Random Acts of Kindness -Act XXII

Taking care of the family

Good morning everyone! It's been quite a weekend in the Wallis household. It started on Friday with our youngest getting sick and over the weekend it spread to my husband. So I guess I've been able to perform many acts of kindness over the weekend as I've kept the family going as a one woman show. Trying to take care of the sick ones and protecting the ones that are still healthy. I've done loads and loads of laundry, I've tried to clean and disinfect the entire house, I've bought gingerale, crackers and chicken soup. I've brought blankets and pillows and comforting words. I've taken temperatures, dispensed advil and insured they had enough fluids. I've kept sick ones company and healthy ones occupied. I'm happy to say that my daughter bounced back rather quickly (just like I used to when I was younger) and I'm hoping the worst is behind for my husband. My fingers are crossed that my older daughter and myself have avoided this menace.

In amongst all this our newish computer has completely tanked over the weekend. I think I should get a kindness award for not pulling the computer out of the wall and throwing it out the back door. I mean, taking care of the family just comes naturally you just want to make everyone better but with the computer it took some major restraint on my part!! It's pretty difficult to lead an on-line life when you can't get on-line! So please be patient as I may not be able to post as often as I wish to while we try to resolve it's problems.

...and now I must go to get another load of laundry in. Hoping to be back soon.
