A pulled muscle and Strep throat too

I knew Warren was sick when he wanted to play couch potato. My son is normally the kind of kid, who couldn't sit still if you offered to pay him. After taking him to the walk in peds clinic, the doctor basically told him to play couch potato. It seems that in addition to his sunburn, my son also pulled a muscle in his leg (the x-ray showed there was nothing major), which he has to stay off of, and his sore throat tested positive for strep, so we are no doing the anti-biotics routine. Poor kid, no wonder he feels in his words, "like a truck hit me".

So we got the prescription and picked up a couple of tv dinners, some popscicles and a rootbeer. Then we went home and set him up on the couch to watch tv. He enjoyed not having to get up, except to use the bathroom. Then he decided he wanted to rent movies. So we made a quickie trip to Take2Video. He had Pokemon 2000 (Have I ever mentioned I loathe Pokemon,..they are evil I tell you), I have The Ring.

After Pokemon he was feeling better, and at 8:00 told me that he wanted supper. (We had the tv dinners around 5pm, but that wasn't enough for him) His dinner choices, grilled ham and (muenster - his favorite- go figure)cheese and clam chowder. (I hate it, he loves it). I also gave him some more advil and a vitamin to help him feel better and heal faster. I think the antibiotics are also helping already. He says his throat doesn't hurt as much, and he is actually eating again.

I am debating on if I should stay home again tommorrow or send him to daycare. He hasn't had a fever since this morning, and he is on antibiotics. It won't be a full 24 hours, but I can't afford to miss another day's pay. His leg only seems to be a problem, when he didn't have shoes on. One of the nice things about a kid Warren's age, is they have the vocabulary to tell you and the doctor exactly what happened, where it hurts and so on and so on. He is also able to give his name, address, and how to spell his name (its a Lithuanian name that sounds like it is spelled and is spelled like it sounds, but that almost no one has a clue to.. I won't give it out on line, but its very similiar to Mischief). I remember when he was a baby, and it was guessing game as to what was wrong. Night long crying fits, where I didn't have a clue what was bothering him. I'll take talking anyday, even if it comes with the occasional backtalk. At least I can talk back.

And of course I didn't get a single thing done.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
