I have been under the weather since Friday. I came home from a coop meeting with colds and a splitting headache. Today, I am coughing incessantly that I avoided talking. As much as I want to tell the kids what to do or reprimand them, I resulted to pointing and whispering instructions. They thought I was playing a game of charades with them because they were laughing at me. I wanted to shout, “Stop laughing! Mama can’t talk!” But every time I try to say something I’ll be coughing my head off. Finally, after showing the right non-verbal actions, they got it.
Peewee is on school break, so he gets to be in charge while I am resting my throat. This morning, while I quietly did my usual chores, I saw him doing minor repairs on the bicycles. After lunch, I heard that he being assisted by the kids as he cleaned my father’s car. Too bad I was not able to take photos of them getting wet but was able to take a few shots while Peewee was detailing the car’s interior.
I need to get some rest and relish my silent day. Hoping to unzip my lips very soon.
