lesson learned

I learned today that although you have a schedule of chores to get done sometimes you need to be flexible and sometimes more important things come up which need to be done. Today my daughter woke up with chicken pox. I usually do my chores right after work instead I was taking my daughter to the doctor to have it confirmed for her school. Then off shopping to buy a few things we needed to help her get better and purchasing a new webkinz for her because she is sick. I have never done this before but this time it meant something to her so a special surprise she didnt expect or even ask for. She is such a trooper she really has a positive outlook on life. This morning she said well I got the chicken pox I am so happy that I have a lot of them so I wont get them again when I am an adult. She has not complained once. The only ones that seem to bother her are on the top of her back where her hair rubs. We put up her hair so it will help a bit.
If you have any tips or special tricks to use while she has chicken pox please let me know.
The doctor told us this is her prescription a - aveeno b - benadryl( we dont need this she is not itchy right now) c- calamine lotion. He also told her to stay away from pregnant women and not to take ibuprofen or aspirin while she has the chicken pox due to brain swelling.
So I need to do two loads of laundry tomorrow instead of one to get caught back up again.
She wont let me take any pics!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(
