdays. On every sunday and public holiday, the maid is off-duty, and we have to take care him ourselves. pero syempre compare to your 7 days 24 hours, wala kami.
Mas makulit yan under our supervision compare to with the maid.
and believe me, minsan ay sugat-sugat yan sa kakukulit.

But anyway, our point here naman is we rather see our kids being naughty than sick.
