Well…between illness and chaos, I’m so far behind it ain’t even funny. This week: husband’s birthday yesterday, the short kid’s birthday Wednesday, Thanksgiving Thursday, and going north on Friday for the weekend. So my catching up is running smack into a fresh week’s insanity and I feel like I’m in some kind of demented time warp.
Strangely enough, here’s my entry from November 15th of last year, titled “Under Quarantine”, the same used in my most recent post:
Please send coffee.
The tall kid’s down with the flu. I cannot say BLECH emphatically enough. The short kid has a nasty cold and a raging case of hysterical panic about his big brother due to the news saturation regarding the bird flu.
He’s gonna diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
So, I had to call the mom of the kid who comes over in the morning and rides to school with us so she could make other arrangements for tomorrow, and now we’re all barricaded in with bucket, tissues, and leather cleaning wipes.
Brother, can you spare a Dorito?
Next November, I’m wrapping my house in one of those ET-esque bio-bubbles. For now…onward.
