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.
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.
unfortunately 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.
