Your holidays are here. It’s time to catch a break from the mundane life that you so badly want to put behind. You plan your days and weeks.
You want to do your hair, visit your hairstylist and perhaps sport a new color. Burgundy highlights perhaps?
Then you want to do a full body massage and facial. Relax and breathe. Head to your favourite quiet spot and meditate. Breathe and relax away the stress that you’ve carried for the semester.
Start writing your book. You’ve always wanted to do that…
Oh wait… that’s all a blur now… everything you’ve planned for fades away like sudden ripples.
You are stuck at home now. 24/7. Because your daughter spotted the most opportune time to catch the influenza.
While she cuddles next to you, you feel like crying and screaming because before you could realise, you’ve been home for 2 weeks and your holidays are almost over. Your daughter is still having a fever and your hair still remains undone and uncolored. Your book still remains untouched.
Life has a way to teasing us. Pray God that my daughter recovers. Soon. Her body is tired and fighting so hard everyday.
