Just ranting for today
Well, I had a kind of funny day today.
Went to bed really late last night(3am) trying to sort out some computer download programme, then had sort of planned in my head quite a few things to do for today.
Got up late, after 8am, just barely enough time to get kids all ready for school.By the time everyone's at the door waiting to go out, I couldn't find my keys.Was only 5 to nine, school was just about to start, I rushed through the house trying to look everywhere for the keys and couldn't find it. So rang hubby, he didn't have a clue. He said he didn't touch it at all. Ok, back looking for my keys, and then hubby rang back, he got my keys in his pocket. He told me he's not too far away today, so he'd just come back. I asked how long it would take, he said should be within half an hour. So I waited, about half an hour, still didn't see any sign of his return. Then Ellie rang him, and told me he's five minutes away. So I got kids all with their bags and bottles, hats,etc. walking out and waiting by the car. We waited and played, walked back and forth, still didn't see a sign. So we returned back to the house. Eventually hubby returned around 10:30.
Ok, finally got to take kids to school and daycare and then I could get on with my things. Got back, made a cuppa, had some breckie, but before I could even finish the cuppa, the daycare rang...They found Jamie with headlice, and wanted me to pick up Jamie and Kate immediately.
Soooo, head lice....nice, I've never bumped into that one before. And the rest of the day was kind of busy....washed everyone's hair with treatment, washed all the linen and clothes, towels, spent hours on Jamie's hair trying to find something....I thought the treatment had killed all the lice but I could still see little dots moving or seemingly moving... so washed hair again....more towels to wash. Then picked Ellie and did the hairwash thing again. By the time hubby got home and ready for his turn of hairwash, the hot water had ran out. Then he told me he had just heard some talk over the radio saying you don't have to wash all the linen and clothes...those lices will only stay alive for at most an hour. But the stuff I read told me to soak the clothes and linen in boiling water before wash.
Oh well, hope kids won't keep scratching their heads tomorrow.
