So much to do so little left

I haven't been feeling well at all for nearly a whole week. First it was the eye infection which is still not recovering. The redness has subsided tremendously, the pain has mellowed alot but my eyes are still swollen and the blur vision is still here. Luckily the body ache banished after a couple of days and the fever no longer in sight. According to doctor, this is might be a viral and bacteria infection, if the symptom persist for a week, it might be herpes! Gee sounds scary isn't it? Trying another dose of medicine and hopefully it works this time. Still coping with that, I am down with flu like symptom. My throat was like having someone rubbing sand down my throat, starting a nasty dry cough and though tired but couldn't sleep. I feel so shitty. But my poor princess hasn't been easy for her too. Though she is up and running but her eyes redness still didn't go away completely. I don't think it is wise for her to be in school despite her wanting so much. I know she is getting really bored. After my parents dropped by this early morning to give me a dose of herbal drink. I felt much better. I sum up some strength and got her involved in making our little chocolate waffles for tea time. She had hers with macadamia nuts ice cream and for me, I just had it plain to keep her company. Photobucket Though I haven't much appetite lately, the wonderful smell of the chocolate waffles filling the kitchen was really nice and comforting I better find back my energy by tomorrow morning Photobucket Recipe adapted from Chocolate Holidays by Alice Medrich What you need:
