A Very Busy Day For This Wonder Mom ( Momimhar posted on February 10th, 2022 )

Educational and entertainment toys

I had a hectic schedule today. I had three commitments/appointments today–doctor’s appointment, Tribe Store volunteering at darling daughter’s school, and yearly wellness checkup for K.

Doctor’s Appointment

Since I already finished the 10-day dose of the prescribed medication, I took the earliest appointment I can get with my doctor. As you know, I had the severe case of contact dermatitis occurred more than two weeks ago to the point a small part of my left neck got infected. It looked hideous. I had to cover my neck with scarves or wear a turtleneck top and high-collared jackets every time I go out or go to work. It was uncomfortably itchy, especially at night. Anyway, I finally decided to get my doctor’s advice and that’s when she prescribed antibiotics. Today was a follow-up checkup after the medication period. Everything looked okay and healed. Special creams for scars and itchiness had been prescribed again to help with the healing process.

Tribe Store Volunteering

School supplies and other toys

I didn’t take any substitute teaching assignment today for the reason that I already volunteered to help at the Tribe Store at darling daughter’s school. If I remember it right, this is the second year the school hold the Tribe Store. It was a huge success last school year. The first items sold out were the drinks and snacks. ‘Learned a lesson. This year, they stocked the drinks and snacks really well. 🙂 There are educational and entertaining toys, school supplies, recreational items, and accessories available for purchase.

Drinks and snacks

You must be wondering how this Tribe Store work? The students earn tribe tickets for showing good behavior in or outside the classroom. They also earn these tickets by showing the Traits of a Brave throughout the school and working hard on their assignments with focus and diligence. They will be given a tally sheet to record the tickets they received and at a certain time when the Tribe Store date is near, the students are given the opportunity to compute for the total amount of the tickets gathered. Then they will be sent to the Tribe Store according to the designated time by class to shop for the items that interest them. It’s really fun watching the students budget their points and shopping wisely. 🙂 One student happen to complain that some items seemed to be overpriced. Haha!

Wellness Checkup

Gladly, I was able to sign out my darling daughter for the day after the Tribe Store duty around noon. We headed home and ate lunch first before driving to town to see her pediatrician for her yearly wellness checkup. I was told by the doctor from the last wellness checkup that K will be getting two vaccines today. She sure did. She was a little scared at first, but calmed down after I held her hand. It didn’t even take a minute, and the shots were administered quickly. Now her upper left arm is starting to feel sore, she said. The next shots, boosters, will be given when she’s 16 years old.

Darling daughter is growing healthy and developing very well. Thank goodness, she hasn’t fallen ill these last couple of years. Her last nosebleed was two months ago when I forgot to run the humidifier one evening. That was it. I am doing my best to diligently run the humidifier every night, especially during cold season. We’re doing a great job so far. I think she’s outgrowing the nosebleed thing soon.

Covid-19 Vaccine ( Momimhar posted on March 20th, 2021 )

Hello everyone! Happy Spring! How are you doing lately? I hope everything is doing fine.

As for me, my family and I are doing great! No sickness so far…thank goodness. We were doing our best to keep each other healthy. Although, the mandate of wearing a mask has been lifted here in Texas, we are still taking precautions and being responsible. We stay home when there is no important need to go out. School is strict on mask.

I just had my first and second doses of vaccine for Covid-19. The first one was administered in February and the second was administered this month. The second dose of the vaccine had a bad side effect on me. I was miserable for three days. I had joint pains, chills, nausea, and traveling headache. It was weird because the ache moved from one place in my head to another. My left arm was very sore that I couldn’t lift it at all. I didn’t have a nasal congestion or anything like that. Just the body soreness. I felt terrible.

But after all that, I was back to normal. Yes, I felt great. I was glad I took the opportunity to accept the school’s offer for a free vaccine via Allen Fire Department. It was provided by Moderna.

I hope you all are keeping yourselves healthy and safe. I cannot wait for this pandemic to be all over, you know?

Are We In Distance Learning For The Rest Of The School Year? ( Momimhar posted on April 9th, 2020 )

And just like that, we all are in Shelter-in-Place. Well, it wasn’t very clear to me what is Shelter-in-Place is according to the Collin County press conference a couple of weeks ago. After President Trump announced that the country is in the State of Emergency because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we started quarantining since we got back from our yearly Spring Break traveling the week of March 16.

Our school district announced an extended Spring Break week to help them plan. And by the end of the that week, an announcement from the district was sent over social media via emails stating that they are closing the schools for the health and safety of everyone. It was until April 3rd then school closure is currently moved to May 1st. It is still unclear if the school will reopen in May but I am expecting that we will be in Distance Learning for the rest of the school year.

This is the third week of our home schooling and we are doing great so far, I guess. How about you? How are you all doing in this distance learning thing?
