a quiet weekend, a brand new week

DSC_0012happy monday readers.  it is the beginning of a bright and shiny new week, full of possibility!

last week was a bit of a wash for me, it wasn’t a bad week, but with the kids taking turns being sick, i didn’t feel like i got as much accomplished as i had hoped.

i agreed create a batch of ogres for a stocking in february (and i am extremely excited and flattered that there is so much interest), and i am chomping at the bit to get them started.  but being home with the boys allowed me to shop for all of the needed supplies, so i am on the path to readiness.

IMG_4462besides suffering allergies and minor colds, we don’t really get sick much.  poor squirm was running a 103 degree fever on friday and didn’t do much besides relax on the couch.

fortunately he was much improved by saturday, but continues to tire easily and cough a lot when horizontal.  sadly his temp was back over 100 this morning, so it looks like he will get a bonus day off from school.

IMG_4468unfortunately i haven’t quite worked out the maternal logistics for when one kid is sick and the other isn’t. do i drag the feverish one out of bed so that we can deliver the well one to school?  i never imagined how much time i would spend agonizing over these kinds of issues.

    I can’t recall having that dilemma. I must have dragged the sick one around to get the well ones to school. My husband helps out a lot when the kids are sick and will take time off work to care for them. He’s a nurse so he does a better job than me with illness.
