On thursday after work we let her play with her slide and was kinda happy to have her back. However, that night out of nowhere, she got a sore throat and cough. More sleepless nights for her and us because everytime she would get a bout of coughing, we'd wake up. We figured that it must have been why she had the fever. Anyway, it was a nasty cough so yesterday we took her to see her paeditrician and got a whole lot of medication. Things seemed to subside a little and we all enjoyed a nice long nap in the afternoon...well deserved under the circumstances.
Later my good buddy Sean came by with his wife for a little visit. It's his birthday today so we went out for a little pre-celebration dinner and took the little one with us...all wrapped up and cosy. We wanted to try the German bierhaus in the Curve but it was packed solid. Probably because Chinese new Year is almost here aand lotsa folks are oout shopping. So we headed to our favourite joint, Tony Roma's which is within walking distance. TR's was packed too and we were told that it might be a 30 minute wait. DOH...what do you expect on a Saturday night. However they did ask us if we wanted to sit outside where they have alfresco dining. It wasn't very popular last night because it was raining a little so we took a look and found that it was cozier outside not as stuffy as inside because of the crowd.
We were all so hungry after waiting that we ordered too much food. Moreover the portions were large and we struggled a little to finish but eventually did. Burp! Anyway after dinner we were in a joyouds mood and sang Chinese New Year songs all the way home! Well we only knew one song and kept singing the same song!! LOL Even Ellie chimed in...of course she wanted to sing "Jingle Bells"!!
Anyway after we got home we watched a little tv and drank coffee...and this is when I took my eye off Ellie for a second when I heard a loud thump and saw her on the floor. Initially she was quiet and then she started bawling her little eyes out. The bump formed quickly!! Gave us a little scare and while we put ice to keep the swelling down it was has to console her. Usually I'd jsut tell her get up and continue playing but this time I was a little concerned but I think she's okay now. You can see the bump below...it's subsided a lot from last night!
I really wished that I had put wooden floors like I had wanted to for a long time. The impact would have been so much less painful. Unfortunately everytime I start thinking about it I end up planning to change the look of the whole place. I really need to get some Home Decor ideas and actually did find a nice place that has Interior Design Ideas. This will be very helpful to me to make up my mind on the actual style I want. I'm tired of the old house look. I want some new ideas and maybe a new theme like the European Decors I saw. I usually get my stuff from a certain blue and yellow Swedish furniture store anyway. Hey the meatballs are great!!
