Illness in the Family

Last week, Derwin had a rough couple days with flu-like symptoms that then turned into a nasty cold. He's feeling better but still isn't 100%. Then Kirsi got the cold a few days later. She's slowly getting better but still isn't done with the stupid thing. I've been doing a great job at fending off the evil thing but today, it got the best of me. I didn't sleep well last night, even though Der took Kirsi duty, and that was what did it. Darn it!! So, I'm now the pathetic looking one that can't taste and doesn't feel like doing a thing.

We decided to do a rotational sleeping arrangement while we're sick. The sick one sleeps downstairs with the door closed so s/he can sleep well. The other one sleeps in the guest room upstairs and takes Kirsi duty in the middle of the night if she wakes up. It seems to be working well so let's hope it keeps working.

Even though she's been sick, Kirsi still has tons of energy. She still wants to play and be on the go. She now begs to go to the "pay-gow" (playground) every day. So, we've been going to different playgrounds to play on the slides, swings and merry-go-rounds. Our area of Santiago is fantastic for having playgrounds all around so we can go to different ones all the time. But Kirsi's favourite one is where there's a horsey merry-go-round. Today we went to a little playground where there's also a duck pond. Kirsi was pretty fascinated by all the ducks that were there. Next time we'll have to make sure to take some stale bread with us so we can feed them.
