Achy, Tired Eyes

For the past 3 days, both my eyes feel very, very heavy and achy. It’s not painful but very very tired and droopy. When I wake up in the morning, I feel my eyes covered with some sticky stuff, thus blurring my vision. It felt the same this morning though I have had 7 hours of sleep last night. It must be the lack of sleep and the continuous time I am having in front of the computer. Gosh, I hope I won’t go blind!! Again, I must must must go slow with my business and treat my body well, lest I spend even more… on medical bills. So no point earning so much when all goes to the doctors, right? I must drum this into my head!!

Another Eye Chalazion

Remember I posted earlier that Baby’s other eye was swollen and the ophthalmologist said that one of the oil glands is blocked? He prescribed her with some eye drops but after more than 2 weeks, it still looks a tad swollen. I am worried that the eye drops alone will not bring the swelling down. I am worried sick that she may need another eye chalazion surgery!!! Oh no, oh God, please spare Baby from another surgery. If the swelling does not subside by next week, off she’ll go to the ophthalmologist again next week. Please Lord, please spare Baby from another surgery!!

How Often?

Our bathroom and kitchen floor mats are washed everyday while our rugs are washed once every 2-3 days. Some of my friends commented that I wash them too frequently and I should only wash them once in a week. I think a week would be too long and the mats and rugs would be heavily coated with dirt and dust. With 3 young kids running in and out of the house bare footed, our mats and rugs are often stained black everyday. It would be too unhygienic to wash them once a week. How often do you wash your floor mats and rugs?

Crick On My Neck

I woke up this morning with a crick on my neck. This time, it’s caused by Baby. This fella is the worst sleeper ever. She moves round the bed like the clock’s hands and she kicks the hubs and I the whole night. I have now barricaded our bed with lots of pillows so that she doesn’t fall off the bed again. Last night, she hogged my pillow AGAIN and I was forced to sleep straight like a log with my head on only a quarter of my memory foam pillow. When I turned my head to check the time on the clock, I must have twisted my neck. Now, I can’t turn my head without feeling that painful crick. I must order the hubs to get me a box of Salon Pas to apply on my neck!

Wild Mango Tree / Bush Mango

I drink the fresh juice of lemon or lime after my meals everyday to help me neutralize the acid in my body. The sour juice also helps to aid in digestion and weight loss. Recently I found out that there is another fruit that can help in weight loss. The seeds of irvingia gabonensis (wild mango tree or bush mango), from a West African tree have been used for a long time as a weight loss ingredient. It can also help to lower cholesterol and blood glucose levels. I have not seen this product in our market yet. Would you dare to try it if it’s available here?

Looking Like A Walking Zombie

I have been looking like a walking zombie for the past few weeks. Not getting sufficient shut eye is paying a toll on my health and physical appearance. I feel sleepy all the time and just 2 days ago, my eyes felt really tired, heavy and droopy. Not to mention I also have dark circles under eyes and I have been applying face mask on my face to nourish it, less it gets wrinkled fast.

The Search For The Acne Lotion

The hubs is always after my acne lotion. I don’t always use it but when I do need it, I always have to search for it high and low. And I always cannot locate it. Whenever I ask him where he had put it, he will always tell me that he had put it back into my drawer. My tube of acne lotion had been missing for months and finally last week, I saw it sitting nicely inside the bathroom cabinet, among his toiletries, aaaargh!!

Too Much Work And Too Little Time

Though I only slept at 12:30am last night, I was already wide awake at 5am this morning. There are just too many things on my mind, too much work for me to settle with too little time on hand. I have orders from several customers to process, issues to settle with my supplier and a review on Texas Maritime lawyer to write and submit. I also have 10 other online assignments to write and submit by today! Life is tough being a work-from-home-mum.

Sleep Deprived

I am not completed above the weather yet. Still having cough and gosh, those stubborn phlegm are really hard to get rid of. Not getting sufficient shut eye is making my healing process slow. For the past one week, I have only been getting 4-5 hours of sleep each night. I have been spending a lot of time on my online store lately as business is getting better. I think I should defer my plan of bringing in men’s clothing to my store. I have enough on my plate now.
