It is said that you should trust that somethings happens for a reason. The last two weeks have been more of "oh my" than "hurray". We had a lovely stay at my mother-in-law and came home rested. Oldest daughter went to school and youngest daughter started her internship at the local flower store. I had plans for having fun with photography, dolls and painting. Well, nothing of this happened.
First we thought it was mosquito bites. Then that it was allergies. But then it was chicken pox. On a teenager. Surprise, surprise! Youngest daughter got the spots first and some days later the fever and other symptoms came. I phoned the nurse at the local health care centre and she was totally sure that it was chicken pox and said that we should keep her home at least for 7-10 days. There was nothing to do about this. And now our oldest daughter has it and are home, with spots and fever.

This gave us some extra work to contact schools, theatre, church and let others know, so that they can be prepared. Chicken pox is highly a contagious disease, so it is best to inform about it. We were a bit nervous about our youngest daughter - she had rehearsals at the theatre and premiere on the weekend that week. But she recovered fine and could stand on stage doing her three roles together with the group she is in, in a fantasy story about this world and another world, how these meet. At school there has been two calm weeks with not so much to catch up on, so that is nice and both girls will be healthy for the trip to Poland in the beginning of May, with their confirmation group. So, we can breathe out.

It was rather tough on us all. I got so tired and started to wonder if I was going to get sick too. Have not had chicken pox as a kid. I had just some moments to socialize with my dolls and the outer world. Took some photos of Ghoulia Yelps. Hope to do better this week. But, that is life. And we had good weather! Always something!
