Recovering from a rough week

I’m here all, and thanks to those that gave me a visit or dropped by my blog this week. I had to take some downtime and although I’m still not back up to speed I’m getting there.

Where shall I start? I came down with something and I been sick, I did fairly well though through the winter and tending to the kids when they got sick but it was no escaping me this time, kiddo’s are okay thank goodness other than a small cough from little one, he’s been rigorously taking his asthma treatments. Hubby not feeling too well himself so we been lysoling the place up behind ourselves.

Fell a bit behind in school, I’m supposed to turn in assignments and met with my teacher for a 15 minute session once a week since I’m doing self taught learning courses this semester aside from my Saturday class. My appointment was for this past Monday but I didn’t make it because not only was I sick, but both my parents were as well along with Presidents Day and no school for the boys so I was out of luck being sick myself plus no babysitter. I was already a week behind in this class when it started because my youngest went into the hospital with his asthma the same week this class started up, missing my first meet and orientation and now after this week I’m actually two weeks behind now. I kept moving ahead with my assignments though so hopefully they’ll get accepted.

My bones is sore, my muscles is aching, my ears are ringing and my head is pounding along with congestion, burning eyes and sore throat, can it get any worse?

My computer information class started out as a campus class but I dropped it the first week after reading through the syllabus and realizing I wasn’t going to be able to pull it off by the teachers standards and strict attendance policy of x amount of tardiness or absences equal automatically removal from the class by him. Again I missed this first day of class with my son's Dr. appt. I did stay after class to see just how stern he was and mentioned to him that I knew I wouldn’t be able to pull off the best attendance but that I would still try my best to have all work turned in on time or early to try to pull an A from the class, explained my household situation of raising a child with special needs and not knowing one day from the next, just as I have always done with any employer or educator, I feel me being honest upfront works best as my flexibility is often limited, anyway it didn’t fly with him. No exceptions made for me and I understand I don’t go around expecting special treatment, but at least after being honest and open up front I have always found to work better so in the event of my absent for a longer than usual time frame won't be a major shock and can be expected plus it leaves the door open as to how to go about if I’ll be the right employee or student or team mate for any group assignments etc.. Anywho, no problem I just dropped the class for fear of being dropped to take the class self taught on my own time and pace mostly. Therefore I got a new syllabus and once again a behind schedule start for this class as well. By the way when my son went into the hospital that time away from class would have had me already dropped from the class, so I’m glad I dropped the class.

I have really been catching hell this week trying to get myself caught up before mid terms and fight through this sickness. To make things worse my main pc has been infected with a virus and I’m getting the blue screen of death. I already had firewall, antivirus, spy ware detection and firewall running so how I got infected is beyond me.

Valentines Day went fine nothing major as it’s honestly just another day. We went out for dinner as a family which is the norm because again a sitter for us is slim to none and we have just accepted the fact and adapted to it, so it’s no longer disappointing for us, when we already know what to expect. That was about that we enjoyed the dinner out and break from cooking and doing dishes afterward.

Unfortunately I really like entrecard and I haven’t been active since my main pc caught the virus b/c I need my laptop for school and can’t take the chance of getting a virus on this one. I will try to continue to drop from my favorite’s but since I will no longer be using the toolbar and multiple tabs I don’t know how active I’ll remain, I’ll have to update you with this one, for now whenever I do it will definitely be only from my fav’s and I’ll overlook them and at least make sure I got all my fav’s and if I’m missing anyone I’ll have to add them in. Not to say I in fact got this virus from dropping but I know I have dropped over a few blogs that either mentioned they caught a virus or stopped a malicious script and I do recall seeing a warning about this before in the past as well, but with multiple tabs open I haven’t an honest clue. Other than then the kids and I both play online games occasionally but we’ve been doing this for years with no problem and I do ptc programs but again been doing this for awhile and lately only been using laptop for them, so as far as visiting new site’s I do that most often when ec dropping.

Be careful make sure all securities is updated and running and use them often. I can’t believe I got infected with all I have installed, but so well for that, so yes my pc is currently still down. As for school I still have some catching up to do but I just wanted to say I’m still here haven’t left blogging but I’m tremendously busy with school this semester and it’s not going as easy of a breeze as it once was so I have to dedicate more of my time into studying at the moment, plus kids after school activities twice a week has started back up for this season and somewhere in between this all falls cooking and household duties so yea, I’m pretty swamped right now in general.

Wishing everyone a great weekend and sorry I’ve been inactive with my blog and reading and dropping by yours, but I have to prioritize and don’t ask where my great ability of multi tasking went? Let me check and see if it flew out the window :) Yes, I think it did I guess sooner or later it’ll come back to me ;)

Hey Naye, sounds like a really busy / rough week. Hope you are feeling better!

That's stinks about the virus on your computer, hopefully you can get it removed.

Have a good weekend and take it easy.

Coupon Dad, yes I'm normally used to busy weeks, but rough and busy together equaled tough week indeed. I'm feeling much better. As for my computer I haven't even taken the time to really deal with it at the moment.Hopefully I can get it back up and running. Thanks a lot and you have a great week!

I'm sorry you've been having a rough time. Things will get better. So many people seem to be combating computer viruses. That's a mess. Hopefully, yours will be back in no time.


MakingMoney said...

attygnorris, thanks a lot. It was really a shocker considering I have what is considered layered protection but yet a virus managed to leak through on me anyhow. I hope I get it back up. Things most definitely will be better overall, I been hanging in there and getting through it.

Feel better, and hope everything works itself out soon! ;)

Hi Naye! Welcome back! I hope everything will be back to normal (you and your family's health and your pc...) God bless and take care!!!

MakingMoney said...

Fitness Diva, thanks so much!! Yea my plate is loaded but things should be back on track soon for me / us. Making progress and getting there. Things sure can get hectic when the balance gets offset but that's life for you with a curve ball here and there every now and then.

ally, thank you so much for the welcome back and kind words. My family is doing better but the pc has been awaiting my attention, I plan to look more into it this weekend, finger's crossed I hope it isn't ruined for the long haul.

I'm so sorry to hear your sick. It's so hard to take care of the kids, get through life and then take care of yourself when your sick. We've been pretty sick in my house too. It's been going on for almost 3 weeks now. The little one and I both have pneumonia right now. Uggg! I hope you start feeling better soon. Take care.

Preston said...

OMG, here I am complaining about having the blahs and here you are with real problems. Yikes. I hope it all gets better for you. I'm pulling for ya...

MakingMoney said...

Michelle, oh no not pneumonia. It is definitely hard trying to maintain the household while being sick, thankfully I'm feeling better. Hope you both get better soon as well.

Preston, aww thanks a great deal for pulling for me it's greatly appreciated. I hope your blah goes better for you, we all go through problems at some point in time, here's wishing for the better!
